Review ~ Wunder by A.R. Von


(Blurb from Amazon)
The Wunder Series from Debut Author, A.R. Von
A Semi-Zombie Erotic Treat

Wunder isn’t your average girl, in fact, she isn’t even an average human. In a world once ravaged by Zombies, she was born amidst the chaos.
Where can a girl like her find the man of her delicious dreams? She has an idea and it leads her to the hottest new club in town, where she finds what’s been missing in her life. 
Pete has his own secrets to tell, and when they come together, another story unfolds while the sparks fly.


My review
I will preface this review with the fact that I am not a fan of zombie books. I'm trying to broaden my horizons and delve into this genre that seems to be gaining popularity. That said, I went into this book skeptical and came out a fan. This story was as much about discovery and coming of age, as it was about the emotions associated with the cut of that first love.

We all experienced the butterflies in the tummy and anxiety that came with that first crush. A.R. Von does an exceptional job of conveying this, while capturing what it is to feel different than everyone else, and then to find that someone who accepts you, quirks and all.

I’m an emotional reader and tend to seek a deep connection to the characters I read. This book is reminiscent of that time in life when your heart is open to the possibilities and promise of the future. It took me back to that awkward time in young adulthood when you feel like every decision that you make is life or death.

And Pete, well he gets my Mr. Cutie Cute award.  J

On a more serious note, the thing I found particularly strong about A. R. Von’s writing was her ability to elicit emotion from a reader. This is a rare gift in a beginning writer. Wunder is such a strong heroine, despite the many obstacles she’s had to overcome. She commands respect, but is completely comfortable with submitting sexually to Pete. I am a champion of strong literary heroines, so this was a major draw for me.

Did I mention Pete was hella-hot? I did? Oh, well just wanted to make sure that I mentioned that.

And the ending...I really wasn't expecting that! I laughed. I cried. I pouted when I reached the end, because I wanted more, damn it!

*clutching my Kindle and whimpering* Please, A.R. I want more. Please, can I have more Wunder?

Wunder is an excellent, 5 star treat for paranormal, romance and zombie lovers alike!
