Something wicked this way comes . . . and it keeps coming and coming and coming. . . .

William Shakespeare was one of history's greatest writers, a master of words with a body of work that is truly impressive . . . some may say a little too impressive for a single man to accomplish in one lifetime. Perhaps, as many have speculated, he had assistance. Or perhaps the explanation is more . . . unusual.

Who was William Shakespeare?

Who was the Dark Lady of the Sonnets?

Why are the undead stalking the alleyways of London?

And can they be stopped?

Something is definitely rotten in the state of Denmark.

So brace yourself for a wild ride through twisted streets and shadowed graveyards of Elizabethan London, where you'll discover how the Bard got his Bite.

Cute, fun, and refreshingly literate, with plenty of au courant pop-culture references.

This was like being at a Renaissance fair. A very quick and entertaining read and written really well. There were a couple of explicit scenes. I know a little about Shakespeare's works and some of the history around that period which helps but you could still enjoy this even if you didn't.

The only fault I found in the book is that during the first occurrence of a conflict between Kate and a zombie, Kate kicks him in his private parts which causes the zombie to fall to the ground clutching his same parts. It is later mentioned in the book that zombies do not feel pain. I'm not sure if it was later decided that zombies do not feel pain in the development of the story and this was just a possible over sight that was missed during proofing.

Other than that I really loved the book.

It amuses me that, now that I’m free to read whatever I wish again, the first book I choose ends up being another explicit romance. Readers don’t have to be familiar with Shakespeare’s work to enjoy this odd little tale, but it adds so much more if you are.
