Zombies at Tiffany’s Blurb
Kat Lightfoot thought that getting a job at the famed Tiffany’s store in New York would be the end to her problems. She has money, new friends, and there’s even an inventor working there who develops new weapons from clockwork, and who cuts diamonds with a strange powered light. This is 1862, after all, and such things are the wonder of the age.
But then events take a turn for the worse: men and women wander the streets talking of ‘the darkness’; bodies vanish from morgues across town; and random, bloody attacks on innocent people take place in broad daylight.
Soon Kat and her friends are fighting for their lives against a horde of infected people, with only their wits and ingenuity to help them.
A steampunked story of diamonds, chutzpah, death and horror from the blood-drenched pen of Sam Stone.
My Review of Zombies at Tiffany’s
Zombies, steampunk and diamonds? I knew when I saw this book at the Sci-Fi weekender that I had to read it!
It’s set at the time of the American civil war where a zombie outbreak starts spreading in New York. Kat Lightfoot, a young woman who has just started working at Tiffany’s, takes refuge from the zombie hordes at work with a mismatched group of her colleagues and customers.
I like that Sam Stone has not followed the usual zombie rules, and has created something different and unexpected here.
The heroine is intelligent and interesting, and I cared about what happened to her.
The mix of steampunk and horror works well and results in a short, exhilarating read that I enjoyed every moment of.
