       Alice's life is going as good as it could ever be, she has a beautiful new temporary home, her friends are as safe as she can hope for, and she has Cole. Really has him. Then, every wall of her life caves in. When she fights a new wave of zombies, she gets bitten and everything spirals even more out of control. When she looks into a mirror, she sees her. As a zombie. She now suffers from terrible urges to hurt, bite, infect, and kill her friends. She need support, she needs help, she needs to calm the urges in her mind.Only thing is, now nobody is willing to help her. Nobody else can see her zombie refection, nobody can hear the voice inside her mind. So what can she say to convince everybody that she will be okay, if only she had some help.If only she could figure out why this was happening to her.
       To make matters worse, two new slayers have come to town and joined the team. Gavin and Veronica. Cole is convinced that Alice is falling for Gavin, and that they are going to do some fooling around. While Alice knows that her heart belongs to Cole, Cole is having doubts. Leaving Alice almost completely alone.

       I like how the cover is doing a little play on the original Alice in Wonderland with the top hat and the bunny. I'm not to fond of the way the Alice's face looks on this. So fake. So plastic. I do however love the shattered mirror background, with all the other reflection.
       One more thing that I would like to mention is that when you open the book, you see the eye-catching black and yellow (Ha. Ha.) checkered pattern. I love it. You don't often see something that colorful outside of the cover and I love it.

       I don't want to say much about the characters and the relationships in this book, because it would ruin all the twists and turns, so if you really want to know what happens, your going to have to read it yourself. *Wink.* *Wink.*

        Fine. I'll say something about Gavin. He's a player. A cocky, cocky player. He does come on to Alice, but Alice won't have it. She doesn't want anybody but Cole, but still Gavin tries. He does it in his jokes and his smug remarks, but he can still be serious when he needs to be. I mean, really needs to be.

       I want to throw up all over this girls existence, but I guess then, I would have to throw up all over Gavin's existence too, but I don't really want to do that. At least Gavin can mange to be civil and nice.

       The only thing that I didn't like about this book is the fact that it can be a little repetitive. Mostly with Zombie Alice (Z.A) but sometimes she managed to spice it up a little.

Just Warning You
       This book has several references to having sex, how Alice is ready for Cole, and other things like that. But I assure you that nothing too serious happens.

       All in all, I really like this book. It's probably tied with the first one in this series. I am most defiantly going to continue with the series, as soon as the 3rd book comes out.
