* First 2018 Review! "... A fun and fast-paced story. I very much enjoyed the different perspective of the circumstances around the murder of Lizzie's parents. The author does a good job of giving the reader historical fiction without ruining the original story or creating an entirely false world. I recommend this book for anyone looking for a cool twist on an old mystery." --Melanie @ FangFreakinTastic Reviews - 4 fangs!
* New Halloween Review! It's a long and thoughtful review. Here's part: "...Of the other main characters it is Lizzie who stands out as the best one. She is strong willed, but there was also a vulnerability to her character on the many occasions she bites off more than she can chew. ...A good yarn told in a well written and engaging style."--The Rotting Zombie - 7 of 10 zombie heads!
** Recommended in Liz's Book Club 2017 (Kenosha News) - "A fun and gory read!"
New 5-star review! "...The story flows so well and will give you goosebumps... Might make you gag from the epic detail used throughout this book. I am a huge horror fan, so this did not disappoint at all! If you like historical horror, read this! Or Lizzie might hack you next!"--Destiny, NerdGirlOfficial.com
Another 5-star review on Amazon! "...This actually "solves" the mystery of who did it and why, as well as adding another reason why Lizzie became a recluse in her later life. The writing is consistently clever and Verstraete is equally good at depicting standard horror scenes and family ones in which Lizzie and her sister Emma (who joins her in fighting zombies) take care of one another. There are twists all the way through and several poignant moments as well."
Latest review! 4 1/2 stars! "...It was interesting that Verstraete put quotes at the beginning of each chapter from the trial of Miss Borden. The plot of the story follows Lizzie from the murders, through the trial and after. I can tell the author did her research, including the clothes, language of the times, buildings, etc., giving it an authentic feel. The author writes well, which always makes a book more enjoyable. A recommended read!" -- Myra Nour Book Chat
New review! "...The unexpected part for me is that we start off with the killing of Lizzie's parents. I was expecting that to be the crux of the story, but it isn't. It's the opener! Where this book differs from others in this genre, that I've read anyway, is that there are historical facts pulled in. Verstraete adds in news clippings and first account witnesses as well as pieces from the actual trial of Lizzie Borden. I actually learned a few things from this book! It also lends an extra facet of realism to the story..." -- Shawn R., Literary Litter
* Latest 5-star review! "...It follows the facts so well that, even though you know that zombies are not real. It still makes you wonder what if? I'd definitely have to recommend this book to any horror, history, or zombie lover. It covered all three and is very much worth the read..." -- Stormi, Boundless Book Reviews
* Great 5 star review! (see pg. 12 below in full screen.) In part: "...A wonderfully-written piece and a delight to read. If you are looking for a solid read, horror or otherwise, this is a book worth considering."--Kaitlyn, Dec. '16, Uncaged Book Reviews (See magazine)
"... I enjoyed this version of Lizzie. A thrilling read from the get go, with well fleshed out characters.. and plenty of zombie action for all who love the genre." 4 stars--FUOnlyKnew
"I had so much fun reading this book! Lizzie is a strong willed heroine who must help solve the mystery of what is causing the zombie outbreak and how her father was involved, all while trying to stay out of prison. I loved her bad-assitude and take charge manner as she learns how to deal with the ever rising zombie threat."-- 4.5 stars -Horror Maiden Reviews
"...A lot of action... A wonderful idea for a book. .." --5 Sparkles - What's Beyond Forks
