Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles)

Synopsis:

Zombies stalk the night.

Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls.

Sadly, they’ve got mine…

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend, Kat, at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole’s secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking…and if she fails at a single task, they’re all doomed.


The Phoenix’s Perspective

If you have read my review of the first book in the series, Alice in Zombieland, then you know that I really like the fact that this is not just a replica of Alice in Wonderland with zombies running around. I enjoyed it because Showalter looks at zombies from a different point of view. They aren’t just killing you, they are taking your life little by little through your soul.

As a result, I was so excited to jump right in. Although I enjoyed the book, I definitely had some rollercoaster moments with Through the Zombie Glass. I felt like there were two distinct storylines being told.

The first storyline (and the more interesting one) was that of Ali after a zombie bite. Everyone she has ever seen bitten seems to turn and lose themselves quickly. Now dealing with it firsthand, Ali can tell it’s an inside battle.  She is constantly fighting to make sure that her “zombie” half doesn’t take over.  It becomes like an inner instinct that torments her at every turn, even becoming visible to her through mirrors.

The second storyline is a more predictable one. It is the same one you see in almost every second book plot – the love triangle and/or disruption of some sort. Cole seems to slip away from her just as other hunters, who just happen to include an ex-girlfriend, seem to show up.  As if that weren’t enough on it’s own, the visions Ali and Cole have always shared seem to stop and start with another handsome hunter.

Putting aside the second book love twist, Through the Zombie Glass was a wonderful sequel to Alice in Zombieland. It pulls you in and, if you’re like me, you will end up finishing it in a couple of hours.
