She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.
If anyone had 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.
“Yeah, okay. You’re right. I was having dinner with Zombie Carl the other night. You know, steak, rare, and a bottle of vintage type A. He told me all his secrets, but too bad for you I promised him I wouldn’t tell. In exchange I asked him to gather his best undead buddies and stalk me through my friend’s yard. And oh, yeah, it was totally fine if they wanted to use me as an all-night-dinner buffet, because having organs is SO last year.”
I loved this book! It definitely was not what I was expecting it to be, it was so much better!
The book is a fun, easy read and I really enjoyed the authors take on zombies and the white rabbit. She presented zombies in a new and refreshing way, which really made them stand apart from normal book / movie zombies.
The characters are delightful. Alice Bell, the protagonist, is witty and sassy and all things spice. She is a strong lead with a sense of humour, while she makes a few stupid decisions you never feel like punching her in the throat, which is a lovely change from most female MC’s these days. Then there is Cole! Damn! He’s tattooed and buff, what more could you want?!!

“Low maintenance is what’s forgettable. You might want to write that down, underline it, circle it and put a star by it. It’s golden.” With barely a breath, she added, “Now let’s find out if we’re compatible, shall we?”
This is a well written book that pulled me in from the start. I can not wait to read the rest of this series.
