The Becoming (The Becoming #1) by Jessica Miegs (Blog Tour Review)

The Becoming (The Becoming, #1)

The Michaluk Virus is loose. In the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, the Michaluk Virus has escaped the CDC, and its effects are widespread and devastating. Most of the population of the southeastern United States have become homicidal cannibals. As society rapidly crumbles under the hordes of infected, three people-Ethan Bennett, a Memphis police officer; Cade Alton, his best friend and former IDF sharpshooter; and Brandt Evans, a lieutenant in the US Marines-band together against the oncoming crush of death and terror sweeping across the world. As Cade, Brandt, and Ethan hole up in a safe house in Tupelo, others begin to join them in their bid for survival. When the infected attack and they're forced to flee, one departs to Memphis in search of answers while the others escape south to Biloxi, where they encounter more danger than they bargained for. And in Memphis, the answers that one man finds are the last answers he wanted, answers that herald a horrific possibility that there may be more to this virus than first suspected.

Ahh Zombies.
Who doesn't love a good zombie story?
the blood,
the brains,
the horror!
I love it, and I really enjoyed reading this zombie novel too.

What first drew me to the novel when I got the invitation to join the blog tour for the book was the cover. It really intrigued me and I like how it really seemed to fit with the theme of the novel and now after reading the book I really think it suits it perfectly.

I really enjoyed the way that Meigs created her post-zombie apocalyptic world and the way that she created her three main characters Cade, Brandt and Ethan and I think that she did a pretty bang up job in the writing department.

The Becoming has everything you would expect from a zombie thriller, gore, adventure, thrills etc. but for me the way the author approached it and wrote it was superb. I mean I haven't read many zombie novels but this one for me stands apart from the rest. I really enjoyed the authors "voice" and all throughout the book I felt as if I were in it with her characters. To me that means the author is a good one because not every book is able to make me feel as though I am actually right there in the midst of the blood, gore and adventure.

I was so surprised by how much I enjoyed the book I'm already itching to read the author's other books! I highly recommend this read to anyone who likes horror, zombie, dystopian, post-apocalyptic novels this one is sure to thrill you and quench your thirst for brains!

  3. I am glad you liked it, they are redoing the cover art and it is going to be sooooo cool! I wish I cold share it but I have been told it is not complete yet.

  4. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
