Read The Becoming (The Becoming, #1) Online Free - 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.

Starting a new zombie series is always bittersweet. Because a good zombie story is not about the zombies, it's about the characters. Characters that you will shortly begin to know and love, characters that you truly care about, but… you know death will eventually come knocking to at least one of...

This is a 4.5 star review.
What can I say? Jessica Meigs is an awesome writer! She really hits it out of the park with this debut novel. The writing is crisp, exciting, dynamic, and freakin' scary! Her characters are well-defined, make sense, and interact with each other very realistically. Her zo...

There is a really good story somewhere in The Becoming. The action scenes are full of intensity, and the zombies are unlike any I’ve ever read about. This book, this series, has potential. Unfortunately, I think the writing kept that potential from being reached.
I didn’t have too many issues with...

I don't know if it's because I just can't concentrate when listening to audio books...or I'm just choosing the wrong titles but this just didn't do it for me.
So again - I have to say...."it's not you - it's me"

I wanted to like the book. The image of a strong female lead is compelling... but that just didn't pan out.
Cade, a former sniper, can't seem to think of a plan without a guy doing it for her.
Ethan starts out as a nice guy and transforms into an idiot.
Brandt is a cardboard cut out of a marine.

This book is unbelievable. A marine, an Israeli soldier, and a Memphis cop. They shoot people four times and the people keep coming and they ask “wtf?” The dialog is terrible, not what trained people would say or how they would act. 30% in and they are still “wtf, people sure are acting crazy”. N...

I'm going to be upfront and totally honest. This read was a bit disappointing. I have heard nothing but good reviews on this and apparently my expectations went above and beyond what the author was capable of delivering. It's not the crappiest read I have ever had the displeasure of reading, but...

The Becoming tells the tale of three people in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. Brandt is a military man who flees Atlanta not long after the start of the Michaluk virus. He was at the epicenter, having volunteered to be one of the guards at the CDC when the plague first broke free from o...

This is a tricky review to write because the author is a friend of mine and she's been super supportive of my own literary work. But I'll give it my best shot.
Overall, this is a good story. I think that it's a promising start for a writer who clearly has a lot of potential as a storyteller. But i...
