I did, in fact, receive this book as a gift from Quirk Publishing. They saw my review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and asked if I wanted to review this one.
I believe my exact words were "Heck yes!"
So now you know I'm potentially biased. But the bias extends only to giving the review its own post. I believe I would have loved this book anyway.

Okay, I'll admit it, I was skeptical. I mean I loved PP&Z, but part of that was the novelty, and part of it was that zombies are so entertaining in and of themselves. I had doubts that Quirk could pull the idea off twice.
I was wrong. Ho boy, was I wrong.
This time, Quirk didn't just throw in monsters, they constructed an entire sub-plot around them. And these aren't just random dead people showing up to eat humans, these sea monsters are smart, angry, and organized.
My favorite part is when the girls are in Sub Station Beta (an underwater London) and the sea creatures organize an attack to break the dome. So. Cool.
