Publisher's Summary

Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they've got mine...

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst?

A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her...from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking...and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.

Good but....

Good story the performer has a cold and her stuffed nose bugged the crap out of me the whole time I was listening. But again it's a good story.

annoying voice!

the narrator obviously had a cold/flu while recording this! it was so distracting having to listen to her stuffed up nose voice struggling through the entire book. was it really necessary to have the actress record it while she was clearly sick? it ruined the story.

2nd Book Rocked!!!

Amazing Narration by Natalie Gold

Through the Zombie Glass had me reeling for the very beginning. I honestly could not put it down! I was glued to my audiobook. I commend Gena Showalter for her ingenuity on the whole zombie phenomena. Alice is such an amazing female lead, she is brave, has the fighting capabilities of a superhero, is compassionate and loves wholeheartedly. Things get extremely rough for her in this book, and you would think that after brutally losing her family in the first book, things could not get much worse, but oh they sure do.

The suspense kicked up a huge notch in this book. The Ali-Cole relationship is sooo good *sighs/swoons/drools*. I love Cole! He has all the things you could expect from any Alpha Male. There was no doubt in my mind that they belong together, and there are scenes in this book that will just make your toes curl! So readers when things go downhill for Ali and Cole’s relationship, don’t give up hope! The best is yet to come I promise you!!

By the time I finished this book, I was left completely and totally satisfied with the plot and the romance! I absolutely loved this book!!! And I can’t wait to read more, I expect good things from the next book for sure!!

Great effort for 2nd book in series

I just finished this book earlier this evening.
I was a little sad knowing it was coming to an end.
My biggest complaint and I really hate to say this, was the narration. Not the actual narrator but it sounds like she had a cold and her nose was blocked and this was throughout the whole book?! I found this made it difficult for me to enjoy the story as much as I could have otherwise.

Otherwise the story itself was great. I would definitely recommend it!!

I just couldn't get into it at all

The premise of the story sounded good, but once I started reading it, there was really nothing about it that I liked. Many of the reviews here praise the main character (Alice), but I found her weak, predictable, and two-dimensional. The plot was built on pretty creative ideas, but the "infrastructure" of the story wasn't very strong, resulting in a story I just couldn't connect with.
Probably the worst part (since this was an audiobook) was that the narrator clearly had a bad cold throughout the entire recording, and her stuffy nose was very distracting.

Worth waiting for

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes anyone into YA

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character? Ali, Cat, Cole maybe Frosty, any/all of them, they are just so teenage it's amusing.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Ali shoots Dr K.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No it's what I expected but good in that none of the endings I had come up with as I was reading actually were the correct one.

Any additional comments?

I wish we had a genre of YA when I was a kid. This book was fun and painful in that adolescent way of unconfident youth.

the beginning

I am in love with this series and never ever want it to end.
Miss Bell is amazing she continuously gets knocked down and loses ones she loves but she continues to fight for what she believes in and those she loves at the cost of her own life at times

I did not know what to expect when I chose this book but I love zombies and who doesn't love Alice In Wonderland.

so my interest was piqued I will say it starts off slow but it's the first book we need the background and what not

I love how Zombies are represented in this book and the different ways of handling them nice and refreshing

Enjoying the series so far... FYI stuffed up Narrator

I’m extremely happy to say that books 1 & 2 aren’t cliffhangers like I originally assumed. I want to give Gena Showalter a big hug for choosing to finish each novel because I am sick and tired of the cliffhanger book market.

There’s plenty of relationship drama in this one, and there were times I wanted to punch Cole in the throat, but hey, that’s teen angst.

Overall, I liked the storyline. On the other hand, the narrator was sick throughout most of the book and it was irritating at times.
