White Trash Zombie Unchained Audiobook
I love this series to pieces. I started reading it in paper right after the first book was released (I was already a Diana Rowland fan from her Kara Gillian demon series). I mean, how can I turn away from a series when the first book is called, My Life as a White Trash Zombie, with what is probably the best covers in the Urban Fantasy genre. The later, I tried the audiobooks and Allison McLemore really brings this story the next level. She is the perfect voice for Angel Crawford and brings the story alive with all the voices in this series.
This story picks up not that long after the end of White Trash Zombie Gone Wild. Angel is recovering from her horrible issue from the previous story. They have her on a new version of meds that aren’t addictive, which is really good for Angel and her addictive personality. Angel has really come a long way. She has grown from the drug addict, high school dropout, going nowhere to a college student with a respectable job at the county coroner’s office (even if everyone doesn’t understand it). She is even making herself a VIP in the zombie tribe. Helping out in the lab and someone who has the ear of the current leader (even if that leader is only a figurehead).
So, in this story, people are turning into “shamblers”. People are all of a sudden becoming what everything thinks of when the hear the word “zombie”. These shamblers are turning all of a sudden and it seems to be contagious. The medical community isn’t quite sure how it is being transmitted. Could be fluids, mosquitoes, no one knows. I’m sure you could see how that could cause a panic. It is also hard for the tribe. They don’t want the population of humans to realize that zombies exist, so this new kind of zombie is not good for them.
We learn more about zombie physiology. We get to spend some time with some secondary characters from previous books (in many different ways). I love how Angel is able to make new friends, too. And as I said earlier, seeing Angel grow more and more is great too. Oh, I can’t forget the alligators from the cover. Biggie and Tupac were great. Wait until you read it and see how they fit into the story.
I wouldn’t recommend starting with this book. I think you really need to start with book one to see where Angel came from. See how far she’s come. Plus, we learn more and more about zombies in each book. Plus, they are fun stories. Angel always seems to find herself in some interesting shenanigans.
White Trash Zombie Unchained Audiobook Narration
What to say about Allison McLemore that I haven’t already said in a previous review?? Her narrations are perfect for this series. She really has the perfect voice for Angel Crawford. She does several different Southern accents for the different characters. She’s also able to lose the accent for characters from out of state. She brings this already fun story to life. I can’t imagine going back to just reading them.
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.
