Book Review: Alice in Zombieland - The White Rabbit Chronicles


Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. 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 Review
This is the first book in a four book series written by Gena Showalter. This book is 410 pages long.

Alice and her sister, Emma, have spent most of their lives locked away from the rest of the world, because their dad could see "monsters" no one else could. Alice always hated her dad, until the night of a crash that killed her family. She now understands the "monsters" dad supposedly saw. After taken to the hospital, she meets Kat, a fun-loving friend for life type of gal. They become instant friends and then she meets Cole Holland and his gang. It was love at first sight, hehehe!! Actually, they had a vision together of them fighting and kissing, etc. That vision became a reality when the gang learned of her abilities to see and fight these "monsters". Will Alice be able to avenge her family? Are the visions real? Will Alice ever really fit in with the gang?

This was a great book with good descriptions. There are a lot of twists and turns, but the main focus is an action-packed romance. I think Gena Showalter did a great job describing the zombies. I would never think of the zombies as spirits and people aren't able to see them unless they are slayers. That was a great touch... Alice's abilities are great, too. She is even more kick-butt than Cole and the other slayers!! The only thing to consider "bad" is the mild cussing and some inappropriate themes.
