FIRST TO THE GRAVE • Zombie Apocalypse Novel

All Rights Reserved ©


As an unidentified virus ravages the country, Mikayla Simmons is desperate to locate her sister Ahbey so that they can meet their Mother in Westgate and be free of the infection. And Mikayla has to worry not just about Ahbey's whereabouts, but also about the constant horrors that surround her, atrocities that she has been forced to accept as her new life. Because aside from the infected, who are mutating into insane decaying cannibals, she has other enemies to contend with. They're not infected with the virus, but they're festering from the inside out, taking advantage of the law's abolition. Even if the unfolding catastrophe awakens a man's biologically hard-wired survival instinct, it won't prevent everyone from being thrown first to the grave. Life has now become a battle to outlive the people who are now driven by power, betrayal, greed and lust. And Mikayla is thrown into a predicament where her morals are put to the test, and every decision she makes could decide the fate of those she loves most. What if Ahbey's long gone? And what about Westgate? Will she even make it? Please be warned that some content might be upsetting for some readers. (This is the first draft and is still housing errors. It will undergo revisions upon its completion)

Author’s Note

Hi guys! So, this is my very first zombie apocalyptic story. I’m so excited to share this with you. I’ve always loved zombies- watching them in movies or just about reading them! And it inspired me to create this which hopefully, will leave you hanging onto the very edge of your seat you’re currently sitting on—and if you’re in bed well, the edge of your mattress. Happy?

Anyways, jokes aside, I hope you enjoy reading this one hell of a ride of an adventure as I did when I was writing it. So I won’t take this any longer than it is, Happy Reading!

P.S. If you just feel like it, let me know what your favorite zombie movie is in the comments. If you liked the chapter, vote and all that biz. Thanks, xx.
