Publisher's Summary

For fans of zombie fiction (who are tired of The Walking Dead) and fans of the Divergent, Hunger Games, and Maze Runner series who want a more grown-up story.

From the authors who brought you the best-selling Citadel series and action-packed suspense thrillers...

Adam Bolland, a manager at the Colorado Springs municipal water treatment facility, is only trying to enjoy his career, family, and life.

But when things start changing around him, he isn't sure what's going on. His wife and kids aren't acting...normal. When he looks into it more, he realizes the problem is larger than that. His coworkers, friends, and everyone seem to be acting strange.

So he decides to take matters into his own hands and steals some vials of a mysterious chemical from his company, embarking on a mad escape from the police, placing himself and his family in danger.

But he must find out: What exactly is in the water?

A good start

I like that this is “Season One,” the opening of a big story, leaving you breathless and ready for more. I find the narrator similar to that of a crime show/documentary, which isn’t my favorite but I definitely find fitting to the story. Can’t wait to hear more!

a bit longwinded,

I took a while to get used to the guy who reads it, he sounds bored! the story (1st part) leads you on, and I shall listen to the second part. it's a bit long winded, doesn't go anywhere fast.

He wanted his wife back

After noticing that his previously argumentative family had become almost docile, Adam realised that it wasn't just them, nearly everyone one in his area seemed suprezsed, apart from him. And, Adam was certain, it had something to do with the wafer. The Beginning is the first in a trilogy, the Lucid: what and why was happening to the people around Adam? Who was behind the alterations? And how can Adam both stop and reverse it?I
This is a well written thriller with tension building from the very first page. David Gilmore's narration is good with excellent pacing and intonation, and individually distinctive voicing for character conservations. As the start of a three part serial, this book certainly offers potential for an overall interesting and exciting serial, drawing in the reader and leaving them wanting more.

I was fortunate in being freely gifted by the rights holder with a complimentary copy of the Beginning, the Lucid 1, at my request. Thank you. A good start to the serial and one which I will definitely continue to follow
