    I will preface this review with the fact that I am not a fan of zombie books. I'm trying to broaden my horizons and delve into this genre that seems to be gaining popularity. That said, I went into this book skeptical and came out a fan. This story was as much about discovery and coming of age, as it was about the emotions associated with the cut of that first love.

I'm trying to broaden my horizons and delve into this genre that seems to be gaining popularity. That said, I went into this book skeptical and came out a fan. This story was as much about discovery and coming of age, as it was about the emotions associated with the cut of that first love. We all experienced the butterflies in the tummy and anxiety that came with that first crush. A.R. Von does an exceptional job of conveying this, while capturing what it is to feel different than everyone else, and then to find that someone who accepts you, quirks and all. I’m an emotional reader and tend to seek a deep connection to the characters I read. This book is reminiscent of that time in life when your heart is open to the possibilities and promise of the future. It took me back to that awkward time in young adulthood when you feel like every decision that you make is life or death. And Pete, well he gets my Mr. Cutie Cute award.  On a more serious note, the thing I found particularly strong about A. R. Von’s writing was her ability to elicit emotion from a reader. This is a rare gift in a beginning writer. Wunder is such a strong heroine, despite the many obstacles she’s had to overcome. She commands respect, but is completely comfortable with submitting to Pete. I am a champion of strong literary heroines, so this was a major draw for me. And the ending...I really wasn't expecting that! I laughed. I cried. I pouted when I reached the end, because I wanted more! *clutching my Kindle and whimpering* Please, A.R. I want more. Please, can I have more Wunder? Wunder is an excellent, 5 star treat for paranormal, romance and zombie lovers alike!

    What I thought was going to be a short story about zombies, with all the implications that word gives, turns into a quick read of discovery for a young woman. A lovely story that starts off with what you believe is a tragedy and turns into a hope for tomorrow, and there is no doubt in my mind that will. Good job A.R. Von.

This is a cleverly crafted introduction to Wunder and the world she lives in, and is an 18+ short as the erotic encounter with the man she has crushed on for a while is graphic and quite steamy. Imaginative use of food similes provides a giggle:that simple inclusion gives readers a clear description of the physical actions and reactions. As a short, this is a tease, but provides an engaging glimpse into a character that is cleverly snarky and fun to read about. I can only hope that the further planned installments will continue on this path. I purchased an eBook copy for my own library, I should disclose that I know and work with the author as part of a review team. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

She is strong, confident, and pretty, and she concealing a secret—she’s part zombie. The one thing she is missing in her life is Pete, the hottie she’s been lusting over for months. To Wunder’s surprise, Pete has been harboring similar feelings towards her too. The chemistry between Wunder and Pete ignites instantly. Von masterfully and realistically portrays Wunder and Pete’s overwhelming feelings of love and their nervousness at being vulnerable with each other. This combination creates an endearing couple that you can’t help but cheer for. Their one intimate scene is passionate, intense, and emotionally satisfying. For a short story, Wunder has it all—an original plot, entertaining characters, steamy sex, and a stunning cliffhanger—making this story an entertaining beginning to a promising new serial. I am looking forward to many future encounters with Wunder and Pete! I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review.

    Fast paced and witty I found myself really enjoying this. I know what you're thinking "Zombie Erotica? Um..what?" First off, stop that. It's not Romero's zombies banging. Wunder is a special child born in the time of a zombie infestation. Second, pick it up and read it. It's a quick, enjoyable read that packs a tight punch of conflict, sex and fun characters all together. I'm looking forward to reading more of Wunder's adventures.

    I was really intrigued to read this and when I started, I found myself quickly immersed in a love story with a tragic background. I love the story of Wunder and hope that the author will give us more of her back story and her budding romance. I am also intrigued to find out what happens with the zombie situation in general. Good job! Want more!

I’m different from everyone else and never wanted to be with anyone before now.’ I realize he felt the same way I did. I was always afraid, and never felt any motivation to go after a guy before. I know I need to say something about this, but I couldn’t find any words, so I did the next best thing, and kissed him. He says everything I feel, that longing I’ve had too, for what feels like forever. I needed this.”

    I have only read a handful of paranormal books, and as well as being an introduction to the genre, this book is easily a keeper for those who are more in touch with their inner zombie.

When I realised I was halfway through, I'll admit, I was a bit disappointed, as I was just getting settled into the book, and wasn't ready to leave Wunder behind. However in the end this didn't cost any stars because (a) the story left me satisfied and conversely (b) wanting more. I'm waiting impatiently for the next installment now! thank you A. R. Von, I never thought Zombies could be interesting!

    “Wunder” is the beginning of a multi-short-story series about a woman named after the title itself. It’s an erotic “zombified” treat. As it starts off, we get an understanding of the dangerous world Wunder resides in, a world full of ravenous zombies, and if you’re not on your guard, you may find yourself on their “plate,” for the virus has spawned out of control, turning many into what we all know as “the living dead.” We get a glimpse about Wunder’s parents (standing together in battle against “Wunder” is the beginning of a multi-short-story series about a woman named after the title itself.

However, the best mystery of the tale is the legacy of Wunder’s Mother. A ferocious fighter, yet she had disappeared shortly after Wunder was born. Alive or dead, or worse yet, made into a Zombie, Wunder does not know, but she is determined to find out, and Pete holds the answer. I’m interested to see where aspiring author A.R. Von is going to take this.

I may have to start paying attention to all that now.

Only complaint....I would have liked a little more back story on Wunder before the heat starts to rise.

The ending is different from any zombie fiction I've ever come across, which leaves some intrigue to see how the author continues the series.

    Ok, so this is an awesome new take on the always popular zombie genre. Sometimes you need to step away from the walker horror and see what a zombie apocalypse would would be like 25 years after the initial infection. Add in some spicy sex, great writing flow, and you have a great start to a fresh unique serial series. Move over all you over done billionaire serials-- Wunder is about to kick you all outta there :-) finally!! Something new and fresh!

    I was eager to give this one a try when the book was introduced to me on a blog tour and so I was thrilled when I won my own copy. The idea of a girl that is part zombie living in a world occupied by humans and zombies sounded great. The book is a short serial installment of about twenty pages. It opens with a prologue scene about Wunder's birth and then it jumps forward several years to the present when Wunder is fighting zombies with her father.

It opens with a prologue scene about Wunder's birth and then it jumps forward several years to the present when Wunder is fighting zombies with her father. She is attracted to Pete and for her birthday decides to do something about her attraction. In the process, she learns something that changes everything and that's when this portion of the story ends abruptly ready for the next serial installment. I thought the premise good and the plot clipped along, but I do wish the backstory, worldbuilding, and characters would have been teased out more so I could have been even more vested in the story. My curious mind wanted to know more of the 'how's and 'why's not just the 'what's, 'where's and 'when's. The story jumped into a place in Wunder's time line in such a way that I felt like I was entering things in the middle instead of the beginning. The story was engaging so I do want to know what happens next for Wunder, her dad, and Pete in their world where zombies are a part of their past and present culture. Even in the limited amount of pages offered there was a firecracker hot and explosive scene between Pete and Wunder that left me a little breathless and bothered. And for those squeamish types like myself who don't like their zombies too juicy and menacing, this is a safe read. Those who enjoy short stories with a paranormal element and a spice romantic encounter should give this serial a try.

    Wunder is a wonder to her father. Her mother was bitten shortly before her birth by one of the zombies running rampant in the land; therefore Wunder is one quarter zombie. Luckily for her, she suffers none of the harsh side effects that go with being a zombie. Fast forward from Wunder’s birth to her blossoming as a woman in love with a guy named Pete. And that’s mostly what this book is about. Wunder and Pete connecting, hence the paranormal romance aspect. Wunder is only 16 pages. As the first in Wunder is a wonder to her father.

And that’s mostly what this book is about. Wunder and Pete connecting, hence the paranormal romance aspect. Wunder is only 16 pages. As the first in a series, I have to hope the other books are longer, because this is barely long enough to get your feet wet. There are problems with this book, I won’t lie. It would have benefited from better editing, eliminating those pesky tense changes. There is just not much meat to the story, either, but how much can you expect to see in 16 pages? That being said, I saw the twist coming from the beginning. And I have to say the story involves a pet peeve of mine – two innocents, having sex for the first time, yet they seem to know exactly what to do, and there’s no pain, no blood, no mess of any kind. So why do I give it three stars? Because deep down it’s cute and sweet, and has potential. I just think it should have been fleshed out before being released. There is no real story development, and little character. I’m looking forward to seeing more of what the author can do, if she’d allow herself time and room to do it in. It’s a short, sweet read with an interesting twist on zombies, but it’s a little lacking too. But it’s also a nice first effort, Miss Von.

    Wunder is described as a an erotic treat, and what a treat it is! First, I'd like to say that I think AR Von is a brave woman. To make her debut work a short story takes guts and here's why I think so. In order to make a short story truly engaging, the writer has to tell a story with a limited number of words while working to convey the same sense of satisfaction in her readers that they could get from a novella or novel.

I feel she does this more successfully than many other shorts I've read and this is an achievement in and of itself. Wunder was pacy and quick, a little nibble that was just what I was looking for after a reading slump. Reading through Wunder's POV we get a voice that young, real, and a bit sarcastic in a way that makes her relatable. While I am not usually one for zombies, I can say that aspect of it didn't bother me in this story; mainly because of the way it's weaved in with the other elements present. It was just enough to make the world this book is set in realistic and believable. I found Pete, the hero, especially endearing and cute. He had a way of saying things that could curl a girl's toes. The love scene between him and Wunder was hot without being over the top...just the way I like my erotic reads. In the end, so many questions are left unanswered, but I know there's more to come for Wunder and I for one can't wait to find out how things turn out after that shocking twist at the end. Seriously, didn't see it coming.

    Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This one is a hard one for me to rate. It was interesting, however there seems to be a whole lot of world building needed and due to, of course, the length of the short it's missing. Some things just bug the scientist in me like how the percentage of zombie in a person is determined. I thought that the opening prologue was an interesting setting and it really seemed like it was being told through Wunder's rose-tinted glas Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I thought that the opening prologue was an interesting setting and it really seemed like it was being told through Wunder's rose-tinted glasses. She obviously thinks her mom and dad hung the moon which is only right. I liked that way of opening the read. I haven't much opinions on the characters so far and the situation really just got started so I'm reserving judgement as of yet. The sex scene raised a few questions for me and it seemed like the two were a little overconfident for their experience level but it was good. I'd like to read more so that I can really get a read on what is happening.

    Different and refreshing! This book was definitely different in a good way. Though the book is short, and is only part of a series, it can keep you entertained. Wunder is a short tale of a girl that is part zombie who is drawn into a delicious young man, peter, whom is also part zombie. The story spins out from there. It's a different twist on zombie tales and that is always refreshing. The characters are developed well and the story line isn't hard to follow at all.

For a new author I'm giving four stars because I think she can grow and become the next big thing with a positive attitude and hard work. Keep it up. I'm happy that I got a chance to read this book. I would have loved more details, however I have a feeling the newer parts that are to come will get better with each book.
