Review

Waking The Zed reminds me of a classic and memorable Twilight Zone episode. So yeah, if you are into zombies, you should enjoy Waking The Zed. GoodReads.com

From the Author

Who writes stories about zombies anyway? I think I was about 12 years old when I first saw the classic Night Of The Living Dead at a midnight movie. Let me tell you that the 2 AM walk home through small town streets was creepy even though I was accompanied by a group of other adolescents. I have recently become a fan of the TV show The Walking Dead while catching up with the graphic novel series.

More About the Author

ML Katz started reading Dick and Jane on a train and never looked back. She is a lover of good examples of almost all genres of fiction, but is particularly attached to speculative works. She believes that an emotional connection with readers transcends genre. That may be why Ms. Katz's own favorites range from Pride & Prejudice to Lord of The Rings to Lonesome Dove to Scarpetta novels.

This may also be one reason why her books are hard to classify, but seem to be enjoyed by readers of many different types of books.

Ms. Katz also enjoys helping self published authors find their voice and an audience.

Waking the Zed is an original take on the origins of the Zombie Apocalypse. It's good, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. The story was a concise page turner, and the main characters were well developed so I could either hate them or care about them, depending upon the character. If you're an fan of The Walking Dead, or other ZA novels, this story could fit right in though it borrows nothing from that story.

Except for the gore, it's also pretty family friendly, so it could be enjoyed by mature teenagers, young adults, and adults.

My iPhone is filled with zombie apps, I watch The Walking Dead religiously, and if I see a good zombie eBook I'll load it on to my kindle. My friend recently recommended The Waking Zed and I'm glad he did! The suspense builds and builds until you can't take it anymore! My heart was literally pounding at the beginning when the experiment goes wrong and the zombies begin to wake up. Compared to most eBooks the style, formatting and writing done by Katz is purely professional- this book delivers!

ML Katz poses the question, if you could do away with death would you? Her character Dr. Ada Klein absolutely plans to and won’t let anything stand in her way. A brilliant doctor who has made millions off of past research has since started Future Faith Cryonics.

It’s goal?

To freeze the wealthy who are sick or dying until a cure for their disease or death itself can be found.

Enter Pam. She’s the main character and is an intern at Future Faith. While working here will look amazing on her resume she hates everything about her job. Dr. Ada Klein is demanding and disrespectful and on top of that she got into medicine to help the living, not babysit the dead. For all intents and purposes that is exactly what she’s doing as she monitors cryogenics capsules.

Boring? Not so much when the night she plans on quitting her boss storms in and tells her to help monitor a patient. A patient? That’s right. Ada believes she has discovered the cure for death and is ready to find out.

I’m sure you can see where this is going but if not I’ll spell it out to you. Things go wrong. Horribly horribly wrong. Her cure for death is in all actuality the birth of the zombie virus. Pam, Ada, and another are all able to escape the hordes of undead and barely make it to a safe room. From there Ada calls her contacts at the military who come to clean up her mess.

They don’t do the best of jobs.

While most of the zombies are taken care of Ada and a few infected are brought back to the military base. A quarantine is attempted but fails as no one believes the extent of what is happening.

This novella gets my one complaint I always have for well written novellas. It’s too short.

What can I say? I'm a big fan of zombies. Something about their unstoppable drive and creepy rotting flesh gets my heart racing. I would definitely say that Waking the Zed helped to satisfy my zombie itch. Without giving too much away, the story centers around a brilliant but emotionally distant scientist who had early success in her career, but has since struggled to keep up with her reputation. Her skeptical graduate assistant intern, Pam Stone, works for her simply because it pays well and would be a great resume builder. Little does Pam suspect the magnitude of what her boss is secretly trying to accomplish.

Along the way you meet some interesting characters, like the devious and manipulative engineer Enrico and the well-meaning but naïve Captain Crawford. The story moves quickly and has some really great zombie bite moments without being overly gory. Even if you've never read a zombie book before, you'll quickly get wrapped up in this story. I'm about to move on to book two. Highly recommend for anyone that loves a zombie thrill.

Well i've just finished reading this and i have to say,it's a great read.The author kept it real and didn't go overboard,which kept it believeable.Just goes to show how, one persons arrogance,can cause so much havoc and chaos and "all in the name of science".Well done ML KATZ,Kept me going from start to finish,please make sure the story continues with a book 2, as i can't wait to find out what happens to Pam,Captain Crawford and the youthful looking Corporal Gordon."YOU CAN'T LEAVE US HANGING LIKE THIS". Would recommend this book to everyone who loves a great Living Dead story. "5 Stars", Well done.

Rule #1- Never experiment on cadavers with bio-engineered super liquids, especially at night! Dr. Pameala, I suppose never learnt this rule and due to her curious nature has the misfortune of waking up a horde of zombies. This book does for Zombies what Michael Crichton did for Dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. The writing is superb, the suspense is edge of the seat, and story is awesome.

ML Katz takes us to the beginnings of the zombie apocalypse. Don't blink because you will no doubt read this in one sitting. Katz invites the reader to run with her characters, including the unsinkable Pam, in a sprint for life during the zombie outbreak. Hold on for a great ride!
