I saw the cover and then read the synopsis and knew that I would probably love this book. Who wants to read something like Grey's Anatomy meets something like The Vampire Diaries mixed with any other paranormal creature you can think of. So why was I dissapointed?
Who the heck knows.
That's my problem, I have no freaking clue as to why I wasn't so excited about this book. Sad part? I was a good book. I guess at times things just seemed to go so quickly and I felt confused at times. The overall story line made sense, but once things started coming together, it just felt like so much information from so many different angles that I kinda got lost.
I liked Edie, a nurse who worked on Y4 in the basement of County Hospital that looked after paranormals. She was offered that position in order to help her drug addict brother who seemed to care more about the drugs, getting high, or wasted then caring about anyone but himself. So Edie took this job in which the trade off would be that her brother always stayed clean no matter how many drugs he took. The pay off for her? Oh you know, killing a vampire, dragons and trying to hunt for a vampire girl named Anna who might be the only one to save her life.
Meanwhile, she sleeps with shapeshifters and zombies. Pretty normal right? I will admit that the beginning had me hooked. Then it started to make me sleepy, and then luckily the last 25 percent kicked the book back up again. So I feel there was alot of filler stuff that I ended up kinda just skimming through.
In the end, I did like the book. I probably won't read it again, but I know I will continue with the series. My hopes? I would like to see Edie with Asher. Yeah, I know. I'm always picking the "other guy"
I have this soft spot for zombies and in a weird way, they excite me. The thought of zombies in a "wonderland" setting really excitedOh Zombies <3

Alice lost her whole family. All of them. How freaking sad is that? Not only did she lose them all, but she had to witness the accident herself, and be the only one who survived. So when she finds out why her dad acted the way he did for all those years, she wanted to stop it.
Then comes Cole. Sigh. Their first initial introduction kinda made me roll my eyes. Cause we all make out right off the bat right? I won't lie, it took me awhile to get used to Cole, but he did eventually grow on me. Okay, so he really isn't that bad.
It was a really good story though and I enjoyed it. It had its surprises and drama in all the right places. I look forward to what's going to happen in the second installment ;)...more
