Publisher's Summary

The Zee Brothers suit up for their second adventure. This time answering the call from a local charter school that fears they may have an outbreak amongst their students.

The brothers find themselves trapped inside the school, with no weapons, scared children and a host of hungry and toxic undead.

They improvise with the help of the school lunch lady and a rather intelligent young student to try and stop the toxic infection from getting out of hand. The aftermath leads Jonah, Judas and JJ to a small farm on the outside of town, where they find the cause of the outbreak with mysterious links to the brother's past.

The Zee Brothers are back!!

So the Zee Brothers are back! This time they get a call saying that there has been an outbreak at the school. The brothers go to check it out but end up leaving their Zombie hunting gear in the van because of the schools security system. They were only expecting one Zombie anyway! But what they find is an outbreak that is becoming out of control. The brothers find themselves on lock down with a hoard of Zombies and no weapons. Can they bumble their way out of this??

I love the brothers!! They are so fun and easy to like. They stumble upon these situations and while it seems that they won't get out of them, they somehow always manage to!! They are an absolute hoot!!!

While I liked the plot of this, I felt that I missed something. The outbreak happens because of a chemical component that was produced by a company, and from what I gather, the brothers had an encounter with this company already and stopped an outbreak, that's how they got into the job. I never read that one and so felt like I missed a big part of the overall plot. Also, the love triangle is really not great. I hate love triangles, but when you add in the fact that it's brothers, it just makes it super weird and uncomfortable. I cringed a lot and just wanted her to pick one.

In all, this was a fun read. I really do enjoy the boys and can't wait to see more from them.

Ian McEuen does a great job with the boys. He is easy to listen to and reads this well. He had plenty of voices and tones for the different characters too.

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

interesting book

Definitely a different take on zombies. Pretty interesting that the author came up with professional zombie killers. Very novel approach and different. I really liked this book. Most zombie books are serious and this one had a playfulness to it. The narrarator did a really good job with the characters as well. I could really picture the brothers in my minds eye. This is a break from the taditional zombie books. Great book to add to your zombie collection.

Oh, dear. Awesome!

The Zee Brothers are back, hilarious, and cruder than ever. I mean that, quite literally, as the its not too far into the book before one of the adults at the school is caught in a rather compromising position with someone else (not a student) as they turn into a zombie. There is a sausage nommed, and it isn’t a Vienna. So, again, just in case you thought otherwise, with a silly title like Zombie School Lockdown, this book is not for kiddos.

Jonah, Judas, and JJ are a fantastic team, and I was happy to see that they were all trying to make their unusual partnership work. Zombie School Lockdown is just as much about the development of the relationship between the three as it is the outbreak in the school. Jonah and Judas are well-meaning and slightly dense, and JJ is self-confident and has a good heart. The result is something that should seem like a semi-disgusting mess but is actually rather just unusually cute Watching Judas and Jonah trying to navigate how to try JJ will have you melting and snickering in turns.

The action is nicely-paced, the imagery disgusting and silly, and as usual, it is all exquisitely narrated by Ian McEuen.

If you haven’t read the first book: Zee Brothers: Curse of the Zombie Omelet, I highly recommend you do so before moving on to the second book. You could read just the second book, but you’ll get so much more enjoyment out of reading them in order. Grivante is a talented writer who knows how to write action and comedy flawlessly together. I can’t wait to see what the next installment in this series is going to bring. I have a feeling its only going to get more ridiculous from here on out. But I am a little worried about the pooch! There’s hints in this book that something a bit dangerous is in the works.

Fun and Different

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Grivante. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

This is another fun audiobook about brothers Jonah and Judas who are zombie exterminators. This time a school is being overrun by zombies. The Zee Brothers are called in by the school nurse who had seen zombies before when she was in the military. Even though the brothers can't get to any of their weapons because the school is in lock down, they are able to improvise with the assistance of the school nurse and a student. But even if the school is cleared, they still have to figure out where the outbreak began.

The Zee brothers and their girl, JJ, are all crazy. Her dog Xanadu is cute and has his own way of helping out. Even though this book has more of a plot than the first one, it is still funny. There were times it made me giggle but other times it was laugh out loud funny.

If you like something different, I definitely recommend trying the Zee Brothers.

Quirky Second Story

I enjoyed this second in the series! Grivante is just awesome at making a story that is fun and suspenseful plus action packed! It’s a short listen to and I highly recommend for some walks or a road trip to spice it up! You will love these Zee Brothers. So what I loved about the story was the plot, pacing, and character development. There was something I disliked and that would be the love story. It was odd and felt out of place in the novel. Plus it was a love triangle, my least favorite type of love trope. I’d have to give the story a 4/5 and the love part about a 2/5.

Ian does an excellent job narrating. Great control over voices and he felt animated! Which is important in an exciting story. I would love to listen to him in other works! I give him a 5/5!

Fun, questionably fun, but definitely fun!

What a fun slapstick zombie ride! The Savini Charter School is in deep trouble as first one kid and then a pair of adults and yet another kid come down zombie. Jonas and Judah get called out to do their zombie extermination thing. Of course, no one relishes killing kids (or if you do, then you’re a bit messed up). The brothers do their best to follow the posted rules about weapons and tobacco on school property, because they are polite fellows. Ha!

Meanwhile, JJ and Xanadu head over to the school as well and by the time they get there, they provide some much needed backup. I have mixed feelings about JJ as so much of her role is defined by her boobs. Sometimes I really enjoy her humor and her practical nature. Other times, she’s totally insecure and uses her sexuality as a crutch. But she also has Xanadu who is an awesome dog.

The brothers meet a wonderful nerdy girl named Nantucket (cue questionable limericks) who goes by Nat. She’s into science and home made explosives. This odd hobby comes in very useful for the crew as they have to deal with the growing number of zombies. Nat rocks and I really hope she takes the zombie exterminators under her wing. I can see her being their on-call mad scientist.

All together, it was entertaining and wacky. The characters are unique and the story held my attention all the way through. 4.5/5 stars.

The Narration: Ian McEuen was awesome! His performance for this book was outstanding. He really brings the characters to life and he sounds like he’s fully enjoying the story as well. All his character voices are distinct and his female voices are feminine. I really liked his voice for Nat and his rough, rude voice for the principle. 5/5 stars.

Delightful listening experience!

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

Preposterous, disgusting, perfect!

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

McEuen's performance brought each and every character to life. They each had their own distinctive voice, and their individual personalities rang loud and clear.

Any additional comments?

Another fun audiobook from Grivante and narrator Ian McEuen! With the original trio navigating their newfound relationship, Jonah, Judas, and JJ now face toxic zombies.

The action is fast-paced, the imagery simultaneously preposterous and disgusting, the characters three-dimensional, and again, narrated perfectly by Ian McEuen.

Grivante is a talented writer who intertwines action and comedy flawlessly. Then, add an incredibly talented narrator, and you've got a delightful listening experience.

I'm looking forward to the third installment in the Zee Brothers series, especially with hints that Xanadu's past may catch up to him—and to JJ.

Filled with Zombies and Humor

The Zee Brothers and JJ are back. This time they are called in on a case at a local school. It all started when Little Tommy was sent to the nurses office with a tummy ache. Tommy didn't just have a tummy ache though. The nurse calls the Zee Brothers. When the Brothers and JJ arrive they get more then they bargained for. Not just has Tommy been turned Zombie but they find a full fledged outbreak on their hands. Problem is all of their weapons are in the van, outside of the school, and they are locked in.

I love these Zee Brothers stories. This is my 2nd and can't wait for a 3rd. This is not your ordinary Zombie book. It is filled with funny redneck humor. I listened to the audiobook and Ian McEwan does an amazing job of bringing this story to life. Both of the books have been short reads but Grivante fills the page with humor and action. These books are not really for kids there is a good bit of foul language and this one even has a touch of sex.

Book 2

I like the brothers, they're simple, good hearted, and make me laugh.
The Zee brothers always manage to stumble through their jobs, winning out in the end, with the help of JJ and Xanadu.
