Another delightful Austen-era zombie book. I think it is the incongruity of the series that make this one and [b:Pride and Prejudice and Zombies|5899779|Pride and Prejudice and Zombies|Seth Grahame-Smith|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1320449653s/5899779.jpg|6072122] such interesting and light reading.

This book was downright awful. The story was all over the place and nothing was ever explained. What was "The Badness"? Who were " The Standing?"

The characters themselves left a ton to be desired. They were always having "aha!" moments that left the reader in the dark and very few of their decisions made any sort of sense. Mari caused things to get worse in some situations with her failure to listen to Jazz (oh no! the buildings are baaaad!") and Jazz did the same in others.

The prayer thing was also annoying as well. At first I thought it was supposed to be a fictional semi-magical story but then the characters started bringing up prayer and Badness with no explanations.… (mer)

First off, this book is supposedly classified as mystery fiction and Christian fiction...which makes no sense because there are Christian themes as well as Bible passages found through out the book and gypsy magic. The last time I looked Christianity doesn't play well with the supernatural, but what do I know. *rolls eyes* The plot was pretty good in its self but I often found I didn't know what was going on so I would have to go back a few pages and re-read, that got frustrating after a little bit. I also had no idea what was with some of the characters, they were just ok, the author doesn't really provide support and development to form them to the good and evil we are supposed to see. Eh...just didn't care for it this one much.… (mer)
