Angel Crawford has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gear—that is, until a murder-by-decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour. As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life she’s built, and she’s determined not to rest until she finds out who’s behind it. Soon she’s neck-deep in lies, redneck intrigue, zombie hunters, and rot-sniffing cadaver dogs. It’s up to her to unravel the truth and snuff out the conspiracy before the existence of zombies makes headline news and she’s outed as a monster. But Angel hasn’t quite escaped the pill-popping ghosts of her past—not with an illicit zombie pharmaceutical at her fingertips. Good thing she’s absolutely sure she can handle the drug’s unpredictable side effects and still take down the bad guys…or maybe she’s only one bad choice away from being dead meat—for real this time. Angel knows a thing or two about kicking ass, but now the ass she needs to kick might be her own

smartfunny snarky SUSPENSE ZOMBIE

White Trash Zombie Gone Wild by Diana Rowland is the fifth book in the White Trash Zombie series.  Hilarious, Intense, and filled with both crazy and heartfelt moments we once again witness Angel Crawford lose her shit and save the day. I absolutely love listening to this series. Allison McLemore narrates and just brings Angel and the other characters to life.

We are back from New York, and Angel has a problem thanks to a zombie pharmaceutical. She is sneaking some of this drug without the others knowing and its causing some problems. Like increasing her, need for BRAIIIIINS!  However, none of this stops her from uncovering a conspiracy to out zombies.

Rowland’s descriptions particularly the action scenes had me sitting motionless as the story unraveled in three-D. Punches of humor that only Angel could deliver helped keep the darker moments light and it was one heck of a ride.

Angel is a character you cannot help but root for. She is kick-ass, a little unpolished, and smart as a whip. When she opens her mouth, you never know what will pop out. If she cares about you then you are one of the lucky ones because she will and does move heaven and earth to protect you.

Conspiracies, zombie hunters, exposure and danger continue in White Trash Zombie Gone Wild.  Some interesting things happen at the morgue where Angela works some very interesting things. Saberton Industries are still in the picture but they took a backseat in this edition.

Allison McLemore is the voice of Angel and the crew. I could not imagine the series without her. If you are looking for a unique Urban Fantasy, I cannot recommend the audio version of White Trash Zombies enough.

Now before you say, Kim this looks hilarious and action-packed but I do not do zombies. Rowland has created zombies that live among us, look like us but just have to snack on brains occasionally to avoid decomposing.  It is like me without coffee.  I would totally decompose without it! COFFEE! I NEED MORE COFFFFFEEEEE!!!!

White Trash Zombie Gone Wild delivered all the action, humor and snark I have come to love in this series.

    Despite my issue with Audiobooks and zombies (although the ones in here are different from what I have in mind), the more I read about this series the more I get curious . . . It’s seriously great to know you’re having such a fantastic time with each instalment 🙂

    Angel definitely sounds like my kind of girl Kim, you know I love a character with a smart mouth and some serious snark:) Probably best that I start at the beginning though, I haven’t read any of the books in this series yet!

    Thank you for turning me on to this AWESOME series!! YES, I’m a non-zombie reader and I even love this audiobook!!! No one should be allowed to read these – ONLY LISTEN to Allison’s narration because she IS Angel!!!

    I love the covers but I sort of wish they were subtler to gain more readers but at the same time, Angel does have a mouth on her 😉

    I’m glad you loved this one!!

    It’s on the list and driving me nuts each time I read your reviews. Haha! Just a couple more series to finish up and get off the shelf and I’m on to Diana’s zombie heroine. I can’t believe I’m saying that because zombies are generally not my thing. 🙂 Nice review, Kimberly!

    I love this series. It is one of my favorite on audio. I started off reading it when it first came out, but once I started reading it, I was hooked and never read it again, only listen. I have loved Angel from the beginning. Like you said, you just can’t help but root for her. I was worried with the ending of the previous book with her hanging out with her deadbeat ex-boyfriend. I’m glad she came to her senses in this book.

    “It’s like me without coffee.” <– That's funny! I've always wanted to give this series a try, because I like Rowland's Kara Gilliand series, but I've stayed away because zombies. Thanks for noting that these zombies aren't your average zombies. I'm glad you're continuing to enjoy the series, Kimberly!
