A Mini Review of Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)


Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Throughout the novel I was wishing for more. The Zombie/Warlock/Victorian/Steampunk mix was a great idea, but Dennard never went far enough or deep enough with it. I wanted desperately to root for the hero but in the quest to make him more human he became lackluster. I stuck with it because the heroine had great moxie. In the end we are offered a bit of resolution but there’s really no bread crumb trail to the next book – except that our hero leaves. Yes, I can imagine our heroine taking off after him, or him coming back to save her from something or other. However, I don’t really care enough about any of the characters to read about that next adventure. I did love what Dennard did with magic and zombies and tech but I wanted so much more than a dusting of it.
