Book Description

In Seattle's undead circles, populated by werewolves, devils, and rampaging yetis, Amanda Feral is one of the beautiful zombies. But to maintain her stylish rep, Amanda needs cash. The quickest way: appear on the reality show, American Minions, hosted by lecherous wood nymph Johnny Birch. Soon, Amanda moves in to "Minions Mansion," crowded with immortal fame whores. But even the 24-7 video cameras can't catch everything. . .

When Johnny is found incinerated, Amanda channels her inner Miss Marple (minus the fugly cardigans) to find the culprit. Was it Hairy Sue, the white trash stripper yeti? Tanesha, the glamorous trannie werewolf? Angie, the Filipino vampire with a detachable head? Unveiling the killer in a heart-stopping finale won't just save the show from cancellation, it might just keep Amanda alive-or as close as a ghoul can get. . .

"Sexy, funny, and twisted. You've never read anything like this!" --Richelle Mead, #1 New York Times bestselling author on Happy Hour of the Damned

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Clever, fast-paced, and so delightfully trashy that it should have been printed on Hefty bags, Henry's third Amanda Feral novel (after 2009's Road Trip of the Living Dead) smartly skewers popular culture. Brilliant, bitchy undead diva Amanda is desperate for a fledgling reality show to succeed, because being paid to judge it is the only thing that can keep her financially afloat. When someone murders the show's host, a would-be playboy wood nymph, the show's contestants—a snooty Belgian ghoul, a werewolf drag queen, a pair of sirens, a down-home backwoods stripper, and a tentacled manicurist—are all suspects. Amanda's got to solve the case while attempting to rebuild a relationship with her werewolf boyfriend. Henry gleefully delivers a sharp-edged, snarky whodunit with some smart and funny twists. (Mar.)

From Booklist

The third Amanda Feral adventure, following Road Trip of the Living Dead (2009) finds the fashionista zombie trying to save her flagging advertising company—and her relationship with her sexy werewolf boyfriend, Scott. Amanda reluctantly agrees to meet reality show personality Johnny Birch, who also happens to be a honey-voiced wood nymph, at the strip club owned by her vampire mother Ethel. Johnny tells Amanda he has been receiving death threats, and he wants her to serve as a judge on a reality show where contestants compete to serve as his bodyguard. Realizing the gig could increase her company’s profile and bring in business, Amanda agrees, to the chagrin of her boyfriend Scott, who is tired of Amanda’s inability to commit to him. Despite wanting to fix things with Scott, Amanda goes forward with the reality show—and soon has a murder on her hands. Though sometimes a little too fixated on its own cleverness, Henry’s latest is perfect for those who don’t mind mixing girlishness and gore. --Kristine Huntley

In the third installment of the Amanda Feral series Amanda is back, dirtier than ever. Her ad agency is on a downward spiral and her expense budget is in the toilet. In order to keep her condo and pay off her debt to the Reapers Amanda says yes to an opportunity to appear on a new reality show. Yet, things are never simple with Amanda and she finds herself in the middle of her very own murder mystery.

Amanda Feral books always makes me giggle and snort like kids do when they tell fart jokes. Battle of the Network Zombies was no different, it was funny, sarcastic, and disgusting. If you like crass humor with a side of wit, this series is for you.

Amanda and Wendy make a great crime solving duo even if when they seem to be at odds with one another. Gil once again provides comic relief and I found myself looking forward to his bits the most. He is definitely my favorite character of the series. Scott and Amanda's relationship was a pleasant surprise and I look forward to more of him in the next book (fingers crossed!).

The book started off a bit slow for me, but the plot picked up the pace once wood nymphs started dying and the crazy character parade began. Amanda even shows signs of unexpected personal growth, proving her heart isn't rotted out after all. Battle of the Network Zombies is another snort out loud story of zombies with killer fashion sense by Mark Henry. Fingers and toes crossed that Amanda Feral's story doesn't end here. Oh and the best part? Battle of the Network Zombies is only FREE for your kindle at Amazon right now. Go on, get the rest of the series too, you know you want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the nasty drama! March 3, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally, a Paranormal book that is different from all the rest. Yes, it is crass, snarky, disgustingly candid and vulgar...but all in a GOOD way (I swear). It is also hilarious, well-written, and most importantly - original.

I never realized what I was missing in paranormal books until I read this series: A main character that doesn't feel bad about eating. I swear, I am sick to death of main characters feeling bad about having to eat humans. If you think about it, it is almost realistic if zombies really existed. Why is it that in other books the only ones that don't have food issues are the bad guys? The heros/heroines almost always have to overcome feeling guilty about needing blood or whatever else they eat. Love it that this one doesn't.

Another thing...of course parts of the book are gross. The main character is a freaking zombie and zombies are dead...hence the rotting and finding ways of dealing with it. I will give a tip to readers: If you don't like cussing you won't like this book. If you want your characters to have empathy you won't like this book. If you think that stuff is hilarious, like I do, then read away because it is FANTASTIC. Good job, author man!

. . . then this book isn't for you. Or me, for that matter. I thought I could handle it, since zombie books are generally high on my to-read list. However, I couldn't get past the first few chapters. It was too crass and disgusting for me. Even just skimming the book buried the needle of my grossometer.

The author's a good writer though. He can depict incredibly vivid scenes, and he's got quite the knack for finding just the right word. So if you can stand the content, you'll probably very much enjoy his style.

Would I reread this book? Never. Ever.

Would I spend money on this book? Nope. Wouldn't even borrow it from the library.

Kindle info
Formatting: very well formatted
Length: 5024 locations, or 5269 locations if you include the footnotes. Footnotes in a fiction book, chuckle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Review: Battle of the Network Zombies February 27, 2010
Urban Fantasy

Rating: 4.5 Enchantments

Celeb zombie Amanda Feral seems to be having a stream of bad luck. Between her car getting repossessed in the parking lot of her mother's strip club; her relationship with Scott breaking up (all his idea) and Elizabeth Karkaroff wanting to get out of the business, which means Amanda would owe her a staggering sum of money she doesn't have, not to mention she owes the reaper her first born, if she'd have one. But there might be a way out of all of this mess. Amanda can't stand Johnny Birch, the weird little wood nymph, but if being a judge on his new reality show will save her, what's wrong with that? Until she discovers Johnny's charred body on the floor of his room and suddenly the show's no more. With some quick thinking on her part, Amanda turns the show into a whodunnit and she's the lead detective, which would be great if she'd ever been a detective before.

What do I like best about the latest in Mark Henry's 'Amanda Feral' series? Hard to say, between the gruesome and sometimes macabre scenes and characters, not to mention all the dark humor, with every scene sometimes so gruesomely detailed, it's hard to pick just one. But perhaps it's Amanda herself, with her sarcastic barbs and outlook on life, especially dark in this particular tale. And who can forget the footnotes, where Amanda talks straight to the reader?

BATTLE OF THE NETWORK ZOMBIES brings the reader back into Amanda's life and she's just as delightful as ever, as are her two good friends Wendy and Gil. Hands down, one of my favorite scenes in the book is when Amanda first arrives at the mansion where the reality show is set to be filmed.
