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.

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.

This book starts normally, but when the dead rise, it fly's. Overall i thought it was really good. The main characters survive by the skin of their teeth. The government officials are kinda dumb, but i suppose that is par for the course.
Overall a good ride. Want more.

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.

I really really really liked this book and felt like it was over way too soon, so I will definitely be on the look out for any other books that may be coming in this series. I liked the main character, I liked the writing style, it was entertaining and an easy read!

Lost interest very early in the story. There were so many ways to contain the spread of the virus but overlooked
