The Zombies of Mesmer is a Gothic YA paranormal romance novel set in Victorian London. Follow Nicole Knickerbocker Hawthorn (Nickie Nick) as she discovers her destiny as The Protector, a powerful vampire hunter. Ashe, a dark and mysterious stranger, helps Nickie and her friends solve the mystery behind several bizarre disappearances. Suitable for teens, enjoyed by adults. With steampunk gadgets, mad scientists, bloodthirsty vampires, and mesmerized zombies, this paranormal adventure is sure to appeal to fans of Boneshaker, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the Vampire Diaries.
I thought that Miss Grey put together a well written tale of a seventeen year old girl Named Nicole Hawthorn. Her mother and father want her to fit in with high society and marry her off to one of the most eligible bachelors in all of London, whom Nicole does not fancy. That’s when she meets him as he looked through the window of her home as she had her debutante ball.
OM’s knowledge of the workings of London in the late 19th Centrury along with the Steampunk genre work to weave a masterful piece. This book was hard to put down once I started. I really loved the book through and through. Miss Grey has a way of making the reader feel as though they are on this very same journey with Nickie Nick.
I hope in the future she returns to Nicole’s outings as The Protector and Vampire Hunter along the streets of London. I want to know what the next adventure is. Can’t wait for the second book in this series.
