Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An intriguing mystery and a hilarious mix of the horrific and mundane aspects of zombie life open a promising new series from Rowland (Secrets of the Demon). Angel Crawford, a high school dropout on probation for possession of a stolen car, wakes up in a hospital with a confused memory of horrible injuries now mysteriously vanished and an anonymous benefactor setting her up with a job at the local morgue. Angel's problems with her alcoholic father, petty-criminal boyfriend Randy, handsome cop Marcus, and obnoxious co-worker Nick are overshadowed by her new appetite for the brains of the corpses she handles. Then Angel encounters a trio of odd deaths and starts tracking a serial killer with a habit of beheading his victims. Humor and gore are balanced by surprisingly touching moments as Angel tries to turn her (un)life around. (July)
Library Journal
Angel Crawford is the very essence of white trash—an unemployed, drug-addicted high school dropout and convicted felon who lives in a Louisiana swamp shack with her alcoholic father. But her life changes the day she wakes up in the hospital with dim memories of a car crash and an all-consuming hunger for—you guessed it!—brains. Awaiting her is a note instructing her to report to the morgue for her new job as a coroner's van driver along with a case of "energy drinks" (containing brains). Angel has been transformed into a zombie, and this is the beginning of her journey from white trash loser into self-sufficient modern woman. Rowland's delightful novel jumps genre lines with a little something for everyone—mystery, horror, humor, and even a smattering of romance. Not to be missed—all that's required is a high tolerance for gray matter. For true zombiephiles, of course, that's a no brainer.
