Anytime there is a comparison to the Army of Darkness to a novel I am, shall we say, intrigued. These guys are the Frog Brothers from Lost Boys on fizzy lifting drink. To say that their exploits are fun is an understatement. I can completely envision Ashley J. Williams as a long lost relative of theirs.
The book is a fun take on the zombie genre, much in the same way that Zombieland took a bite out of Zed movies. Shaun of the Dead is good, but this is a campy goofiness that just can't be touched. The writing flows fairly well, the action is sharp, and the quips filled with wit. You will love the characters, and that doofy dog, Xanadu, too. You shouldn't be able to have this much fun without drinking.
One nice thing is that although this is fun, it doesn't mince on the gore and the horror. There is most certainly some adult themes here and chillins need not try to listen in to this incredible set of stories.
McEuon amps up the humor and action with his narrative skills. He switches effortlessly between the voices, and makes you feel like you are listening to one awesome movie that is playing in the other room. He made me laugh more than a dozen times just by the inflection of his voice.
Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

This Box Set contains 2 different stories that can be read as standalones but to get the full effect I recommend reading them in order. The Zee brothers and JJ are fantastic characters and don't get me started on how amazing Xanadu is!!! The humor, action and pop culture references make these stories extremely enjoyable. The narrator is perfect at bringing story and characters to life with distinct and easy to understand voices. I look forward to more in this series!!

This box set of vol.1 & 2 is a fun listen. It follows two brothers who are zombie exterminators. There are lots of action and zombie scenes and some interesting characters to meet along the way.
The narrator did a good job with the character voices and I didn't detect any problems with the production.
I was given a copy of this audio box set for an honest review.
