Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter


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….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish

My thoughts 

Zombie books have never really been my thing, But Gena has certainly scripted this tale to keep the reader intrigued and there interest piqued within the pages of this story.

A quick fun ya read steadily paced for the reader, zombies like no other zombies out there; they certainly didn’t freak me out the way some do.. ** shivers**

The action was steady, beginning from within the first few chapters and an intriguing and fun story for all those who like a spin on a fairy tale.

Give me a sexy bad boy any time ** Cole ** will certainly appeal to all the readers out there who love them a bad boy! ** grins ** He certainly was my cuppa tea !

The characters all secondary and main are likeable and engaging, the action is consistent and the romance is sizzling... It's not too gory so if you’re like me and don’t like alot of gore and stuff then I'm sure this will appeal to you.

A few laughs out loud moments, and a little bit of everything to give the story a well-rounded feel. I personally enjoyed all Gena's adult books more, but this Ya certainly is a great start to the series.

Thank you to Harlequin Australia for this book in exchange for my honest review
