Head into the forest with one studly guy and a psycho girl in this twisted fairy tale novella with a chance of zombie.
Hans and his contentious fiancé, Liesel, are just two warm bodies who wander too far into a forest that was once the site of a zombie infestation. When they stumble upon a romantic cottage, Hans is completely unaware that the woman who will capture his heart--as well as his meaty flesh--is hidden away inside the charming home. To claim true love, Hans will have to endure captivity, unraveling mystery, and a brawl with zombies.
This is not your grannies Hansel and Gretel. It's not a mushy ya/teen romance either. Hans & Greta is a funny and sarcastic ride, with a few twists that I didn't see coming. There is also a lot of nods to other fairy tales throughout. It was extremely amusing to see how the author worked them in. Lastly there are zombies! Hellos, every good book needs a zombie or two! These zombies weren't your everyday comp,moan,comp zombies, but then again Hans & Gretel isn't your traditional fairy tale, so by the time they made their appearance I wouldn't have expected anything less.
I loved the main characters. They each had their own set of views, as well as flaws, and sometimes those views clashed with hysterical results. I couldn't wait to see what some of the characters would do next, especially the bad ones!
I really enjoyed the story overall. I definitely plan on reading more of Elson's work!
Hans & Greta is currently only .99 on Amazon so pick up a copy before more people find out about it and they up the price! (I'm not saying it wouldn't be worth it at a higher price, but this price is definitely a deal!)
