Club Zombie is a safe haven for people like Cassidy Frost. Zombies suck—but they’re not after brains! Forget mindless rotting corpses shuffling along. These zombies are young, hot, and looking for their mates.
Cassidy, who wrote everyone else’s happily ever after, had all but lost hope he’d ever find his own. Every night he sucked until his jaw hurt, praying for his other half more out of habit than faith his mate was out there. He didn’t dare hope fate would drop his mate into his lap.
Erick McGrath stumbled and landed in the arms of a beautiful angel. Though he must be dreaming, because he learned how cruel and short life could be when he lost his brother. Despite his parents’ toxic attitude, Erick starts to accept his nonbinary gender identity. Going to Club Zombie’s Drag Night is his first attempt at embracing his new grasp at freedom.
But Cassidy and Erick will have to take risks to have what they desire.
(Zombies Coming is part of the Club Zombie series but can be read as a standalone for a perfectly happy and satisfying ending.)
This is the third instalment of the series about Club Zombie, a refuse for zombies. First, forget everything you thought you knew about zombies. Forget rotting corpses falling apart and think instead of beautiful men who (mostly) hold it together. Forget brains and drag your mind lower. And if any of them move slowly it’s not in a physical manner.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the books, but so far this is my favourite. The characters are so adorable and damaged in their own ways, and so real and relatable. I just wanted to put my arms around both MC’s and hug them tight.
Whilst being unique in many ways, the story deals with some age-old themes, such as acceptance – of yourself and others – loneliness and familial relationships.
There are some classic scenes such as when Erick was struggling with his pigtails, and when Cassidy led him astray with the road sign. There are many more little moments scattered through the book that make you smile or think.
This book is very much part of a series, and although it can be read as a standalone, I’d recommend it’s read in order with the series as things are more clearly explained in the previous books. It will also help you understand Storm, who isn’t really the asshole he seems.
Occasionally, the writing is a little naïve, and there are parts that could be developed more, but on the whole it’s a smoothly written book with an engaging story. I particularly like the way characters are developed and there is a surprising amount of emotional depth. Don’t let the frivolous titles fool you because the books are anything but trite and cliché. There’s weight and subtlety here as well as humour.
