A Mad Zombie Party By: Gena Showalter Review



So this was me when I heard that Gena Showalter was writing another Alice in Zombieland book...



...and well this was me after reading the book. 



Okay, that's not really how I was. Not 100% anyway. I did REALLY like it.

A Mad Zombie Party was enjoyable, but I didn't love it like I did the other three books in the series. For one thing the beginning of the book was very hard for me to get in to. Now I've been sick off and on for a week or so, but that wasn't the problem. No, the problem was that the beginning of the book was dull for me and I was still hating Camilla from shit  *ish* that went down in the last book. Now I'm supposed to like her and root for her?? 



Once I got over that (I DID!) the book did get better, but it just seemed to be missing the magic the other three books had. The plot was okay, but as far as the "big bad" it really seemed to be more talking then things actually happening. I never really believed anyone was in grave danger or anything. The zombies really took a backseat in this book too. I found A Mad Zombie Party to be more about tying up lose ends for Frosty romantically and to have a nice ending (it was wrapped up perfectly with a matching bow) all around for the whole group. I have to admit I do like having a more concrete ending. 



Of course Gena Showalter's romance writing is amazing in this book (as always) and I was surprised that by the end I was rooting for the romance! BY THE WAY I recommend this series by Gena Showalter if you like her romance stuff in the Alice in Zombieland series or Paranormal Romance novels: The Darkest Night <----- Seriously this series is amazing too!! 




Overall I enjoyed the fourth Alice in Zombieland book. A Mad Zombie Party isn't QUITE as good as the other three novels, but it was still pretty darn good. I recommend A Mad Zombie Party for .... fans of the other books in the series!! Also, if you haven't read any of this series I recommend you go pick up the first book NOW. Or YESTERDAY. :P
