Publisher's Summary

When hell claws its way up from the dark depths of the Earth, and the dead begin to walk again, for several people the zombie apocalypse doesn't just mean the end of the world as they know it, it is also the beginning of a brave new life for them. For some it offers freedom, for others a deeper torment and unforgiving life than they ever thought possible.
The coward, the street rat, the hero, and the lovers, everyone has their place. What really decides their fate in this new existence, nature, or nurture? Who they become when the world goes to hell is the true decider on their own humanity, and will ultimately decide their fates.
Forever changed, they have to learn to adapt to this dangerous and dark new world before they become one of the living dead themselves.
Odium Origins is an accompaniment to the novel Odium. It contains several short stories featuring some of the characters that you loved to hate from the full length novel, Odium.

Back stories to Odiums cast

What made the experience of listening to Odium Origins. A Dead Saga Novella. Part One. the most enjoyable?

I would say the narration and the backstories of the charactors we love and love to hate in odium.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that this novella helped us to understand why some of the characters act the way that they do in Odium.And it lets you know what life was like for the individuals.Steve & Jane,JD,Amy and Ben as well as Crunch & Mickey.

What does Jack Wallen, Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jack Wallen does a wonderful job at narrating.He always speaks clearly, at a level you can hear. He doesn't fade out when he does the female characters voice , like so many others do.He brought the story to life in a pleasing manner.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I probably felt concerned about JD's perdicament the most.

Any additional comments?

I used the sync with the ebook and Audiable,that made it nice. I could still hear the story while I was busy multitasking.

Two sides to every story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Odium Origins. A Dead Saga Novella. Part One.?

The laundromat scene with a certain marital aid. Hilarious and sad at the same time. If you ever wondered if it would make a good weapon.. you will have to listen to figure out what I am referring to. :)

What does Jack Wallen, Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jack has a smooth voice. It was a bit odd hearing him narrate a female during a quick sex scene, but after I got over the giggles at that, I loved listening to him.

Any additional comments?

This book was an amazing twist. Listen to Odium first and get your view on the characters. Then listen to this and prepare to have your mind completely twisted around. I absolutely loved this book. People are not always as they seem.
