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 heaping helping of mystery and suspense, and what you wind up with is the deliciously campy Queens of the Apocalypse.

The end of the world can be such a drag!

Action, drama, snark. Everything you'd expect from a book about queens and zombies.

It's happened. Something has gone wrong and most of humankind has turned into hungry zombies. Three very lucky drag queens were in the right place at the right time, and managed to be protected from the force that caused this.

Our main character, Destiny, was with two of her drag sisters, and they were quickly joined by Max, who happens to stumble into the bar they work at, also unharmed. They decided that staying is not an option, so they set off and find themselves some fun side-characters along the way.

The romance between Max and Destiny happened very quickly. Unbelievably quick, but I guess if you're the only gay men left and attracted to each other, why not? And that's what it felt like. You're here and I'm here, so let's have sex and fall in love. Though there really wasn't much chemistry between them before they were together or during, they were still hot and sweet together. I loved all the little moments they were able to steal together but I never really bought into their relationship, even towards the end.

There was snark everywhere. These queens couldn't go half a page without insulting each other. They obviously cared for each other and I could feel the love, but the constant jabs were tiring by 10% into the book. Don't get me wrong, they were funny and witty, but it got to be a bit repetitive.

The blurb gives a fair warning that this is campy. I think if you expect campy, you'll enjoy this fun zombie story. It's full of one-liners, silly dialogue and ridiculous situations. It doesn't take itself seriously by any means. It's meant to be fun and it is.
