Monday’s Mailbox for 2/20/12

I recently obtained two books from NetGalley which sound slightly different, but quirky and fun.

The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse by Nina PostThe Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse by Nina Post

Kelly Driscoll tracks down monsters for a living, but the job isn’t what it used to be. Vampire hunters are the new big thing, but Kelly doesn’t swing that way. When a reclusive client hires her to locate a rival angel, Kelly’s search takes her to a downtown highrise that has become home to hundreds of fallen angels and dimension-hopping monsters.

As the fallen angels take over the condo board, argue over who’s handling pizza delivery, and begin planning for a little shindig otherwise known as the apocalypse, Kelly must team up with an unlikely group of allies to find her target and keep the fallen angels at bay. In the process, she befriends a reluctant Angel of Destruction, gets tips from a persistent ferret, uncovers the mysteries behind Pothole City’s hottest snack food empire, and tries to prevent the end of the world.

The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse goes on sale February 29th.

Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies by James MarshallNinja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies by James Marshall

In a world where Zombies control banks and governments, only one young man sees the way things are and emerges from the CHAOS and destruction: Guy Boy Man. While he tries to end human suffering worldwide and in his high school, Guy Boy Man meets a cute pink-haired girl named Baby Doll15 who has a unicorn that follows her everywhere. An epic romance begins, but forces beyond their control are intent on keeping the young couple apart. One of those forces may—or may not be!—Guy Boy Man’s closest friend, a handsome African-American Ninja named Sweetie Honey; another could be four exotically beautiful, genetically engineered and behaviorally modified eastern European girls; yet another, the principal of their high school… not to mention an impending standardized test known as the Zombie Acceptance Test! Will Guy Boy Man find a way to be with Baby Doll15 in a world where everyone is doomed to become either zombies or zombie food??!!

Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies is part Napoleon Dynamite, part The Matrix, and all awesome. It’s the first book in the How To End Human Suffering series.

Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies goes on sale May 15.
