Overview

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse (White Trash Zombie Series #3) by Diana Rowland

Horror meets humorous urban fantasy in third book of the White Trash Zombie series • Winner of the 2012 Best Urban Fantasy Protagonist by the RT Awards

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.

At least for now.

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 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

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.
