The Queen of Zombie Hearts: Review


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.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, 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.


The Queen of Zombie Hearts is kind of like the previous two books - without those annoying parts. Much better, because as much as I enjoy tension, it's a little too much in Through The Zombie Glass. This book definitely does the ending justice, because it's like a roller coaster ride towards the very end.

Everything seems fine after Ali battles her evil twin in Through The Zombie Glass. Everything starts out witty and humorous at first. But then boom! The chaos begins. I expected that, but what I didn't expect is the heartbreak induced by the death of the four characters. They are not as important as you know, Ali, Cole, you name it. But they made enough impression in the previous two books that I really like them. I know I'm warned, but I'm still surprised to find myself getting sad over these four deaths for a long time.

In some of the books, they either "start with a bang" or "end with a bang"(Or both). The rest is a set-up. In this book, it "starts with a bang". But throughout the set-up it's still intense as hell. It puts me in a situation of drastic ups and downs. It's as action-packed and hot as you can imagine. The book has evolved, I guess, and I love every single second of it.

The book ends in a perfect note, but with consequences. It's actually one of the most unexpected deaths I've ever read. And I cried. I really cried. I'm pretty sure it's not needless, but it's definitely cruel. How can you do this? How can you do this to the team? It's not fair! This totally get me, and I'm not sure I will recover in a short time. 

Nonetheless, the book is perfect and the loose ends are tied neatly. No more stretching, and no rushing off. It's one of the best endings I've ever read.

Rating: 9/10
