The Miseducation of the Zombie
 The Miseducation of the Zombie
 “You don’t just turn someone into a Zombie or a Werewolf or a Vampire. That shit’s been illegal for over fifty years, even if the victim is willing. No, there are protocols to follow. You go to the Bureau of Reassignment, you get tested; you get a permit. The victim needs to see a therapist, talk to their doctor, and sometimes receive hormone injections before the procedure even begins. No one is stupid enough to do that stuff in back alleys anymore.” But “turned” Zombies are appearing. And if the resulting violence doesn't destroy the nation, then the truth behind what's happening will. Vic, Senior Serenity Ambassador, is tasked with preventing the Zombie-Apocalypse. But how can he? He's juggling his love life, coming to grips with his own prejudices, and he hasn't slept for days — not with a moody Nymph sitting on his doorstep. All Vic wants is his happy ending. But he's about to learn that some fairy tales don't end well.

Get ready for a monstrously hilarious adventure!


The first page opener that “We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin.  But we all belong to the human race.” was brilliant and a foreshadowing of things to come.  When the next page referenced “Tweet-A-Pedia” and gave a brief overview of the United Federations, I knew I was hooked.  Timothe Davis, the author, effortlessly wove humor and the more somber undercurrent of prejudice into this novel.  The novel opened immediately with a monstrous revolution and Davis quickly introduced some of the characters in his world including goblins, fairies, vampires, werewolves and zombies to name just a few.  The main character was a human cop named Joe V. Al, aka Vic, who worked his way into an elite peace-keeping squad called the Sector Ambassadors for the United Federation of Sectors and his clientele are the monsters.

The plot moves quickly and we find out that Vic is on the hunt for some rabid zombies that escaped from their sector.  We follow Vic’s crime fighting adventures throughout the different sectors as he tries to get closer to the truth and The Miseducation of the Zombie.  A constant throughout this adventure is the love of Vic’s life, who also happens to be a monster, or an Otherworld Being as Davis refers to them. One of my favourite parts was when Vic visits the nightclub Rub-A-Dub-Dub and we learn what happened to Tom, the butcher, Dick, the baker, and Harry, the candlestick maker.  The references to fairy tales were all throughout the book and made it absolutely hilarious. I stopped counting the number of times I had to put the book down because I was giggling so much. With the help of his friends and girlfriend, Vic gets closer and closer to finding out what has really been going on with the Zombie crimes.  You will have to read the book to find out what happens in the end.

Davis created a unique world and wove a fascinating story that drew me in as a reader from start to finish.  He made his serious point of the prejudiced world we live in and utilized humor in a way that few authors can do.  I am definitely hooked and can hardly wait for Joe V. Al’s next adventure!
