Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She’s a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she’s made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay alive”…
Diana Rowland has lived her entire life below the Mason-Dixon line, uses “y’all” for second-person-plural, and otherwise has no southern accent (in her opinion.) She attended college at Georgia Tech where she earned a BS in Applied Mathematics, and after graduation forgot everything about higher math as quickly as possible.

She has worked as a bartender, a blackjack dealer, a pit boss, a street cop, a detective, a computer forensics specialist, a crime scene investigator, and a morgue assistant, which means that she’s seen more than her share of what humans can do to each other and to themselves. She won the marksmanship award in her Police Academy class, has a black belt in Hapkido, has handled numerous dead bodies in various states of decomposition, and can’t rollerblade to save her life.

She presently lives in south Louisiana with her husband and her daughter where she is deeply grateful for the existence of air conditioning.

I saw this book being reviewed on another blog and the cover grabbed my attention right off the bat, so I had to purchase it! I have never read a book about Zombies before but have to say that this was a great one to start with!! I enjoyed the story line and felt that Rowland made the characters very real and relate-able!  The story line was smooth and kept the questions coming and the end was… well leaves you hungry for more! I look forward to reading the next book in the white trash series and the Kara Gillian series (all 5) as well. I recommend this book to others and would purchase it as a gift!

 4/5 Hearts: Really Great Read
