Zombies vs Unicorns

Zombies vs Unicorns
by Justine Larbalestier (Team Zombie)
& Holly Black (Team Unicorn)

Which Team Are You On!

How many times have you asked yourself 'which is the better creature, Zombies or Unicorns?' Now you can wonder no longer as this anthology puts that question to rest, or slays it with a sharp pointy object depending on your view point. Then again it may just dig up a whole pile of gross human remains which only goes to spark this debate once again.

Zombies, although only born in more recent times, have a wide reaching appeal. But not all zombies are slow mindless creatures, although some certainly are, as some are calculating and resourceful who are able to blend in to the world around them for the most part, that is if they can control their desire for that culinary delicacy that is human brains.

Unicorns have always existed either as symbols of purity and hope or as vicious blood thirsty killers. But even while ripping your heart out these unicorns are still able to fart rainbows and sparkle with magic. Their impossible existence is always questioned but their ability to charm has never failed, well not on anyone still living.

Zombies Vs Unicorns answers the age old question 'would you rather be killed by a Unicorn or loved by a Zombie?' As surprisingly it is the Zombie stories that are more to do with love and the Unicorn stories that are more to do with death. Even though I have long been an admirer of Unicorns with their intriguing nature and timelessness I must admit that Zombies are very compelling and haunting. Decide for yourself which creature reins supreme and read this book.
