Yep, I waited way too long to read this series. Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues was pretty much just as good as the first one!
Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia. Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.
I love the characters – especially Angel (the MC) and the zombie mythology just gets better and better! in Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues we got a little biology lesson about how zombies – in this world – have a parasite, not a virus. I swear this was such a cool application of science that I’m thinking it would be a fun way to teach kids the differences! It was easy to follow – and I SUCK at science – and really enriched my understanding of the world.
Angel’s trying so hard to get her life together and in Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues the obstacles are stacking up against her. Her past and the reputation it’s given her is making things super hard and my heart went out to her. But I loved her attitude and the way she’s not willing to give up on herself. I can tell I’m going to really love cheering for her over the course of the series.
There’s also a really good mystery – I think I’ve decided to consider this books as paranormal cozy mysteries because Angel is SO your amateur sleuth, getting into all sorts of trouble trying to solve murder mysteries. But she has to, because she’s in the thick of it.
And I’m so happy I have this series on audio! Allison McLemore is so good! I’ve said this already but this duo reminds me of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, it’s such a good fit. I did notice this time that some of the male voices were a bit too feminine for my liking, but seriously, so not a big deal.
A fun read that made me laugh my ass off. Usually books that are fun don’t get as high of a rating from me, because they don’t have the serious I need for a SERIOUSLY great book. But Angel’s struggle to put her life together makes this series and Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues the perfect blend of funny and serious for me!
