Publisher's Summary

Ava Birch killed herself and woke up a ghoul with an attitude and a hunger for the dead. With no manual and very little help coming from the supernatural community, Ava offers her services to the regional psychic. Her newest job? Apparently zombies have been spotted in a small town nearby. Ava wades in thinking that this job will be a piece of cake...or at least as tasty. Navigating meddling vampires, bothersome witches, and a peculiar case of memory loss...and now her best friend and human companion has up and walked out. Things go from bad to worse when Ava discovers that there is a force behind these recent zombie sightings that may date back to the time of the Black Plague. Sometimes a ghoul would just rather stay in bed...or at least her sound proof basement where nobody can hear you scream.

Ghoul Rules!!

Would you listen to That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies again? Why?

Yes, because it's entertaining and the first time listening I wanted to get to the end of the story to find out what happen. Going back and listening again would definitely catch what I missed before.

What was one of the most memorable moments of That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies?

Ava describing how the flake of the dead skin from the Queen of Zombies taste...

Which character – as performed by Pamela Lorence – was your favorite?

Lisa, for some reason with all the monster in the book being human was interesting to me.

Any additional comments?

I am still very impress with Brown's writing especially making Ava the Ghoul so fun to listen too. I am a huge zombie fan but Ava the Ghoul have gotten my attention. Can't wait to see what she does in the next book.<br/><br/>This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Nice addition to the series.

That Ghoul Ava is a fun addition to the urban fantasy landscape. She kind of ditzy, which has its own appeal in a genre of more serious stuff like Dresden and the Iron Druid. She is a fun character, with more depth than you'd expect, especially as she discovers what a ghoul is capable of. The setting is well drawn, with Portland being kind of an exotic setting from the usual NY/Chicago/LA norm in urban fantasy. If your more into the lighter side of fantasy, this is the book for you. The change in narrators from book 1 was a little jarring, but she got into the swing of the characters about a quarter of the way in and it was an enjoyable listen.

I was given a.copy of this book at no charge by the author in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Boom.

You'll suddenly see ghouls and zombies differently

Would you consider the audio edition of That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies to be better than the print version?

I loved both the audio and the printed versions of this book.

What other book might you compare That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies to and why?

Ava's humor reminds me of a mix of Katie MacAlister heroines and a shot of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Ava freaked out the Queen of the Zombies by pulling hunks of her flesh off and eating it like it was candy.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found myself laughing out loud more often then not. I had more than my fair share of people looking at me like I had went loco.

Any additional comments?

Love, love, love this series! I am so keeping my fingers crossed that it becomes a tv series or a movie!

A Fun Read

What did you love best about That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies?

I love the main character Ava and how she never seems to care who she talks to, she will say things that might get her in trouble. I also love how she gets sidetracked and misses important information.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a simple story line but it was fun to read. I had not been expecting the ending and even thought it was not what I expected I really enjoyed it.

Have you listened to any of Pamela Lorence’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, and this one was just as good as the first one. She gives the character personality and life.

Who was the most memorable character of That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies and why?

It would probably have to be ava because I can understand her. The things she says, does, and thinks make me laugh all the time. But more then just her the way she intereacts with other characters is great.

I cannot get enough of shark mouth

What did you love best about That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies?

Ava of course. She is the main character who became a ghoul and has embarked on a new life in the supernatural world. This is the second in the series and can be heard as a stand-alone but the first book is so good it would add to the enjoyment. The Zombie Queen (capitalized ) is the baddie in need of a beat down but there are other problems as well. Ava blunders her way though in her funny way and I enjoyed it thoroughly. There is a different narrator for this one that takes some adjusting to but may be better than the first in the end. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a good listen that has humor and supernatural elements as well. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Any additional comments?

It took a little bit to get use to the new narrator. I think she did a wonderful job. I love the snarkiness of Ava. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

An entertaining ghoulish tale

Where does That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the second book in this series I've listened two and can't wait to start the third. The second one in the series has been my favourite.

What other book might you compare That Ghoul Ava and The Queen of the Zombies to, and why?

Nothing compares to the Ghoul Ava, she is refreshing tale of the supernatural

Which scene did you most enjoy?

When she tried to get Jeremy into bed. Witty without going into the gory details

Any additional comments?

The first book in the series I didn't really like the narrator, this is a different narrator and she bring Ava more to life for me.
