My Review: 

I love reading books with lots and lots of zombies. I can’t seem to get enough of zombie books. I have read so many that it is very hard to surprise me with the zombies but Michaelbrent Collings has done just that as he has written a zombie book quite unlike any I believe I have read before. I loved the twist that he added to the zombies.

Genesis started out with a bang with zombies at the starting gate and believe me I loved each and every minute of it. That beginning pulled me in and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through to the end. I don’t believe I even took a breath from the moment it all began, well, of course, if that was even possible that is.

Michaelbrent Collings knows how to make each and every scene come alive. The descriptions are so real and vivid that you have no problem none what so ever picturing it all in your head as if you are standing right there witnessing each and every zombie bite.

Genesis kept reminding me of that movie World War Z or maybe it was more the zombies themselves. I’m not quite sure what it was that reminded me of the zombies in World War Z. Maybe it was how fast they were. I kept thinking that any minute now the zombies would start piling on top of each other or something like that.

I sure would like to see Genesis on the big screen as I would love to have another zombie TV series to watch. The Walking Dead is my favorite TV show ever. I am going to miss it big time. But I still have Fear the Walking Dead to look forward too or at least I sorely hope so.

I love zombies so much that I highly recommend Genesis to all those zombie fans out there! One-click your copy of Genesis today for a thrilling walk with zombies!
