    What happens when a malevolent minister, a fast-food manager, a loyal dog, and the son of a kidnapper are forced to navigate an undead apocalypse and swarms of super-intelligent rats? The cannibalistic undead plague a Michigan town, prompting the National Guard to join forces with the Michigan Militia. A group of survivors attempts to make it to the Mackinac Bridge, while the god-fearing take on the godless in a bloody battle that is anything but holy.

    Story

    The Finster Effect by Wednesday Lee Friday is different from the other disaster books that I have read. The causes for the disaster will probably not surprise fans of the genre, but the way it plays out, and the voices used to share the tale are unique.

    A friend cautioned me ages ago that it is a risky thing to change protagonists within a work of fiction. She was right because doing so risks losing the reader, and the point, in a discordant confusion.

    But when the world ends, chaos is just what you should expect. So be prepared to wonder what the heck is going on at first. Keep going, because Ms. Friday has the mastery to pull off the shifting points of view and voices. She not only clearly differentiated between the various male and female humans, but you will hear the end of the world as observed by many species including rats, cats, and dogs as well as humans and zombies.

    Your reward for persistence will be a tour of a strange and frightening world that is moving from one kind of order, perhaps to another.

    The audio is crisp and clear. The reader, Nancy Linari, is a pleasure to hear. She does a wonderful job at enhancing the distinctly different voices the author created for each of the varied characters.

    “Faith is always rewarded in the end.”
