Waiting On Wednesday (70)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter

This book is to be released September 30th, 2014. It is the third book in the White Rabbit Chronicles series.

I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

Alice 'Ali' Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers; until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters; and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing and turning Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.

My favorite story to be retold in fiction is Alice in Wonderland. My favorite type of creature in stories is normally zombies (despite my fear of them making it impossible for me to watch The Walking Dead). So these books are right up my alley. The covers are also extremely gorgeous if you can't already tell by looking at it. I don't know if this series is meant to be a trilogy but I really hope this isn't the last book Gena Showalter puts out in it. She is a fabulous writer and I look forward to digging into this series.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
