ARC Review: Jax and the Beanstalk Zombies by Avery Flynn

This little treasure written by Avery Flynn was a fun and quick read. Packed with little details from several Fairy Tales that added levity to the fact that the main characters spent a lot of time facing down hordes of zombies.

Jax and Veronica begin this tale both weighed down heavily with their previous relationship status, which ended pretty badly. Now under request from their mentor to go on one last adventure together they both pull on their big boy/girl pants and just try not to make each other too miserable. It was fun reading from both points of view as you got to experience their inner turmoil at having to face their ever swinging feelings for each other. Not to mention some pretty humorous dialogue that had me giggling.

Veronica was quick witted and was easy to offer more than her fair share of snarky remarks. Jax, a good ol’ southern boy, was a little less snide but appeared to be a well meaning goof-ball. Other than hilarious repartee, this story had a lot of action. Mostly in the form of zombie battling, though there was a healthy dose of steamy romance, and even a game of fetch with an oversized avian.

If you are looking for something light and fun to read, with equal parts action, romance, and whimsy then this book could be exactly what you are looking for.
