After spending four years on death row for the brutal murder of her husband, Sophia Dennison takes her final walk in the Mountain View Facility in Gatesville and is put to death by lethal injection at 12:00 a.m. Several hours after Sophia's execution, FBI agent Mark Armitage is called to investigate a serious disturbance at the prison. Upon arriving he finds the place a war zone. After being debriefed by his friend and partner, Dustin Mercer, he views the videotapes and learns that the source of the destruction is Sophia. Footage reveals that seven minutes after her execution, she miraculously resurrected, breaking free of her bonds and overpowering several guards. Sophia Dennison has escaped and is now on the run.... The hunt is on for the first actual superhuman.

A good yarn but horribly written

Would you try another book written by Kipjo K. Ewers or narrated by Carla Mercer-Meyer?

Possibly if I was desperate for something to read. I would quite like to hear where the story goes but I'm not sure I can put myself through listening to more of that writing.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The First?

The part where our heroine is reciting long passages from a book about DNA then doing the same in Spanish.

Any additional comments?

If you are patient and don't mind listening to a book that appears to have been written by a teenager in a spare afternoon, you will probably enjoy the story. It is an interesting take on the superhero genre but by no means will it become a classic.
