Publisher's Summary

An Arizona suburb over-run by a long buried tribe.

A race to stop the dead from unleashing an ancient curse.

Two brothers keeping the apocalypse at bay, one job at a time.

The Zee Brothers: Curse of the Zombie Omelet is our action packed and hilarious introduction to Jonah, Judas & JJ, the lovable disaster prone trio, responsible for keeping the zombie apocalypse from becoming a reality.

Gruff and handsome, Jonah Zee, is the dominating, classic music loving leader, that calls the shots and keeps them coming.

Tobacco chewing, Judas Zee is the gun slinging, rock music loving goofball, that is slow to learn, but always has his big brother’s back.

And the hot and sassy JJ, is the heroine that captures the brother’s hearts and eyes, while doing her best to keep her dog, Xanadu, out of trouble.

Weird!

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I started this, it just sounded weird, but I was intrigued enough to get it!! Anyway, this is just under 2 hours long, but packs a lot into it. It's about two brothers who get a call to come check out a disturbance in a gated community. When their client calls them, he tells them he hears noises and moaning coming from the crawl space, they tell him not to open it, but what does he do?? Only goes and opens it. Just before the call cuts off, the brothers hear the zombie say omelet, omellleet, omeeelllleeet. Why would zombies be wanting an omelet?

I have to say, I loved the brothers!! They were hilarious. Their interactions were so funny and had me laughing out loud a few times. They were well written and developed, which is often hard for a book that is so short!!

The plot was...awesome ;) Lol. I loved the omelet part, it really was inspired!! How often has a Zombie book have the Zombies saying omelet? You will have to read it to see why they say omelet!!!

In all, a fun, easy and "tongue in cheek" read. It was a pleasant surprise and kept me entertained. I hope book 2 comes to audio!!

Ian McEuen was really good. He gave the brothers their own personalities and made them easy to distinguish. He was also clear and easy to listen to and seemed to have fun when reading it!!

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Funny!!

If you could sum up The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Entertaining, Omelet!!

What other book might you compare The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators to and why?

I have never read a book that compares to The Zee Brothers. This book is definitely in a category all on its own.

What about Ian McEuen’s performance did you like?

I loved all the different voices he used for each character. Ian McEuen is a great storyteller.

Any additional comments?

I usually read romance books, but this book was so funny. I love zombies and this book was thoroughly entertaining. I can't wait to read more from this author.

Funny well written book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators to be better than the print version?

I love how this audio book had music that really set the theme for the narration. I feel like the music was paired perfectly and other music choices wouldn't have been as great as a fit as what they choice. Perfect pairing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators?

I was laughing so hard listening to this, there were so many memorable moments. I really loved their first client who turned zombie and was attacking them trying to gum them to death. I was nearly cry laughing.

Which character – as performed by Ian McEuen – was your favorite?

Judas and Jonah Zee were my favorite mostly because they are the main characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was it's a nice short book, perfect to curl up with a blanket and listen to the whole thing. It's less than 2 hours and ideal for a one sitting listen.

Any additional comments?

I felt like this was a mix of ghost busters meets zombies which was a great idea. I loved every minuet of this book and I hope there are sequels to come!

Native American Zombie Mayhem

What made the experience of listening to The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators the most enjoyable?

The different characters were very individualized by the narrator! It was really fun to listen to. The incredulity came over very strong as well as the panic! Made it alot funnier than it would have been to read :)

What did you like best about this story?

The Grindhouse dark comedic adventure vibe was amazing! It was like no other book I have ever read and I can't wait for more :)

What does Ian McEuen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The performance was incredibly amusing and I loved the distinctly different characters! He has an incredible voice range and fully illustrated each one with his performance. I will definitely look into more titles narrated by him :)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The background music (opening and closing theme and Xanadu's Theme) was a really nice touch! Even if (because of the zombies) I now have "Thriller" stuck in my head :) LOVE that dog Xanadu!!!

Any additional comments?

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to the next one!<br/><br/><br/>Jonah and Judas are zombie exterminators. Getting a call from a new client should be a good thing... Until they hear their client get eaten! They can't let a zombie outbreak get outta hand, so client alive or not, they are on the case. Will they be able to contain the zombie outbreak before it becomes a full fledged Apocalyse situation? Will they be able to break the Curse? Or will they get eaten first?<br/><br/><br/>***This series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy zombie stories with a little horror splashed into a total Grindhouse darkly comedic action paranormal fantasy adventure with a smidge of sexy fun :)

Hilarious Zee Brothers - A must read!

If you could sum up The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators in three words, what would they be?

Deadly hilariously funny

Which scene was your favorite?

Their first client turned zombie trying to gum them to death.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie hunters!

Any additional comments?

WordsAPlenty received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review. This in no way affects the review.<br/><br/>There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie hunters! The brothers are Jonah and Judas. Their first client calls them to report he may have zombies in the crawl space under his house. Fortunately for the Zee Brothers, their first client lives in the small gated community of Winter Oaks, Arizona.<br/>Winter Oaks is the home and burial ground of the now deceased Pakatini Tribe. Buried among their people is an old sacred amulet which the loathsome President of the Home Owners Association accidently disturbed. The Zee Brothers arrive to find their first client dead; and they hook up with JJ (a busty beautiful woman) and her dog Xanadu who are visiting the family there.<br/><br/>The Zee brothers and JJ have to solve the mystery as to what has caused the Indians to rise (and why would a zombie want an omelet?) … and they know it is somewhere in the nearby landfill.<br/><br/>Well written zombie fun. Nothing is as it seems – Xanadu does some pretty amazing things for a dog, the magic 8 ball gear shift seems to be on target with everything the brothers are going through and if all else fails there’s chocolate! Grivante takes the zombie genre and gives it a fresh look and goes where no other has gone with the zombies and his heroes!<br/>Only 1 hour and 55 minutes long, Givante does an excellent job of packing a ton of fun and danger into this short audio. You will laugh!<br/><br/>Ian McEuen did an excellent job of narration adding personality to the brothers and JJ. His voices and interjecting of music in this audio was spot on.<br/>There were no issues with the production of this audio.<br/>WordsAPlenty gives this a 4.5 star rating.<br/>

well written and performed zombie fun book

Omelet ….. ommmleeeete …. ommmleeeete. Most zombies, if they speak, yell ‘BRAINS” but not these zombies … the infamous Zee Brothers, zombie exterminators clearly heard the zombies chanting “Omelet, Omelet, Omelet.” Drawing out the word each time with an eerily haunted tone.

There are ghost hunters, Sasquatch hunters, crypt-zoologists and then there are the Zee Brothers, zombie exterminators! The brothers are Jonah and Judas. One is down to 7 fingers (zombie accident) and other can’t drive but still tries!

The beautiful gated community and suburb, Winter Oaks was built on top of an ancient burial ground of the now deceased Pakatini Tribe. Unfortunately for their first client he has zombies in the crawl space under his house. The president of the home owners association reportedly is an obnoxious fool who disturbed the land and tossed an ancient amulet (not omelet) into the landfill.

By the time The Zee brothers arrive at the small gated community, all hell has broken loose. There are more “omelet” chanting zombies than they know what to do with but the brothers do take the time to fight over the gorgeous and voluptuous busty JJ and her mysterious dog Xanadu.

The Zee brothers and JJ have to solve the mystery as to what has caused the Indians to rise (and why would a zombie would want an omelet). Several run-ins with the zombies and their shaman reveal it is NOT an omelet they are seeking and they know the item is now somewhere in the nearby landfill (in truth JJ and the President reveal the big secret).

This is a well written and performed zombie fun book. Nothing is as it seems – Xanadu does some pretty amazing things for a dog, the magic 8 ball gear shift seems to be on target with everything the brothers are going through as well as providing JJ with some much needed “relief” and if all else fails there’s chocolate! Grivante takes the zombie genre and gives it a fresh look and goes where no other has gone with the zombies and his heroes!

Only 1 hour and 55 minutes long, Givante does an excellent job of packing a ton of fun and danger into this short audio. You will laugh! The Zee brothers take their first client and turn him into their zombie pet – he’s harmless as he has NO teeth!

Ian McEuen did an excellent job of narration adding personality to the brothers and JJ. His voices and interjecting of music in this audio was spot on and cheesy enough to make it all work together.

There were no issues with the production of this audio.

Loved this book!

This is not your normal zombie book its a fun and entertaining zombie book. The author had me laughing so hard throughout the book with so many things that brought out ah ha moments. Children from the 80's if you listen to this book you will find hidden treasures along the way and you will be laughing along with me. Just cracks me up. Millennials , well this just gives you something to think about and see if you can figure it out and find the hidden treasures. The narrarator did a fantastic job with the characters bringing them to life or errrr dead. Lol Great book to add to your library. You really won't be sorry you bought this.

A fun rowdy ride!

This was a fun zombie flick. There’s plenty of humor mixed with a little death and gore. Apparently zombies are a regular issue and there’s specialized exterminator companies out there to see to all your zombie needs. The Zee brothers get a call from an old penny pincher but arrive too late to save him. It quickly becomes clear that they’ll have a much bigger problem soon if they don’t stop the angry dead from rising.

I have a thing for stories that feature old disturbed burial grounds complete with angry ghosts rising to kick someone’s butt for disturbing them. For this tale, that happens to be the burial grounds of a local Native American tribe. It was quite fun to watch the boys scramble around trying to figure out what got these spirits so riled up and how to appease them now.

In steps JJ. For some reason she’s wearing tight shorts and a zipped up leather jacket… in Arizona… and I don’t think it’s winter. She also has a cute little pink gun. Now I’m all for tales that feature both genders going armed but I’ve never been fond of pink guns. On the other hand, JJ obviously knows what to do with said gun so if she wants a pink one, I guess it’s OK. For much of the tale, JJ is a sex object. Sigh… But then she takes down her share of zombies and protects the Zees’s backs a few times. So I’m on the fence about her character. We’ll see if she gets more of a useful role in the future.

Jonah and Judas make a fun pair because Jonah is a bit gruff and likes to be in charge while Judas is a lovable bumbling eager lad that wants to impress Jonah, and later JJ. Though I don’t think Judas will be getting many kisses with his tobacco chew habit – blech! I think I rather kiss a zombie! Jonah is missing some fingers and he doesn’t want to talk about it, grumpy man! While they are constantly jabbing each other, they each protect the other. It’s a good chemistry for this humorous zombie romp.

Let’s talk about Sasha. I really lie Sasha. I know. She’s the truck but she still kicks butt! Sounds like she needs a tune up and her transmission gears have had some teeth knocked out. First no longer works so the guys have to stumble over getting her started in second more than once. Those little touches were realistic and brought back memories of my early standards. Sasha also has a magic eightball gear shifter, so she gets to add her 5 cents to mix on a regular basis. JJ comes to like that eightball quite a bit.

Then there’s Xanadu! To the rescue! With disco music! Yep, you heard me. Complete with disco lighting. I know, it is so ridiculous and so much fun. It’s like the author took a dare on whether or not he could write a zombie flick that involved a burial site, omelets, a pink handgun, an eightball, disco music, and Xanadu. Well, if that’s the case, he did it well. This story was pure fun to listen to. I’m looking forward to future installments.

Narration: Ian McEuen did a pretty good job with this book. There was one or two odd pauses but that was the only technical issue I caught. His voice characterization is spot on. He has distinct voices for all the characters and his female voices are believable. I especially liked the variety of screams and moans he came up with for this tale. There’s also a touch of music worked in at appropriate times which really added to those scenes in the book.

Entertaining As Hell

Really amusing story and a great performance by the narrator. This could totally make an epic B Movie. Campy and hilarious with a ton of action and comedy... not to mention a disco dog that poops diamonds. Yes, I said a disco dog that poops diamonds. That alone should make you want to check this story out.

Hilarious zombie story!

The Zee Brothers: Zombie Exterminators was absolutely hilarious! I was laughing throughout the whole story. The dog was a little cheesy but I still liked it. The music references were great! Especially the phone number for the Zee Brothers! "Ask for Jenny" lol. The toothless zombie trying to gum them to death was great!

Ian McEuen does a great job with the narration and each of the characters. I loved the voices! That made the story so much funnier!

"We don't do bugs, ma'am. We deal with, bigger..."

Any additional comments?

Mr. Pembleton living in the Winter Oaks gated community has an infestation problem. Something is scratching in the crawl space under his home. Burt from Pestbegone takes a look and recommends he consult the squabblesome Zee brothers, Judas and Jona, to get it sorted out. <br/><br/>This is a zombie book with a difference, think Zombie-type Ghostbusters. It is non stop comedic action as the couple, plus a young woman and her dog, Xanadu, battle ever increasing numbers of long dead tribal Indians on whose land the Winter Oaks community had been built. Funny throughout, it is sometimes laugh out loud hilarious.<br/>The narration by Ian McEuen is great, with the brother's voices clearly differentiated as they bicker with each other, and all other characters, including JJ and her dog, are also instantly distinguishable. He paces his reading to keep up with the text (especially important in this story) and carries the excitement to the listener. Unusually, not only is the book introduced and concluded with music, at very select points music is also inserted into the body of the text as soundtrack - with great effect. This was provided by a group called Frostbite.<br/><br/>A funny book, a good narration, inovative ideas - and zombies. What's not to like? Thank you so much, Xodus, for the gift of this Audiobook. More please. I loved it.
