A fun little romp which sees vampire Shakespeare and his "Dark Lady" Kate reunited on Prospero's (yes, from The Tempest) island to fight zombies. Much of the fun lies with the word play; Handeland is brilliant in her mixing of contemporary and Shakespearean English. It's also fun to play "guess the work" as Shakespeare has so many ideas he wants to write - when he gets the chance.
This is the second in the series. I have yet to read the first (it's on my to read pile) but I didn't feel lost. This book stands alone well.
