    Zombie-Fighting Black Women Post Civil War

    Justina Ireland has given us a great alt-history novel that depicts slavery, and especially its aftermath, in quite the unique and compelling way - with zombies and extremely capable black women who are adept, trained warriors. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, so much so that I spent New Year's Eve finishing it and was pleased with its ending. I was truly fascinated by Jane McKeene's life as an Attendant and the combat school where she trained to learn how to dispatch zombies and protect high-class white women. The alt-history of the South and post Civil War is woven into the narrative effortlessly, but it doesn't shy away from presenting it. I found myself wanting more than once while reading the novel to see Ms. Ireland's notes on the world she's created, but also the Native and Negro Education Act to get more backstory on the history of this law. I was so fascinated by its purpose. The world-building here is rich, and the alt-history, which includes the ugliness of slavery and racism, establishes this as a credible world where strong, adept black women are needed to fight back the overwhelming the zombie threat. Ms. Ireland gives us a somewhat satisfying, if open ending to her novel - and I say "somewhat" because I wanted more. I wanted to know what happens next with Jane McKeene, Red, Jack, and Katherine. Based on the ending, I'm hoping we get their next story soon.

    Movie Needs To Be Made.

    I feel that this had a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter, and I like that and it means it's a good book. I loved the ending and I'm not going to spoil it for anybody but what I am going to say is it desperately needs a sequel. Overall I loved this book and I hope you write a sequal.
