    1. Cross posted at Outlaw Reviews and at Shelf InflictedSo much promise, so disappointing.London in the early 20th century, zombies, a prisoner guard romance, a labor camp ruled by a powerful family, and sweet, sweet honey What s not to love The story starts out with Victor, a young singer, and other prisoners being transported by cattle car to the Dal family s work camp, known as Honeyhill, where they will serve their sentences Since Victor is blindfolded and hands bound behind his back, he has no [...]

    2. 4.5 Stars.I don t know why I waited so long to read this.For fans of K.A Merikan this is a highly recommend read.Part of the Zombie Gentlemen World but can definitely be read as a standalone.October 1907Victor is a beautiful young man,used to the finer things in life.Captured for an indiscretion he s been sent to Honeyhill farm run by the ruthless Dal family.He soon realizes that in order to survive this nightmare he must come up with a plan when he catches the eye of one of the guards he goes i [...]

    3. 4.5 stars I can never look at honey the same way againOr beesStung is set in the Zombie Gentlemen universe, and runs parallel to The Copper Horse Love , I believe I was so happy to be in this world again This is a love story between a slave and his guard Or so I thought, because really, it s than that But I won t spoil it for you.Victor finds himself captive in Honeyhill and holy shit this is how the Dals make their honey EWW But soon things will heat up between him and his cruel guard, Crunch. [...]

    4. 4 Stars especially for that realistic ending Stung was set in a Victorian Dystopia world whereby a zombie plague has created an oppressed society struggling to co exist with the undead This story is actually part of the Zombie Gentlemen series by K.A Merikan which consist of a pair of talented authors, Kat and Agnes Merikan Eventhough I have yet to read the rest of the series, I did not encounter any problem following this standalone story Basically Stung was about Victor a pretty boy from the c [...]

    5. THIS BOOK IS SWEET No pun intended Okay, some pun intended.Generally spoiler free because you gotta read this.This book was generously given to me as an ARc by Kat who comprises 50% of the tag team duo, K.A Kerikan I was really looking forward to this book because, well, I this kinda book is right up my alley M M, thriller horror, and weird All three elements that I love in books, but you don t see too often If you like those kinds of books, pick this badboy up.I really enjoyed the writing I lik [...]

    6. Unexpected If there s one thing I ve come to expect from Merikan is that wherever you think you re going, you re not All of the stories have these bizarre twists that have you spinning around going, Waitweren t we Crunch, boy do I love any guard with a moniker like that, is a hoot Not going to say much because I really feel that experiencing this story without to much foreknowledge is a plus Victor, well he has some skills and enough panache to pull you along And Honeyhill, it s unique with some [...]

    7. 4.5 starsHoneyhill, such an evocative name for this bucolic setting grass covered hills, apple orchards baking in the sun, busy bees gently buzzing on the warm breeze pollinating, fertilizing But, when the train spits the unfortunate Victor, and his fellow prisoners out, it s into a place of nightmare, torture, and death This lovely prison, Honeyhill farm, fenced off to keep out the slavering zombies that surround it, hides all sorts of evil and danger he could still sense the earthy, somewhat w [...]

    8. What a wonderful surprise this book was Not having read any zombie books before I wasn t really sure what to expect but it certainly wasn t this I loved Crunch, the gentle giant prison guard who wasn t all he pretended to be Crunch had a job to do but but underneath it all he he had a tender side to him as well which was such a contrast to life on the camp, surrounded by zombies From the beginning Crunch was drawn to Victor, a pretty boy, newly arrived to the camp and the moments they shared wer [...]

    9. Un Merikan de pura cepa Original, crudo, grotesco y elegante Con ese estilo tan particular que tienen los mejores ejemplares de su colecci n, y que yo adoro Ya el arte de tapa solo se merece este puntaje.

    11. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review It s 1907, twenty years after a zombie plague has altered the course of history, and Victor, a singer from a good family, has just been enslaved by the mob at a remote farm surrounded by zombies What s a pretty boy to do Find a protector and get the hell out of there ASAP, of course However, things don t go quite as expected for Victor Upon arriving at the Honeyhill farm, Victor meets Crunch Crunch is a pleasant surprise Heed t [...]

    12. I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review Thank you so much for letting me review your book Before I start this review let me tell you a bit about how I came across this one As most books do.is one popped up on my radar by a fellow friend Instantly the Theme and Erotic content warning grab my attention But, do you know what seals the deal That cover Yup It s AMAZING But, it s set in 1907 I give a pretty wide girth to Historical or in the case Victorian Era books So onto the TBR list i [...]

    13. I received a review copy of this book via Don t Buy My Love program in exchange for an honest reviewUNG is set in an alternate Victorian era one where there has been a plague that turned humans to zombies In this world, debtors have been rounded up and sent to work camps in order to pay off their debts.Victor isn t a debtor, he s a singer One who made a pass at his patron and has been sent to the Honeyhill work camp as a punishment Victor is immediately intrigued by the frank looks he receives f [...]

    14. This could have been darker I feel like it should have been, with the guard prisoner relationship, Victor shouldnt have found it so easy to fall for Crunch Also, I think the the Winter special is necessary Be sure to read it as well because this feels incomplete without it It should have just been the epilogue instead of released separately.

    15. I can honestly say that than half of the appeal to read this story was because I absolutely love the cover It s one of the best book covers I have ever seen and since I m getting close to having read six hundred books this year, so far, I know what I m talking about The description intrigued me because I like zombie stories and this is the first gay romance I ve read that features them K.A Merikan is a new author, to me, and I enjoy delving into a writing style that I am not familiar with, plus [...]

    16. I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.3.5 stars really almost 4This story had me from the start, then it waned a little for me but by the end I was like wow not bad at all.The story begins with Victor being taken to a prison work camp run by the mob and the only reason he is there is because he made a pass at the wrong man Quickly after Victor arrives at the work camp he catches the eye of the head guard Crunch and Victor is ready to use this to his [...]

    17. You don t have to be a horror devotee or a zombie enthusiast to read Stung Though I admit I am the scary squickier, the better , the zombies really only play a secondary role in this storyline This is not a book that centers about the moaning and ambling undead who want to eat brains this is a story that centers about a man, Victor, who has been wrongfully imprisoned for a mistake he made which ultimately revealed his sexuality to the wrong man, a powerful man who runs a penal colony that produc [...]

    18. I received a review copy of this book via Don t Buy My Love program in exchange for an honest review.This book had a great premise zombies in Edwardian England, with a mob run prison camp and an undercover Good Guy as the cherry on top Who could ask for And just look at that striking cover Unfortunately, the execution of the story was not nearly as good as either the premise or the cover.For one thing, this story could have been set just about anywhere, at any time Readers are given virtually z [...]

    19. This pair of authors are well known for their unusual, macabre or even downright disturbing twists to their stories and this one was no exception The book is set in the world of their Zombie Gentlemen series I haven t read any of the other books and found that I could follow the story quite easily, so it s not necessary to have read any of the other books in the series The story follows Victor He s a singer who, after a serious misjudgment when dealing with a mob boss, finds himself shipped off [...]

    20. A Joyfully Jay review.4.5 starsStung is a standalone book in K.A Merikan s Zombie Gentlemen series I have read a couple of the other stories set in this world and this is definitely my favorite While the story takes place after the zombie plague changes the world, the zombies are actually not a big part of the story They threaten outside the gates, and even horrifyingly inside we later learn, but mostly this is a captive story focusing on the relationship between Victor and Crunch in the camp.I [...]

    21. This book was received free in return for an honest review While I freely admit that zombie books are just not my cup of tea, I was surprised that I enjoyed the story This was probably because the zombie aspect in this particular book in the series didn t dwell on the actual plague and or have constant zombie attacks The story spans approximately one week in time in 1907, 20 years after the emergence of the Plague The setting is England, in a work camp established by the Dahl family to hold thos [...]

    22. 3.75 starsThat was interesting I thought the story was well done The world building pulled me and grossed me out The MC s needed a couple swift kicks to the arse throughout this story but I still managed to like them both Im usually a fan of prison slavery stories and I thought this covered the life very well without being too hardcore For example there system is tucked up but there isn t an over abundance of cruelty or savagery I m a bit indesisve about the end of this book view spoiler On one [...]

    23. Slaves, zombies, bees and tasty honey oh my It was equal parts delicious and creepy but I freaking loved it

    24. 4 StarsA Live Your Life, Buy The Book ReviewFirst up the cover of this book is amazing I would put it up there with some of my favourite covers Ever It is sweet and enticing, and the story was too The world in this book is dystopian London, after the Plague which I am guessing was Zombies not rats I haven t read the Zombie series by Merikan so am not sure on all the world building details, but you don t really need to know this book is billed as being a standalone and it worked as such It tells [...]

    25. In a world plagued by zombies, sometimes the real monsters are human Like most, Victor is completely unprepared for life in a mob run forced labor camp He s well aware that he doesn t possess the stamina or strength to last in this environment and decides his best chance at surviving is to align himself with someone in authority He chooses the prison guard Crunch as his ally Enad with Victor s good looks and fine ways, Crunch quickly singles out Victor and the two begin a relationship.I liked th [...]

    26. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review 3,5 stars rounded up to 4.There was a lot to like about this book, first and foremost the world I liked both the time period turn of the century , the zombies, and most of all the prison camp Honeyhill ran by mobs There was something gritty and real about the way the world was described and I m excited to check out books in this series Another thing I really enjoyed was Victor, one of our MC s Victor seems so sweet and innocent, but [...]

    27. This is set in the Zombie Gentlemen series and Victor is mentioned in the Copper Horse series he s the guy who propositioned Frey, the guy with 5 wives, lol and was sent off to Honeyhill Farm This is a different viewpoint of the Dal family and disturbing to find out how the honey is made that is mentioned many times in the Copper Horse series.The Dals are judge, jury and view spoiler ultimately, executioner hide spoiler when they send debtors or just people who ve pissed them off to Honeyhill Vi [...]

    28. Love the cover.I kept coming to the GR page because of the cover Then I d read historical, steampunk, and zombies and I d run away Just to be lured back a couple weeks later by the cover, and repeat the process.I enjoyed this The historical portion didn t really bother me wasn t to much.The zombies, again, while there, didn t overpower.The steampunk, I didn t even notice really.The story was good I wished for a little of a solid hea, but it s still there.I don t think I d want to eat the honey [...]
