Blurb: 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 will start this off by saying that Angel Crawford is the most kick ass zombie I know!

Angel goes through many obstacles in this book.  She tries to fix her relationship with her dad, can’t figure out where she stands with Marcus, and deals with the bs of her past.  It’s like she can’t catch a break.  She does find out who is really there for her.  One of the things I admire about Angel is her determination.  She takes the first steps to getting her GED, and I’m proud of her for it.  Her only down fall is thinking she isn’t good enough to be in Marcus’s presence.  She suffers from low self-esteem, and it gets worse throughout the novel.  I wish she didn’t put her self down, but it’s hard to keep your head high when you’ve had a jacked up life. 

Most of the mend in this sequel suck! Uncle Pietro is a condescending jerk.  He thinks he can talk down to and belittle people.  He believes he can do whatever he wants because he’s rich and very well connected.  That crappy attitude may end up biting him in the butt!  Marcus needed to be slapped quite a few times, also.  He always writes off Angel’s concerns, and doesn’t stop Pietro from talking to her like she’s stupid.  There are a few more crappy guys, but I’ll let you read the book to find out why they suck.

Rowland has a way of making mundane redneck life entertaining.  Her characters are believable, and approachable.  The storyline flows nicely, and I was never bored while listening.  We also get a theory on why there are zombies.  It’s not at all simple.  There were so many scientific words in there, that I need to go back and listen. 

Based on how this book ends, White Trash Zombie Apocalypse is going to be awesome!  I can’t wait for it to come out!
