Will was not only one of the greatest writers in the English language, he was also a necromancer. In exchange for a front row seat to history, Will supplied zombie armies. Sure, he's sorry now. Hey, he's refused to raise a shuffling, shambling corpse for years. And the talent--which comes only to a necromancer who's become a vampire--is extremely rare. So why are there so many zombies strolling around London? Will needs to find out.

Cute, fun, and refreshingly literate, with plenty of au courant pop-culture references.

This was like being at a Renaissance fair. A very quick and entertaining read and written really well. There were a couple of explicit scenes. I know a little about Shakespeare's works and some of the history around that period which helps but you could still enjoy this even if you didn't.

The only fault I found in the book is that during the first occurrence of a conflict between Kate and a zombie, Kate kicks him in his private parts which causes the zombie to fall to the ground clutching his same parts. It is later mentioned in the book that zombies do not feel pain. I'm not sure if it was later decided that zombies do not feel pain in the development of the story and this was just a possible over sight that was missed during proofing.

Other than that I really loved the book.

It amuses me that, now that I’m free to read whatever I wish again, the first book I choose ends up being another explicit romance. Readers don’t have to be familiar with Shakespeare’s work to enjoy this odd little tale, but it adds so much more if you are.
