Publisher's Summary

Fortune favors.... the dead!
Some secrets are too horrific to ever be forgiven, and some people should never be trusted.
Tortured, starved, and on the run, Nina thinks she's faced the worst that mankind has to offer, but she's wrong. She may have survived this long, but she hasn't come out of it unscathed, and there's worse to come.
Nina's trusty Doc Martens are showing signs of the zombie apocalypse, and she isn't faring much better. With her snarky attitude guaranteed to get her in trouble, Nina needs to forgive the past, to live once more in the present, and learn that sometimes she needs to place her trust in other people.
Because when people are faced with the end of times, they'll do anything to survive.

Listen to Odium before reading this review

We pick up where we left Nina in the first book…..although not exactly where we left them which was a good thing…..after reading the blurb I was a bit hesitant to start this one as I did not know if I could handle hearing what Nina went through with the Forgotten….. it was nice that we started out a bit further in and then kind of flashed back….it was not so hard to hear after that (still brutal but…easier to deal with at least for me). The first new couple we meet are Deacon & Hillary, who don’t meet up with Nina and crew but I thought it was headed there…..when I finally figured out who they were…it was a Holy Crap! moment. There was also the OCD/Cleaning obsessed kids and then at their final destination the people at the army base/bunker. I’m not going go into detail here cause I’m not sure I can do it without giving spoilers, you are just going to have to read or listen yourself, trust me it’s good.

My biggest compliant about this book is that the author seemed to way over use “I roll my eyes” for Nina….I stopped counting after the 34th mention…..I know it’s a small thing to nitpick but it was used so much it stood out. My only other complaint and I’m sure I’m not alone is Hello Cliffhanger…..I mean really, first we have to come to terms with the whole Nina and Mikey thing…..then you give us that ending….ARRRRGGGGHHHH. I have decided I am waiting for the series to be complete and then I can listen to them all back to back……which will kinda suck to have to wait but I think in the end I will be a much happier reader/listener (I have no patience….I want to know what happens and I usually want to know now….)

The narration…..again Jennifer Reilly did a fabulous job with all the characters and she really does Nina’s character well, I also really enjoyed her voice for Nova. She made distinguishing all the characters very easy as they all their own unique voice or way of speaking and I’m looking forward to seeing what else she narrates.

So, if you are reading this review and you have not read Odium…STOP, go get the first book and get pulled into this crazy messed up zombie apocalypse and enjoy the ride.

Attitude and Doc Martins will get you pretty far..

Odium 2 picks right up pretty close to where Odium 1 left off. You miss most of the torture that Nina went through, but you do get some snippets of it. And it is bad. Really bad. Any normal person would be curled up in a ball sucking their thumb if they had to go through what she did. Still she goes on. And keeps her snarky attitude. Nina is one of my favorite hot headed, stubborn, eye rolling heroines. Even if I do occasionally want to stop and shake the heck out of her. It makes her that much more realistic.

Book two proves to be much darker than the first one. You meet some great characters along the way, and watch them all get into trouble trying to find someplace safe.
Jennifer Reilly is the voice of Nina. She reads her perfectly. When I read Odium Origins part 2 I read it with her voice in my mind.

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment of Odium, and what trouble Nina will manage to get into. Thanks to the holy crap revelation at the end, I will be stalking Claire until it is released.
