Zombie Abbey is the first book of this kind I've read. I know there are quite a lot of this kind of books out there and I was curious. I didn't know what to expect and once I signed up I'll admit I was a little scared to read it.

Looking for your next Downton Abbey fix? With a few zombies thrown is? Well, look no further than this campy mashup of a Downton-like world and Walking Dead! Some characters from Upstairs may initially come across as difficult to like - because of course they do! - but once they're forced to work together with Downstairs and the villagers to fend off the zombie menace, you really see what they're made of!
I could not get into this book, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a wonderful story. It just wasn’t my type. So sadly, we have to part ways.
