Synopsis: 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!
Review: Brian Rowe’s second Grisly High novel, ‘The Zombie Playground’ picks up right where the first book, ‘The Vampire Underground’, ended. Brin has survived the vampire attacks at Bodie Ghost Town, along with most of her film group, plus she brought home Paul, the son of the vampire king, Droz. Now there is a new threat – zombies. I actually preferred some of the other characters over Brin and Ash this time; I hope they can pull themselves together for the next book in the series. I wished we could have learned a little more detail about how exactly the zombies came to be as what happened was explained but not how those events created the zombies. I did enjoy the humor and the importance golf had in the story. Ending in a action-filled cliffhanger, ‘The Zombie Playground’ will leave you salivating for more…
