Booklist Review: "Year 2195. Postapocalyptic survivors start rebuilding a society influenced by the Victorian era. Steam engineering, tablet computers, corsets, . . . and zombies? Nora Dearly's world is flipped when she is kidnapped by Bram, a handsome, kind, brave zombie. Not only do zombies exist in New Victoria, but there are good ones and really bad ones and both want Nora. As she begins to adjust and thrive in the undead army that has been working to find a cure for a deadly disease, New Victoria becomes infested, and her friends are in danger. What can a proper lady and an army of slowly rotting soldiers do to help? Habel is an ambitious author, and this is a feat of multigenre proportions. She cleverly builds her novel to appeal to multiple readers. The high stakes of the plot are what will hook them, but the characters, particularly Bram and Nora, will keep them turning pages. A successful gamble by Habel.--Fort, Bethany Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Centuries after a series of catastrophes destroys much of the planet, two human civilizations based on two loose 21st-century interpretations of Victorian England thrive in South America. When 16-year-old New Victorian Nora Dearly is kidnapped by zombies, she is rescued by a company of the undead, led by Bram Griswold, a Punk soldier suffering from a disease called the Lazarus syndrome that reanimated him after his death and will soon kill him for good. First-time author Habel shifts smoothly among the first-person perspectives of several characters, and as the attraction between Nora and Bram grows, they battle an outbreak of the virus and contend with a conspiracy that involves Nora's late father, who had devastating secrets of his own. Though weighed down in places by cluttered exposition and a meandering plot, Habel's debut is a heart-pounding and nontraditional take on the steampunk and zombie apocalypse genres. Nora and her friend Pamela are strong, capable heroines, and Nora and Bram's touching and tender relationship, with its emphasis on equality and living in the moment, feels particularly special.
