Zeus Is Undead: This One Has Zombies by Michael G. Munz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Gods returned, it didn't go as well as many would have expected especially for the murdered Zeus who was the victim of a coup which allowed the pantheon to re-enter the lives of humanity. Surprisingly many of the gods themselves came to think this whole messing with the mortal world was too much of a hassle and as is the norm heroes emerged to battle incredible odds and restore the balance. Not long after when things had kinda settled down again the dead began to rise from the grave, the mortuary or wherever and well we all know what a hassle that can be. Tracy (daughter of Zeus) along with Leif (heroes both) see their movie deal die a death and along with former God Athena and former Ninja Templar Ryan Seth Sloude they search for the cause and solution of the zombie plague. Sounds simple except the gods are busy dealing with celestial beings who are intent on searching the Earth for well something and they may just have the god killer that was created for Zeus to handle the Titans, tricky and diplomacy was never a strong suit for the Gods.
Zeus Is Undead: This One Has Zombies is an excellent follow up to the first novel bringing back our favourite humans, half humans and gods in an epic quest to save humanity and defuse the threat of these beings from somewhere else one of which bumped "parts" with Zeus long long ago.
The story flows with pace and never lets up with the humour both in situations which call for the direct injection of a laugh and those that on the surface do not but hey read the title you are not getting an over dramatic dark toned tome here. Seriously when the zombies stop craving brains and now stumble around proclaiming "grains" and carrying a pretzel or having drunk beer makes you number one snack food you are in for laughs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the novel, maybe should have reread the first as it took a few chapters to get back up to speed but it was a blast, over the top fun with gods doing godly things and making things worse and humans trying their best and ending up in situations far worse than before.
