Shakespeare Undead by Lori Handeland

Shakespeare Undead
by Lori Handeland

Published: 2010
Genre: Historical, Romance, Zombies
Paperback: 304 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
Something wicked this way comes . . . and it keeps coming and coming and coming. . . .

William Shakespeare was one of history’s greatest writers, a master of words with a body of work that is truly impressive . . . some may say a little too impressive for a single man to accomplish in one lifetime. Perhaps, as many have speculated, he had assistance. Or perhaps the explanation is more . . . unusual.

Who was William Shakespeare?

Who was the Dark Lady of the Sonnets?

Why are the undead stalking the alleyways of London?

And can they be stopped?

Something is definitely rotten in the state of Denmark.

So brace yourself for a wild ride through twisted streets and shadowed graveyards of Elizabethan London, where you’ll discover how the Bard got his Bite.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): tibonage

Dare I say it? I will. I liked this mashup more than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ;-D

A different kind of Shakespeare in Love.

Nice blend of Shakespeare, zombie and zombie hunters with sprinkling of romance.

Author's note:
Who was the Dark Lady of Shakespeare's sonnets? Those works of excquisite beauty that portray tormented desire, temptation, betrayal, and eternal love for a woman with dark eyes, raven hair, dun skin--and a husband. Many have theorized, but no one knows the truth.

Until now...
