Review: Bite Me by P.J. Schnyder

This is the first book in the London Undead series by P.J. Schnyder. I am not normally a big zombie fan, so I will be honest and say that if not for the werewolf in the blurb, I would have probably passed on this book. And I would have lost on a great new voice. At only about 90 print pages, this isn't a major time investment, but it sure does pack a powerful punch. There is so much going on, I can barely believe the author managed it to get it all in, especially as I never felt like things were too overly rushed. Yes, things move quickly, but for all intents and purposes, London has become a war zone. Emotions are heightened, actions are magnified and responses are accelerated. In other words, the speed of their courtship seemed appropriate in the circumstances.

The story starts off with Seth, the London pack leader, helping draw blood and tissue samples from one of the zombies that has infested the city of London. As pack leader of the local Werewolf clan, he has gone public to assist the country with policing and protecting those who were unable to escape a zombie infestation that brought the paranormal to national and public attention. One of Seth's wolves, Danny, is a medic and biologist who is trying figure out where the zombies have suddenly come from. Seth sends Danny back to the lab to go ahead and start running tests on the samples, and continues on patrol. It is not long before he comes across some humans fighting off zombies and jumps in to intervene.

Maisie had gone out for a stroll to clear her head, and stumbled across a small family trying unsuccessfully to escape from a zombie. Before long, the screaming and yelling attracted more and more zombies, till Maisie reached a point of last stand. Just as she was concerned about running out of ammo, a werewolf showed up and started assisting. Maisie was able to get the family to head off to safety, but she knew that she would never be able to make a run for it. Especially with her injured leg she received from a previous zombie attack. Seth finishes off the zombies and realizing why Maisie couldn't run off, decides to carry her back. And thus begins the courtship and romance of Maisie and Seth.

I loved the unique voice and vision that I experienced with this book. It was the perfect blend of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. Maisie was a smart mouthed kick ass chick and Seth was all snarly Alpha. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads and happily dove right into book 2.

Book one of London Undead

Few people walk the streets of London since the zombie outbreak, but that's not an issue for Seth. As a werewolf, he can handle himself and save humans reckless enough to take a nighttime stroll. While on patrol he comes across a group of people under attack. The one woman brave enough to take a stand against the zombies catches his eye—and not just because of her way with a gun. Learning the beautiful woman is homeless and fends for herself only intensifies his urge to protect and care for her.

Maisie can't help but admit that she's attracted to her werewolf rescuer. She's drawn to Seth's strength and ferocity, and finds herself opening up to him in ways she never imagined, even though she's determined to not rely on Seth or anyone else. She doesn't want another person to get hurt—or die—for her sake. She has enough scars, physical and emotional, from the last time…

But when Seth realizes something is drawing the zombies to Maisie, there may be nothing he can do to save her…

  1. Oh awesome! I have it on my tbr list but like you I'm not a huge zombie fan so hadn't picked it up yet. Will move it up the list. I'm always so impressed by authors that can really make a novella work like this. Thanks for the heads up Judy!

  2. For some reason I am thinking that this will be a trilogy. I will be posting the review for the second book soon. So stay tuned. ;)


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
