Publisher's Summary

For the past two years, Jules has floated through life.

When the virus was released it changed everything about the world. Jules lost her mom and her home, forcing her to live with the father she barely knows. Now, even as society works to rebuild, Jules still feels like she doesn’t quite fit in.

Then she meets Roman.

Even before the zombies, he only had himself to depend on. Brooding and rebellious, Roman isn’t anyone Jules would have pictured herself with before the zombies came. But now she finds herself willing to give up everything to be with him.

The attraction is too strong for either one of them to ignore, but Roman and Jules soon discover that the uncertainty of their new world extends much farther than just the zombies. When disaster strikes, Roman must race against the most terrifying clock imaginable to save Jules, or once again end up alone.

Teenage love & struggles in the zompoc world

Alone (A Zombie Novel) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Amber C. Morton is a fabulous YA zombie story! Recommend if you enjoy teen romance stories mixed with the zompoc.

What’s it about? During the zombie apocalypse, Jules and her father go to an established safe town for her father’s job. While there she meets Roman and his father, Rick, who is the town regulator. The town is set up to protect those within the walls and maintains the facade that all is well, but Jules learns that’s far from the truth. The beginning is heavy on the romance/setting up the story, while the second half is more about zombies/surviving. The views alternate between Roman and Jules and the story moves forward at a quick pace. There are two endings and I appreciate Kate did this as it makes me love the story all the more.

The narrator, Amber C. Morton, did an OK job. I hate to write this but need to note there’s a noticeable breathing noise taken before speaking and it’s distracting. With that being said, the more you listen to the story without interruptions, the more you get use to it. If this wasn’t there, it’d be a five star narration in my opinion. I hope Amber continues narrating as she has a lot of potential.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: This takes place in the zompoc, so think of things relative to this- death, violence, guns, father is physically abusive to son, absentee father, rape accusation (didn’t happen), sex.

Romeo and Juliet!

What a wonderful story! I have not been a huge fan of “growing up/relationship” tales, but Kate L. Mary has a talent for getting straight to your heart. The two characters of interest, Roman and Jules, were both sort of loners by the environment they grew up in. Roman, described as a juvenile delinquent with daddy issues and a smart ass. Jules, more of an introvert, few friends and lacking confidence. Both had lost their mothers being raised primarily by their fathers. Roman’s father was abusive, Jules’ father indifferent. When these two lost souls found each other, it spawned a romance fierce enough to die for. Reminded me a little of Romeo and Juliet. This is their story, and it’s a great one!

Great Alternative Endings!!!

I loved the storyline. it covered some very deep subject matters. Ballsey!!! Great Characters and Great Narration. I loved the alternative endings and epilogue's Great idea!! all in all worth a credit. they may have been younger characters but that didn't mean I couldn't connect with them. I smiled, laughed out loud and cried... 5☆'s.

Great Listen

There is far more romance in the story than zombies, but that was fine by me. It tugs at the heart strings.
