What do you get when you combine Cinderella and zombies?  ELLA, THE SLAYER.  In this first installment of the exciting “Serenity House” Series, author A.W. Exley adds an Edwardian twist to the classic Cinderella tale.

During the flu pandemic of 1918, millions died within a few short months. Everyone did what they could to nurse the ill and bury the dead.  But, they didn’t stay dead. And it wasn’t the flu.

I dream of a time when there was only one kind of death.

Mother died when I was ten years old. We buried her and packed away her clothing. Father and I mourned the empty space in our souls and at our table. Back then death only had one meaning: your life snuffed out, never to rekindle.

The days when people stayed dead were so much easier.

As if long days of cleaning and caring for a difficult set of “step-relations” wasn’t enough, Ella now adds “zombie slayer” to her list of chores. All in a day’s work.

It’s not all bad. Sometimes patrolling for zombies can lead to true love. Just ask the Duke of Leithfield, Seth deMage.  Sent to control the plague of vermin in Somerset, he finds help in a katana-wielding scullery maid.

Award-winning narrator Gabrielle de Cuir takes you on a highly entertaining and twisted journey into a fairy tale you only thought you knew.
