Summary

The flu pandemic of 1918 took millions of souls within a few short weeks. Except it wasn't flu, and death gave them back.
Seventeen-year-old Ella copes the best she can by caring for her war-injured father, scrubbing the floors, and slaying the undead that attack the locals. Like rats, these vermin spread pestilence with every bite. Ella's world collides with another when she nearly decapitates a handsome stranger - one who is very much alive.
Seth deMage, the new Duke of Leithfield, has returned to his ancestral home with a mission from the War Office: control the plague of vermin in rural Somerset. He needs help; he just didn't expect to find it in a katana-wielding scullery maid.
Working alongside Seth blurs the line between their positions, and Ella glimpses a future she never dreamed was possible. But in overstepping society's boundaries, Ella could lose everything - her home, her head, and her heart.

Could have been so much better

I loved the premise of this - Cinderella with zombies! But to be honest, I feel like with such a fun idea so much more could have been done with the story. It couldn't quite decide whether it wanted to be serious or silly, and in doing so failed at both. The writing style was also not great and at times a bit cringeworthy, especially the romantic scenes.
