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….
Alice Bell use to think her dad was crazy. But her dad was probably the only sane person in her family. When a car crash steals her family, Alice is sent to live with her grandparents, where she uncovers deadly secrets. Here she runs into a couple of zombies and escapes with her life. Then she meets Cole Holland and his friends. They have secrets of their own, and Alice will do anything to confirm that she’s not crazy. But how will she get them to trust her? What if she is crazy?
When I picked up ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND I had the wrong thoughts, I was thinking that it would be a much darker retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I soon found out it was different, the plot was interesting – spirit zombies, who aren’t visible to everyone, are trying to take over the world. I was disappointed when I learned that it wasn’t a retelling, but what made me even sadder was the fact that ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND wasn’t even enjoyable. Half the book is about Alice thinking about Cole Holland, which meant that there wasn’t a lot of action.
I expected a lot of good things when I opened the book. I mean the first chapters were pretty good, but when Cole entered the plot, the entire story went down the wrong path. Gena Showalter didn’t really focus on zombies but more on the characters. Which is perfectly fine, but the characters started getting annoying after awhile.
Although I didn’t really like this book, I hope that book two in the White Rabbit Chronicles, Through The Zombie Glass, will be better. And yes, I am going to pick it up, don’t ask why.
