Don’t be fooled by the cover, this isn’t an m/m/m ménage romance but rather a story of two psychic mediums, Quinn and Hunter who partner each other in using their skills for hire. Sometimes this means that they help the police solve murders, sometimes they appear on cheesy cable TV programmes and sometimes they get hired personally to find things. In this case the person hiring them is a zombie, Dustin DeWind, who hopes that the pair of psychics will help him to find his ex-lover. In re
Despite the title, the zombie IS NOT one of the main couples. Just so you know :). The story is narrated by Quinn McConnell. He is one part of the duo pyschic mediums -- and oh, he is in love with his straight partner, Hunter Janz. This situation almost brings Quinn to the end of his sanity until a mysterious man, by the name of Dustin DeWind (he loves puns :p) who claimed that he is already dead, asks for their help to find his lover, and in progress, seems to bring Quinn and Hunter closer.

Abercrombie Zombie is one frustrating piece of work.

To start with, I like the psychic mediums angle and the different sort of take on zombies - at least in Dustin's case, for all I know, non magically induced Zombie-ness still involves mindless brain eating.

But I could not stand Hunter and Quinn's relationship. I think it was mostly Quinn and his insistence that Hunter must be gay and his constant need to bone Hunter no matter what the situation. It doesn't help that the book is first person fro

I'm so disappointed with myself for not quickly catching on to what was going on and WHO it involved in the Prologue. Some greatest-fan-of-a-certain-couple I am. lol

Anyhow - I loved this book - zombies, psychics, ghosts, friends-to-lovers and a magic man who shall remain nameless = winning combination.. KZ's writing style always hooks me in right away, always flowing and descriptive without being flowery, her dialogue was witty and catchy and I found the plot to be both unique and interesting. Q

This was nice and different. Making a Zombie sympathetic isn't an easy task, but I came to like Dustin a lot (despite his tacky nom de guerre). The romance between Hunter and Quinn was captivating and sweet; Quinn's narrative voice refreshing. An entertaining, recommendable read.
I admit it. I picked this book totally based on its title. I found myself pleasantly surprised at what a good read it was.

This book was a fun, shorter read. All of the characters were engaging and likable. The plot moved along at a good pace and was entertaining. I enjoyed the love story aspect also and these two guys were really good together. If you're looking for a different but good kind of read I think you should check this one out.

KZ Snow continues to show a deft hand in writing stories with a paranormal/fantasy twist in this novel, producing an entertaining and satisfying read. The main characters, Quinn and Hunter, both psychic mediums, are likable characters. Quinn is gay, and finds concealing his feelings for the straight Hunter (well, mostly straight?) growing more difficult over the 3 years of being friends and business partners. Just as they are called in to assist the police in a Missing Persons investigation, the ...more

The writer has such a beautiful way of writing, the blend of description and dialogue so engaging that you are lost effortlessly in the prose. This book had such distinct characters and I loved them all, especially Dustin. I could see a whole series of these books with Hunter and Quinn and Dustin soliving crimes. Hopefully we will be gifted with another.

This was a very interesting read. I found myself pleasantly surprised with the book even though it was not all what I expected. When you consider the title and combine it with the cover, you would think this was a book about well dressed zombies running amok and munching on the human race, right? It is what zombies do, afterall. And when you throw in the less than stellar rating of 3.49 stars, you probably think that this is not only a zombie read, but a mediocre one at best. Am I right? If so, ...more

I read this for a challenge and I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. I'm not a fan of zombies--the whole dead angle is a bit of a turn off for me. But, as far as zombies go, this was a good dead guy who dressed very well. There where three MCs here, two were the psychics/mediums, and then there was the zombie. The psychics get an HEA together, and the zombie a solo HFN.

Although the characters lacked depth, they kept me interested as they wound their way through a murder scene, a ghost hunt, and

I actually really enjoyed this different spin of a zombie book. Loved all three key characters, Quinn and Hunter, working psychic partners, consultants to the police on a murder investigation. And throw out all concepts of zombies, here is well dressed interior designer, Dustin DeWind who eats regular food not brains, offers his services with his ability to see and talk to ghosts. Of course, he has his own agenda. A fun short read.

What I like the most about K.Z.'s writing is the change of genre and even writing style from book to book. You never know what you'll get when you open one of her books. When I saw the title of this one, I knew I would have to have it. And, yes, I was guilty of all the bad puns Quinn could think of and more, including "Braaaaains!". XD

Anyway, this is a paranormal-lite novella, with very little general background - it's not clear how widely the existence of people with the special abilit

I adore stories about people with any sort of mental ability: telepaths, empaths, psychics, mediums. They just fascinate me.

And zombie stories can be great good fun.

So when I saw that this combined psychics/mediums and zombies, I was very excited. And I actually really like that it turned out to be significantly less gory and zombie-like than I'd anticipated going in.

I love that there were still ghosts and deliciously spooky paranormal investigations, but that I didn't have to slog through overl

Quinn and Hunter are psychic mediums. Quinn is in love with Hunter but beyond one little incident in a car, Hunter appears to be straight and was even engaged to a woman for awhile. They are approached by odd, but well dressed Dustin, who asks to work with them, in return for a favour. Okay, Dustin is a zombie and he can't seem to find his ex who turned him and needs the guys help. And maybe he can help them along the way. This is a very cute story with some creepy paranormal stuff. I liked the ...more

I inadvertently got this because I was looking for Zombie books.
And while it does feature a Zombie he is not the main event.
Quinn and Hunter are psychic mediums, they have worked together for 3 years, and had a bit of a thing initially. Except Hunter turned out to a have a girlfriend while Quinn is queer.
They skirt around each other, cue some sexual tension.
The zombie of the title comes to them to find the man who made him a zombie.

The story is in parts suspense, romance and fairy tale.

This book was about 3.5 stars for me. It wasn't a bad read, but it didn't flow that well. It started with an interesting prologue, but then it never got back to the prologue so I was left wondering what the prologue was even for.

Quinn McConnell and Hunter Janz are both mediums. Quinn can feel the physical experiences of a ghost's past life, while Hunter feels the emotional side. With this complementary skills, they decide to go into business together. I liked Hunter and Quinn and the chemistry b

A refreshing change of pace for the M/M genre. Oh, how I love when an author is willing and able to write a story that happens to have some X-rated love scenes, and not write erotica and loosely frame a story around it. Snow is the former, of course, and it's why I keep reading her books.

My only major complaint was the prologue. It was, in my opinion, unnecessary and a spoiler. (Though most prologues do tend to be not necessary to the story.) I'd have preferred to figure out Dustin as the MCs di

Interesting. Very very interesting. Way too short.

Zombies, psychs, and magic. All with two love stories wrapped up within 133 pages.
I think I would of enjoyed it more if Quinn and Hunter were just together instead of coming together.
I did like the Remy and Dustin part though.

I have to say I'm not sure what the prologue had to do with the story? I just don't see who it fits. Maybe I'll have to go back and re-read it.

This is my second book by K. Z. Snow, not my last for sure.

Very good paranormal m/m romance about a pair of psychic mediums who are approached by a man claiming to be a zombie and to need their help finding the man responsible for his condition. Two important points: There is no zombie sex (whew!), but there is a cameo appearance by Wisconsin's favorite wizard... :)

Let's just say the case these guys were working on was not their main concern. Getting nasty was all that was on their mind. Plus, the zombie factor really was an afterthought. Could have been a great story but fall flat.

A zombie who cares about his appearance is just one of the pleasing elements in this extremely enjoyable paranormal romance. I certainly hope it will have a sequel. The main characters are too good not have another book devoted to their developing relationship. Another winner from K.Z. Snow.

So why did this take me two days to read - a book with a little over 100 pages?? Because it was freaking awesome and I savored and re-read and read again several passages!! Oh my goodness, the writing is superb! A little more than halfway through and I one-clicked my way through the author's other books.

I enjoyed it but I found the Dustin the zombie more intriguing than the main characters. The fact that Quinn and Hunter were psychic mediums helping the police to solve crimes was interesting and their romance was sweet but Dustin stole the show for me. I would love to read more about them solving mysteries together and Dustin either finding new love or reconciling with Remy.
Karen Dubois
While I enjoyed this book, it really could have benefited from being longer. The psychic concepts were intriguing, but not fleshed out as much as I'd like. They seemed to be a main focus of the story, but were treated as a throw away. Quinn and Hunter were both likable, but I didn't get a real sense of chemistry between them.

This friends-to-lovers is short and slightly sweet, if zombies playing matchmaker can be called sweet.
I just didn't buy too much into Hunter and Quinn's relationship, especially not when Hunter spent most of the story throwing mixed signals, and then all of a sudden just falling into bed with Quinn and everything's resolved. I think perhaps if the story was longer and the relationship between them had more time to develop, I'd believe it more.

The ending also left me unsatisfied. I mean come on,

Quinn and Hunter are psychics who can sense the emotions of people from places and things they’ve touched. They help the cops, do private investigating, and some talk shows. Though they met in an odd way (a one time hook-up at a wedding) they are business partners and friends now, and have been for years.

Quinn is out and proud and secretly pining for Hunter. Hunter is a “straight man” who occasionally finds men attractive. He’s been engaged up

I must admit that I picked up this book fully expecting to make fun of it. The title totally threw me for a loop as I was expecting some model loopy-loo with a craving for brains or something equally as goofy. I don’t know. But, the malicious smile I had plastered to my face as I started reading the first few lines got wiped off pretty darn quickly as I got fully sucked into this book. I really enjoyed it. It was a sweet story about two men, Quinn and Hunter, who are colleague

When I saw the title of this novella I had my doubts, but thought it’s a quick read and why the heck not! Boy, am I glad I did. This might only be a 100 page novella, but it was fabulous reading. By that I mean the writing was top notch you got a lot of layered story content. This was as satisfying as any novel.

It is written from the POV of Quinn. He is a psychic/medium and works as a ghost hunter and sometimes with law enforcement to help solve crimes. He

Reviewed by Joe: As soon as I saw this title I had to have it. I was salivating. I was shaking. The name sounded so cool. I could just picture a bunch of good looking Abercrombie models getting turned into zombies and wrecking havoc or something along the lines of 90210 meets Night Of The Living Dead. Unfortunately this was not the case. There was no shallow model zombies and no traditional zombies running amok. This is not to say that the book is not good, K.Z.
