Cinderella and Zombies by Emily Casey

I’ve always loved the fairytale of Cinderella. I mean, every girl wants to be swept off her feet by a prince, right? Well, this girl just happens to be really good at killing zombies. And so is the prince.
      Prince Kent loves to fight. He loves to help his people and be at the front lines, defending his kingdom. His father, on the other hand, wants to keep him safe and sound inside the palace walls. He also wants Kent to gent married. Immediately. When a gathering of the kingdom’s eligible women turns into a bloody war against the attacking zombies, Cinderella may be the only one that can save the day. She knows how to kill zombies and she has done so before. Cinderella and Prince Kent must team up to save the kingdom and the day.
      Hands down, the best part of Cinderella and Zombies was the heroine, Cinderella. She doesn’t really care what other people think of her and she is not afraid to stand out of a crowd. She was strong and killed a zombie even when a soldier wouldn’t. He weapon of choice is the throwing knife and she has awesome aim. I mean AWESOME. But she can also use other things to kill zombies, such as a glass slipper. She was an amazing heroine that I thoroughly enjoyed reading about. Prince Kent was also an entertaining character because he really cared about his people and he was incredibly brave, so that makes him all right in my book. He’s also a prince, so that’s a plus too.
      I really, really loved this rendition of Cinderella because I love zombies and Cinderella is a strong individual with larger problems than getting a prince to marry her. Also, in this book, Cinderella’s family wasn’t mean towards her, which is not traditional, but I liked it much better.
      If you’re looking for a fun, fast read, I would definitely recommend this book. It had action, a great heroine, and a dash of romance. Amazing!

It was an awesomely fun read! 5 Smileys!
