I really enjoyed the story told here. Nothing beats a good treasure hunt. Adventure, mystery, a massive amount of history that I can’t wait to study more of, and fascinating characters. Scott Brick is a wonderfully talented narrator able to voice a multitude of characters and enhance each of their personalities with his performance.

Unexplained events are happening at Oxford these days. Several students have been attacked at night by some strange form of wild animal. It can scale walls with cat-like agility. Its arms are as thin and as strong as steel bands. And there is one student who conducts midnight studies in his room with certain Egyptian artifacts. The most significant of which is a 6'7" tall mummy.

A lovely reading of a tale I enjoyed the first time I read it. Great to hear it read aloud.

Molly Everett 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. 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.

We’ve all read books about zombies or seen the movies. Whether they shamble along brokenly or are hordes of mewling teeth running at breakneck speed after their next meal, zombies have been done before.

And then J.B. Havens kicked the door in and handed us Molly.

I love this book. I’ve read it before and I loved it then, but hearing it brought a whole new level of awesome (and a whole new level of nightmares) to the story. Kathleen McHenry took J.B. Havens’ masterful introduction to a brand new type of zombie and I am fucking sold. I am invested. I am going to follow this series - may it be longer than an uncontested zombie’s not-lifespan - to its conclusion, knowing that every word I read (or listen to) is going to be absolutely epic.

If you haven’t read it yet, pick up a copy. Grab two - one to read and one to hear, because we’ve just been introduced to a story that will blow every other zombie story out of the water and leave them wanting.

This was my first foray into James Rollins' work, but I can see I'll be spending a lot of time with Mr. Rollins. He has such a variety of well-rounded characters, crafted so well that it's hard to remember they are fictional. Even the antagonists are sympathetic, or even likable, which makes their fight with the main characters all the more difficult.

While there is romance in this story and it plays a decent-sized part, it doesn't consume the story, but adds to it.

I truly enjoyed listening to the recording. The narrator has a very easy voice to listen to and he narrates the emotions of the characters well.

Now I need to go buy the next book. This series is going to consume my whole world and I love it.
