BOOK SYNOPSIS
Zombies stalk the night.

Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls.

Sadly, they've got mine…

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend, Kat, at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking…and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.

My Thoughts
Drat the fact had to read on my desktop because only available in EPub format, did not faze me though as tore through this second book faster than the first and am glad to have had the chance to do so.

Following in the aftermath of Ali being bitten by a fellow slayer who had been bitten by one of the zombies her life has become even more fraught with danger than previously, this time however she is the danger that must be conquered.

I found myself amazed, bewildered and in agony for Ali and Cole time after time as it just seemed for every step forward they took they were forced 5 steps back.

The action again is nonstop at times, we also have moments of complete peace where everyone can just be for a bit even though those moments do not last long.

The richness of the follow up tale is as much of a treat as book 1 Alice in Zombieland was, it delighted the senses as well as fed the need to know what would befall Ali and her friends next.

At some point am hoping that the library will make book 3 The Queen of Zombie Hearts available to read as well.

BOOK SYNOPSIS
She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

My Thoughts
Am heartily wishing had read this sooner, it was a very unique twist on not only Zombies but the ones who fight them as well.

Having lost her parents and younger sister Alice/Ali thought that the world had stopped until she found herself drawn into a group of teens like herself who could see the monsters that took her family from her.

Finding a new lease on life with a purpose also means finding herself feeling the full emotional impact of being afraid for her new friends, her grandparents and most of all the boy who she finds herself drawn to like a moth to a flame.

Filled with lots of action as well as moments of thoughtful introspection this is a read that will appeal to more than just fans of Zombie slayers and teen romance, it has the power to cross lines of interest in the spiritual as well as the scientific too.

Grabbing book 2 Through the Zombie Glass from the library soon!

We made this rather than a full out meal for supper one night, baked a few biscuits to pour the gravy over and it was good and a very filling simple meal.
What is your favorite "breakfast for supper" meal?
