Book Description

Feb. 24 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Road Trip is a fantastic read and you will not be disappointed. Feb. 24 2009
By Rachel P. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The fearsome threesome is back in Road Trip of the Living Dead. When Amanda gets a letter stating that her mother is dying, her first instinct is to pitch the letter and forget about it. After all, what did her mother ever do for her? Wendy and Gil appeal to the softer side of Amanda's conscience. When things go wrong with a client in Gil's new resurrection business, off they go to the middle of nowhere to pay one last visit to the woman who gave birth to Amanda. Along the way, they encounter some unusual characters. And of course, they also manage to encounter more trouble. Will Amanda be able to keep from bashing in her mother's head with a bedpan? Will she be able to retain her youthful good looks while in the middle of danger?

I have to admit, I had bought Happy Hour of the Damned about two days before meeting Mark Henry at RT last year. It was nowhere near the top of my reading list, but when I came home, I sat down and started to read it. As I read the first chapter, I was not sure I wanted to keep reading the book, but by the time I finished it, I was glad I did. I knew I could not wait until he finished the next book. To find out that it would not come out until the following year was pure torture. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I got my hands on a copy for review. I loved it! Road Trip of the Living Dead is definitely worth 5 tombstones.

Amanda Feral is not your typical zombie and if it were not for her eating habits, you would never guess that she was anything but a diva. Road Trip is very snarky and, at times, very funny. Mr. Henry uses footnotes throughout the book as well as playlists and various other little unexpected surprises. By the time you finish the book, there is almost no way that you can dislike Amanda, Wendy and Gil, even if they do seem shallow and selfish at times. I do caution the faint of heart to read this a little bit at a time, as reading about zombies does tend to be a little...gross at times. Pick up Mark Henry and give his series a try. Road Trip is a fantastic read and you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Glam in the Savage Suburbs Feb. 24 2009
By Alana Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is no club opening. Zombie Amanda Feral, gal pal Wendy, and vamp cohort Gil are on the road, making a mad dash away from the newly-vamped gangster who is out to end Gil's unlife. Facing such savage threats as werewolf thugs, vengeance seeking girls with guns, overly-polite cultists, and K-Mart shopping, the gang makes their way to the deathbed of Amanda's mother. Amanda's not interested in closure, but she wouldn't mind making sure her Mommy Dearest is ushered off into the next world permanently. Besides, what better way to let a gangster cool his heels than flee town? But of course, things are never that simple, and we lucky readers get to delve not only into Amanda's past (showing some depth beneath that shallow exterior), but get taken along for the chaos of the road trip of an after-lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is totally sick in the best way possible - laugh out loud funny urban fantasy May 31 2009
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Plot Summary: The notoriously hip zombie, Amanda Feral, was part of a disastrous vampire-raising with her friends Gil and Wendy. The newly risen vamp wants revenge, so this undead trio must hit the road post haste in a P.O.S. Winnebago. Since Amanda's mother is on her deathbed in the middle of the country, they have the perfect excuse for a road trip, no-never-mind that Amanda hates the old biddy and could care less about a bedside farewell. Along the way, they encounter skinheads, werewolves, Wal-Marts (gasp), and weirdness at every turn.

I just can't get over some of the things I read in this book. It was raunchy, saucy, and so funny that I couldn't keep reading because my whole body was shaking with laughter. Henry is completely fearless with a sick sense of humor to boot, and he writes about the kinds of things that polite people are happy to leave unsaid. If you're the sort of person who snorts at good bathroom humor (my hand is raised), then you'll probably howl at several scenes here. If you cannot abide by coarse, lewd, or filthy jokes, pass this one by, because at some point this book would offend your delicate sensibilities like a juicy fart in an elevator.

Hanging out with Amanda and her chums is like entering the glittering, superficial world of professional party girls, and yet amazingly, I did not hate their guts. I quickly got a sense that their flash on the outside was just a coat of makeup, and when I scraped it away, I found that Amanda, Gil, and Wendy have a friendship in the truest sense. They are so full of themselves, so fabulous darling, that when they get into trouble it's like watching Paris Hilton try to do emergency brain surgery. It's comical in the extreme.

Since this is my first Mark Henry novel, I assumed that the heroine was a vampire based on the title. I am so glad that she's not, because casting Amanda as a zombie is unique, disgusting, and refreshing all at the same time. I don't get to read many stories about zombies, which is too bad, because they can make me cringe in ways that make vampires seem boring. Several times I tried to eat while reading this book, and I found my food becoming less appetizing with each page until I had to abandon my plate. It was so deliciously disgusting at times, and I loved it.

This is the second book to feature Amanda and gang, so if you want to read these in order, start with "Happy Hour of the Damned." Truthfully, I had no problem jumping into this book without reading the preceding one. Reader's choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars zany bawdy urban horror thriller March 8 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In Seattle nightlife lover Amanda Feral wishes American had more of a fashions sense especially those people she dines on when she eats their brains; though if they understood fashion, she might not use them as dessert. The zombie fashion hound learns her abusive mother Ethel is dying so she decides to pay her respects to the wicked witch of the northwest. She persuades her friend zombie Wendy Miller to go with her to Rapid City, South Dakota, home of the fashion-challenged and mommy meanest.

The two zombiettes decide to stay in town for one more night before the trek to mommy meanest. However, their friend gay vampire Gil angers a strip club owner, making it imperative he leave town immediately. The trio flees as werewolves give chase while Amanda's pickups seem to lose their heads, but their biggest fear is the shopping horde at Kmart.

This is a wild zany bawdy urban horror thriller (see Happy Hour of the Damned) starring no heroes. The story line is fast-paced with plenty of graphic blood, guts, and sh*t letting. The road warriors are a crude but fun bunch while the tale needs to carry two warnings: don't eat while reading this novel and cover your genitals with armor at all times. Sort of placing Divine of Pink Flamingos fame in a George Romero movie as Mark Henry is over the Rocky Mountains with this wild ROAD TRIP OF THE LIVING DEAD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Guess I'm one of those overly sensitive people June 19 2014
By Calimele - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book. Fun, witty and scarily sexy while at the same time gross as hell. This book? Not so much. The author seems really obsessed with penises. I mean REALLY obsessed. And puss oozing ones at that. Gross, but not a total breaker. Fish hook guy is funny, Gil is on point as always, Wendy is her usual mean but funny self, but Amanda...oh boy. Her character has turned into a just plain unfunny, bitter b*tch. I seriously cannot stand her in this book.

Then there's the overuse of the word ret*rd. Maybe I'm too sensitive, but raising a handicapped child kinda does that to a gal. I read to enjoy myself. I do not enjoy jokes about the handicapped being told over and over and over. It's not once or twice, it's multiple times and with side notes mocking the reader if they are offended.

With all of that combined, what could have been another funny and engrossing read just became a really irritating and uninteresting bore. The author went from being really funny in the first book to trying too hard and being annoying.... like a loud drunk at the bar trying to impress the ladies with his abrasive laugh and obnoxious jokes then making fun of the chick cause she's not interested. Not fun.
