Review: Bloody Zombies, by Victoria Leybourne!

This is my first book review in ages… but I just had to say how much I love this tongue-in-cheeky little book set in a “hormone-soaked” all-girls school. The narrator — an English teacher — doesn’t just have awesome language skills; she has guts and brains and knows how to use them.

What do you expect from a lady whose given name is Boadicea? For one thing, you might expect her to wield a mean field hockey stick and cricket bat. And she does.

So when the sexy new science teacher invites Boadicea out, who will end up keeping their “Braaiinnnns”?

“Chaps and chapesses” alike should be amused by all the drooling, oozing goings-on.

As for me, I give Victoria Leybourne’s novella  5 gold stars. Or diamonds. Or whatever.

Oh, and after I read the book, I invited her to contribute a story to the troll anthology. Nuf said?

  1. Sounds like it would give St Trinian’s a run for its money

    I don’t read zombie stories, but maybe I’ll try this one. If Lindy likes it, it’s got to be good!

  3. Thanks for the reblog, Carol!

    Another hot tip from the Oracle of all things Indie, Lindy Moone. She hasn’t failed me yet, so looking forward to this sometime in the future, even though I “don’t read zombie books”. First time for everything.

  5. Thanks, John. I actually don’t read zombie books either… this is not a typical zombie book, I think.

  6. I actually *bought* Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It was mildly amusing but barely worth the 99 cents I paid. Mark Capell’s novel Deadstop Cafe is good *in spite of* the zombies. I bought but still haven’t read Patrick Freivald’s YA zombie novel “Twice Shy” – and for the life of me I just can’t fathom why zombies (rotting flesh!) appeal to anyone. Ghosts are clean and neat by comparison, and rarely (if ever) eat people.
