Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up.

But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

Angel’s been through more than her share of crap, but this time she's in way over her head. She’ll need plenty of brainpower to fit all the pieces - and body parts - together in order to save herself, her town, and quite possibly the human race.

“No self-respecting zombie would be caught dead smoking”

This series! I love it so much! I’m actually kind of mad at myself because I didn’t wait longer to listen to White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, but dammit, it’s hard to resist these. I want to devour the audiobooks one right after another, but at the same time want to spread them out. It’s a freaking dilemma for sure.

Just like the first and second installment, White Trash Zombie Apocalypse kicked ass! The author knows how to pack a lot in without it being overwhelming or messy. The plot is smart and tight, which is something I appreciate so much. WTZA gives us a new story and mystery, while flawlessly progressing the overall series story arc. I often found myself leaning forward in anticipation for what would happen next, and then Angel would say or think something in the midst of the intensity that would cause me to burst out laughing. I love that!

I adore Angel! She is seriously one of my top favorite heroines. She’s such a good person … er … zombie despite having a not so great upbringing, but what I absolutely love is how she continues to grow and better herself. It’s weird to feel proud of a character, but I can’t help it. She’s clever and uses logic to think things through, and her snark is a beautiful thing. When people give her crap, her comebacks are pure gold!

This series is filled with a lot of wonderful characters beside Angel. Just as Angel evolves, so do the rest of them. I love the great dynamic she has established with so many of them, and what a fantastic support system they have become. There are some new characters introduced as well, and I’m looking forward to more of them.

I can’t recommend listening to the audiobook enough! If you’re a reluctant audio listener or think they aren’t for you, this is one of those series/narrators that will prove otherwise.

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, people … read it! Well, after you’ve read the previous books anyway. But I can say that after listening to this book, the series only gets better!

      • You are, by far, my favorite person to play with (on the blogosphere). I was hoping you noticed that. Okay, around 11pm at night, after a lengthy discussion with Kimba about blogs, life, commenting, blah, blah, blah, I saw she did a review on another WTZ book. I couldn’t take it. Her review mentioned, again, the narrator’s voice. I got to thinking, and waffling, and then she sent me a free audible (that onebook deal). I started last night… WTF have I been missing?!?!?!?!?!?!? Besides that fact that I love audios now and I WANT to find time to block the world out – Rowland is a flippin’ fantastic writer!!!!!

        chomp, chomp, chomp….

          Good! 😀 Ahh, thank goodness Kimba sent it to you. I didn’t even think of that. lol. Rowland seriously does kick ass at the whole writing thing.

  1. Yep, another recommendation for audio. I think this one is my third from various bloggers. I have been trying to find them at my library but I can’t even recommend them! What is up with that? Might have to figure out another way to listen to these on audio. I’ve only read the first book and can’t wait to see what it is like on audio.

    Alright, I think I need to check out this series. Definitely heard so many good things about this and that it’s zombies in a totally different light! (Also, I just binged watched iZombie, so I’m so in the mood for more zombies, haha).

    Great review, Christy!
