I was given an advanced copy from the publisher
I’m not a Zombie-lit fan, but here they’re a fun, silly addition to a crazy-complex plot. How the author manages to corral all his characters into the story is a mystery, but herd them he does, and provides more lunatic plots and imaginary weaponry than one book can hold.
When the real world gets to be too much, take a break in Zeus is Undead. (Though doesn’t Baskin, the ice-cream-spoon-wielding bodyguard, when he’s temporarily possessed, sound a bit like a current politician?)
Munz doesn't break the 4th wall, he runs it through a shredder, mulches the bits and scatters them to the wind. This is a gloriously whackadoodle run through a Zombie Apocalypse, Major C'thulu like incursion, movie making drama all the while listening to a very VERY dysfunctional family gripe and snipe at each other. If you liked the first, you'll enjoy this. If you haven't read Zeus is Dead you should before you take this one on. You'll be lost, and not in a good way.
A lot of fun.

Zeus Is Undead: This One Has Zombies is an excellent follow up to the first novel bringing back our favourite humans, half humans and gods in an epic quest to save humanity and defuse the threat of these beings from somewhere else one of which bumped "parts" with Zeus long long ago.
The story flows with pace and never lets up with the humour both in situations which call for the direct injection of a laugh and those that on the surface do not but hey read the title you are not getting an over dramatic dark toned tome here. Seriously when the zombies stop craving brains and now stumble around proclaiming "grains" and carrying a pretzel or having drunk beer makes you number one snack food you are in for laughs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the novel, maybe should have reread the first as it took a few chapters to get back up to speed but it was a blast, over the top fun with gods doing godly things and making things worse and humans trying their best and ending up in situations far worse than before.
It starts off by quoting from the original's Epilogue:
“The world would simply have to do without Aphrodite, Ares, Hades, and Hermes. The fountain flung them into the void between the stars, never to return without Zeus’s explicit permission—or at the very least some other contrivance of plot should it become necessary.”
And there are plenty of contrivances of plot needed here. And much discussion of the contrivances and literary tropes involved, perhaps most notably by the Muses. And, like I said with the first one, while a few too many tropes would be off-putting, the fact that there are so many and they are so important to the plot makes it humorous and self-mocking rather than dull and predictable.
It was good to see some of the fun characters from the first book back in new roles, including Jerry as the apologetic god of secrets and Baskin with his Mighty Pink Battle-Spoon (TM). As before, the different characters have very distinct and recognisable voices, and that works well.
So, enjoy a tale with Cosmics, secrets, a Querulous Trapezohedron, both the Necrinomicon and the Ergonomicon, mystery and mayhem - and of course the zombies...
