Please welcome Alice!

Hey Ali – thanks for stopping by again at the Bookworms! It’s been a year you’ve been here and I’m excited to chat with you again.

Ali: Glad to be back.

You have been through so much Ali, looking back now, what advice would you give your younger self?

Ali: Life has balls.   Grab hold of ‘em and twist.

And considering what you went through, you also changed a lot, how would you describe yourself now in comparison to before? You can definitely kick ass now J

Ali: I’m stronger, that’s for sure. I like to think I’m braver, smarter, more resiliant. And with all that I’ve lost, I’ve learned to value what I have, while I have it.

If you could go back in time, would you have wished not to know about Zombie’s and Zombie Slayers and life a normal live?

Ali: You know, I’ve thought about that question a lot. I’ve wondered, I’ve pondered. I’ve ran senerios through my head, but I’ve always come up with the same answer: no. Sure, horrible things have happened. I’ve lost more than I ever thought I could give. But I’ve also saved lives. What can compete with that?

Should we talk about Cole for a minute?

Ali: Um…no!

Haha! Oh YES!  – If you’d have to compose a Tweet about Cole what would it be?

Ali: Fine. I’ll play. The Tweet would say: I’m home. Alone. Can you think of anything we need to be doing…together?

Cole is a stubborn but it feels like you finally found together after “Through The Zombie Glass”, will your love be again tested in “Queen of Zombie Hearts”?

Ali: Of course! I think love is tested every day, because every day there are new choices to make. (I can’t help it if I always make the right ones, and Cole doesn’t. I’m pretty awesome. You should probably Tweet that.)

We heard already that something horrible will happen in “Queen of Zombie Hearts”, but can you also tell us something beautiful about to happen? Maybe a small scene or teaser, that will melt our hearts?

Ali: Well, I certainly enjoyed hearing all the reasons Cole loves me. (Who knew he had a question fetish?)

“Ali.” His voice, so husky and deep, was temptation and silk, stroking over me. “Did I ever tell you all the reasons I love you?”

“No.” I licked my lips and shook my head, gathering the courage to face him. His eyes were heavy-lidded, smoldering.

He liked the tattoo. 
“Tell me now,” I commanded softly.

“I’ll tell you the top ten. One,” he said and kissed my forehead. “You are brutally honest. It’s such a rare and precious trait.”

Major points for my man: he’d led with personality rather than appearance.

“Two.” He kissed my eye. “You have the perfect sense of humor…perfect for me. It’s a little warped, and a lot twisted, and you can make me laugh when no one else can.”

I almost melted. Almost. I had to hear the rest. “Go on or I’ll hurt you.” Had I sounded as breathless to him as I had to myself?

He chuckled. “Three.” He kissed my other eye, gentle, so gentle. “You’re smart. I want to see your brain naked.”

Ha!

“Four. You are freaking hot.”

“Obviously.” And okay, yeah, he got points for that, too.

Maybe because I so very rarely felt hot. Or maybe because I so desperately wanted another kiss. A harder one. On my lips. With tongue and teeth. And roaming hands. Or maybe because I wanted him to want all of me.

“Five.” He kissed my cheek, and I moaned. More. “You are unbelievably kind.” He kissed my other cheek. “Six. You love with your whole heart, nothing held back.”

“Come on. Kiss me for real.” Did he want me to beg? Because I would…after I made him beg a little, too.

“Seven.” He pressed his lips against one side of my jaw, skipping my lips, dang him. “You are such a good fighter, I could stand back and watch you do all the hard work, and I wouldn’t feel like a wuss. I’d feel like a genius.”

“I’ll believe that when I see it.”

“Eight.” He kissed his way to the other side of my jaw. “The way you sometimes look at me… It’s as if I’m the sweetest dessert in the bakery and you are desperate for a bite.”

Yes, yes. A big, delicious bite. “At one time,” I said, the huskiness of my tone surprising me. I wrapped my arms around his neck. “That look of mine scared you.” With good reason. I’d been loaded with zombie toxin and had literally wanted to eat him. Well, not me but my zombie twin. Z.A.

“Nine,” he went on and nibbled on my ear. “You’re like the world’s most perfect drug. One hundred percent pure, guaranteed to addict after the first taste. I can’t imagine my life without you in it—don’t want to.”

My skin tingled, and my blood flashed white-hot. “Cole,” I said on another moan. I tangled my hands in his hair, angled his head, trying to take over. “Please. Stop talking, and start acting.”

“Ten,” he said and finally—blessedly—pressed his lips against mine. Only it was soft, far too soft. “You would die for me, the same way I would die for you.”

“Yes, yes, I would.” I waited for hard.

He didn’t give it to me. His face hovered directly over mine as he…deliberated his next move?

Happy to help with that. “Take off your shirt,” I commanded, already pulling at the material. “Now.”

 

*Danny Melts*

Is there anything you look forward to when everything is finally over?

Ali: I can think of a few things…Being with Cole. Hanging with Kat. Sleeping—not even sure I remember what that’s like. Goofing with Gavin. Laughing with Emma. Teaching Nana actual slang. In a word: living.  

Thank you so much Ali for being here, and I wanted to tell you again how much I admire you!

The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter

Queen of Zombiehearts_S


Book III in the White Rabbit Chronicles 

I have a plan.

We’ll either destroy them for good, or they’ll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

Alice ‘Ali’ Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She’s ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers; until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It’s then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters; and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies and she isn’t the girl she thought she was. She’s connected to the woman responsible for killing and turning Cole’s mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.

  1. I think her and Celeana from Throne of Glass would make a pretty awesome duo. They’re both street-savying and sarcastic. I’d read that book. 😉

  2. Oooh. I think Mac from the FEVER series could kick some serious zombie ass! But she’s pretty busy defending her world.

    Wow this is a GOOD teaser! I’m a little worried about more conflict between Ali and Cole after the last book – was hoping for more working together – but I’m desperately excited to read this story and find out how it all ends! Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. Shannon Quenzer

    I would like to see Ali and Cat from the Night Huntress series together. Pretty much because their names just sound cool!

  4. Jessica Mobbs

    I think Tabby from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter books would be great! Love the q & a and teaser!!!

  5. Tiffany Rarrick

    I think Evie Greene form Kresley Cole’s series The Arcana Chronicles! Those two would be the BEST kick ass team ever!

  6. erinf1

    I think Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs series and Kate Daniels from Ilona Andrews! I would pay to see that!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Nichole Herrold

    I think Buffy would make a good partner for Ali because they are willing to die for a good cause and they both are funny and clever.

  8. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it
    can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

  9. Tamara Soleymani

    Violet Eden from the Violet Eden Chapters. She is just as kick ass as Ali and she also has a man who is a controlling leader of fighters that learns to defer to his girl at times.

  10. sarah k

    I think the team she has fits her great,I could see her teaming up with a couple of the ones mentioned above, and also with Dru from Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow, Sabriel or Lirael from the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix

  11. Megan

    I think that Meliara from Crown Duel (by Sherwood Smith) would make a great partner for Ali, she has the same stubborn fire to fight for those she loves and what she believes in.

  12. […] The Queen of Zombie Hearts (The White Rabbit Chronicles #3) by Gena Showalter Publisher: Harlequin Teen Release date: September 30th 2014 Alice “Ali” Bell thinks the worst is behind her.
