Overview

Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up.

But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

Angel’s been through more than her share of crap, but this time she’s in way over her head. She’ll need plenty of brainpower to fit all the pieces—and body parts—together in order to save herself, her town, and quite possibly the human race.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Like any other self-respecting monster, zombies hate bad publicity. Louisiana working-class zombie Angel Crawford has good reason to maintain a low profile: She needs her job at the local morgue to keep her supplied with the brain-meet she needs to prevent a lapse into an undead killing spree. Thus, when a film crew, complete with cast, arrives to make a zombie film, she finds herself in a precarious position, especially since some real undead have shown up for a grisly tasting. Like its two predecessors, the third installment of Diane Rowland's Zombie Apocalypse series packs action, humor, and personality. A mass-market paperback and NOOK Book original.

Publishers Weekly
Angel Crawford, a working-class Louisiana zombie whose job as a morgue tech keeps her supplied with the brains that prevent her from decaying into a homicidal monster, is caught up in undead politics when she’s almost run over on the set of—ironically—a zombie movie. Tying up loose ends from Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues and setting the stage for the next book, Angel’s third outing paddles into the tepid waters of middle-book syndrome, but there’s enough zombie action and humor to keep series fans invested. Angel remains a likable underdog, striving to improve her lot as well as living the life of an ethical zombie: the reader never loses sight of the fact that in life she was dealt a rough hand—poverty, dyslexia, a neglectful mother—and no amount of zombie-mojo will make that go away entirely. Agent: Matt Bialer, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (July)
RT Book Reviews
"If you missed My Life as a White Trash Zombie, Rowland’s truly wonderful series starter about new zombie Angel Crawford, be sure to rectify that mistake and also pick up the next chapter about this amazingly engaging heroine. Rowland has come up with a perfect blend of creepy, scary, yet emotionally touching adventures for her gutsy and endearing heroine. Angel’s evolution from depressed loser to young woman learning to trust her instincts is entertainment at its best. Do not miss out on this exceptional series!"
Vampirebookclub.net
“Equally gross and heartwarming, disgusting and riveting, My Life as a White Trash Zombie is a clever read. If you like to see a flawed heroine pull herself back up, and can handle visceral imagery, it’s a brilliant book. Fans of Carolyn Crane, Stacia Kane and Allison Pang will dig on this one. Big time.”
Library Journal
A lot has happened since drug-addicted dropout Angel Crawford became a zombie (My Life as a White Trash Zombie; Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues) and started cleaning up her life, and this new title might not be the easiest place for newcomers to jump in. Angel still works at the morgue where she obtains a steady supply of the brains that keep her sane and undetected by normals, but things get a little meta when a film company decides to produce a zombie movie in her small Louisiana town. Something is rotten on the set as the zombie hunters Angel has crossed in the past seem to be up to some new tricks. VERDICT More urban fantasy than horror, this dark but very funny series nonetheless packs in a decent amount of gore for those who are more used to zombies as villains instead of as appealing reformed punkette heroines.

    Why yes I did just buy it for the cover.

    Not really. I have been following Angels story for quite sometime and seeing her evolve into a more confident heroic zombie has been a real treat.
    This book alone is rather odd in that it does not feel so much as a fully encompassed story line, it feels more like an interlude.
    The first one had action and introduction and mystery galore while we got to know Angel and her new condition and the second was a further introduction to the other forces at work in her world as well as the unseen enemies she has and the moral ambiguity of what catering to zombies can create in a person. Not to mention she suffered alot in book two but grew a heck of a lot as a zombie and person.
    This one introduces more characters and more players but really there is no mystery and mostly there is just vehicles for change.
    It is still a good addition to the stories so far but be aware that at the end there is no big reveal or mystery solved, mostly it will just be a reclassification of some characters (including Angel) and a few little upheavals so enjoy and anxiously anticipate the next book.

    Angel's back with style. Loved this book and everything about it

    Angel's back with style. Loved this book and everything about it. As much as I LOVE all the covers this series, for me this was
    the one that actually captured a composite of the attitude and events of the book. 

    In this installment, Angel faces a new set of challenges and has to dig deeper than ever before into all aspects of her
    life: career, home, social life, friends, family, education, romance. She had some dark trials in the last book when Dr. Kristi
    Charish captured her for vile zombie experimentation, but this one feels darker overall, both with the events that directly
    affect Angel and in her expanding world view. Wow. We get a glimpse at the bigger picture of the zombie world and plenty
    of set-up for the potential 'bad guys' of the next book. (There are always bad guys in Angel's world, right?)  :)

    Most of the characters from previous books are back along with a few new ones. We see Dr. Charish again, as well as
    Philip, the 'volunteer' Angel was forced to zombify by Charish and interesting dynamics emerge. Angel's relationship with
    Marcus takes on more depth as aspects are tested and explored, and ya just gotta love the interaction and development
    with her dad.

    Darrell continues to prove to be a stand up guy. Nick and Allen get a little time in the spotlight and each demonstrates
    that they are multi-layered characters, not cardboard cutouts waiting around to be on stage with Angel. Ed ties up loose
    ends, Dr. Leblanc has her back, and even Kang makes an appearance.

    Then there’s Pietro. I’m not sure whether to hug him or kick him to the curb. No doubt he’ll be around in next book to
    influence that decision.

    New characters arrive on the scene. Brian Archer, Heather, Kyle, Dr. Ariston Nikas, Jane Pennington, each nicely written
    and memorable.  One super minor character (Jacques) caught my interest and curiosity and I hope I’ll find out more of his story later. 

    Angel develops personally as well as in her zombie-hood. She’s come a long way from her drug addict “loser” origin, and
    it shows. Is she cultured and refined? Hell no! But she growing in all the ways that count. She’s determined to pass the GED
    and even has a fantasy of community college someday.  It seems this book lays the groundwork for future books, so there
    are some issues that go unresolved, but overall the story is satisfying. Not quite sure how I feel about part of the last scene in the
    book, but I'm sure more will open up on that in future. 

    This book is well-written and offers corporate intrigue, humor, a touch of romance, bullets, biting, baseball bats, natural disaster,
    violent retaliation, feeding frenzy, zombie labs, murder, mayhem, and yes, braaaaaiiiiiins. What’s not to love?!  Can't wait for the next one.

    Angel Crawford is back and is as funny/terrifying as usual. It is nice to see her beginning to mature and finally prepare for her future. Is it just me that sees the characer as Rooney Mara in my head?
    Her world is growing and her involvement with the "Zombie Mafia" is a nice twist
