Wunder Review


Author: A.R. Von
Publisher: Dream Z Dragon Publishing
American release date: February 14, 2013
Format/Genre/Length: EBook/ Paranormal Romance/16 pages
Overall Personal Rating: ★★★

Wunder is a wonder to her father. Her mother was bitten shortly before her birth by one of the zombies running rampant in the land; therefore Wunder is one quarter zombie. Luckily for her, she suffers none of the harsh side effects that go with being a zombie.

Fast forward from Wunder’s birth to her blossoming as a woman in love with a guy named Pete.

And that’s mostly what this book is about. Wunder and Pete connecting, hence the paranormal romance aspect.

Wunder is only 16 pages. As the first in a series, I have to hope the other books are longer, because this is barely long enough to get your feet wet.

There are problems with this book, I won’t lie. It would have benefited from better editing, eliminating those pesky tense changes. There is just not much meat to the story, either, but how much can you expect to see in 16 pages?

That being said, I saw the twist coming from the beginning. And I have to say the story involves a pet peeve of mine – two innocents, having sex for the first time, yet they seem to know exactly what to do, and there’s no pain, no blood, no mess of any kind.

So why do I give it three stars? Because deep down it’s cute and sweet, and has potential. I just think it should have been fleshed out before being released. There is no real story development, and little character. I’m looking forward to seeing more of what the author can do, if she’d allow herself time and room to do it in.

It’s a short, sweet read with an interesting twist on zombies, but it’s a little lacking too. But it’s also a nice first effort, Miss Von.
