Review: Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter #FMBBooks

Title: Alice in Zombieland
Series: White Rabbit Chronicles #1
Author: Gena Showalter
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Format: Hardcover
Length: 404 pages
Purchase: Amazon

Book Description:


She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.


Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish.




Alice's family is different. She and her sister Emma are not allowed to go outside after dark. Her father acts strange and is very concerned. He patrols their house at night with a gun, looking out the windows.

It will take a life altering journey for Alice to understand why her dad acted the way he did. Alice will be moved to a new school and make new friends. She will make a new friend Kat and feel an instant connection to the school bad boy, Cole Holland.

Will her new friends be able to help her overcome and understand her past? Or is Alice losing her mind?

Ms. Showlater did a wonderful job of fleshing out her characters. Kat, Alice, and Cole are wonderfully written and it is easy to escape into their world. Cole is your
stereotypical bad boy. He's hot and you wish he was yours! Alice is a kick butt heroine and will make you laugh out loud with her funny quirks. This is not your typical zombie book. If you are expecting "The Walking Dead", you won't find it here. I had a hard time grasping the zombies. I wish Showlater had come up with another name for them, because when I think "zombies", I don't think Showalter's version. I would give the story 4 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed the characters and really want to see what happens with Ali, Cole, and Kat in the next book. Maybe by than, I will have learned to except Showalter's take on zombies.
