The Orphans is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. I love how so many of the characters are teens, who are faced with a horrible and scary reality and need to grow up quickly in order to survive. This is a fast-paced, post-apocalyptic zombie book that has a strong plot, multiple sub-plots and strong characters, while it is jam packed with action, gore, and suspense. It's a must read for any zompoc fan!
Jack Wallen, Jr. does a great job with the narration. He helps us distinguish between characters, tells the story in a natural way, and the dialogue is spoken realistically.
I love the unveiling of this story and the teens in it. My main issue was the military presence. Why are they such jerks? I get being hardcore in what they do, but I’d think they’d be a little more willing to listen to medical professionals and people who have been through direct battles with the infected already. Even if they happen to be teens.
I will say I’m not sure how much of the military coming across as jerks is the writing vs the narration, this narrator is hard to listen to, I’m holding out for when Eric A Sherman takes over right now. I know the narration will improve greatly then.
Over all the story remains engaging and I plan to continue with the next.
