It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? In this anthology, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier (unicorn and zombie, respectively), strong arguments are made for both sides in the form of short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths - for good and evil - of unicorns and half show the good (and really, really bad-ass) side of zombies. Contributors include many best-selling teen authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?

    " A great collection. some pretty awesome zombie stories, some pretty awesome unicorn stories. lots of cool authors (cassandra clare, scott westerfield to name 2). "

    " I generally hate short stories, but these were quite fun. My problem with short stories is generally that I feel they end too suddenly. I want to read more and it is too jarring a transition to the next story. And a few of these stories definitely did have endings that were just too abrupt for my liking - "the care and feeding of your baby killer unicorn" is one example, although there were a few others. Some of the stories were definitely stronger in my opinion than others. I wasn't crazy about "The higher justice" or "Purity test", but some of my favorites were "Bougainvillea" (a surprise since I really didn't like "The forest of hands and teeth"), "The children of the revolution" and "The third virgin". Overall, I'm pretty sure I'm on team zombie. "

    " NYMBC - This is our October book. You have to read it so I can have someone to talk with about the wacky stories. It is definitely different but really funny in some spots! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 12/2/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. The zombie stories could have been more zombie less love story but they still were enjoyable. The unicorn stories all were differant and fresh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Brawley | 11/2/2013

    " Usually in a collection of short stories there are some that are good, some that are fine, and others that should have been excluded. These short stories were all absolutely fantastic! I would recommend this book to anyone, not just lovers of zombies or unicorns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Topaz Goold | 10/25/2013

    " amazing. yet, after reading the whole book i still can't decide which side i'm on. Garth Nix had the best story in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 6/13/2013

    " This book was just ok. If not for the zombies I don't think I would have liked it very much. There are some weird storys thad I just didn't care for. Just read the zombie ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 4/24/2013

    " So sorry, Holly Black, but Zombies win. Although Meg Cabot wrote an AWESOME unicorn story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Berry | 4/23/2013

    " A wonderful series of short stories. Has something for everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lily | 12/17/2012

    " I really liked this book. All the stories were fast passed and generally enjoyable. Although I am a member of team unicorn I must admit that the stories about zombies in this book were much more intresting than those about Unicorns "

    " This book was pretty good, although i didnt think it was anything noteworthy. Some of the short stories were a little slow, which is why it took me a really long time to finish this book. I would only reccomend it to people who really enjoy fatasy writing, and/or short stories. "

    " With all those great authors, I thought this book would be awesome. In reality, it was extremely disappointing and not all that funny or interesting. Too bad... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelby | 1/9/2012

    " Some of the stories were awesome, but others were just...eh. "

    " yuck...guess since I'm not a zombie fan, I shouldn't be surprised but this was not one of my keepers.....cute idea but just not for me... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guenevere | 5/10/2011

    " I am undecided! I can't decide if Team Zombie is awesome despite the ick and the brain-eating, or if Team Unicorn is awesome despite the weird horse that is just oh-so-pretty and has a horn thing... both teams have uplifting stories, and both have depressing ones.

    Really great book. "

    " I want it to be known Zombies RULE. "
