Title: Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues
Author: Diana Rowland
Series: White Trash Zombie
Number in Series: Book Two
Published: July 1, 2012
Funny and oddly inspirational. Great for iZombie fans.
Angel is trying to juggle many things. A new boyfriend, studying for her GED, her job, working with her dad to improve themselves, not to mention still adjusting to life as a zombie. Add to that a body stealing a gunman and a zombie uncle that gives off serious zombie mob boss vibes, and Angel can always claim that life is never boring.
I’ve really been enjoying this series. Still reminds me a lot of iZombie, but since I love iZombie, that works for me. It’s funny and oddly inspirational at times. With Angel trying to better herself as well as trying to bring her dad with her, that’s just inspirational in a way. The story has taken on a crazy new turn and I’m super curious to see how the story will play out from here.
The character development is the best part of this book. In book one she is just this broken shell of a person, who has completely stopped trying to be anything other than who others perceived her to be. She has a crappy boyfriend who treats her like crap, but she doesn’t kick him to the curb till much later because she doesn’t feel she deserves any better. In this book, she already won’t back down and is starting to call people out for underestimating her. Including Marcus.
If there is anything I feel this story could use to keep it more engaging, I would say we need to work on the romantic aspect of it. I’m just not personally feeling the chemistry between Angel and Marcus. I think there is potential there, but we haven’t really been allowed to get to know Marcus at all. So I’m really hoping we get to know him now in the next book.
I would recommend this book to those who like humanized zombies. Think iZombie. If you like this show/graphic novel, then I think you will enjoy this series. Definitely 18+. There is violence and gore and a ton of swear. F-bombs everywhere.
