Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice Bell who has lost so much—family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more—including her boyfriend, Cole—than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.
I can't get enough of this series!
This book was basically my travel companion all throughout my trip to NY/BEA, short of the bathroom, I took this one everywhere with me, and whenever I had time while waiting in line, I would pull it out to read, it killed me each time I had to put it down. It's a sequel that will suck you in with its action and well-developed characters, but what will REALLY keep you turning the pages, is the heat that Showalter has written and continues to write, between Ali and Cole.
But there's a bit of trouble in store for these two lovebirds, with the arrival of two new Zombie slayers from Cole's past, one who's set her sights on winning him back, while the other may have a future with Alice, that neither or she is fully comfortable with. Now I feel it's important to warn all Cole fans to tread lightly when diving into this read (and yes I realize the irony of this statement) because this man, while sexy as hell, will frustrate you to know end with his hot and cold behaviour.
Confused with Cole's odd behaviour, Ali is forced to deal with her own inner demons (literally), I guess it's a good thing she's got Gavin to comfort her in her hour of need. But something more sinister is brewing in their small town and there just may be a spy among their group of Demon Slayers, but who could it be?
Will Ali be able to overcome the darkness growing inside her and keep new girl, Veronica, from stealing her man? Read Through the Zombie Glass and find out! :)
I devoured this book and am on the edge of my seat waiting for book #3. I'm not sure I'm gonna make it! I would recommend this series to all Romance fans, but there's definitely enough Zombie-fighting action to satisfy those who enjoy a more adventurous read.
