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.

    I’ve had How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back on my Audible account since it’s release day. Why has it taken me so long to listen to it? I had ‘meh’ feelings over the last novel, White Trash Zombies Apocalypse. I knew I had to be in the right mood to listen and after watching The CW’s new show, iZombie, I was finally in the mood to be back in Angel’s world. What worked: Angel’s signature snark Great secondary characters More understanding about zombie life and what they can do Less Marcus Allison McLemore’s narration More gore (earn it a 4 star vs a 3.5 star rating) Angel’s continuing growth as a character and heroine What didn’t quite work: Slow start had me zoning out so I missed […]

First Impression: While White Trash Zombie  Apocalypse was not my favorite of the series it’s always fun listening to Angel. The Narration: Angel is on my auto-buy audio book list and it’s all due to Allison McLemore. I LOVE Allison’s narration of this series. It is one of the best southern accents I’ve heard. And being from the south I’m very peaky about the “fake” ones. I was surprised when I looked up Allison to find that her NOLA accent might be put on it’s not that far of a stretch for her because she is a native of my very home state, Arkansas.  I enjoy Allison’s narration so much that I plan to check out other books she narrates. What I liked: Even though Angel’s body […]

I love Angel’s character growth in this series so far and I hope she continues to become even more awesome in the next book. One thing some characters lack in other series is that they stay the same (boring!). She knows she was a looser before becoming a zombie but she is working hard to be a better…person….zombie. Yes she was a high school drop out with a shitty home life and a pill popper but unlike one of the heroines in another great urban fantasy series, she is not whiny about it. When we last left Angel she had found out some things about the zombie world but she was still pretty clueless to the bigger picture. In this sequel, she finds out more […]

 The cover art and title sucked me in but Angel keep me listening. The moment she said “But then again, I was about as far from touchy-feely as you could get. Unless you’re fucking me, don’t put your hands on me.” I knew we were soul mates. Angel is a great character, she is full of snark and dieing really was the best thing that happened to her. My Life as a White Trash Zombie is my 1st book to read where the main character is a zombie. And like many creatures, each author puts their own spin on them. Rowland’s version of zombies is a like a cross between a vampire and the movie Death Becomes Her, where Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn keep […]
