What do you get when you combine The Walking Dead with RuPaul's Drag Race? This awesome book. I had no idea what to expect when I started this story but you tell me it's filled with zombies and drag queens and I'm there. The general plot is an event happens that kills most of the US population and turns them into zombies. Three drag queens escape that fate by sheer luck. They head off across the US and pick up some stragglers along the way.
There's adventure and romance and fighting zombies and Cher. Really what's not to love about all that? I laughed out loud more than once. Despite the sheer audacity of the general plot it also had some sweet and touching moments and had some messages about the strength of people's will to survive as well as their desire to protect those they love. It also had a really good forward by a real drag queen that discussed the importance of drag queens on the gay community. It was really a touching and enlightening section of the book.
If you're looking for something different and something funny this is definitely the book to try. Hats off to this author for coming up with such a creative story. Really liked it.
Take three fierce drag queens, plus their undead drag sister, a massive solar flare, and a few billion hungry zombies, toss in the remnants of the U.S. Army and a hysterically funny/frequently poignant cross-country trip, add a spicy dash of sizzling romance and a helping of mystery and suspense, and what you wind up with is the deliciously campy Queens of the Apocalypse.
