"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."

Happy Release Day to Mark Henry! Book 3 in the Amanda Series, Battle of The Network Zombies, is coming out today!
My review will be up later this week!
***This is the second book in the Amanda Feral Series. Check out my review of book 1, Happy Hour of The Damned, HERE.
Road Trip starts off not too long after the events in Happy Hour and right off the bad things get started. Gil, the vampire gay best friend (who doesn't have one) has opened a new business where he turns people into vamps with class, for a price. We find Amanda, Gil and Wendy in a graveyard waiting for Gil's client to "wake up" and give him the 5 starts treatment. Things go wrong and the guy, a billionaire that hold grudges, goes after Gil.
In the mean time, Amanda finds out her dying mother is closer to death. Gil need no escape the city, Amanda need closure (under coercion), so they all get on the road to the Hospice Amanda's mom lives. They get in so many crazy and hilarious situations. Running into skinheads, killers, hobos with weird dietary plans and a family that seems to be stuck in the 50's and too perfect to be true.
If you enjoyed Happy Hour, you need to get Road Trip. The footnotes still annoyed me a bit, but they were funny a lot of the times.
One of the things I love about this series, is that Mark writes it like it is Amanda writing her own memoir and it works so well.
"For all I knew this was
going to be just another in a string of fabulous cock-ups that
seemed to be scripted for us by some unknown writer somewhere,
some overweight forty-year old loafing in cargo shorts
This book is hilarious, gross, fun and disturbing... You don't want to miss it! Amanda and her gang are crazier then ever and we even get a few more secondary characters. I just wish they got her mom's place earlier, Amanda's mom will make the worst mom out there look like the virgin Mary LOL.
