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

Gena Showalter is one of my favourite authors, and this is one of my favourite series. I’m sad it’s over. Really, really sad. I’m going to miss reading about everyone. I even put off reading it for a little while. This being the end of the trilogy, I was conflicted on how I was going to feel at the end, I didn't want to dislike it (which often tends to happen), but I am thankful to say that this story couldn't have been written any better. Endings are bittersweet for me. This ending was especially bittersweet.

Queen of the Zombie Hearts made me laugh and cry. My emotions were all over the place sometime and there were times when I had to go back and re-read because I was skimming past parts because the anticipation of what was going to happen next killed me. Not going to lie, there are some situations which happened and I'm not sure what to think of them. Showalter made the right decision and what happened had to happen, but it's sticking with me. Usually I can read a book then that's it, but Queen of Zombie Hearts is sticking in my head.

Queen of the Zombie Hearts concludes the White Rabbit Chronicles. The drama continues with Alice and the gang when Anima, the agency who control the dead, make another attack, and this time, they mean war....

The feels. I don’t know what else to say. I didn’t expect this story to go as it did, but I loved every second, but, at the end, I couldn’t help like feeling something was....missing? Uncompleted? I’m not sure if it’s because I love the series and didn’t want it to end or whatever, it just felt like there was a smidgen of something missing. Like there was something I wanted to know, to see how it turned out, and I didn’t really get to 'see' it, it was just explained. That being said, it was perfectly executed and Gena Showalter did an amazing job with this series.
