Donna of the Dead Blog Tour

Today on my blog I have the Donna of the Dead Blog Tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.

Donna Pierce might hear voices, but that doesn’t mean she’s crazy. Probably.

The voices do serve their purpose, though—whenever Donna hears them, she knows she’s in danger. So when they start yelling at the top of their proverbial lungs, it’s no surprise she and her best friend, Deke, end up narrowly escaping a zombie horde. Alone without their families, they take refuge at their high school with the super-helpful nerds, the bossy head cheerleader, and—best of all?—Lance, hottie extraordinaire and Donna’s long-time crush. When Lance is around, it’s easy to forget about the moaning zombies, her dad’s plight to reach them, and how weird Deke is suddenly acting toward her.

But as the teens’ numbers dwindle and their escape plans fall apart, Donna has to listen to the secrets those voices in her head have been hiding. It seems not all the zombies are shuffling idiots, and the half-undead aren’t really down with kids like Donna… 

Donna has been hearing voices for a really long and they always know when she is in danger and warn her. While she is out with her best friend Deke they barely escape being attacked by a horde of zombies. They make it to their high school where they see some more survivors from her school. Which include the boy Donna has a crush on and the girl she hates. Donna starts getting confused as her best friend Deke and the boy she’s had a crush on both start acting different towards her. But that is the least of her worries. They are running out of supplies and the zombies are closing in but some of these zombies are not your typical I want to eat your brains zombies. They have a plan and Donna is a big part of that plan as they want her for her special ability and if she has any chance of survival she will need to listen to those voices.

Donna is one of those characters that got on my nerves at times with not willing to stand up and help but she is also very scared so I understood that.  I’m not sure I could handle the situation any better and I was able to connect with that with her. Deke is very brave and he will go out of his way to help others. He did get annoyed with Donna at times but he still will do anything for her which made me love him even more. The other characters are well written and add to the story line as well.  

I really enjoyed this book and the spin on the zombies was refreshing. I am looking forward to reading more from Alison in the future. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
