Moms Against Zombies
Emma Jackson is an army wife and new mom with all the uncertainties that come with it… until that fear is pushed in a different direction. Instead of worrying about diapers and feeding schedules, her only objective is to keep her child alive after being chased by a man who looks entirely too dead.
Trish Walsh thought her day was bad when she had to drag all four of her children on an errand, but she rethinks the meaning after what she can only hope was someone dressed up like a zombie beats on her car door. Yet, the bloody mess left behind is anything but reassuring.
Cooper Walsh’s job is top secret. When criminals break in to steal his company’s secrets, he overhears the conspiracy devised to create chaos as a cover-up. Knowing he must do everything in his power to right the wrong, he sets out on a mission.
Surviving long enough to reunite with their families is all that matters. That… and stopping the zombie apocalypse before it destroys them.
Theme | Plot
Starting off, I will say that the formatting of this book's Kindle edition almost put me off on reading it. There are line spaces in the middle of sentences. It did make the novel hard to read.
Moms Against Zombies is told in multiple POVs (first and third person). This wrecked the flow of the story as it felt as if Morgan could not decide a point of view. There are jumps between the chapters. For example, there is Chapter 1 which is followed by Chapter 2. Then the story jumps to Chapter Six and Seven and then Chapter 10. Perhaps, the scenes in certain chapters could be broken up to fill these gaps.
Morgan gives the name of the character that each chapter and scene jumps that the POV is in. This helps reinforce who that particular chapter | scene is about.
There were a couple of times that I found the characters’ reactions unbelievable. Because of this and despite trying to like the book because of the Zombie Apocalypse through a mother’s eye angle, I found this novel to be a chore to read. I would read it in spurts, coming back to it to read a little bit more.
Moms Against Zombies is the first part of a series. I would recommend anyone who likes a story that is focused on character development.
