Shakespeare Undead / Lori Handeland

4 out of 5 stars

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.  

Cute, fun, and refreshingly literate, with plenty of au courant pop-culture references.

Yes, William Shakespeare is a vampire (how do you think he had time to write all those plays and sonnets?) and yes, he does fight zombies. Get over it, and enjoy all the references to the Bard’s various works, including, most admirably, the sonnets. Find out who the Dark Lady really was. ;)

Is it silly? Yes. But is it a great way to spend an evening? Hell, yes.
