Genesis Z by Everist J Miller is about Ray Worthington after the war with the zombies. Saying the word 'zombie' was punishable by death and the zombies had been turned into volunteers who did all the hard labor. Ray was in charge of the volunteers at a construction site where they were helping to rebuild the city. A company designed a prototype HUD (which looks like a virtual game headset, but was used to control the volunteers) and gave Ray's boss a prototype, without the boss knowing it wasn't completely tested. Thanks to one of Ray's human colleagues, things got completely out of hand. Ray soon finds out how far a person will go to survive and find his freedom, knowing it could cost humanity.
Genesis Z by Everist J Miller was quite fascinating and disturbing at the same time. I used to have trouble reading horror, but after this book I may try some more. I should warn you there are some swear words especially the F word. It is extremely graphic too, which impressed me. I loved how Everist J Miller used technology and explained how it worked without making readers feel stupid, like some hard sci-fi does. This book definitely makes you think about how far you would go to survive and ask how far would you go to save a loved one like your child. Everist J Miller made the ending intriguing, because you aren't quite sure if it's a happy or sad one. I guess it all depends on your point of view. I wonder if this will be a series, because there was at least one character that you don't know what happened to them. It would be cool to see if Everist J Miller does a sequel to see what happened to Ray and one other character. If you don't mind gore, then I highly recommend Genesis Z.
