Interesting read

I enjoyed this book and finished it in one day. I had never read a zombie book before and liked the authors take on it. At times it felt like the second or third book in a series instead of the first, which bothered me a bit. Also the formatting was a little off; although, it might just be that way since I read it on my phone. I like that even though it's a series the end was wrapped up enough to feel finished. I hate cliff endings and will stop reading a series that has them. I
This book is unrealistic and borders on idiotic at times. I have a hard time following the reasoning behind decisions and explanations. It is poorly done.
A woman sees an injured man on the street and therefore concludes there was an emergency somewhere. She doesn’t want to help him because of her newborn baby she has to take care of although he is bleeding. Well ok then.
But then the author switches suddenly to her hoping the injured man doesn’t carry a gun?!
Which in that instant doesn’t make mu

Definitely had potential
But had too many points of view with too many characters and too few zombies to really make it from good to great. May read others in the series if I am stuck for something to read, but not rushing into the next book

"I don't know about you, but I don't plan to face the zombie apocalypse sober." When I read this line, I thought that I had found a true treasure in the zompoc genre. Alas, after finishing the book, I can't say that is true. I have to say that I just didn't really enjoy this book that much.

The premise of Moms fighting against zombies is intriguing, but the story just didn't follow up to my satisfaction. First of all, the book is told from two different POV's with no overlapping of characters. I

Review of Moms against Zombies

When it comes to zombies, it turns out I prefer the funny campy zombies. This story is grounded in more reality than any zombie book I’ve read.

Moms against Zombies is a complex tale of various families dealing with something out of the twilight zone: real Zombies are invading the country and multiplying in horrific speed. So the various families try to move to a more isolated place to survive the apocalypse.

While some believed it a hoax, hired actors dressed as zomb

This book started great and then it got ridiculous. Days after the zombie apocalypse started, they were still able to go to a Costco and grab some lunch! What!?! Your kids are left at home and you've seen dead people walking but let's stop and grab a bite. Then the weird "initiation" was just cruel and strange. So the warning about the mean uncle wasn't real, the cold shoulder to the sister-in-law wasn't real, or was just the blessing? It's not the worst zombie book I read, but not the best. I w ...more

I love a good zombie book, and throw in two kick ass moms it makes for a good read.
There are two occurring stories in this book, one following Emma and her newborn son Pierce getting the call from her military husband to leave the city and head to Nana & Pop in the mountains and the other following Trish her kids and her husband Cooper, who seems to be more than meets the eye job wise - you think he is just some IT guy, but as the story progresses you soon realise that he has some kind of secret

Starting off, I will say that the formatting of this book's Kindle edition almost put me off on reading it. There are line spaces in the middle of sentences. It did make the novel hard to read.

Moms Against Zombies is told in multiple POVs (first and third person). This wrecked the flow of the story as it felt as if Morgan could not decide a point of view. There are jumps between the chapters. For example, there is Chapter 1 which is followed by Chapter 2. Then the story jumps to Chapter Six and

Emma doesn’t realize that she is seeing a zombie all she knows is that she has to get her baby to safety before they are attacked.

Emma Jackson is an army wife and new mom with all the uncertainties that come with it… until that fear is pushed in a different direction. Instead of worrying about diapers and feeding schedules, her only objective is to keep her child alive after being chased by a man who looks entirely too dead.

So I went into Moms Against Zombies thinking it will be a kick butt book that was action packed and a little like the Walking Dead but with some bad ass moms. Now the moms in this story are bad ass​ and they get what needs to be done, done. But it isn't as action packed with the zombies as I thought it would be, which this doesn't take away from the story because there is still so much going on and as a mom it all had me in a panic! We have 2 different moms and 2 different stories happening here ...more

I'm not a fan of books that alternate between multiple stories. Because I tend to read in spurts, it just gets to be too many characters too quickly. So I found this one a chore to read. Very little action for the opening of a zombie apocalypse.

And not a complete story. Just the first entry in a series. Which I'll not be continuing.

I volunteered to review this book without any promises about the review (the rating or the posting).

I’ve read other books by Alathia so it helped me to understand her writing style when it came to zombies and the apocalypse in her books. She’s incredible in weaving a not-so-horror story within a horror genre. It’s not all guts and gore as one might expect. It’s more a “Walking Dead” telling of the apocalypse. You meet and follow characters who aren’t army, military, or otherwise. You see no

I'm not one for the overdone zombie apocalypse stories, but the title itself gave me the idea that this one would have a bit of a unique flavor to it. The story is told in 1st Person POV but switches main characters: moms with different backgrounds. This led me to believe that we would be reading a journal type of story from the viewpoint of several different mothers experiencing a zombie takeover in their town, but instead it just jumped between two women. This of course led me to believe that ...more

Really good read here. I love how the author wanted to start at the very being of the virus with it being hoax's to real deal zombie Apocalypse. We get to follow two different mom's and their families on how the response to the end of the world. All liked all the character's.

Overall the story wasn’t bad but it was on the short side. The author apparently does NOT understand breastfeeding, formula, or feeding a baby in order to keep it alive during food and water shortages. For instance, it’s an apocalypse and formula is no longer going to be produced. It’s the apocalypse, finding safe water will eventually become an issue. Breastfeeding provides a source of antibodies and a bunch of other stuff to keep babies healthy, boobs can also be a pacifier and smart people mi ...more

The story throws you in with the moms and their first encounter with a zombie. I wish the characters would have been introduced a bit more but instead I was surprised that both moms were on apocalypse mode nearly instantly and both were having „to go“ bags, guns and emergency military style drills. The kids as well. But apart from this first zombie situation, the story carries on with family gathering. The end-of-the-world threat gets nearly forgotten. Also, nobody seems to be too concerned, the ...more

Excellent Entry into Series

The only reason for for stars is a few editorial errors, which as A. Paris Morgan continues to grow as a writer. The storyline is definitely there, and if I continue to read a series after book one (which is a definite!) then I consider it a win for the author. I do like the aspect that the zombies are not around every corner... yet. Not every zom-poc novel needs to rush the transmission rate to high gear.

The two groups of characters are full of interesting, well flesh

I wanted to read this book since I read another of Alathia Paris Morgan’s books, Infected Waters: A Titanic Disaster. In Mom’s Against Zombies, we are following two different families as the zombie outbreak begins and the story is told from the perspective of various characters, mainly two of the moms. Some of the characters reactions to an actual zombie apocalypse seemed way more relaxed than I would be, but I think this is a pretty good start to the series and I hope the stories intersect at s ...more

A fresh new take on Zombies

I thought this book was well written with great detail tAken with each character.
This author give a fresh perspective on zombies. We start out with it being called a hoax do to a theft of a computer program, but learn it's real, the zombies are here.
I enjoyed following one Emma and Trish along with there families. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. I would encourage you to start reading this series.

okay, you are one sneaky lady, you have these books so well thought out, you can't just stop at book one and give it a break, you need to buy the next one and keep going. I just love these little stories Alanthia Morgan has and the characters are so detailed, i have a picture of everything going on in my head. and I absolutely love that you add more characters and they all start tieing together in some form or another. I'm going to keep reading these and you got a new fan :) ...more

Love this book

The title drew me in from first sight and once I started reading it, I wanted more of these moms. Alathia Paris Morgan has created a great apocalyptic beginning and I can't wait to read more from her. This is also a great YA book to keep kids interested in reading . great job. Loved the groups and the humor they have.

Slow start, but got better...

Slow start, the characters seemed very one dimensional, but that changed quickly as you learn these mother’s are made of sterner stuff then you are led to believe. Definitely will be purchasing book two, very interested in seeing how this story develops.

A new take

There's more comedy in this book than there are zombies. It's the beginning of the apocalypse and these moms take no prisoners. A lighthearted and funny take on a zombie apocalypse. Really fun to read and if this happens I want the moms on my side.

Great book! It has great characters and plot. There are 2 stories going on at the same time so sometimes its hard to keep up with all the characters. Lots of action but not a lot of zombies. Many theories of how it happened but we do not get a final answer. There is some spy stuff going on too. You do have to read the next book to get the final answer. I am going to read it because it was interesting.
