Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right--the zombie mafia.
Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower--and maybe a brain smoothie as well--in order to get through it without falling apart.
Becoming a zombie has to be the best thing to ever happen to Angel Crawford. She is working on getting her GED, she is staying on the straight and narrow. She has to eat brains to survive, but that has become a minor thing compared to the benefits. But things don’t stay easy and Angel finds herself involved in what could possibly be a zombie war zone.
Marcus is not being as helpful as he could be, which sort of pissed me off. His decisions and actions just didn’t put off the boyfriend vibe. His family or “faction” of zombies come first and he wants Angel to comply and just accept them. Angel is NOT the type of character to bend and do things other people’s way. She knows what happened and is not going to be told to leave it alone. Especially when people are coming after HER!
Angel is a character that you just can’t help to love. She is making such progress in her life and has an attitude that has you in stitches. Angel takes on the bad guys with clear thought and really puts the story together. The town may not think much of Angel, but she is going to prove them all to be total idiots, and it is SO satisfying!
I found Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues to be a complete riot. Angel is at the center of a great mystery which is pretty much left up to her to solve, and it left you wondering who was really the bad guy in it all. The storyline was left open ended so we know we are not going to see the last of the bad guys, but the ending was satisfying. Urban Fantasy readers who love some humor mixed in with their mystery have got to try this series. I loved it!
