Publisher's Summary

The flu pandemic of 1918 took millions of souls within a few short weeks. Except it wasn't flu, and death gave them back.
Seventeen-year-old Ella copes the best she can by caring for her war-injured father, scrubbing the floors, and slaying the undead that attack the locals. Like rats, these vermin spread pestilence with every bite. Ella's world collides with another when she nearly decapitates a handsome stranger - one who is very much alive.
Seth deMage, the new Duke of Leithfield, has returned to his ancestral home with a mission from the War Office: control the plague of vermin in rural Somerset. He needs help; he just didn't expect to find it in a katana-wielding scullery maid.
Working alongside Seth blurs the line between their positions, and Ella glimpses a future she never dreamed was possible. But in overstepping society's boundaries, Ella could lose everything - her home, her head, and her heart.

A new favourite.

I am certain that I don't speak eloquently enough to say how much I love this book! I have a new favourite author and audiobook performer! A great new twist on an old story. It is a cross between Jane Austin and Stephanie Myer. The characters are well developed and the story really kept my attention... I would sit in the car with it running just to hear more. I love Ella. Her inner monologue was a hoot. The reader nailed the characters and did a great job. At no point did her voice distract you from the story as many can when the change characters. Well worth the investment as an audio book.

Took me in right away!

Great story. Loved the fact that it timing of the story was set right after WW I. Historical yet modern Cinderella story.
It would have been just perfect if there had been a different narrator. Some of the character voices were just obnoxious.
