Publisher's Summary

Young Danny Mitchell's life seems to be falling apart. First his father died, then his mother moved them away from his life in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to the small river town of Martins Ferry, Ohio. Yet when he finds his father's boyhood journal, things start looking up as he and some neighborhood kids begin exploring the haunts of his late father.

But Danny's life is about to get an even bigger shock. Barbas, one of The 88, has destructive plans for North America that will start in the Ohio Valley region, from Pittsburgh to Martins Ferry. Jealous of the other members of The 88 and hoping to unleash something worse than the rest, Barbas has brought Dr. Ramachandran into his confidence, an Indian scientist who conducted experiments on captured Pakistanis a decade ago and is now a hunted man. Together with Captain Merritt of The Black Hand, Barbas and Ramachandran release a mist that genetically alters humans at a physical level, changing them into strange human-insect hybrids that have the ability to spread this alteration to others.

As hordes of the changed victims spread across the Ohio Valley region and beyond, Danny and his friends, along with a few other unchanged people they meet along the way, struggle to maintain their humanity in a world gone weird.

    Story
    "Nice post apocalyptic adventure"

    This was a nice adventure although the pace was quite slow, narration helped keep it going and i would be interested to see how it proceeds.
    The main characters are i think spot on and very believable as is the inner goings on within the enemy camp.
    Could maybe have done with a little more action but as it is mostly kids i can see how the author brings it across.
    Narrator is new to me but did a good job on the different characters some almost seamlessly.
    Overall i found it a worthwhile listen especially if its on a deal or such.
    This audible was gifted to me and is based on my own honest opinion.

    Story
    "A wacky, zombie like, horror adventure"

    Transmutations is an entertaining, wacky, zombie like, horror adventure with quirky characters. Fans of movies like Shaun of the Dead, which is mentioned in this book, should get a kick out of this story. Be warned though, this is part of a series, so the story does not end at the end of the book. The narrator of the audio version does a very good job.

    I received a copy of this book as a gift. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    Story
    "Zombies in Mid-America"
    Would you listen to Transmutations again? Why?

    Yes. It's a great story even though it leaves off on a cliff-hanger that's a real bummer. (I HATE cliffhangers). Think Stranger Things meets The Walking Dead but with less blood and grownup nastiness.


    What other book might you compare Transmutations to and why?

    It's a light zombie story and although it doesn't bring to mind a particular book title, it does have a similar feel to the TV series Stranger Things with it's focus on a group of misfit kids and a villainous and obsessive military scientists.


    What does Andy Harrington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Harrington is a competent narrator whose reading style brings depth to the story and, like most audio books, you can listen when it isn't convenient to read.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The kid focus did provide a few smiles and chuckles. It's not a tear-jerker or a belly laugher, but it's certainly has it's scary and amusing moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a listen. I haven't checked to see if there's a sequel, but I'm going to be very disappointed if I never find out what happens.

    "A great book."

    Not your typical teen book. You will feel for the main characters and begin to understand what could happen in an essentially weird situation. Don't regret a moment.

    "A weird, wonderful and strange universe, jump in!!"

    more strange change is promised to be coming, and I cannot wait. This audiobook made me laugh out loud and I truly enjoyed it. I received this book free in a competition the author held, and I am so excited I got to hear this. Looking forward to read all his work!!!

    Story
    "Transmutations"

    Life as we know it is changing. Humans are being genetically altered into human-insect hybrids, but not everyone has been affected. There are pockets of unchanged humans, but can they survive?

    I enjoyed this story written by Ed Gosney and narrated by Andy Harrington.
