It's a badass title for a badass series, maybe a little too badass. Alice in Zombieland is a trilogy I started reading back in year 7, and I was probably too young, but anyway, the third book came out this year and I finally got around to reading it.
So I got introduced to this series by a friend who's obsessed with the old tales such as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland. She obviously thought this looked cool, and I did too. The series turned out to be way too much for her, but for some reason I didn't stop reading.
Now, you'd think that it would be some kind of zombie play on Alice in Wonderland, and I think it was meant to be, but I honestly couldn't see it. To me it was one nice little slightly sci fi trilogy about zombies and teenagers.
Basically, Alice Bell lives with her loving family, including her very paranoid father who's scared of "monsters". What she doesn't know is that these "monsters" are real, and in one moment, they take away everyone she loves. So Ali moves in with her grandparents and everything just happens from there. At her school are a crew of bad boys who kill zombies by night, and if she wants to survive and avenge her family, she has to trust their leader, Cole Holland, and become a bit of a bad girl herself. Her best friend, Kat, is awesome though.
Yeah... it all sounds really dramatic and zombie-ish. But the story is actually pretty good, and heated, and intense, and kinda inappropriate.
If you hadn't guessed already, Cole is the love interest and I actually don't find him attractive, although I can bypass that. I mean, he has violet eyes and a nipple piercing. All of that just turns me waaay off. But you know, while reading you can kinda imagine it all doesn't exist. He's also really good with Ali. Especially in the second book.
I honestly can't remember what happened in Through the Zombie Glass, but I know I loved the book and couldn't stop reading. I think it had something to do with Ali becoming a zombie and weird visions but who knows. I know there was some kind of love triangle or drama going on with Cole and Ali, and I just really love reading about when the guy gets jealous. Even if it's really aggressive like Cole is.
Speaking of aggressive, that's exactly how I found the third book, Queen of Zombie Hearts. The girls were way too egotistical, and the whole relationship thing was so possessive. I think I heard the words "she's mine" accompanied by some form of growling too much. The story was good though, with the whole zombie war and family drama, and the betrayals and mystery. I can't really go into detail with anything because the whole series is one big tangled web that you should untangle for yourself.
This series is also really dirty. Not fifty shades of grey dirty but still pretty dirty. Just.. yeah...
Well, I thought I'd share an interesting series with you. It's pretty creative and well-written so why not?
You know, I'm looking like a zombie now with bandages around my wrist because I may have broken it. No wait, that's a mummy.
