It’s zombie versus zombie as the Saberton Corporation declares war against the Zombie Mafia, kidnapping several of their party. It falls to Angel to lead the remnants of her gang halfway across the country to claw their way through corporate intrigue, zombie drugs, and undead trafficking to rescue her friends - and expose the traitor responsible for their abduction.
Now that I’ve listened to How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back by Diana Rowland, I am up-to-date with this amazing urban fantasy and left patiently waiting with fans for the next release. This installment has us traveling when the Saberton Corporation kidnaps several of the Zombie Mafia members. Once again, we see growth in our beloved zombie girl Angel as she takes on New York. Action packed and chock full of humor it was a fun listen.
I adore Angel Crawford! The girl is crazy, badass and quite clever. Each installment we see growth as her confidence grows. New York terrified her, but she went out and attempted to save the day. Her inner commentary keeps me giggling and her one-line snark is the best.
“I am carrying death in my butt”
The Saberton thread offered some serious problems for our zombies while allowing Angela, and her zombie baby to grow closer. *snort* I still have questions regarding Saberton. Why is the corporation and particularly Nicole so intent on these particular zombies. Is something bigger funding this? I hope that with new developments we will begin to learn more. A thread has the zombie parasite behaving differently and it has me worried about what that means for Angel.
The interactions, friendships, and Angel’s on-again-off-again romance all added interest to How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back. Secondary characters are well developed and add to the tale. We have some really weird developments that are sure to make fans exclaim, “What is this f@ckery?”
“I heard a low growl and realized it was coming from my own throat. Fuck the fear and fuck the insecurities. I was worth fighting for. Every woman was worth fighting for. Didn’t matter if they were trash or addicts or rich or popular. Didn’t matter if they dressed like a homeless waif, or in tight skirts and heels, or in jeans and flannel. No one deserved to feel hopeless and worthless the way this goddamn asshole wanted me to feel and, I had no doubt, made other girls feel.”
While I know, fans adore reading this series, for me, the audio version is the only way to go. This series and the spectacular voice of Allison McLemore is the only way I will get my zombie on. However you chose to get your zombie on, it is important to read/listen to this series in order. Each book builds on the next as does Angel’s growth.
If you are sitting here saying, “This all sounds good Kim, but I don’t do Zombie books.” I urge you to reconsider. Throw away your preconceptions about zombie books and try the first novel/audio. I dare you!
