Our favorite zombie Angel Crawford has come a long way from her days as a pain-pill-addicted high school dropout with a felony record. After a year highlighted by murder, kidnapping, and the loss of her home, all she wants to do is kick back, relax, and maybe even think about college.

But when key members of the “Zombie Mafia” go missing, she has no choice but to get involved. Angel is certain Saberton Corporation is behind the disappearances, yet she can’t shake the sense that a far deeper conspiracy is at work. With the small band of friends she can trust, Angel strikes out to track down the missing zombies.

But when unexpected danger threatens to destroy her, all the brains and bravado in the world may not be enough to keep her from going to pieces.

Holy moly, how I love this series! How The White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back didn’t disappoint. It had everything I love about the series and was completely engaging.

Angel goes to the big city! Yep, our girl ends up in New York, and her reactions to certain things (the subway) are quite entertaining. It’s not all fun and games though. Some serious shit is going down with the Saberton Corporation, and loyalties are tested. It’s exciting with plenty of action. We also makes some pretty important discoveries about how the zombie parasite works and what is possible. Very interesting, indeed.

Angel is absolutely one of my favorite heroines. She’s constantly evolving and growing as a person, bettering herself. Angel is just easy to love. Best of all, the abundance of snark. This chick is funny! I always get a kick out of people underestimating her. Luckily, though, she has an amazing group of people around her that helps build her up. I have to say, I’m a bit worried about what’s instore for Angel in the next installment. Stay strong, Angel!

The cast of secondary characters kick ass. There are a lot of them, but each one brings a lot to the story. I love all the different dynamics Angel has with them, and how their relationships evolve too. Seeing how far Angel and her dad have come makes me smile. Seriously, these characters rock!

I’ve continued to listen to the audiobooks in this series, and can’t imagine it any other way. Allison McLemore does a phenomenal job narrating and truly brings the characters to life, so I highly suggest going this route.

Four books in, and the series is still going strong. I can’t wait to listen to the next installment!

  1. I think this is the one zombie series that will really work for me Christy! Mostly because of Angel and her snark:) Normally zombies terrify me and I want nothing to do with their stories, but all the humor in this one makes it much more palatable. I need to give the first book a try!

      You will love this series, Jenny. It isn’t like the zombies you’re used to. And you’ll definitely fall for Angel.

  2. I think you can just copy your reviews for this series at this point, girl. I mean, do you really have to write anything new for an awesome series that has the most appropriately perfect narrator? Nah… Allison rocks! Oh, and of course Diana, too, DUH!!

    Great review, seriously…

  3. This is just another series that I’ve always wanted to check out. It sounds like a ton of fun! And btw, I just finished reading Hounded by Kevin Hearne thanks to you! Loved it! I can’t wait to read the next one. 😀

      Omg, I’m so glad you’re reading The Iron Druid series! I LOVE Atticus. The audio for that series is fan-freaking-tastic! Luke does an AMAZING job. I hope you read this one soon too.

  4. I am glad to hear this series continues to be good. I haven’t read this series yet, but the first book is on my to-read list. And I have read the first 5 or so books in her other series, which I enjoyed so far. It’s nice you leanr more about how the zombie parasite works in this one. Angel and the other side characters sound great and I can’t wait to meet them! Great review!

  5. I’ve been dying to read this series! (And no, I really didn’t mean to make a pun lol.) I don’t generally listen to audiobooks, but I heard a sample for the first book in this series, and I think it might be a good book to try audiobooks again with. It’s good to know the series is still going strong in the fourth book though. I’ll have to get around to this soon!
