    The course of true love never did run smooth, but this book does!

    I absolutely loved this book. Great characters, easy to read yet stayed true to many of the jargen of the time. I enjoyed it so much. It had all of my favorite things: paranormal romance and Shakespearean prose and poetry.

    his is a fun Elizabethan fantasy spoof

    In 1592 London, William Shakespeare walks at night in the Southwark neighborhood when he is attacked. Amateur chasseur hunter of the undead Katherine slices his throat. However, Shakespeare counterattacks the lad who tried to cut off his head; only to find he is a she.

    To his regret, the vampire bard is attracted to his chasseur especially after he steals a kiss from his dark lady. They soon team up on solving a mystery that threatens the undead and the living of London as zombie gangbangers troll the streets; while Shakespeare also wonders if this time he gets the happy ending with the girl instead of another tragedy in five acts; as the last one he wanted he lost to a Roman and ultimately the asp.

    Shakespeare Undead is a lighthearted frolic based on the concept that the Bard would have needed several lifetimes to produce the quantity and quality of his work; thus he must have been an immortal vampire. That twisted logic permeates the humorous spoofing story line. With references to the Elizabethan Era and to the masterpieces, Lori Handeland provides an amusing lampooning starting with the Dark Lady star of the sonnets trying to cut off the Bard's head; making one wonder just who the Fool is when he wants her with his other head. Over the top of Westminster Abbey, this is a fun Elizabethan fantasy spoof.

    A ELIZABETHAN PARANORMAL BASED ON SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS!

    SHAKESPEARE UNDEAD BY LORI HANDELAND is a Elizabethan paranormal set in 1592 London. It is well written with depth and detail. It is about vampires, zombies,suspense, ghosts, a chasseur(hunter), and Shakespeare. The characters will pull you into the story and keep your attention. It will give you new and different insight into William Shakespeare and his tragic plays. What if.. Shakespeare,who is now a vampire, meets the chasseur,hunter, Kate, while she is hunting zombies. They work together to fight the zombies and find out why there is so many of them. Kate later learns the truth about Shakespeare, she is falling in love with him. He is already in love with Kate. He would give his life for her and she would for him. I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy vampires, zombies, romance, suspense, ghosts and a new look at Shakepeare and his plays. This book was received for review and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and St. Martin's Press.
