Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter


This series is awesome. Like, seriously awesome. I don't know how to put it more elegantly, because it's not a elegant series. It's hard-core, fun, fluffy, badass awesomeness.

Without too many overt spoilers, Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter picks up almost immediately after the last book ended. Ali is still recovering from the zombie attack that could have killed her, but something different begins to happen. She begins to feel hungry. And not for a late-night snack. She begins to crave human souls, just like a zombie does. She looks in the mirror, and her reflect begins to smile back at her. It's messing with her brain to say the least, and she isn't sure who, if anyone, she can tell.

However, not only is she beginning to have zombie-like tendencies, Cole is pulling away from her and he discovers that there is a spy among the slayers, feeding information back to Anima. Now, their entire group could be compromised. Who would betray them? But in the end, does any of this matter when Ali can feel the zombie inside of her getting stronger and stronger? Because soon, it's gonna want to come out, and Ali may die with it.

I read Alice in Zombieland a couple months after it came out, so I had forgotten some details and had almost zero expectation for this book. Honestly, I thought it might have been a book that should have stayed a standalone. Needless to say, I don't feel that way anymore. This book blew that notion out of the water--and I can't wait to start reading the next one, basically as soon as I finish typing this review.

Through the Zombie Glass was an action-packed adventure. And yeah, there were parts that maybe I didn't entirely enjoy--like the initial break-up with Ali and Cole at the beginning of the novel--but 97% of it I loved. It was everything you'd expect of a YA paranormal romance; it had sexiness, fun, drama and a swoon-worthy boy. I don't know if I could say this enough but, I love Cole Holland. He's a soulful hard-ass who knows how to kick ass if need be. That's the book boyfriend dream, right?

This was an incredible second book in what is guaranteed to be a satisfying trilogy.
