Every family has its secrets… One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an axe and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies? Thrust into a horrific world where the walking dead are part of a shocking conspiracy to infect not only Fall River, Massachusetts, but also the world beyond, Lizzie battles to protect her sister, Emma, and her hometown from nightmarish ghouls and the evil forces controlling them.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I've always heard about Lizzie Borden, but I did not really know her story before reading this book. I decided to research a little to understand the book a little better. I found that this book, while just a book of fiction, also followed the truth very well. This subject was very well researched. This is a classic and very true crime story. Lizzie Borden is arrested for the murders of her father and stepmother. She is later found not guilty because of lack of evidence. BUT, What if she did do it? What if she had a good reason? What if they were zombies? This is what this story presents to you. A truth that is not so easy to believe, but makes perfect sense. It is quite a wild ride. Lizzie is attacked, she kills her family, and she finds out about a secret society that takes care of these types of things. She is also in fear for herself. Since, she knows others will not believe such a crazy story, of dead people walking the earth. She accepts her fate while protecting the world from the real truth of horrors unknown. This book was a crazy ride from beginning to end. It was also quite interesting. It follows the facts so well that, even though you know that zombies are not real. It still makes you wonder what if? I guess that makes this a really well written book. I'd definitely have to recommend this book to any horror, history, or zombie lover. It covered all three and is very much worth the read.
