Edward Grey is a medical student by day, necromancer by night. He lives alone with the first zombie he ever raised, his childhood cat, Boo. Edward’s life is simple: studying medicine, training his necromantic powers with his mentor, Mariel, and having weekly dinners with his parents. When he finds a very attractive corpse in a park and brings it home to reanimate, he creates a sassy, free-willed zombie who believes Edward is the one who murdered him.

With no memory of his former life, Edward names the zombie Kit and tries to win his trust. Kit slowly adjusts to his new un-life with Edward’s help, though he’s still suspicious of Edward’s role in his death and is convinced that Edward is hiding his former identity. Edward is very attracted to Kit, but understands why Kit doesn’t trust him. As they become closer to one another, Kit turns to Edward for comfort and love. The fragile trust they’ve built together will be tested when Kit unexpectedly regains his memory and seeks revenge on his murderers.









Review

My Zombie Boyfriend by T. Strange has the story of Edward a medical student/ necromancer. He is an odd little character. He has an animated cat, and his first zombie in his house with him. He trains with his mentor, and basically just lives life like normal. Well normal as one can get and have a zombie in you house. Kinda average. Nothing really special.
Then he finds Kit. He animates him and gets way more than just a zombie for a friend.
Kit cannot remember who he is, or how he died. He wants to learn it all, but some of Edward's answers just do not make sense.
This story disturbed me some. Zombie sex, that I just could not wrap my mind around. I get Kit is not the normal zombie, but still he is a zombie, and well dead. Get where my mind went with that? I say bravo to T. Strange for making a story that really brought out a lot emotions in me. Probably not the ones she wanted but still I have strong feelings about this story. It is well told and I really felt the characters pains and happiness. If you can over look a few things, suspend some belief, and think outside the box of romance, this is the story to pick up. Very imaginatively done.
