Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles, #2)

Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles #2)

Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice Bell who has lost so much—family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more—including her boyfriend, Cole—than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.


I crawled to Justin’s side and felt for a pulse.  The beat thumped so swiftly I couldn’t keep count.  “He needs the antidote.”
            “I’ll give him mine,” Cole said, bending down as he withdrew a syringe from his back pocket.
“Justin,” I said, patting his cheek.  “We’re here.  We’ll take care of you.”
His eyelids split apart.  Rivers of red ran through his irises.  I gasped.  Surely he wasn’t…Couldn’t…Not that quickly.
His head whipped toward me—and he sank his teeth into my wrist.
He quickly released me to curl into a ball and vomit, but the damage was done.  I screamed.  It was like electric paddles had been strapped to my chest, jump-starting a second heart, making it beat for the first time, but never in rhythm with the other one.
Suddenly there were two Alis, and both were in pain.
One hate it.  One liked it. 
That one was hungry.  So hungry.
Cole loomed over me, his features tortured with concern.  His mouth was moving, but I couldn’t hear him.  My attention was caught on the pulse at the base of his neck.  Thump, thump.  Thump, thump. 
Radiant light seeped through his pores.  A light that didn’t hurt my gaze.  A light that drew me, every part of me.  I licked my lips.  If I could get past his skin, I could reach the light.  I could touch it.  Taste it.
Consume it.
Desperate, I grabbed him by the shoulders and tugged him down, baring my teeth.

Don't forget that there is a giveaway with a lot of very exciting prizes! You can find the giveaway and the first post, a guest post by J.A. Huss, HERE!
