Book Review: Bite Me (London Undead #1) by PJ Schnyder




Few people walk the streets of London since the zombie outbreak, but that's not an issue for Seth. As a werewolf, he can handle himself and save humans reckless enough to take a nighttime stroll. While on patrol he comes across a group of people under attack. The one woman brave enough to take a stand against the zombies catches his eye—and not just because of her way with a gun. Learning the beautiful woman is homeless and fends for herself only intensifies his urge to protect and care for her.

Maisie can't help but admit that she's attracted to her werewolf rescuer. She's drawn to Seth's strength and ferocity, and finds herself opening up to him in ways she never imagined, even though she's determined to not rely on Seth or anyone else. She doesn't want another person to get hurt—or die—for her sake. She has enough scars, physical and emotional, from the last time…

But when Seth realizes something is drawing the zombies to Maisie, there may be nothing he can do to save her…

The premise of this book, werewolves fighting zombies, caught my interest, so I grabbed it.  I was definitely disappointed.  It's not a long story, so little time was allowed for character or world development.  Bite Me is the first book in the London Undead series by PJ Schnyder, so I expected some detailed background about how the zombies came about and more information about the werewolves coming out to fight them.  Very little detail was given.

The only character with much background shown was Maisie, so she seems more of a real person.  She has a great spitfire spirit.   However, the relationship between her and Seth feels non-existent.  There's no real chemistry shown between them.  There are some explicit sex scenes.

The action moves along quickly, but there's not much of it.  When the zombies attacked, I didn't feel any emotion from anyone. It's just not a book I'd recommend.

 I give this book 2 Bookworms.
