Publish Date: Published July 2nd 2012 by CreateSpace
Brin Skar has had a rough couple of weeks. She barely survived the grisly vampire attack in Bodie Ghost Town, the mysterious Paul is now a guest in her own home, and her dad Kristopher, dead for over a year, has emerged from the grave to try to kill his only daughter. After two somber funerals and the baffling disappearance of her Film teacher, Brin decides she needs a break from all the pain and heartache. And what’s a better escape than a round of golf at the brand new Macabre Golf Course? But as soon as Brin and her friends hit the links, strange noises and bizarre sightings begin to occur. And unfortunately for the group, the vampire encounter is going to seem like child’s play… especially when the zombies come out to play!
If Brin thought her adventure at Bodie Ghost town was over, she was totally fooling herself.
Brin was stressed with trying to keep the whole group in sink about the disappearance of their two friends. She is given the chance to play golf on the new course at the country club that has not opened yet. However, as they start the game, zombies start to erupt from the ground in search for their dinner.
This story is fast paced and action packed as the first one. Brian Rowe has this way of capturing humor amidst chaos that makes the whole goriness of the zombies great. Anaya, the bully girl, just completes this story for me. Her humor, nagging, and just plain awfulness makes you root for her character. With just a hint of romance, Brin is completely distracted and seemed clueless about the friend/vampire triangle that can emerge. This story has a cliffhanger, so there is for sure another book coming. It is definitely a fun read, and Brian Rowe never disappoints how he captures the teenagers’ personalities right on the nail!
