Zombies Vs. Unicorns by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier

Zombies Vs. Unicorns edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier 
Released: September 21st 2010
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Page Amount: 415, US Hardcover Edition

"It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? In this anthology, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier (unicorn and zombie, respectively), strong arguments are made for both sides in the form of short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths—for good and evil—of unicorns and half show the good (and really, really bad-ass) side of zombies. Contributors include many bestselling teen authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?"

My Thoughts:
This amazing anthology filled with zombies and unicorns stories. Is to battle the ending question Zombies or Unicorns, which is better? After reading this I am totally Team Unicorn!! With adding this I did enjoy the stories on both of the creatures. Anyone loving zombies or unicorns should definitely add this book to your collection. There's action, and romance. Plus killer unicorns, some brain eating zombies... what more could you want? I also love the editing thoughts from Holly and Justine before each story.

If you haven't yet go out and get this book!! I love the cover!! 
5/5 stars!! 

Hope you enjoyed my review, Happy Reading, Ashley

*Do not continue reading the following blurb or review for it may contain spoilers. Unless you've read Sweep Volumes 1-3*

"The fourth Sweep collection! Morgan Rowlands had thought her foes were defeated, but demons from the past still haunt her and her beloved, Hunter. Their magick is strong, but the darkness that torments them threatens to overwhelm even their love. Yet there is another, whose magick could save, or could destroy. And caught in the middle of the darkness and light, Morgan realizes that only together can they face the danger that threatens to destroy not just her soul mate, but everything and everyone she loves. For the dark wave is coming . . . and it is unstoppable."-Information from

My Thoughts:
Continuing on with the story line from the previous volumes in the series. Hunter, Morgan and Alisa each go through challenges.  They come together to fight the dark wave. Hunter finds somethings out about the council and makes a decision about his future. Morgan faces the choice of being good or crossing over to the evil side. I truly love this series. The characters have come along way. 

You seriously need to get out this series. I don't think it gets the spotlight it deserves. 

5/5 stars!!!! Hope you enjoyed my review, Happy Reading, Ashley
