Now there are 3 levels of zombies or undead they like that better then zombies

level 1looks like everyone else and just wants to live with the living.

level 2 orange teeth and pale skin only attack when provoked

level 3 The strongest of all the undead but not always the smartest harder to take down though.

if you fight a zombie you half to hit them in the head then they drop down dead .

They get their power from the ground so you most likely see them in subways and sewers barely ever on the roof tops.


In Ponti's breezy and adventure-driven story, readers follow Molly and the Omegas as they connect the dots between the explosion, Little Women, the Dewey Decimal System and the Periodic Table of Elements. It works. Ponti incorporates New York City sights and gory zombie descriptions in a quick transit to an exciting finale with high-blown dramatics and a surprisingly tender moment. A fast-paced read for those who like their zombies with just a little fright.
