Germination (Feast of Weeds – 1) by Jamie Thornton

(Excerpt from Goodreads) A group of runaways. A horrifying virus.
Mary knows how to thrive on the street. She makes it her mission to keep other kids away from everyday monsters. But when she’s attacked by a crazed man clutching a bloody heart she realizes—there’s a new kind of monster in town.

A single drop of blood, and now Mary’s one of the infected. Unless she can stop the virus and save her friends, the new monster in town might just be her.

A post-apocalyptic Young Adult series where the runaways are the heroes, the zombies aren’t really zombies, and you can’t trust your memories—even if they’re all you have left.


My Review

4 stars

Mary is a street kid that left home a while ago to get away from an abusive situation. But Mary keeps her eyes out for the other kids and does what she can to help them out. Then she is approached by a guy with a heart in his hands. With one drop of the blood, Mary is now one of the infected. It’s a race against time to find a cure before she becomes a zombie.

I love zombies and this book is exactly what I look for. It’s a dirty, gritty story of a street kid that is trying to survive. I mysterious virus has been released and by one drop of blood Mary’s world goes from bad to worse. How is she supposed to help the kids she is with along with finding a cure?

This is a novella that hits the ground running. There is little time to wonder what is going on when you are off. But this book packs a big punch. I am hooked and can’t wait to read Contamination. There are going to be four books in this series and the next three will be full length novels.

Hurry and get your copy of Germination. You will not be disappointed.

To purchase Germination, or for more information, make sure to check out Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Jamie Thornton’s website.
