As much as I enjoyed reading this book... I felt a little conflicted reading it. A Mad Zombie Party is told from the perspective of Frosty (Weird name, I know) and Camilla. If you don't remember Camilla, she's River's sister from the third Alice in Zombieland book who got her memory wiped after she betrayed the slayers and accidentally got a few people killed- including Kat, Frosty's girlfriend. Talk about awkward situations.
So anyway, the idea is basically Frosty is still mourning for Kat and Camilla's on her own. The two have to pair up- you know what? Why don't I just give the summery?
The enemy has risen from the grave. Together we slayers must stand, or one by one we will fall.
Ali Bell's crew of zombie slayers thought they'd won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular — the love of his life, Kat Parker.
On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond — Kat's spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla's betrayal caused Kat's death.
But when Anima rises from the grave stronger than ever, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes the line between hate and attraction is blurred... and the road to redemption may mean letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.
It'd been a while since I'd read that series and I forgot how fantastically awesome Ali is. Like seriously, she is an excellent protagonist. Strong. Witty. And incredibly sarcastic. I love her and I wish we got to see more of her in this book. Here's a quote from Ali to Frosty.
"If Chuck Noris gets bitten by a zombie, would he turn into a zombie or would the zombie turn into Chuck Norris?"
"She pretends to unwrap her fist and extends her middle finger." Like I said, I love Ali.
The main of the book is focused on Frosty and Camilla's relationship. How it changed from one of hate to one of friendship and caring for each other. You don't actually get to see a lot of the group of slayers until about half way through or so. But when you see them, it's amazing. You get to see Ali with Cole as well as Gavin and Jocelyn's relationship, which, may I add, is amazing and I loved to read about.
Kat shows up in the story, she was one of my favorite characters, so I really enjoyed reading about her.
"We're the only smart- I mean single guys left." This book cracked me up.
Anyway, since I read this book a while ago, I don't have much left to say. I'd give this story an 8/10 stars. I really enjoyed it, even if some relationships in it made me feel rather conflicted inside. I highly recommend it to those who have already finished the White Rabbit Trilogy.
!!!! I think we all know what I was feeling conflicted about. HOW COULD FROSTY NOT BELONG WITH KAT. I LOVED THIER RELATIONSHIP. But then again, I did enjoy Camilla and Frosty's relationship.. just not as much as Kat and Frosty's relationship... But I knew Kat had her eyes on River before she even mentioned it. And I kinda ship that. Could we get a novella about the two of them? Please?
The end go this book totally felt like a fluffy fan fiction. And I loved every second of it.
