Horror meets humorous urban fantasy in the sixth book in the White Trash Zombie series.

Winner of the 2012 Best Urban Fantasy Protagonist by the RT Awards.

Angel Crawford has finally pulled herself together (literally!) after her disastrous dismemberment on Mardi Gras. She's putting the pieces of her life back in order and is ready to tackle whatever the future holds.

Too bad the future is a nasty bitch. There's a new kind of zombie in town: mindless shamblers, infectious and ravenous.

With the threat of a full-blown shambler pandemic looming, and a loved one stricken, Angel and the "real" zombies scramble to find a cure. Yet when Angel uncovers the true reason the plague is spreading so quickly, she adds "no-holds-barred revenge" to her to-do list. Angel is busting her ass dealing with shambling hordes, zombie gators, government jerks, and way too many mosquitos, but this white trash chick ain't giving up.

Good thing, since the fate of the world is resting on her undead shoulders.

White Trash Zombie Unchained by Diana Rowland is the sixth novel in a series called White Trash Zombie.  Angel Crawford, a recently regrown zombie, is finally returning to her normal life from her traumatic injuries. Then she learns that a new zombie type has emerged. These zombies are not like Angel or other zombies that she knows which are generally normal except for needing brains for food. These new zombies are mindless shamblers that are not only infectious but also ravenous, looking for any food source. Angel begins working with the other real zombies and humans that know about zombies to find a cure as quickly as possible. She’s not a scientist, but she contributes as much as she can with her knowledge from the morgue and her own experiences as well as working as an investigator and fighting when necessary. When one of Angel’s loved ones becomes a shambler, she becomes even more desperate and determined to find a cure before the shambler hoard can take over.

This is a fun novel. The concept of generally normal zombies is unique and intriguing and then pitting the regular zombies with a classic version of zombies makes a great story. I really enjoyed all the scientific background given to foundation of zombies, how the shamblers are different and finding the cure. It’s just a little bit of scientific explanation, but it makes the story richer. Angel is a great character, determined and flawed. There are a lot of characters in the novel and this can be hard to follow if you haven’t read the previous novels. And so, I think knowing the background and who everyone is from the previous novels would really make reading this novel richer. But I found it to work as a standalone as well. The story itself is fast paced and action packed with the right amount of downtime to learn about what is happening. The interactions between the characters are engaging and Angel is sassy and funny.

Allison McLemore’s narration is excellent. She manages the accents perfectly and characterizes each of the characters well. Her pacing is also great. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes fast-paced, zombie, urban fantasy stories with a strong female protagonist.
