I saw this in a charity shop and, as a long standing Star Trek fan, couldn't resist, although the premise - zombies run amok at a Star Trek convention - sounded ripe for a stereotyped corny storyline. I was pleasantly surprised. Although most of the story is tongue in cheek until it grows more and more serious towards the end, the main characters are well developed and even small walk-on parts are sympathetic and convincing, and the action is well described and smoothly written.

The set-up for the story is that Jim Pike (yes, a cross between two of the iconic captains of Classic Trek) is newly promoted to assistant manager of The Botany Bay, a Houston hotel which is hosting a Trekkie/Trekker convention (the book helpfully spells out the difference at one point). The snag is, Jim has spent most of his working life since leaving the Army - where he underwent two tours of Afghanistan and still suffers PTSD-related issues - avoiding responsibility. But it lands well and truly in his lap when he starts to become concerned about a spate of disappearances of hotel staff and guests as the convention begins on Friday night, possibly connected with the bites a couple have suffered: bites which mysteriously continue to bleed. If that isn't enough, his younger sister, for whom he feels responsible since the deaths of their parents, is due to arrive as a convention attendee .....

The story is an enjoyable page turner. Jim and the main female character, a woman dressed as Princess Leia of Star Wars for a promotional video to help pay her way into medical school, are both engaging. As the odds against them stacked up, I wondered if they would survive long enough for their kindling romance to develop, or for Jim and the reader to find out her real name. There is an undercurrent of humour through most of the tale and clever asides to Star Trek, with for example, each chapter being named after an episode. And even the rationale behind the zombie outbreak is well thought-out with an unusual twist. So a well deserved 5-star rating from me. ( )

Fantastic, super geeky very quick read. I literally couldn't put it down, even to do homework or eat. It's now 5 am and I just finished reading the entire book in a single day. If that's not a glowing recommendation, I don't know what is.

Did I mention there's a Star Wars-quoting Princess Leia? ( )

I loved this book! I went in thinking that this would be so-so but wow I was wrong. I do think you need to know at least some about Star Trek get some of the jokes and references but I don't think that it is entirely necessary. I am very surprised at the quality of this book. ( )

A light-hearted mash up of _Star Trek_ and zombie movies. The main character was a little annoying but overall it was entertaining. ( )

I really enjoyed this book; anyone with some familiarity with conventions, Star Trek, Star Wars, and the fan world in general should find it very entertaining. And if you love zombies, well, it has those in spades. Well-written, engaging, and fun! ( )
