When the streets are full of bloodsuckers, werewolves, zombies and ghouls, where will you turn? The cops don’t know how to stop them, the Army’s pretty much given up and even the Marines are stumped when their bullets and grenades fail to stop the onslaught. Have no fear, Ushers, Inc. is here! Four high school movie ushers, who collectively have seen over 42,000 hours of B- and C-horror movies know just what to do.
Did you know copper pennies can stop a zombie in its tracks? Abby Cooper, Head Usher, does. Did you know garlic paste is twice as effective on vampires as garlic cloves? Abby Cooper does. Did you know werewolves are absolutely petrified of seeing a Hershey’s kiss? Abby Cooper does.
The girls at Cypress Cove High school—especially Rich Witch Mia Hopwood—call Abby an uber-geek; the victims she rescues from zombies, werewolves and vampires just call her one thing: Hero! But Abby and her fearless crew of movie ushers-slash-superheroes face more than just bloodsuckers and brain-biters. There’s Wyatt Winters, for one; he’s the hot new PR guru Ushers, Inc. has had to hire to handle all their press – and with his smoldering good looks and air of confidence, he’s causing more than just tension between Abby and her old boy-crush—and fellow usher—Zach Nash.
And let’s not forget the monsters, who aren’t too happy about four geeky ushers beating their butts all over creation. Now the League of Associated Undead (LAD) is converging on Cypress Cove, determined to stop Ushers, Inc. once and for all.
When it’s the monsters versus the monster hunters, who you gonna call? Ushers, Inc., that’s who!
I finished this book in one sitting! Party because it's super short, but also because it's super fun! In Ushers, Inc we meet Abby, Zach, Tracy, and Cliff: four orphaned, horror movie fans, working at the local Cinema. After fighting off a zombie invasion, the quartet are all over the news and their new business of fighting the undead begins. Abby is a bit reluctant about this at first, but Cliff pretty much takes over and gets everything started. Cliff is such a jerk! I loved to hate him, because without him there wouldn't have been any Ushers, Inc.
Abby is kickass and steps up when she's need and takes care of business. Zach and Tracy are great side characters, as well as Mia and Wyatt!
Ushers, Inc is action packed, humorous, completely original, and kept me hooked! It's like Scooby-Doo meets Fright Night and they go hang out at the nearest movie theater. This was my first book by Rusty Fischer and it definitely will not be my last! This book does not take itself seriously at all, and I really appreciate that. At the end I had a huge smile on my face, since I had such a good time reading it. And that's the whole point of reading, right?
