As the front desk manager of a hotel on the edge of Zombietown, Pallas is used to dealing with angry centaurs, surly trolls, and zombie housekeepers. The trouble really starts when one of her guests ends up dead. But that's not her only problem.
A cop with an attitude - can he be trusted to be more than just a pain in her ass or does he have a more sinister agenda?
A new Guest Services Manager, out for her job and ready to sacrifice anyone in his way - what does he really want?
The attractive maintenance guy, endangering the promise she made out of necessity to the Goddess Athena - does he know more than he's telling?
A mermaid diva, whose show at the Sparkling Butterfly must go on - or else.
Pallas needs to find the killer, and fast, or she'll lose her job, her home, and the ragtag family she's adopted out of her crew of "critters".
In the course of the investigation Pallas uncovers connections to a nasty Oddities dealer deep in the heart of Zombietown, forcing her to expose a trauma from her past which could threaten her future. With everyone and everything she loves in danger, the promise made to the Goddess Athena may well damn her if she breaks it, but she is bound and determined to save her friends, her home, and everything she's built.
No matter what it takes.

I have to be honest when I first began reading this book I thought it was a little too over the top for me but I figured I should stop being "Judgey Judgerson" and give it a fair shot. I am so glad that I did. It was a really enjoyable read. It has a little bit of everything humor, romance, murder and mystery. Pallas is a tough cookie who won't take crap from anyone. Her back story is sad and makes you wonder if she isn't a pawn in a bigger scheme. The supporting cast is interesting as well and I liked that every possible paranormal/mythical creature made appearances. I enjoyed the different spin on zombies that was presented. Rather then being bitten and immediately tuning into mindless brain eating machines, there is a 15 year delay. The zombies in this story were religious and very superstitious. It had parallels to someone having a terminal disease, trying to continue to live life and make peace with it. As this is part one to an expected trilogy there were a few little carrots dangled for back stories that I will be more than happy to chase. If you're someone who likes to compartmentalize and not allow any food to touch each other on your dinner plate, this may not be the story for you. However, if you are looking for a story that is a great example of urban fantasy pick this one up.
