Gr 9 Up-In this installment, Alice Bell continues to juggle her secret zombie-slayer existence with her everyday life, but, when attacked by zombies, she suffers injuries that threaten to change her very nature and she no longer trusts herself around those she loves. Things intensify and distrust runs rampant when a spy is discovered and zombie mutations alter their makeup. On top of this, Ali and Cole's relationship is at a standstill, and she must fight to save herself, her friends, and the world. Showalter spins an intricate plot full of suspense and intrigue. Ali's sense of self is tested as she is consumed by her own personal battle between dark and light. This action-packed story is driven by the well-developed and sometimes frustrating characters while the fast-paced plot keeps its audience constantly on edge. This captivating book will satisfy readers as they eagerly await the next installment.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NYα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

After a promising fresh take on zombies in the first volume of the White Rabbit Chronicles (Alice in Zombieland, 2012), Showalter brings back zombie slayer Alice Bell, an orphan, and her instructor in killing the undead, Cole Holland. Fans will find this title less subtly layered than the first, lacking the wry humor and real pathos. Though chapter headings keep the Lewis Carroll references alive, the real story here is Ali’s desperate battle to keep her inner Zombie Alice from devouring everyone she loves. With its breathless make-out sessions and plenty of focus on Cole’s violet eyes and attractive torso, romance readers will eagerly await the next title. Grades 7-12. --Debbie Carton --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I absolutely loved Alice in Zombieland so I had to read this one. I actually read Through the Zombie Glass immediately after reading the first one and realized I somehow didn’t write a review up for it so before moving on to The Queen of Zombie Hearts, I gave this one a re-read.
Throughout the entire book, Ali is faced with complex problem after harrowing issue after heartbreak after doom and gloom. I loved every minute of it! There was so much happening, and it was all bad news for our heroine. Alice in Zombieland ended with her getting horribly injured, so she starts Through the Zombie Glass in a hospital bed with stitches. Things only grow worse for her from there. I really liked the direction the story went. It was definitely a unique spin.
A few new characters were introduced to stir up drama, but I enjoyed Gavin’s personality quite a bit. He’s just so unabashedly honest. Mackenzie and Trina became a couple of my favorite characters in this one and I couldn’t stand Mackenzie at all in the first book so I loved that character development. Kat, the Sass-Master, I continue to adore as well as Nana, Ali's adorable grandmother. I also enjoy that Emma keeps making appearances as a Witness.
There is a lot of action, a lot of inner struggle, and a lot of guessing what will happen. There were times that I looked down to see how far into the book I was because surely I was at the climax of the story, only to realize I still had quite a bit more to go.
Cole. Oh Cole. He exacerbated me quite a bit throughout this story with his hot-and-cold, incredibly mixed messages, and really bad decision making.
An Ex Here, an Ex There
It’s the whole 2nd book, introduce-the-relationship-drama thing going on in Through the Zombie Glass. There are literally exes everywhere. Veronica is brought in from Georgia who happens to be Cole’s ex. Mackenzie is still around who is also Cole’s ex as well as a lot of break ups and make ups going on throughout. The romance in this one is all over the map.
I’m still loving this series. Through the Zombie Glass was a wild and fun ride through hardship after hardship. I really felt for Ali, but she kept going and giving her best no matter what. The characters are fantastic, and their dialogue is fun to read. There is tons of action and interesting concepts introduced. Absolutely recommended.
