Panty Raid at Zombie High

Tinfoil Tennessee is just about as unremarkable as its name, but it does have one claim to fame. It is home to Zombie High, a super secure holding facility for zombies. When Molly disappears, Toby and Spud are positive she is at Zombie High and come hell or high water they plan to get Molly back. There is one big problem. Toby and Spud are major wimps and in order to pull off their plan, they are going to need some muscle to help them out.

After a carefully laid out plan somehow succeeds in conning two jocks into helping them with a supposed panty raid at Zombie High, things take a sudden turn for the worse. Not only did the conned jocks bring their dates to the panty raid, but it seems the security guards along with everyone else at Zombie High may have become part of the menu. Can they all survive the night? Is there any hope of rescuing Molly?

Perhaps the biggest pressing question would be, is there really such a thing as zombie panties?

Panty Raid at Zombie High was extremely different from what I expected. Rusty Fischer takes his readers on a darker journey into the world of zombies. It has almost as many dark moments as it has light hearted moments. While “Panty Raid” is not really a gory story, it does have its moments. It is almost the equivalent of a teen “Shaun of The Dead”. The stories are in no way similar but the gore to comedy ratio is somewhat much the same.

Overall, Panty Raid at Zombie High is enjoyable and fans of Rusty Fischer would be able to tell it was his writing even without his name on the book. The story flows evenly and will keep readers turning the pages. Zombie fans looking for a bit of comedy with a side dish of brains should enjoy themselves.

Book Blurb for Panty Raid at Zombie High

Toby’s best friend, and unrequited love, Molly Harper has gone missing. Molly’s boyfriend, “Spud,” thinks he knows where she’s been taken: the mysterious Zombie High, where Spud’s father just happens to be in charge of the top-secret medical facility famous for its work rehabilitating teenage zombies.

Armed with blueprints, passwords, keys and codes, Spud and Toby are ready to make an all-out assault on Zombie High and rescue their fair Molly. There’s just one problem: Toby and Spud are the biggest wimps at Cypress Cove High and need some muscle along for the ride in case any of the zombies get loose.

That’s where Boner and Zack come in. Two of the football team’s biggest players, the jocks are easily conned into joining Spud and Toby on their fictional “panty raid” the minute Spud calls them “chicken” for not accepting his challenge to spend the night at Zombie High.

When Zack and Boner show up to accept the challenge, however, they don’t come alone; they bring their two girlfriends, Lilac and Haley, along for the ride. With events spiraling out of control and zombies lurking around every corner, will Toby and Spud even survive their night at Zombie High, let alone rescue Molly?
