She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.
At a Glance:

I've been staring at this book, for some time now, on my bookshelf. I really have to be in a certain mood to read about zombies. When I did finally pick this book up and read it, it wasn't anything like I thought it was going to be. First of all, it didn't really have anything to do with Alice in Wonderland at all. This book reminded me of Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton a bit.

Ali doesn't really know about her past, doesn't know what she can do. That is until she meets the gorgeous bad boy Cole Holland. When she realizes her destiny and what she needs to fight for, Ali is a machine. With intense drama, violent zombie slashing, visions of extreme lusty make-out scenes, and one big mystery to solve, Alice In Zombieland is my kind of book.

Cover:

The cover is pretty cool. The model is Ali, sweet and innocent looking.

Action:

There is tons of action. Of course we are talking about stabbing, decapitations and tearing apart zombies here. Yes, bloody gory goodness. 

Romance:

Ali and Cole has the typical good girl/bad boy scenario. The romance is good. I enjoyed it very much. It was a little redundant, but Cole is Ali's rescuer in more ways than one. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff.

Heroine:

Ali didn't know how to slay zombies in one chapter, but then after a couple of chapters, she was a professional zombie slayer. It was really weird. Maybe if I had Cole teaching me the ropes, I would be a fast learner as well.

Hero:

Cole Holland. He is totally kick-butt. Falling in love with Cole's tall, dark, mysterious character was easy.

Will I buy/keep it?
Yes! I've had an ARC forever, but I'm buying the hardcover for sure!
