  • Book Description:

    “Celebrity party girl Amanda Feral is back from the dead, and hungrier than ever for a good time. With her zombie gal pal Wendy and vampy gay sidekick Gil, this stone cold fox is dressed to kill, on the prowl, and ready to take a big juicy bite out of Seattle’s supernatural nightlife.

    But what’s a zombie chick to do when her ‘Mommie Dearest’ gets sick? If you’re Amanda Feral, you can either ignore the wicked old witch – or bury the past by visiting Ethel before she kicks it. Amanda’s not thrilled about the idea of crossing three states just to be criticized. But Wendy, who’s always looking for fresh meat, is up for the adventure. And Gil, who just launched his ‘luxury’ resurrection business, needs to disappear because a pissed-off client is out for his blood.

    First, they pack their stiletto pumps and plasma into a skeevy rattrap on wheels that used to be a Winnebago. Then, with a little help from a Korean-ghost hood ornament, a masochist named Fishhook, and a slew of ‘moderately accurate’ psychics, they hit the highway – their way. Of course, they’ll have to navigate past some neo-Nazi skinheads, a horny dust devil, a hunky werewolf cop (who could pass for an underwear model) and an unsightly horde of supermarket shoppers. But for this glamorous gang of ghouls this trip is about to take a dangerous detour that could give road kill a brand new meaning.”

    My Thoughts:

    Two words: freakin hilarious! That about sums it up, but you probably want to know some more. Honestly, Zombies are not one of my favourite supernatural creatures, heck, they’re not even in my top ten, but Mark Henry’s Amanda Feral & Wendy are definitely the exception for me. Politically incorrect, snarky, hilariously offensive,  fashionista’s to the ninth degree, these characters have me clutching sides from laughing so hard while kinda grossing me out at the same time.

    Mark Henry paints characters so colorful that they leap off the page. The situations that they find themselves in are absolutely priceless and keep me flipping the pages to find out what happens next. The title of this book is appropos because travelling with this group would be like being in a night of the living dead but in a great roller coaster that never ends way. Full of thrills, chills and gut-popping laughs.
