The exhilarating conclusion to the best-selling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Dreadfully Ever After By Steve Hockensmith has been published by Quirk books.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was the surprise publishing phenomenon of 2009. It spent more than 50 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List and pioneered a bizarre microgenre of monster mash-up literature.
PPZ’s prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, was also a New York Times best seller and praised by everyone from Publishers Weekly (“This happy sacrilege is sure to please”) to comedian Janeane Garafalo (“I am enjoying the hell out of it!”).
Now the PPZ trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After.
The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating “unmentionables.” Of course, the ever-meddling Mrs. Bennet is anxious for them to settle down and produce an heir—but everything changes when poor Fitzwilliam is nipped by a dreadful. An apothecary is summoned, and his prognosis is unfortunate: Within days, Mr. Darcy is destined to transform into a zombie.
Elizabeth is distraught. She knows the appropriate course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she hears rumors of a miracle antidote being developed in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save the life of her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.
Complete with 15 dazzling illustrations, this final chapter in the bestselling series is sure to delight fans of Austen, horror, and literary mash-ups!
