Review by: KaraSkinner on Feb. 18, 2018 :
To be honest, I automatically started to dislike this book because “Dreams” is spelled with a Z. And while it was okay, it was not as good as it could have been.

Wunder has been dreaming about a man for as long as she can remember, always the same man. The dreams leave her aroused to no end at night. Unfortunately, this man doesn’t exist in her life, at least not yet. But her love life is nonexistent and thanks to her being half zombie, that’s not going to change any time soon.

Little does she know that her dream man exists and his name is Pete. Not only does he exist, but he’s been dreaming about her as well. Pete is also half zombie and lives in the next town over with his uncle. When he moves to Wunder’s town to recover from a huge zombie attack, will they finally get to meet in real life?

You can get this book for free on Smashwords.

I have such mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, it’s a cool story with some damn good world-building. The explanation behind a half zombie, half human is actually logical, or as logical as anything to do with zombies is. This also sets up a lot of potential plotlines for the other books in the series, all of them sounding interesting. And the Resilient Infected Police, or RIP, have a fantastic name.

Also, I can always appreciate a bad-ass girl who knows how to kick some ass, zombie or otherwise.

But learn to fricking edit.

Aside from the grammatical and punctuational atrocities that made my eyes widen in horror while I was reading this, there are so many strange things in this story that aren’t even rookie mistakes. This story is as loose as your post Taco Bell shit.

Never mind the crazy summaries and excessive telling instead of showing. I’ve seen that so many times by now, I’m almost immune to that. What I haven’t seen is a fucking tree fetish.

Yes, ladies and gents, you read that right. Either Wunder loves trees a little too much, or the author does. Why else would Wunder interrupt her retelling of a very hot and kinky sex dream to describe at length the tree she’s tied to, when she first saw it, and how beautiful she thinks it is.

Damn, Wunder, get back to how your sexy dream man is dominating you. I don’t have patience for this arousal-killing nature shit.

Also, A. R. Von got so distracted with setting the stage for future plot lines that she totally forgot to dazzle the reader with the current plot. There was an awful lot of talk about how Pete’s town attracts zombies a lot more than normal towns do, and about the life test they have to take every month to make sure the people aren’t dead, although I feel like the rotting flesh would give it away. (Also how does a person keep their zombie side secret when being blood tested monthly for proof of life? Asking for a friend).

But the current plot of restless RIP agents going to save a town from a hoard of zombies while having kinky dreams is sadly neglected. The exchange between Wunder and her friend feels more like a free write than a final draft and the epic battle is slow-paced and anti-climactic.

Then at the end, Pete asks his uncle about Wunder, and Pete is able to tell him all about Wunder’s famous reputation of being an all-around badass, which brings up the question: how does Pete, who lives with his uncle and works with his uncle in the RIP not know even a little bit about Wunder’s existence when his uncle is able to recognize her on sight and gush about how awesome she is?

But I do like Pete and Wunder. Wunder is a bad-ass and Pete is sexy as hell. The chemistry between them is great. While there’s only a promise of a love connection in this book, I do believe they have a very juicy love story ahead of them.

This book is my first Zombie book ever!!, A great well written smooth paced read, introducing her main characters Wunder and Pete. I enjoyed it very much that I'm on to book #1. Its sexually steamy yet not over the top. And they kick Zombie butt. With secrets of their own and an unevitable attraction, I just can't wait what will become of these two.

Beautifully written, exciting characters and an awesome story plot!

Dreamz, .5 Wunder Series by A.R. Von
5 stars

This is a short prequel that does exactly what it should. This was an intriguing lead in to the series, with just enough of an introduction to what the two main characters Wunder and Pete are like. I think this is going to be a different take on zombies, I like it. I hope that the chemistry between Wunder and Pete that is hinted to is as explosive as is hinted it will be. I was pleasantly surprised at how fast I was sucked in to this story, and can't wait to read the rest.

I'm not one to write reviews, but I felt the need for this short. I love the way details were given & that I could picture it in my mind. I love the quick insight into Wunder's relationship with her dad & Pete's with his uncle. This short definitely grabbed my interest & I can't wait to read the rest of the series :)

Review by: Wolf Paw Publications on June 17, 2013 :
This story takes place before Wunder. This one focuses more on the zombie infestation and how Wunder trains with her teams to eliminate the infected.
It definitely gives you a bit more insite on Wunder, and you learn things about her that you didn't get a chance to in book one. Here is where Wunder and Pete first meet.. Even if they don't officially meet until book one.
One nice change about this prequel is you not only get into Wunder's head.. but you get a taste of Pete's as well.
I wonder if book two if the reason Wunder and Pete were sharing dreams before they met will be explained, after all I'm sure both are just as curious about it as any one that reads this book will be.
As this is a short I really can't speak anymore on it without giving anything away. I do look forward to book two in the series though.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws

Review by: Secret Narrative on June 17, 2013 :
This series of Wunder books is billed as `A Semi-Zombie Erotic Treat' and AR Von certainly delivers a treat for all your senses, from the perfectly packaged cover, first word to last; realistic dialogue and characterisation make this story an entertaining, pacey read. Hooked from the first line, I decided to abandon everything else and indulge a read-fest. The relationship between Wunder and her father is beautifully written and touching, and the perfect thread of humanity stitched by Von will wind its way into your senses. Intense eroticism floods the sexy, hot dream sequences, in scenes that will haunt your own dreams. Recommended.
