I just finished Through the Zombie Glass and AUGH IT WAS TOO AMAZING! I stayed up till three in the night just to finish it. I loved it! But I was wondering.... Is this series just a trilogy? I really hope not. :( And what are you going to do for the next books title?!?! You probably shouldn't answer that. ;)
