This was a well written tale that combined some of my favorite elements of story-telling. Emeline's world has changed drastically since the government sponsored cure for Aids took a wrong turn and turned everyone into zombies, werewolves, fairies or vampires. Emeline is one of the strongest in her village and it is up to her and a few trusty friends to unravel a larger plot.

I read this book over the course of two or three days. It was fun and fast-paced. Very enjoyable!!

I loved how Rachel joined elements of mythical fantasy, such as fairies, trolls, and mermaids, with urban fantasy themes such as zombies and vampires, and threw in some conspiracy theory and kill-em-all action with it. Emeline is a strong female character, and I found that I strangely enjoyed the fact that she had killed her boyfriend and most of her family when they had turned into mutants. It had many "gasp" moments, as well as "have to read just one more chapter even though it's already 1 a.m ...more

I’d heard some good things about this book and had wanted to read it for a while – I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed.

It did take me a few pages to really get into this; the meticulous world building at the beginning read like a bit of an info-dump yet the author managed to keep my interest. Once I read past this, I was engrossed.

Emeline is feisty, independent and doesn’t take crap from anyone. She’s also a crack shot with both gun and bow and has a very keen sense of smell. With the excep

I love books that defy genres, ones where it's difficult afterwards to pigeon hole where it would go in a bookshop. Emeline and the Mutants is like that. You start thinking its a straight post-apocalyptic survival sci-fi (you know, I am Legend stylie), then you think 'there's zombies and vampures' so... horror... but then up pops fairies, trolls, harpies, mermaids... so fantasy... But hang on, it's a mystery-thriller with a death that's being investigated...
Now this would have the potential to b

A cure and a vaccine were developed to deal with AIDS. It was administered to the population, and caused mutations in most people. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, fairies, mermaids, trolls, harpies, etc, started to appear.

Emeline is a valued member of the Daisy Hill compound because of her sniper skills. She specializes in zombies and vampires with a rifle or a bow and arrow. When her brother Warwick is murdered at home and his body is missing, Emeline starts r

Novel approach to dystopian fiction! It kept my interest from start to finish. I loved the interaction between the main character, Emeline and Gwennie! Tsoumbakos developed her characters well and maintained a great tension throughout the book. The interesting thing is that I'm not much of a science fiction/fantasy/dystopia fan, but I felt an unexpected compulsion to learn what happens in the end to characters that I grew to care about. Looking forward to reading more from this talented author!

I enjoyed Emiline and The Muntants and found it very much in keeping with the True Blood series. I found that it was quite a short story so got straight into the action and the supernatural creatures were introduced in a way that made them plausible. I found the conspiracy to be well explained and I liked the main characters, mostly Gwennie. I was suprised when Milosh turned out to be a bad guy, that snuck right up on me, and was happy with the events of his demise. I like the concept of the jou ...more

Although the beginning was a little difficult to navigate, I still kept wanting to continue reading as the whole concept was interesting. Usually I do not like all my paranormal creatures crammed into one story (like with Vampire Diaries), but with the apocalyptic atmosphere and the mutation of the virus, it fit well that there would be different strains to the mutations - I suppose almost like different races and nations. A very original story, which I enjoyed reading very much.
