THROUGH THE ZOMBIE GLASS
Showalter definitely picks up the pace with her second in the White Rabbit Chronicles. With more action and angst, her latest hits every high note. Readers will love the fast-paced plot and the increased character development.
Allie Bell is just trying to get used to her new abilities and keep her relationship with fellow slayer Cole afloat. But as she heals from a zombie attack, her powers begin to change and darken. Her relationship with Cole is disintegrating faster than a zombie that’s been ashed, and Allie begins to fear that she is turning into what she hates most. As Allie starts to lose control of the darkness inside of her, she must rely on Cole, her fellow slayers — and most all of herself to win this battle.
