Publisher's Summary

Life - and death - after the end of the world as we know it is more horrifying than anyone could have ever imagined.  

This is the beginning of Molly Everett’s story. She was just trying to survive all by herself during the zombie apocalypse, until she met a teenager named Kelle, who invited her to stay in the grocery store where she lived. For a short time, the two girls shared a bond, but a terrifying secret, hidden in the walk-in freezer, shatters their fragile peace.  

The events of that dreadful night turn Molly into an outcast, something neither zombie nor human. She’s forced to straddle the two worlds, while her inner humanity is at war with the beast she has become.  

But she’s not alone. Kelle was also changed. Not quite zombie and not quite human, but she’s definitely insane, and she wants revenge for what Molly did to her.  

Can Molly live this way, while remaining true to herself, or will she allow her newfound powers to control her? Only her instincts can ensure her survival - her zombie instincts.

Great start to a fun zombie apocalypse world with a twist

This book is like a taste test and all I can say is I want more. Great character building, suspense, and good vs evil undertones.

Molly: The Beginning

I enjoyed this short book. It was a bit different than the hordes of other zombie novels I have read. It is the first book in a series. The second book is pretty short as well. I like the idea of a series of short hitters. I like the idea of the 2 ladies getting partially turned and dealing with it rather differently. I also like that there are no real good guys in the version of the new world. Looking forward to the second book.

Interesting

Molly is an interesting take on a zombie apocalypse story. Not sure if it was good enough for me to continue the series or not. Good narration, but a few mispronounced words was a little irritating.

Great Book

Was free though an audiobook code in exchange for an honest review


I loved the book. Already, requested code for book 2. Narrated wasn't the best but still worth the listen.

Through the eyes of a zombie

I loved this book! Getting ready to start book 2. The audio on the narration isn't the best but she did a great job reading this.

What if you were an Alpha Zombie?

Requested a free code from a web site, no strings attached.

Interesting take on the zombie genre. I don't want to spoil the book. I listened to it in one sitting. It is a very short book and it left me wanting to learn more about this world. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

The narrator was very good.

If you found this review helpful, please indicate so. Thank You!

a monotone narration and horrible audio quality

the story gives you a few new wrinkle in the zombie genre, but the technical aspects of the recording really take way from the plot and you have to struggle to get through to the end.

New insight on Zombies

I have wanted to listen to this book for a while now
Good read! I look forward to listening to the next book. I like the twists the storyline takes. This is not your regular run of the mill zombie story.

Worst production I’ve ever heard

If the next one is done in an actual sound studio, I’ll buy it. Otherwise forget it!
