Zombies stalk the night.
Forget blood and brains.
These monsters hunger for human souls.
Sadly, they've got mine...

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong. After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things. She s never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her... from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole s secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking...and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.

See my review for book one:  Alice in Zombieland

Through the Zombie Glass picks up as Alice is recovering after the end of book one.  Her special abilities are growing and she is struggling to get a grip on them and what they mean.  We continue to learn more about the nature of the zombies, the evil corporation Anima, and the rest of the slayers.  But Cole and Alice's relationship is at risk - their visions have shifted and something very unexpected begins to happen.  There's nothing wrong with a little bit of romantic tension, but I really wanted to smack the crap out of both of them to knock some sense into them.

The slayers are noticing that the zombies are changing - they seem to be driven, but no one knows by what.  When Alice becomes infected in a new strange way she must figure out how to cure herself before she ends up killing everyone around her.  Book two was far more exciting and I think it made a big leap forward in the storyline.  We know so much more about pretty much everything - and it would seem that all the secrets have been confessed (finally), but now that they are so much closer together - they realize they have so much more at stake than they thought.
