A Mad Zombie Party by Gena Showalter – Book Review

This is the fourth in the Alice in Zombieland series, the books set in a world where : zombies are creatures who can only be seen by a select few, the slayers; slayers can push their spirit out of their bodies to fight and kill the zombies; there is an evil organisation intent on harnessing the zombies for their own evil purposes and also are trying to kill a heap of the slayers. Also, they are action-romance books.

The first books focussed on Ali (as in Alice in Zombieland), but this book is focussing on Frosty, one of the male slayers whose girlfriend, Kat (also best mate of Ali) has died and now visits him as a kind of ghost… a witness. Ali had a vision that Camilla, another slayer whose actions caused Kat’s death, is going to save Frosty’s life. Confused? It’s definitely worth reading the first three books before this to get the feel of the world and the characters. It’s been some time since I read this and Showalter is great at reminding the reader what came before, so it took me no time to get back into this world.

I don’t love the type of flirting that happens in the book, nor the text messages (though it’s no surprise to many that I write messages with full grammar, so text talk drives me a bit nuts), but I like the characters, and I like me a bit of zombie fighting action. Good fun fantasy romance.

Queen of the Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter – Book Review

The third book in the White Rabbit chronicles, Alice Bell and her slayer friends are still battling the zombies, plus the awful corporation, and still trying to find her way in her love life.

What I particularly like about these books is while they are somewhat cheesy and a little bit creepy (far too much sexy talk about spanking for me), they don’t seem to go the to the typical dystopia of so many YA novels. I want to see where the characters go. I want them to win, and I want them to have a happy ending. I’m more than happy to go to the fourth and (I think) final in the series.

Through the Zombie Glass By Gena Showalter (Book Review)

This is the second book in The White Rabbit Chronicles., which follow Alice Bell as she navigates her way through life in a world with zombies that most people can’t see. But she and a group of friends can not only see them, they can fight them. Not only that, there are a group who train and patrol and kill. But there are bad good guys too – an evil company who is manipulating things, including the zombies, for their own terrible ends. And to make things works, Alice is changing – she sees someone else when she looks in the mirror, and is starting to have a hunger for flesh…

I like these books. They are a really good, fun read, with some spicy moments (as you would expect from a book which is published by Harlequin Books). I mean, the characters all drive me somewhat nuts with their umming and ahing and not telling each other what they mean, or keeping secrets, or going against each other. But it all works out… onto part three!
