book review: "night of the living dead christian" by matt mikalatos

"Night of the Living Dead Christian is the story of Luther, a werewolf on the run, whose inner beast has driven him dangerously close to losing everything that matters. Desperate to conquer his dark side, Luther joins forces with Matt to find someone who can help. Yet their time is running out. A powerful and mysterious man is on their trail, determined to kill the wolf at all costs..."

Though this is the sequel to My Imaginary Jesus, it can be read by itself. There are a few references to the other book but not enough to make you feel like you're missing something from the story if you haven't read it. I will say it helped prepare me for this book. I was already familiar with Matt's style and sense of humor as I began this book.

I don't normally like vampire/werewolf/zombie stories so I was unsure how I would like this. However, I enjoyed it. It wasn't overly gross or gory allowing me to overlook the zombies and instead focus on Luther and his journey to find the truth. I've come to enjoy Matt's humor after reading two of his books. While I didn't love the book, I'm glad I read it. Matt made some good points along the way and if you're into the whole zombie thing, you'd probably enjoy it even more.

I received a copy of this book from CSFF Blog Tour for my honest review.

You can buy the book from Amazon and learn more from Matt's site.

You can also read other reviews in the tour:


  1. I haven't read My imaginary Jesus yet, and you're right--I didn't feel like I was confused or missing something for not having read it.

    Like you, I don't normally read vampire/werewolf/zombie stories, but I was pleased to find that it avoided going in the direction of horror and focused on humor instead.

  2. Amber, thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the book. :)

    I'm meeting with my agent tomorrow to discuss my next book! I'm dabbling with... GASP... non-fiction! Aaaaaaah!

  3. Aw, Matt, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm excited to see what you come up with next! I enjoyed your sense of humor - definitely laughed out loud quite a bit with both books :)
