When life gives you lemons, kill zombies -- turns out lemon juice neutralizes the undead.
After a failed attempt at running away, best friends Nathan and Misty return home expecting to face angry parents. Instead, they discover the military has destroyed the bridges out of their rural town and everyone's fled--except a small horde of the living dead. The stress of flesh-eating zombies may be more than their already strained relationship can handle.
Even with the help of the town geek and lemonade-powered Super-Soakers, there's not enough time to squeeze their way out of this sticky mess. Unless the trio eradicates the zombie infestation, while avoiding the deadly zombie snot, the military will blow the town, and them, to pulp.
Their only shot is something with a lot more punch. Something like the Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb. But even if their friendship survives, there's another problem: Someone has to lure the undead into the trap.
I'm a big fan of the zombie genre, so I jumped to the chance when MJA Ware offered the book Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb to me for review as I thought it will be a great story to get me in the mood for Halloween.
Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb is targeted at all ages so it is not as horrific as The Walking Dead but has enough gory scenes to satisfy zombie fans.
It may sound strange at first to hear that lemon juice can be used to destroy zombies but the story does offer a surprisingly plausible explanation for it. Well at least more plausible than the dead rising from their graves.
I enjoy the characters a lot and come to love the three of them. Nathan maybe a little clueless but is handy in a fight with zombies. Misty, the girl next door is the only one who can keep Nathan in line. Their relationship is typical of childhood friends and if the story isn't targeted at the younger audience, I think they might have ended more than just friends after their life changing experiences together. Last but not least is the brain behind it all, Kali, who never gave up no matter what situation they were in.
Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb is a quick fun read filled with humour and zombie slaying action that I'm sure all ages will enjoy.
