In this sci-fi debut, an alien species hopes to claim Earth, but the invaders haven't fully researched what goes bump in
At NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, astrophysicist Jean-François receives some exciting data in the middle of
the night. His theory that an interstellar vessel has been using wormholes to visit Earth for the last 50 years now seems
irrefutable. Yet his boss, Raymond Saticoy, wants physical proof of aliens before telling the president. Meanwhile,
President Michael Addison greases palms at a fundraiser at the Watergate Hotel. With him are the lovely first lady,
Laurel, and his no-nonsense vice president, Peyton Willis. What neither politician realizes, however, is that Laurel slays
vampires on the side, doing her best to clear Washington, D.C., of bloodsuckers. Her nemesis is Julius, a nearly
3,000-year-old vamp who tonight has chosen the sweet young Mary to feast upon. They leave a bar in southeast Georgia
and stroll toward the Heartsoot Creek Cemetery. When he finally pops his fangs into her neck, her true form of a
"bug-eyed, insect-like creature" stands revealed. She escapes through a wormhole, leaving Julius speechless. And what
does any of this craziness have to do with AWOL Pvt. Johnny Kester? By the time Johnny witnesses a nearby military
base explode, Abugov has readers firmly in the grip of his absurd, satisfying creature-fest. Fans of Buffy the Vampire
Slayer should adore Laurel, and those cringing at the current state of the world may chuckle when Addison says, "I got
all these nukes. Such a pity I can't use them." As the aliens attack, causing quick, massive casualties, Willis tells the
nation, "There are no countries anymore. Just us, and them." The author maximizes the carnage when alien goop infects
people, turning them into the walking dead. Dinosaurs, appearing in only brief interludes except at the finale, prove the
ultimate narrative wild card. The most engaging aspect of this gonzo mash-up is seeing which characters rise to the
occasion and which end up with their "vital digestive organs" yanked free.
A chaotic, full-throttle parody that's as smart as it is slimy.

This is an action adventure with a rapidly rising body count. Don't get too comfortable with many of the characters. There is palpable tension throughout, heroism, surprises, cliff hangers, and a good serving of comic relief. This is especially true when the dinosaurs are named Dinah, Daffy, and Donald... and they end up being one of the saviors of humanity.
Speaking of humanity, who knew that vampires would step up to the plate? And the Zombies? Well, they are just zombies... that go a long way to saving mankind.
This was a good book, that I enjoyed immensely. Don't be put off by the title. Although accurate, the book is really better than you'd think.
Zombies vs. Aliens vs. Vampires vs. Dinosaurs by Jeff Abugov is the most fun I've had reading a book in a while. Jeff Abugov is a creative genius in coming up with this plot and I had no idea how he was going to write his characters out of all the seemingly impossible difficulties they found themselves immersed in.
Okay...so the author basically has four different story lines which you can figure out from the title...zombies, aliens, vampires and dinosaurs. Each have their own thing going on and seem totally irrelevant from one another. They are great stores in themselves but when they intersect one another...look out!!!
I read this book so quickly because I couldn't wait to see what Abugov would come up with next! This tale is unbelievably and creatively a blast to read! I totally recommend this one to those who like some comedy and clever dialogue along with cool characters that do not do the expected plus a dose of horror mashed together into one terrific story.
Cheers to you, Jeff Abugov! I'm so glad I found this book, will read it again and look for more from you.
But really, this was a tale I enjoyed. There is no lack of action and just because you seem to be a main character, it does not mean you will be alive at the end of the book. For a quick read, take a walk on the wild side.
