Waiting on Wednesday (6) Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

image WoW is a weekly blog-hop hosted by Breaking the Spine that features books we are eagerly awaiting!
I absolutely cannot wait to read Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel.  Read the description below and you’ll understand why. 
I first heard of this from The Bookish Brunette during Zombie Craze 2011 via guest post by Lia Habel (see it here).  I fell in love with the post and semi-cyber-stalked Habel for a few days, finding her on Goodreads and letting her know how freaking excited I am about her book.
And now, I anxiously patiently wait for October 18, 2011, for it to release.
Ms. Habel, can I have an ARC, please???
What are you waiting for?
Love can never die.
Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead—or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie? 
The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria—a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune, and now plans to marry her niece off for money. For Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses. 
But fate is just getting started with Nora. Catapulted from her world of drawing-room civility, she’s suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting “The Laz,” a fatal virus that raises the dead—and hell along with them. Hardly ideal circumstances. Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble . . . and dead. But as is the case with the rest of his special undead unit, luck and modern science have enabled Bram to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts. And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to tenderness, there’s no turning back. Eventually, they know, the disease will win, separating the star-crossed lovers forever. But until then, beating or not, their hearts will have what they desire.
In Dearly, Departed, steampunk meets romance meets walking-dead thriller, spawning a madly imaginative novel of rip-roaring adventure, spine-tingling suspense, and macabre comedy that forever redefines the concept of undying love.
