Orgasms, Chocolate & Zombies? Just an average day for Jonah, Judas & JJ.
The Zee Brothers have a strange and dangerous vocation. While some hunt rodents or pests in the dark, Jonah and Judas tackle much larger prey… zombies. Equipped with a well-loved artillery gun, DeeDee, and a much used and somewhat abused pickup truck called Sasha, the duo clear the night of undead pests, keeping the ever present threat of a Zombie Apocalypse at bay.
When the slap happy pair receives an after hours call for extermination that ends in a gurgle, they head out, guns locked and catch pole loaded. It seems that an incredibly foolish developer built a high cost, gated community atop an old indian Reservation – a Reservation that soon became a graveyard and home to magic much older than the flimsy walled homes that tried to take over. Lost in this sea of new houses, an ancient artifact lay buried till the obnoxious Home Owners Association President disturbed it – and awakened the Zombies from their slumber to retrieve it.
Now it’s up to the Brothers to find it and lay the walking dead to rest. Along the way they meet the woman of their dreams, JJ, her magical and disco imbued dog, Xanadu, a denture wearing Zombie and a High Priest that offers a bit more danger than DeeDee can handle.
Filled with pop culture nods and heroes that just don’t know when to quit, it’s a slap happy, blood filled adventure, as the trio fights off zombies and the brothers fight each other for JJ’s affection.
Title: The Zee Brothers, Zombie Exterminators: Curse of the Zombie Omelet
Narrator: Ian McEuen
Length: 1 hour, 55 minutes
Publisher: Grivante Press
Released: December 8, 2015
What a fun audiobook! The brothers, Jonah and Judas, were delightfully lovable. Their interactions with each other and those around them was entertaining.
Grivante took the zombie genre and tipped it on its head with a world that contains zombies yet hasn't gone post-apocalyptic. Throw in a dash of humor, just a pinch of magical dog, and add to that the omelet confusion, and you've got the recipe for an original zombie book. Though short, it's fast-paced and highly entertaining with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.
Though I'm an avid reader, I confess that in this case, the audiobook was probably the better option simply because the narrator, Ian McEuen, is incredibly talented. McEuen didn't simply read a script; his performance brought each and every character to life. Each had their own distinctive voice, and their individual personalities rang loud and clear. I could have closed my eyes and seen the entire story play out in my mind as if I sat in the front row of a theater production of the book. J.J.'s dog, Xanadu, even has his own theme music.

About the Author
Grivante writes sci-fi, fantasy, horror and post-apocalyptic fiction with a writing style that bounces between comedy and action-packed horror, most often mixing together to create things like Zombie Omelets and Spleen Soup.
He is best known for his Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminator series, a comedic horror series that both celebrates and pokes fun at everything that makes zombie pop culture cool.
His publishing company Grivante Press focuses on publishing page-turning speculative fiction.
He loves things like George Romero’s “Of The Dead” movies and Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” and feels there are many authors telling those types of stories well. He’ll leave that type of story telling to them and keep focused on the weird gonzo-action filled tales he likes to write and his readers like to read!

About the Narrator
Bred in a test tube in a far distant future, Ian is a prototype never meant for mass production. A rare genetic hybrid of opera singer, actor, narrator, rock vocalist, and electronic music producer, he travelled back in time to join forces with Earth’s last and best hope: the underpaid, under-appreciated, and oft misunderstood writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Since then, he has narrated over 20 audiobooks, voiced characters in video games and cartoons, and melted many a face with his powerful vocals.
