  • Book 2 of the White Rabbit Chronicles

    Zombies stalk the night.

    Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls.

    Sadly, they've got mine...

    Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

    After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

    She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her...from everyone. Now, with her best friend, Kat, at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.

    But the clock is ticking...and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.
    Don't miss FIRSTLIFE, book 1 of Gena Showalter's action-packed, romantic and exhilarating new series, the Everlife novels!


  • From the book

    More and more I'd been dreaming about the crash that killed my parents and younger sister. I relived the moments as our car flipped end over end. The sounds of metal crunching into pavement. The stillness when everything was over, and I was the only one awake...maybe the only one alive.

    I'd struggled to free myself from the seat belt, desperate to help little Emma. Her head had been twisted at such an odd angle. My mother's cheek had been slashed open like a Christmas ham, and my father's body had been thrown out of the car. Panic had made me stupid, and I'd hit my head on a sharp piece of metal. Darkness had swallowed me whole.

    But in my dreams, I watched my mother blink open her eyes. She was disoriented at first, moaning in pain and trying to make sense of the chaos around her.

    Unlike me, she had no problem with her seat belt, freeing herself and turning, her gaze landing on Emma. Tears began to rain down her cheeks.

    She looked at me and gasped, reaching out to place a trembling hand on my leg. A river of warmth seemed to rush through me, strengthening me.

    "Alice," she shouted, shaking me. "Wake up--"

    I jolted upright.

    Panting, my body dotted with perspiration, I scanned my surroundings. I saw walls of ivory and gold, painted in swirling patterns. An antique dresser. A furry white rug on the floor. A mahogany nightstand, with a Tiffany lamp perched next to a photo of my boyfriend, Cole.

    I was in my new bedroom, safe.


    My heart slammed against my ribs as though trying to burst free. I forced the dream to the back of my mind and moved to the edge of the bed to peer out the large bay window and find a sense of calm. Despite the gorgeousness of the view--a garden teeming with bright, lush flowers that somehow thrived in the cool October weather--my stomach twisted. Night was in full bloom, and so were the creepies.

    Fog that had brewed on the horizon for hours had finally spilled over, gliding closer and closer to my window. The moon was round and full, set ablaze with orange and red, as if the surface had been wounded and was bleeding.

    Anything was possible.

    Zombies were out tonight.

    My friends were out there, too, fighting the creatures without me. I hated myself for falling asleep at such a critical time. What if a slayer needed my help? Called me?

    Who was I kidding? No one would call, no matter how badly I was needed.

    I stood and paced the room, cursing the injuries that kept me tucked inside. So I'd been sliced from hip to hip a few weeks ago. So what? My stitches had been removed and the flesh was already scarring.

    Maybe I should just arm up and head out. I'd rather save someone I love and risk another life-threatening injury than do nothing and stay out of harm's way. But.I didn't know where the group had gone, and more than that, if I did manage to track them down, Cole would freak. He would be distracted.

    Distraction killed.

    Dang it. I would do as I'd been told and wait.

    Minutes stretched into hours as I continued to pace, a sense of unease growing sharper with every second that passed. Would everyone come back alive? We'd lost two slayers in the past month alone. None of us were prepared to lose another.

    The hinges on my door squeaked.

    Cole slipped inside the room and threw the lock, ensuring that no one would bust in on us. Relief plucked the claws right out of the unease, and I thrilled.

    He was here. He was okay.

    He was mine.

    His gaze landed on me, and I shivered, waiting for a vision...hoping for one.

    Since the day we'd met, we'd experienced a small...

    In this follow-up to Alice in Zombieland (2012), Ali Bell and her friends, fellow hunters of invisible spirit zombies, confront internal threats and endless relationship drama. Just when Ali's getting into a comfortable rhythm with her new zombie-fighting life, everything falls apart. Romantically, things are great with her boyfriend, Cole, right up until two out-of-state zombie slayers arrive. One is Cole's gorgeous ex, and the other, a handsome "he-slut," shares visions with Ali when he meets her eyes--just like the visions that kick-started Ali and Cole's romance. Before Ali can figure things out, Cole has already dumped her, leading to pages of misery for everyone involved. Meanwhile, Ali is bitten during a zombie hunt and has a strange reaction, even after being given the antidote. In the mirror, she sees a sinister zombie version of herself that wants to take over, forcing Ali to struggle against her zombie counterpart's hungers. Additional storylines feature relationship struggles for Ali's best friends and a spy among the slayers feeding information back to the evil corporation that wishes to use zombies. The slow-paced story is plagued by tension-stealing tropes--the paranormal-romance-sequel formula in which the hero abruptly dumps the heroine and the zombie-movie cliche in which a victim conceals an infection. However, Ali's female friendships are endearing. The unbalanced plot stretches too far, over too long. (Horror/paranormal romance. 14-17)

    Gr 9 Up-In this installment, Alice Bell continues to juggle her secret zombie-slayer existence with her everyday life, but, when attacked by zombies, she suffers injuries that threaten to change her very nature and she no longer trusts herself around those she loves. Things intensify and distrust runs rampant when a spy is discovered and zombie mutations alter their makeup. On top of this, Ali and Cole's relationship is at a standstill, and she must fight to save herself, her friends, and the world. Showalter spins an intricate plot full of suspense and intrigue. Ali's sense of self is tested as she is consumed by her own personal battle between dark and light. This action-packed story is driven by the well-developed and sometimes frustrating characters while the fast-paced plot keeps its audience constantly on edge. This captivating book will satisfy readers as they eagerly await the next installment.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
