Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Matinez

This is the author’s first novel and I certainly hope not his last. I will be placing it onto my February recommended books list as an Urban Fantasy. The writing and story are so well done the reader accepts that werewolves, vampires, ghost, zombies, ghouls, black magic, world gates and evil old gods all exist as part of our world. The writing is polished and flows along taking you with it.

I read the first few pages and admit I was not sure what to make of them, but I kept reading and was rewarded for this with an enjoyable romp. A short synopsis. Duke and Earl driving along in the desert stop at a diner, zombies attack, they stick around to find out what is what. One of them falls in love. Turns out a witch is trying to open a hellgate and let the very old and very evil gods out. Climatic scene, heroes and girl drive off for Las Vegas and next adventure, which is sure to find them because of the law of “Anomalous Phenomena Attraction”.

To quote a blurb on the back “Gory, sexy and flat-out hilarious Gil’s All Fright Diner will tickle your funny bone – before ripping it out of its socket.” Pretty accurate. For Urban Fantasy with a bite, that is a hoot, this is the book to read.
