Blurb:


By the 2040s, the shambling dead have become and international problem. While governments and special interest groups vie for the most environmentally-friendly way to rid the world of zombies, a new breed of exterminator has risen: The Zombie Exterminator. When zombie exterminator Neeta Lyffe gets sued because a zombie she set afire stumbles onto a lawyer's back porch, she needs money, fast. So she agrees to train apprentice exterminators in a reality TV show that makes Survivor look like a game of tag. But that's nothing compared to having to deal with crazy directors, bickering contestants and paparazzi. Can she keep her ratings up, her bills paid and her apprentices alive and still keep her sanity?


Review:


When the Zombie Apocolypse finally falls upon us, how does America respond? With a Reality TV show, of course.


But fear not, for they are the


Funniest.


Zombies.


EVER!


I laughed so hard I cried at times. Of course, the only way to kill a zombie is to lop off its head, but that doesn't mean they can't be distracted. How does one distract a zombie on its endless quest for succulent living flesh? Romance novels, classic cars, and political cartoons are a good start.


On the technical side, this story is written, at least in part, in a journal style - with a modern twist. The story includes forum posts, cast blogs, and vblogs. All of these fill out the characters and make then each different and very amusing to watch as they progress through the trials of learning to slay that which was once human and dealing with the camera as well. Unfortunately, this style does not lend itself to description, and when the narrative is taken up by a more traditional third person narrator, this lack of description continues. I have no idea what most of these characters look like.


Overall, a wonderful story with just a hint of technical problems. I highly recommend it to everyone.

  1. Thanks, Cassie. I'm glad you enjoyed the book.

    I do leave the physical descriptions to the readers' imaginations, but if you'd like to see how I picture them, go to http://http://zombiedeathextreme.com/ and check out the contestant page. You can also learn about the episodes that didn't make the book, plus visit Neeta's website for Lyffe-Undeath Exterminations.

    I am working on Neeta Lyffe II: I Left My Brains in San Francisco. I'll start blogging about my progress in April at www.fabianspace.blogspot.com

    Thanks again!

  2. Karina's work is a riot. Her detective dragon Verne is a stitch. And she writes thoughtful science fiction, too. Thanks, Karina, for all the laughs - and insights.
