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.
This retelling of Alice in Wonderland is truly bloody. Even though this is a retelling of a classic tale there is only a scattering of elements of the source material in this story. The zombies in this book are similar to stereotypical zombies but there are some elemental differences. Gena Showalters zombies still eat flesh and are still dead but they are not rotting corpses. They are infected and attack people on the spirit plane. Therefore there are only a select amount of people who can see and fight these zombies. When Ali’s family dies she sees the zombies and starts the fight. Other characters are introduced to help Ali in the fight and train her. Cole is introduced as a love interest for Ali and their chemistry is off the charts. I will read this series to the end because I must know what is next in store for Ali and the gang.
Keep Calm and Read On,
