Angel Crawford has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gear--that is, until a murder-by-decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour. As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life she's built, and she's determined not to rest until she finds out who's behind it.

Soon she's neck-deep i

3.5 stars - Spoilers

-Mostly enjoyed the story, the beginning was a bit of a struggle to get through because of Angel's boring drug problems, but once that was sorted out it was a fun read with Angel having to investigate a murder and put out various zombie fires.

-Kind of hated Angel in the first third of the book, she was so weak, stupid, and self-pitying. Her going back to her addictive ways and lying and being slimy put me off her character. Thankfully, it didn't take too long for her to sort

This is a better turn for the series, getting away from corporate or spy shit and giving us an old-style drug problem to work through. :)

I knew it was coming from the end of the previous book, but to see all the horrible issues of the soldier potion for zombies turn her into a self-serving self-destructive zombie who had Just started getting her life together was a very pleasant move. It was going too easy for Angel. The personal agency stuff needed a big kick in the ass, and I'm so happy it hap

I had a lot of fun with this one! I had a bit of a rough time with parts of the previous book in the series so I was really happy to have such a good time with this one. This is the fifth book in the series and I do think that this is a series that needs to be read in order. A lot of things that happened in previous books played a big role in this story. I listed to this book for hours at a time and even found myself cleaning things

This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho

After the way the last book, How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back, I was nervous about Angel's state. Before being turned into a Zombie, Angel had a drug problem. Well death doesn't take away that monkey on the back. Now that Angel is team Zombie her addictive nature can affect more people than just her. Like the need to eat more braiiiins.

I enjoyed returning to the lighter, redneck side of Angel's world over the heavier plot line we

Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.

Angel Crawford is at it again in WHITE TRASH ZOMBIE GONE WILD taking on multiple plot threads, dodging cadaver dogs, and battling inner demons. The story was a clever spin on Zombiefest-gone-bad, and things are starting to come together for the heroine on the work front. I was happy that Saberton was put on the back burner for an installment, and that Marcus is now firmly in the “friend zone”. Still, I did take issue with Angel’s regression, and the ending wasn’t ideal.

At the end of last book I was really worried about Angel as she found a new way to get high now as a zombie. And we are dealing with that a big part of this book.
But I admit I really enjoy that we are not getting the “prefect” character with this series and especially this book. Angel not only has to deal with her new addiction but also gets outed. So she has plenty of stuff thrown at her in this book.
She gains some unlikely and new allies in this book.

I started this book and pretty much read it in marathon fashion with very few breaks, it was great, I wanted to see where things were going and was not terribly disappointed.

So with THAT out of the way, I can usually decide if a book was 4 Stars or 5 Stars with only a little trouble sometimes but this one really has kept me waffling back and forth for most of today. The story was great, I was engrossed pretty much all the time BUT it seemed like our petite protagonist for this series got a heapi

I don't think I can adequately convey just how much I love this series and what a good time I have with it! White Trash Zombie Gone Wild is the 5th book and still just as strong as its predecessors. Love, love, love it!

I had a bad feeling about what Angel would face in this book, and those feelings were correct. Things take a wrong turn when a festival comes to town and a murder pulls Angel into the danger. That's just the tip of the iceberg! There are multiple plot threads and Angel juggles

We are back from New York, and Angel has a problem thanks to a zombie pharmaceutical. She is sneaking some of this drug without the others knowing and its causing some problems. Like increasing her, need for BRAIIIIINS! However, none of this stops her from uncovering a conspiracy to out zombies.

Rowland’s descriptions particularly the action scenes had me sitting motionless as the story unraveled in three-D. Punches of humor that only Angel could deliver helped keep the darker moments light and i

Angel reminds me of Stacia Kane's Chess more and more, not just because they're both addicts, but because she's such a realistically flawed character, she screws up often and big time, and you don't see that in urban fantasy books very often. It's hard to find a heroine in urban fantasy who isn't too perfect, doesn't learn everything too fast, have all the best ideas and have everyone following her into battle two days after she first discovers she's magical or inherited some power.

Oh thank the lord. After the somewhat strange disaster of overly complicated plots and ton-fuck of new characters in the last book, White Trash Zombie has returned to a somewhat more simple- but much more engaging story lines in White Trash Zombie Gone Wild.

I know it's going to sound strange, but I'm kind of glad we got to see Angel fall off the wagon. After all, she's been an addict for years. She's also admitted a couple of times that if she hadn't become a zombie than she'd have never had the

Everyone's favorite zombie, Angel returns for another helping of brains. In this instalment she finds herself hooked on a zombie mod....a drug that gives zombies superpowers for short bursts. Unfortunately the mod chews up the brains and she needs more and more just to maintain.

When footage surfaces of zombies on the rampage, footage that includes Angel, it's left up to her to find the flash drive that has the movie, solve a murder and make sure zombies remain in the shadows.

I should check the review of book 4, but I remember being disappointed (with book 3 too?) I just remember this feeling of maybe calling it quits. But here Angel is back on top and being awesome!

Zombiefest is coming to town! Time to party.

She has her hands full as always. With school, with her job at the coroner's office, with her other job at the secret lab for zombies (where she got addicted to a new drug). That last being bad. Oh and there is a murder to solve. And are zombies about to get ex

4.5 Out of 5 "Angelkins" Stars

~MY THOUGHTS~


This is my favorite book of the series since the first one. A lot more action and less slow-boring time. It was a little tedious in the beginning when she was abusing the V-12 (not sure if that is correct spelling…{{{because of audio}}}. It quickly moves from that into some action complete with some angel-style ass-kicking.

Alison McLemore brings Angel and her southern twang to life. I totally recommend audio for this series…even if you've been reading

My attention wandered a lot but White Trash Zombie Gone Wild was a solid story. It picked up some loose threads and earlier story points and wrapped them up while setting up new ones. It was good to see Angel's addiction addressed and what her parasite can and cannot do. One of the strengths of this series is that the characters grow and change. They're flawed, not perfect, and Rowland doesn't keep them static but allows them to develop. The story itself was a little overly complicated and could ...more

Enjoyed this book. I don't know how the title and cover fit with the story. Maybe symbolism because nothing like this really happened. The story was good. Unexpected semi-loveish connection. I hope it goes somewhere good.

Why can't every book I read be like this book?

Flawed but likable main character.
An interesting and well developed world.
Great side characters that have their own personalities.
Engaging story that kept me reading.

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com.

The end of the How The White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back, Angel was showing symptoms of her old self. As a matter of a fact, the final scene, she is hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Randy. Randy is not a good influence on Angel. I was not liking where this was going. I did reserve my judgement to see where this storyline was going before I started throwing too much of a fit. Let’s just say that Angel had a tough

I got less than ten percent into this book before I was mad as all hell. After everything Angel had been through in New York, risking everything to get half the dang team back, and Marcus, Pierce and that other security hound Rachel, just cut her out like she's nothing. It got my hackles up. Then, she's abusing V12... Man, it made me uncomfortable, until it made sense.

Once again, Diana Rowland managed to suck me in and get me all involved. My only complaint... the lack of some of the secondary

This one had a couple of spots there were a little slow, otherwise this would have been a 5 star for me. I really do hate the cover. I don't know who is coming up with these ridiculous comical visuals of the series. Since sadly, I do base my decisions on covers a lot of the time, had I not started this series and picked up the book, no way would I have read it.

However, since I have picked up the series I have to say this one is in the top 5 favorites series I've read so far. Well written, excit

These books are just pure entertainment, but they do have underlying social issues dealt with in a "zombie" way...and that won't really make sense to you unless you've read any of these books.
This book has really shifted the direction of the story, in more ways than one. Both for Angel as an individual and for the entire zombie group.
My only complaint is this book went a little too long and lost some momentum for me along the way. But I am definitely in for the next installment to see how thin

It's funny how Angel doesn't see herself as others see her. After becoming a zombie it seemed like she became a better person, one who didn't need drugs or booze. It was interesting how Angel's past life and habits came back to haunt her. I thought she did a great job of managing things when it seemed like she was left along to deal with things. I liked the allies that Angel found, I think it will help her in the future. The ending gave me hope that Angel will have no problem going forward with ...more

The Zombie Fest is under way. Kristi Cherish has been spotted out of state. Things are hectic in the lab. With so much going on, the Tribe's people are spread thin. That leaves Angel to be their eyes and ears at the Saberton sponsored festival. At the zombie documentary screening, Angel realizes that all of the footage is not fake. Are they about to be outed? This series is fabulous!! I was so bummed when this book ended, because now I have to wait for the next one!

I typically hate zombies but this series puts humor in the mix and makes it thoroughly enjoyable. I totally love Angel but man can she put her foot in it...every darn time. The girl just can't catch a break. Looking forward to book 6.
