Blurb: Angel Crawford is a loser

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she’s a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who’s been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn’t have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there’s a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it’s an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.

Before she knows it she’s dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she’s hungriest!

Angel’s going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn’t, she’s dead meat.


Seriously friggin’ funny!  I love the characters Rowland has created!

Angel is as redneck as can be.  She’s also not afraid to tell it how it is.  This is girl is someone i could definitely hang out with.

I never thought a zombie book could make me laugh as hard as I did.  I had to quit listening to it at work because I’d burst into laughter.  It was awesome, but I don’t think the boss thought so.

I’m pretty sure I’d freak the hell out if I had a sudden craving for brains.  Angel handles it pretty well.  This new life as a zombie seems to ground her, and get rid of the unnecessary baggage of her old life. 

Rowland keeps you guessing throughout the book.  I kept trying to figure out who turned Angel into a zombie.  It’s not until the end that you begin piecing things together.  You also don’t find out who the serial killer is until the end.  The minute you do, you will be shocked!

The narrator did a fabulous job with the voices, both male and female.  The changes in voice were fluid and unbelievable.  She makes me want to listen to more books she has done.

If you’ve never thought about giving zombies a shot, definitely start with this one. You won’t want to put it down. Angel is witty, funny, and makes the whole book enjoyable.
