Plague Nation

Plague Nation is the second book in the Ashley Parker zombie series and I enjoyed it a lot. It isn’t as good as book one, Plague Town, but it is still a really fun read. Ashley is a great heroine. I love her snark and attitude, but she’s also genuine and caring. This continues to show through her actions towards her friends. Gabriel on the other hand is a strange one. In the first book I thought he was soooo sexy, but here he is a little generic. I got…

Kim Newman - Anno Dracula

Anno Dracula (Anno Dracula #1) by Kim Newman Titan Books (May 2011) | Paperback, 547 pages | Horror Anno Dracula started off very promising. The mixture of Victorian England, real events and famous characters from history along with real-life people was enough of a draw for me to pick it up. It looked as though the author was going to take Jack the Ripper’s crimes and give them a paranormal twist, which I did find interesting. However, the story was very slow and didn’t pick up any pace. Each chapter was more like a ‘spot the…
