Coming Attraction: Dead Reckoning

I feel like I've been talking a lot about female main characters who dress as boys to make their way in the world. So you should know by now, any story that uses this plot element goes immediately on my wishlist (and settles somewhere near the top. Don't know why, it just never gets old.)  Add in steampunk, zombies and the old west, and we've got ourselves a HELLS YEAH.
Dead Reckoning by Mercedes Lackey & Rosemary Edghill
336 pages
Expected publication: June 5th 2012 by Bloomsbury USA
Jett is a girl disguised as a boy, living as a gambler in the old West as she searches for her long-lost brother. Honoria Gibbons is a smart, self-sufficient young woman who also happens to be a fabulous inventor. Both young women travel the prairie alone – until they are brought together by a zombie invasion! As Jett and Honoria investigate, they soon learn that these zombies aren’t rising from the dead of their own accord … but who would want an undead army? And why? This gunslinging, hair-raising, zombie western mashup is perfect for fans of Cowboys vs. Aliens and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.


  1. Oh hells yeah, indeed! Girls dressing as boys has the exact same affect on my TBR, and since I'm a lifelong Lackey fan, I MUST read this one. Hadn't heard of it yet, thanks for the heads up!

  2. I picked up an ARC of this one at TLA last month. I can't wait to dive into this one.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
