Publisher's Summary

The Michaluk Virus is loose.
In the heart of Atlanta, the virus has escaped the CDC, and its effects are widespread and devastating. The virus infects nearly everyone in its path, turning much of the population of the southeastern United States into 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 safe houses, 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.


Audible Editor Reviews

In the first book of Jessica Meigs' The Becoming series, the Michaluk Virus has escaped Atlanta's Center for Disease Control, engulfing the Southeast and turning its citizens into zombies. Cade, Brandt, and Ethan band together in an attempt to survive the hordes of walking dead and find the truth behind the virus. Christian Rummel has an incredible burr to his voice, so pleasingly rumbling and intense in his performance of Meigs' story that he helps to make The Becoming a riveting experience. His laudable commitment to Meigs' characters and scenario should sway even the most undead skeptic of zombie fiction.

Bit Pointless

What did you like best about The Becoming? What did you like least?

I love Zombie, Vampire and end of the world type stories. The book was generally fine but the story just stopped rather than concluded.

What was most disappointing about Jessica Meigs’s story?

The ending I felt is lacked a real finish which made the book a little pointless and lacking in purpose.

Which scene did you most enjoy?


If this book were a film would you go see it?

Probably as I like this sort of genre of film but I'd wait for DVD.
