Brandt Evans is floundering. Leadership of their dysfunctional group wasn’t something he asked for or wanted. Their problems are numerous: Remy Angellette is grief-stricken and suicidal, Gray Carter is distant and reclusive, and Cade Alton is near death. And things only get worse.
While Brandt and Gray are on the hunt for supplies, a still-recovering Cade is kidnapped by a militant group of survivors. On Brandt’s return, he’s told of a conspiracy involving test subjects, pathogens, and CDC doctors.
Brandt’s race to save Cade takes him back to the dangerous streets of Atlanta, where not all is as it seems. And with a horde of infected closing in and the rescue mission in jeopardy he comes tantalizingly close to a cure that might save what’s left of humanity from the ravages of the Michaluk Virus.
The Becoming: Revelations is book 3 in The Becoming series being brought to us by author Jessica Meigs and published by Permuted Press. Yet again, readers are sent hurtling head first into the hordes. We gain friends, we loose friends and in between zombies are killed and one of the many secrets of the Michaluk Virus begins to reveal itself.
To say that Jessica Meigs has kept me enthralled in the world of The Becoming is an absolute understatement. The plot of the story keeps moving forward with very little down time. It’s kept me on my toes and only rarely did I have even a guess as to what was coming next. The characters, both new and old, continue to grow and change. The dialogue between the various characters, for the most part, is relevant to the situations at hand. There were a few times when, while I understand using humor to alleviate a stressful situation, I did not find it appropriate. This, however, may just be a matter of opinion and other readers may not feel the same.
Journeying from relative safety into the city where the Michaluk Virus was created our friends must look inside themselves to find the courage, honor and strength within to keep going and fight for their lives and the lives of those who have become family.
The Becoming: Revelations, in this readers opinion, is another action packed must read from author Jessica Meigs. The characters I have come to love and hate continue to fight for their survival with some meeting an untimely end and others find a new beginning.
