Unexplainablenews.com is reporting strange phenomena in cemeteries in Scotland, Germany, Italy, and America. Only one individual knows what's happening - and why! This person also knows the one girl who can prevent an unspeakable and imminent catastrophe from taking place. But will she? When Caitlin Fletcher's mom disappeared (or left?) four years ago, Caitlin began suffering from breathless bouts of anxiety. Her new move to London, with her Dad and her brainiac sister, threatens to lead to more situations that will trigger panic. Now, she's having anxiety over the possibility of having anxiety! Caitlin's life takes a turn for the bizarre when she's tricked into climbing down a "rabbit hole", landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe - except it's crawling with savage, starving blood-eyed zombies. But what's scarier - a blood thirsty zombie, a panic attack....or the painful truth?!
Just from looking at the cover I pretty much stalked this book. I was so excited to get the chance to read it and being petrified of Zombies I wasn’t sure how I would feel once I started reading it. I can happily say if I was to come in contact with real zombies I would be totally ok with Zombie Princesses. This book was so much fun to read and yes I had my moments of looking out the window because that’s what zombies to do me.
I am not sure this review will do this book justice, I enjoyed it so much and the end, OH MY GOODNESS! I got the chills, I can’t wait for the next book. I adored the characters and I sort of figured something out without realized I figured something out until the end. 🙂
Caitlin suffers from panic attacks and is pretty much fearful of everything. I felt bad for her and I thought the entire explanation of her attacks were well done, I thought at times I was having one too. Natalie her sister is super smart but at times REALLY annoying, she was probably my least favorite only because she came across more arrogant than smart or cute. Jack is a sweetheart and I just adored how big his heart was. The Zombie Princesses, Cinderella being my favorite, where so much fun, I just LOVED them. Yes, I actually said that I loved a Zombie.
They story was so good and it has so much going on, I really enjoyed how well the situation was explained leaving a little more to learn along the way. The idea that the Enchanted Forest, Wonderland or Oz is over run by Zombies just makes this a whole new level of fairytale retelling.
I can’t recommend this book enough and I can’t wait for the next one, because like I said, the end gives me gooseybumps every time I think about it. Billy Phillips did a fantastic job retelling the world of fairytales. I recommend for teens, YA or even an adult looking for a fun & fast paced read that will make you look a little differently at those Disney Princesses.
