EVEN WHITE TRASH ZOMBIES GET THE BLUES
If you missed My Life as a White Trash Zombie, Rowland’s truly wonderful series starter about new zombie Angel Crawford, be sure to rectify that mistake and also pick up the next chapter about this amazingly engaging heroine. Rowland has come up with a perfect blend of creepy, scary, yet emotionally touching adventures for her gutsy and endearing heroine. Angel’s evolution from depressed loser to young woman learning to trust her instincts is entertainment at its best. Do not miss out on this exceptional series!
Becoming a zombie and surviving an attack by a serial killer has given Angel a new lease on life (or unlife). Working as a coroner’s van driver allows her access to the brains she needs to survive and also provides new friends. Angel is also building a romantic relationship with her fellow zombie and mentor, Deputy Marcus Ivanov. Things take a seriously wrong turn when a body is stolen from Angel at gunpoint. Angel knew there was something weird about that body; it had a skull fracture and she couldn’t smell the brains. When her story is questioned and she is pilloried in the press, Angel becomes determined to find out what is really going on — but she never expected anything like this! (DAW, Jul., 320 pp., $7.99)
