Barnes and Noble EXCLUSIVE Never-before-seen deleted scenes inside!

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.

love the book, it can't be over!!!

I had a big decision to make when I received this book. Did I want to stay up all night devouring every page as I usually do with Gena Showalter’s books or did I want to savor this one and take my time reading it? I decided on the latter since this was the last book in the series. Let me tell you it took lots of discipline for me not to rush through the pages especially during certain scenes when I needed to know immediately if what I just read was right or if there was still some hope to cling to. Ah, HOPE you demon trickster! Ali has survived the death of her parents and little sister, the destruction of her home, kidnapping, torture, and a break up with the smoldering Cole Holland. Evil Zombie Ai is gone for good and finally she’s getting a break. Her and Cole are back together and ready to take the next step in their relationship! YES! Everything is on the bright side of life where unicorns, hot springs and rainbows exist until Anima Industries launches an all out war on the slayers. This time Anima isn’t just looking to get Alison back in their clutches they want to wipe out every single slayer for good and they are willing to do anything including putting innocents at risk.  Ali and the rest of the slayers have to pull together to fight for their lives. This time they’ll need to join another group of slayers to win and the costs will be high for everyone. Hearts will be broken, lives lost and shocking secrets revealed. I knew going into the book that there were going to be some punches to my gut but I was still unprepared for the heartbreak and death. Oh my, the lives lost. I can’t even get into it because I don’t want to spoil anything and I don’t want to cry AGAIN! I enjoyed the twists regarding the revelations of Alice’s past and the addition of River and his gang of slayers. More cute guys to drool over!  I was enchanted by the story. I was laughing one minute and crying the next. I have so much love for this series, every character, every scene, every bump, twist, heartbreak and bit of happiness. The ending was perfect and I was blubbering when a certain Witness appeared. Cue the boxes of Kleenex and sad music.   There are some characters I hope are revisited in future short stories or novellas. I would love to have some in-depth stories involving some of the other couples that came together in this book and please, PLEASE one day revisit our heartbroken boy (you know who I am talking about, won’t say names, spoilers). I really need to know that at some point he finds some peace, some calm, a way to smile and a way to move on happily. I don’t think I will feel completely at ease until I know he’s okay.  When it comes to creating characters that you would love to hang out with, characters you become so wrapped up with that you don’t ever want the series to end Gena Showalter is a writing genius. You hear that Gena? I’m declaring you a Genius! Also this Alabama native thanks you for making Birmingham the backdrop of such an amazing story.

I loved the whole series! I think this book did a great job of tying up all the loose ends of the series. It was so captivating, I tried to read it all in one sitting. It seemed like so much was going on and it was fast paced. This was the first series I read by this author and am going to be reading more. She makes the reader feel like they are right there with the characters going on these adventures!

Alice Bell thinks that the slayers have finally one after the slayers found out about the healing fire, but they were wrong. In a matter of weeks Anima had killed four of her fellow slayer and injured many others. While looking for others she sees the witness that is like looking in a mirror. This witness gives her abilities beyond anyones' thinking processes. When the slayers are surrounded by zombies, Ali does the unthinkable..... She makes them float and then explode, including her fellow zombie slayers. There is one problem though.... She is having a hard time getting a grasp on what's going on. There are traitors in the team of slayers and Ali only has one option to save her friends and hunky boyfriend, Cole..... Surrender herself to Anima. Secrets and lies will be revealed to Ali along the way and many will die. Cole and Ali are getting more together, too! Who will die? Will Anima succeed in what they have planned? This was a great book in all. I loved the romance and I did tear up at parts. This book is full of heartache.... and also HOPE!! This book was a great read with many twists and turns. It makes you want to help the slayers and be with them to rid the world of Anima. I was sitting on the edge of my chair while reading... Very suspenseful.! The only problem I had with this book was the fact that on Amazon, this was marked as teen read.... It is not. This is definitely Young Adult or older. Guardian discretion advised. There is vulgar language and sex-related themes. They do actually have sex, but it isn't very descriptive.

Catching Butterflies Ali Bell has gone through a ton in this series, and it didn't stop in Queen of Zombie Hearts. She's gotten so strong over time that she is a true force to be reckoned with which makes it even better that she's so often taken for granted since she looks like she stepped right out of a children's fairy tale book. This one starts off with an ambush that leads to a full-on war and the slayers are fighting two separate enemies (a horde of soul-eating zombies and the mad scientist group Anima). There are a lot of deaths which get harder with each book since I love every single character in this series. The Blood Soaked Road Text-speak gets annoying sometimes, but thankfully it's not used too much. Gooey Center Finally Cole and Ali have patched things up, but this one is in no way easy on their relationship. Ali finds out one of her relatives is responsible for Cole's mother's death. Much drama ensues. There are a couple of moments where Ali seems like that young girl idealizing love that you want to shake, but she corrects herself after a few chapters which is refreshing. We Won The concepts are unique, the story is very character-driven, and the plot just gets more intriguing. Each book is filled with more new characters to love, a ton of action and sass. Definitely recommended. Originally given 4 1/2 stars at JC's Book Haven.

OMG!!! I love this series more and more with every book. Alice and the slayers are ready for war. This isn't just another battle - only one will come out on top and both side will suffer along the way. This is really a non-stop action packed story that never calms down until it's all over. Zombies and Anima are back with a vengeance and some really imaginative tactics. Alice gets an unexpected blast from her past that really causes some problems - but may be the only way to solve the even bigger problems. Cole and Alice will have to face another landmine in their relationship that threatens to tear them apart. The snarky comments and attitudes are still present and they may be even bigger than they were before as we introduce a whole new slayer crew to stir up the existing dynamics. Warning: You just may cry - it's an emotional roller coaster that never stops. Also, this is a trilogy. Book three wraps up the story very well - but apparently others like myself just wanted more, so there is a fourth. But if you were looking forward to a good ending of the series - it does happen.

I read the entire series, it was amazing. I have to say this is a bittersweet ending. I so wish there was a fourth book coming, but sadly there is not :(

Not like the best series. That would be the Mortal Instruments. You should read the first one. Its name is The City of bones.

The Queen of Zombie Hearts is by far the best book in the White Rabbit Chronicles trilogy. I enjoyed all three books, but this one kept me hooked from page one. Showalter does not disappoint, and this book is equal parts romance, action, and emotion. Action packed and full of adventure, this novel will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the very last.  The cast of characters is amazing in this final installment. Ali has been a terrific and strong character since the first book, but she learns to embrace her emotions and herself more in this installment. She really grows as a character, and she makes some serious sacrifices. Ali is a great narrator and her perspective is fun to read from. Cole is as swoon-worthy as ever, and he also grows into a much more impressive character. I really like how he's willing to fight for Ali, no matter what. Nana is also a bright spot with her teen slang, and of course the phrase "douche-purse" made a few appearances, which added some humor to some serious and/or steamy situations. Kat is charming as usual, and the new characters that are introduced in this book are also well-developed and personable.  The plot is fast-paced and has more twists and turns that a rollercoaster. Some of the surprises I saw coming, but a lot of the things that happened actually shocked me. Showalter's writing is top-notch, and the world-building is well done. The romance between Ali and Cole is sweet with just the right amount of heat, and the friendships between characters is touching. I will admit that I cried toward the ending, and even though some parts are sad, I like that things aren't perfect for everyone. I hate convenient endings because life isn't always convenient or pretty. Things are complicated and messy, and the last chapters of this book really reflect that.  Overall, I'd recommend this book and series for people who are looking for something that is different from the normal zombie and/or teen paranormal romance fare. This trilogy has heart and a kick ass leading female, fantastic writing, and a captivating world. What more could a person ask for?
