On the verge of death by zombie in a public restroom, a young man is saved at the last minute by a shovel—and the intriguing man who wields it. A man who doesn’t really want company, and definitely isn’t interested in sharing names. But ‘Mercury’ also comes with an RV that doubles as a zombie-proof fortress, and almost any company is better than none—even if that company has a cute nickname for his nailgun, and inflicts him with the name ‘Gaga’.
Domashita Romero has been all over my feed for ages, but I had never picked up a book of hers. I have been missing out!
This was basically Zombie Apocalypse+Road Trip to Canada. As for the MCs, we have Mercury (aka the madman who drives a zombie deathtrap) and Gaga (aka the last twink standing). And El Presidio, of course, the RV- zombie killer which was almost like a third character.
Mercury is one crazy fucker. I fell in love with him from that first moment when he rushed to Gaga’s rescue yelling “EAT SHIT” . I adored him during that striptease scene when he was shaking his ass, all while ” making something remotely musical with his mouth, a rhythmic mix of uhn and tsss like bad porno music” . I swooned when he tried to romance Gaga in the end. In his own way… “You ‘re Gaga. My pretty little Gaga.”
Gaga, the narrator of the story, had a pretty hilarious voice as well.
“I guessed if I was going to become someone’s apocalypse bitch, it would probably be less unpleasant all around if I went willingly.”
These two will go through some pretty impossible situations while trying to save themselves from the zombies, and find the World’s Largest Adult Bookstore. The sex scene in the end is sexy.as.hell!
The only reason I’m rounding down is that some questions were left unanswered, like what happened to Mercury’s family, or what their real names were. Alhough I think that last part had its own purpose to serve.
