"The Year of Eating Dangerously"
March 19, 2012 - Amy Phelps
Not all zombies are mindless corpses that may or may not move slowly, but they usually all share an appetite for BRAINS! In K. Bennett's "The Year of Eating Dangerously," lawyer Mallory Caine is out to save the little people and defend the innocent, but she can't help but take a bite out of crime literally.
Ever since Mallory was brought back from the dead, she can survive bullet wounds and the like, but she has a craving for people's brains. Not only does this put a damper on her social life, as she wants to eat men more than date them, but now she has to defend her zombie-hunter father in court against murder charges. Talk about awkward!
But Mallory has always been a sucker for hard-luck cases and one walks in an a little boy who claims his mother isn't who she appears to be and wants to eat him! Is it another zombie? Or is there something else entirely more evil stalking people? It's up to Mallory to save the day (or at least save some brains for herself.)
For those who like their zombies thinking and feeling like regular people, albeit with weird eating habits, this is the right book for you. There's humor, mystery and more than a bit of paranormal. Urban fantasy fans may want to check this one out too. But zombie purists might find this one hard to swallow.
"The Year of Eating Dangerously" is published by Pinnacle. It is $7.99 and 328 pages long.
