(The first book in the Amanda Feral series)
A novel by

 
 
Seattle. One minute you're drinking a vanilla breve, the next, some creepy old dude is breathing on you, turning you into a zombie. And that's just for starters. Now, the recently deceased Amanda Feral is trying to make her way through Seattle's undead scene with style (mortuary-grade makeup, six-inch stilettos, Balenciaga handbag on sale) while satisfying her craving for human flesh (Don't judge. And no, not like chicken.) and decent vodkatinis.

Making her way through a dangerous world of cloud-doped bloodsuckers, reapers, horny and horned devils, werewolves, celebrities, and PR-obsessed shapeshifters--not to mention an extremely hot bartender named Ricardo--isn't easy. And the minute one of Amanda's undead friends disappears after texting the word, "help" (The undead--so dramatic!) she knows the afterlife is about to get really ugly.

Something sinister is at hand. Someone or something is hellbent on turning Seattle's undead underworld into a place of true terror. And this time, Amanda may meet a fate a lot worse than death...

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Happy Hour of the Damned blends the hilarious narcissism of Seinfeld with Night of the Living Dead. Who knew skincare-obsessed zombies were so much fun? I couldn't read this book fast enough." - Jeaniene Frost

"Gruesome, ghoulish and utterly groundbreaking. Mark Henry is daring and scathingly funny." - Jackie Kessler

"Happy Hour of the Damned - is it a comedy? An urban fantasy? A whodunit? Who cares! Mark Henry's written such a clever and engaging story that fans of any genre will totally adore it. Amanda Feral is the freshest, funniest character to come out of fiction since Bridget Jones and my only regret is she's not real and we can't go out for drinks. (Because, really? Zombies are the new black.) In short? I loved this book!" - Jen Lancaster

"Sexy, funny and twisted. You've never read anything like this!" - Richelle Mead

"More brisk, batty, raunchy, and catty than a room full of cougars with a margarita machine. Happy Hour of the Damned is funny as hell." - Cherie Priest

"Dark, twisted and completely hilarious. I loved this book!" - Michelle Rowen

"Call them the splatterati - werewolves who always know what to wear, zombies with bodies to die for, and vampires who know their fang shui - just don't call them late when it comes to happy hour, or the drinks might be on you." - David Sosnowski
