Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“With the zombie Austen mashup mania showing no sign of abating, this is a must-read for fans and a must-buy for the libraries serving them.”—Booklist Online

“The further they get from Jane Austen, the better the zombie mash-up books become. Enter Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith.”—McClatchy News Service

“A masterpiece of parody and wit.”—Fangoria

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah Vess
Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are enjoying their life as newlyweds until an average battle against unmentionables turns sinister. Darcy is bitten and Elizabeth cannot bring herself to behead him as she knows she should. The possibility of an antidote being secretly brewed in London takes her and the other Bennets in search of it. Kitty and Mary Bennet come forward to play out their own arcs while the mysterious daughter of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Anne, befriends her own demons. Lots of action, and cleverly devilish, this twisted tale is tastefully gruesome while maintaining a Victorian charm. It sounds contradictory, and it is, but it works. This is the final book in the "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" trilogy, and will satisfy fans' enthusiasm for the series. It is violent, with scenes of zombie men, women, and children in different stages of decay being hacked to pieces with weapons ranging from daggers to katanas to pistols. This is only for mature young adult audiences and above who can take horror as humor. For those that can, this is surely a series to be enjoyed. Reviewer: Renee Farrah Vess

    Enjoyed the other 2 more

    I liked that the story continued, but I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other two (Pride & Predjudice and Zombies, and Dawn of the Dreadfuls). I felt this one lost a little of the Jane Austen style. It was amusing at times.

    Great book

    I read this book before the first and loved it. Some of it's kind of gory, but it's overall a fun read!

    Hate to see it end

    Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's love has survived it seems. Dreadfully Ever After picks up after the nuptials and takes off fast onto new adventures for the couple. In the company of zomibies or dreadfuls, ninjas, and a crazy Aunt their relationship is challenged once again. The future looks horribly bleak for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth must battle through her antagonists to save his life.
    I was afraid that this installment would prove to be overkill, but I was pleasantly surprised. There seemed to be more action and I found myself eager to pick the book back up again. I highly recommend this series and especially this installment.

    Love it!

    I really liked this book. It may have been predictable but by the end if it I was for sure smiling. A definite must read after the first one.

    Such a great book, Loved it loved it loved it!

    All trilogies should be this good. I bought this the day it came out. I wasn't going to b/c I just wanted to remember how the second book ended and pretend they lived happily ever after. I was afraid of how things might end b/c soo many series kind of lose their sizzle by the third book...but okay, yeah, like I wasn't going to want to read more about the Darcy's, Bennetts. This book more than does the first two books justice, beyond! From the first page it's nothing but excitement, zombie fighting, heartbreak, drama, fighting for the one you love...oh I could go on and on. Steve Hockensmith has a gift for creating characters you want to read about and never let go of!!!

    Awesome End To the "Zombie' Trilogy

    Dreadfully Ever After, written by Steve Hockensmith, is the final chapter in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy. Set in Regency England, Hockensmith continues the story of Lizzie and Darcy and their epic battle against the "dreadfuls".All love stories that end happily should go on being that way, right? Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth have been married for four years when Darcy begins noticing how depressed Elizabeth seems. Thinking she is unhappy with their life together he decides to bring it up to her during one of their walks throughout Pemberley. As the two are discussing the cause of Elizabeth's unhappiness a young child emerges from behind a tree. Recognizing the young boy as a servant's child, Darcy kneels down to ask the child why he is alone. Darcy realizes all too late that the young boy is a dreadful and is unable to block the attack, causing the young boy to take a huge chunk out of Darcy's neck! Elizabeth flings the boy against a tree, causing his head to explode and rushes back to Darcy's side, noting that he is losing a lot of blood. She knows that he is going to turn into a dreadful and that she must behead him before he turns. Elizabeth looks at Darcy's face and knows that she can't lose him. Unable to behead him she hoists him on her back, rushes to Pemberley, covers his wound, and rushes to write a letter to the only person who can help her, Darcy's aunt, Lady Catherine. Lady Catherine comes to attend Darcy in person with a tonic that slows the turning process. Lady Catherine extracts from Elizabeth a promise that she will go to London to pursue news of a cure and leave Darcy to Lady Catherine and Anne. Elizabeth uneasy about leaving Darcy alone with Anne and Lady Catherine realizes she has no other choice, agrees and leaves for London. Why does Lady Catherine want full control over Darcy's health? What do she and Anne have up their sleeves? Will Elizabeth discover a cure? With this being the final chapter in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy, it was important in my eyes to see all three books tie together. Hockensmith definitely succeeds on this front. He takes the characters from the first two novels and infuses them with a whole new set of "ridiculous" characters. The characters that he's created both in the prequel and this novel are definitely worth taking notice of. He creates brilliantly multi-layered humorous characters that add humor and depth to the story. Most people would respond to this by thinking, "It's a book about zombies, how deep can it be?" Let me tell you: this book does get deep. It tackles very existential questions, chiefly what should you listen to more, your heart or your brain? It also begs the question: how far would you go to save the one you love?
    My biggest complaint about the book was its ending. It seemed so rushed compared to the rest of the book. The events unfold at a fairly even pace, but the last 20 pages just seemed like a compressed and hastily constructed ending. Georgiana's story was completely forgotten throughout the entire novel. She starts out as an active member of the story, but then is sent away on an errand for Lady Catherine. The next time we see her is at the very end of the novel and I sat there wondering what really happened to her. Where did she go? If you're new to the P&P&Z trilogy my advice would be to stick with the prequel and the sequel, as they are the shining stars here.

    Great sequel!

    This is almost better than the prequel and a great followup to the original mash-up. The humor is subtle and sometimes dark but very good. I look forward to Steve's next book, Cadaver in Chief.
