[Review]: Beach Blanket Bloodbath by Mark Henry

Title: Beach Blanket Bloodbath
Author: Mark Henry
Series: Amanda Feral
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 7, 2014

I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  After a few years away from the Urban Fantasy genre, the dark and dementedly funny Mark Henry is back with the first installment in a new trilogy of hilariously gruesome novellas featuring everyone's favorite undead socialite, Amanda Feral.

In Beach Blanket Bloodbath, Amanda, Wendy and Gil descend on an idyllic seaside village for some rest, relaxation and consumption of cute coastal townsfolk but their plans are derailed when they become embroiled in a mystery at the Miss Sand Flea Pageant involving overtly perky go-go dancers, the inevitable wereshark attack and an annoying octogenarian sleuth/writer.

Thoughts: Amanda Feral is back! With her friends by her side, she is headed to the beach. Not really a hot spot for zombies, But then Amanda isn't your average zombie.  An excellent installment to the series. So, glad to see Amanda is back. Beach Blanket Bloodbath is a fast, fun read. Mark Henry is one the most unique writers I've come across. His stories always have wonderful mix of gore, mayhem and humor. I recommend this one, and the whole series really.

Score: 4 Stars
