I am honestly in awe of Gena Showalters two books in this adventurous series. This tale is nothing like Alice In Wonderland but it is definitely one to read. It's a tale of a girl named Alice Bell who's family tragically die in a car accident on the night of Ali's birthday, she is filled with regret and guilt. She is a very curious person and starts to question her Dad's whole life's existence and protecting them from the 'zombies and monsters of the dark.' Ali finds an unexpected friend in Hospital- Kat, they instantly click and have been as close as sisters. Ali moves schools and lives with her Nan and Pops. Ali doesn't have a clue in which her life is directing her until she meets bad boy Cole; it was love at first sight *literally.* What Ali doesn't know is that Cole and his friends are really fighting something that she could never begin to imagine.
