Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As you can tell from the title, this is a very silly book. Zombies run the world, raise humans for meat, and are aided by supernaturals such as fairies. Adding to the craziness, they are apparently controlled by albinos in their heads. Buck is a zombie unhappy with his life, and when he meets Fairy_26, he learns of a plot to change the world order. There are some hilarious set pieces here, such as the zombie grocery store, and the marriage counseling between Buck and his wife. Unfortunately the fever dream of weirdness doesn't coalesce into a comprehensible plot. VERDICT Decent writing and wacky humor can't save this middle volume of a series (following 2012's Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies) from its own excesses.
