it was amazing
Read from August 19 to September 12, 2012

Let me start off by saying that I am not normally a fan of zombie books. I have had no interest in any zombie related books, movies or TV shows. However, for Gena Showalter, I was willing to try anything. She always blows me away with her amazing stories and characters and I new I would just have to give this one a try. As usual Gena, you have blown me away!

Alice is a strong protagonist through the whole book but certainly gains confidence throughout the story. She's thrown into a life of zombies that she never believed existed. Like most of my favorite heroines, she's got that snarky attitude that I love. With the help of Cole, the leader of the zombie slayers, Alice must navigate her way through this new world. What can say about Cole? Yum! I am used to reading Gena Showalter's adult series, Lords of the Underworld, and wondered how she would do in this new YA series. Of course Gena managed to make Cole hot, without anything too steamy going on. Everyone at school is afraid of Cole. He's all tough muscle with a take no prisoners attitude (and yes, there's more than one meaning to that statement as you'll soon see). I loved learning Cole's background and finding out why he is the way he is. There's always a softer side to these tough guys. He's also so loyal and devoted to his crew and Alice that you just have to overlook his bad side. There's definitely something brewing between these two and it's not just romance. I'm anxious to get some more answers about this, hopefully in the second book. The zombies are not your typical zombies. Oh they're dead, but that's about all that's the same. Unfortunately I can't really say anything more than that without giving anything away but Gena has definitely created a unique take on the zombies and how they behave. This story has me thoroughly hooked! I can't wait for the next book.

Gena Showalter has created a unique, captivating world of zombies, slayers and more that will have you flying through this book. It's full of action, mystery, romance, a little humor as well as some real life drama that everyone can related to. Gena is a master at making me stay up way too late reading. This was certainly one I didn't want to put down. "Alice in Zombieland" is definitely a must read!
