Sheri is one of them but because she's been bitten previously, no one trusts her. However overall the pace was good and the writing intriguing.

On one page, Little Red Riding-Hood's wolf lurks next to a piece of the story. All I had to see was the word 'zombies' and I was done for. By the mid-20th century, six successive forms had been identified: two 8th-century Arabic translations of the Hazār afsāna, called Alf khurafah and Alf laylah; a 9th-century version based on Alf laylah but including other stories then current; the 10th-century work by al-Jahshiyārī; a 12th-century collection, including Egyptian tales; and the final version, extending to the 16th century and consisting of the earlier material with the addition of stories of the Islamic Counter-Crusades and tales brought to the by the.

Because wanting to get in a possible zombie's pants is pretty messed up. Every night Sheri reads to Aleksy from where she is chained to his bedroom wall. My Review: I loved the idea of Arabian Nights mixed with end of the world zombie uprising. When I first heard about this title I was intrigued by it, but in the end it was a bit of a let down.
Since most people had stopped doing people things, the natural world had grown vast and loud. She was chained to walls, moved with shackles, never able to get close to anyone, i It has been five years since the infection spread throughout the world. I enjoyed the majority of the story. This was a good story, and if you like your romance to include zombies you will enjoy it. The story is well written. My brother Jason said it was about time.

Being a novella, I was hoping for something fast paced and sexy, but really it's bogged down with a lot of useless flashbacks. Many characters fall back into poor luck after initially securing a fortune, but manage to recapture it through such perseverance. There were no massive info dumps and the past was cleverly weaved into the present to give you a completed story by the end. I love that this is a zombie tale, that Sheri reads, that she risks her life to find books, that she does this to ensure her sister remains protected in the camp.
