About the Book:

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 review is of my own choice.

If you are looking for a darker re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland, I’m sorry to disappoint but this is not the book. While this had hints of Alice in Wonderland; it isn’t Alice in Wonderland with Zombies. Sorry to disappoint.

As a zombie everything fan, this was a great and unique take on zombies. Not everyone can see these zombies but special people like Alice and Cole. They’re more like specter’s and the only way to defeat them is in spirit form. So in a way, Alice Bell did fall down the figurative rabbit hole.

This has some mushy romance in it between Ali and Cole. However I enjoyed the on and off refreshment Kat and Frosty. Their love for each other was totally relationship goals of laughter and being totally right for each other. I also loved Kat, she was a breath of fresh air in her quips. Reminded me a little of my own best friend and myself. That is what makes this book so great. Relatability.

I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a new and unique read. Stay tuned for the next book in the series.
