    Good read from the go. Good Steampunk, Alt. History, Zombie blend.

    This short was a good read from the go. Lets you get into the story and pulls you along. Only 2 downside's A) it is only about 50 pages out of 108. Other half is the start of the full novel. B) makes you want the whole novel to keep going. All in all another winner from Mr. Nassise keep them coming.
