Angel Crawford has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gear—that is, until a murder-by-decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour. As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life she’s built, and she’s determined not to rest until she finds out who’s behind it.
Soon she’s neck-deep in lies, redneck intrigue, zombie hunters, and rot-sniffing cadaver dogs. It’s up to her to unravel the truth and snuff out the conspiracy before the existence of zombies makes headline news and she’s outed as a monster.
But Angel hasn’t quite escaped the pill-popping ghosts of her past—not with an illicit zombie pharmaceutical at her fingertips. Good thing she’s absolutely sure she can handle the drug’s unpredictable side effects and still take down the bad guys…or maybe she’s only one bad choice away from being dead meat—for real this time.
Angel knows a thing or two about kicking ass, but now the ass she needs to kick might be her own.
After the way the last book, How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back, I was nervous about Angel’s state. Before being turned into a Zombie, Angel had a drug problem. Well death doesn’t take away that monkey on the back. Now that Angel is team Zombie her addictive nature can affect more people than just her. Like the need to eat more braiiiins.
I enjoyed returning to the lighter, redneck side of Angel’s world over the heavier plot line we had in the last installment with Saberton. But don’t worry, Saberton is still around they just weren’t front and center this time.
Angel got outed to a couple of people in her everyday life and it will be interesting to see how that affects her life and those relationships. And it looks like zombies as a whole might be closer to coming out as well. I think Angel and the tribe have some very interesting times ahead of them. I’m sure we’ll see more of Saberton story line in the near future as things start coming to a head with the over all story arc of the series.
Allison McLemore has made the White Trash Zombie series an audio only series for me. She is perfect for voicing Angel and the rest of the cast. I can’t imagine anyone else bring Angel to life and I love Allison’s extra twangy spin on the redneck characters. The team of McLemore and Rowland is not to be missed by Urban Fantasy fans looking for a lovable heroine with a brain eating problem.
White Trash Zombie Gone Wild was a fun side trip on the Angel road trip through the redneck vs zombie story and I can’t wait to see what Rowland has in store for us next.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
