    1. There's a fallacy floating around out there that a good enough book will appeal to everyone. Frankly, I don't buy that. I write stories that I want to read. Hive is one of those stories. It has bloodthirsty zombies, lots of action and a cast of interesting and thoroughly flawed characters. But I took a real chance with this one. I wanted to slide the reader right into the front seat, so I wrote it in first person, present tense. This was something new I'd never done before, and I also realized t [...]


    2. They are soulless killers, zombies or Zee for short in this story. They were called "The Volgoroth"It all began nearly two centuries ago the decline the human race began to regress. The powers that be then felt the need to start pumping a psychotropic substance into the water.Cells. Genetics. Evolution.The population reached a point of no return all hell broke loose they were divide across the land, some of the players and pushers were called Traders, Keepers and Prospectors. A group of mercenar [...]


    3. I’m pretty sure that I’ve said this before, probably on one of my opinionated articles on a Harry Shannon book, but the zombie subgenre is getting old. It surprises me how it just keeps on ticking without even a sign of it slowing down. The subgenre, in itself, is like a slumbering, moaning creature that should be dead but keeps on coming. A zombie of which you cannot shoot in the head, no matter how hard you try, and put an end to the whole thing.But saying such things makes me a hypocrite. [...]


    4. Outstanding post-apocalyptic novella. Looking forward to reading the second in the series when it becomes available.


    5. 'Hive' is a post apocalyptic zombie novella set a couple of hundred years post the extension level event which almost wiped out mankind - well the mankind we know it as today. A small band of survivors led by the ultra kick-a$$ Azina is sent on a mission into the outer cities to bring back a lost group of people called The Keepers of Knowledge, a new world brand of scholars/historians. Azina's band of mercenaries naturally stumbles across a hive of zee's (zombies) during their search and soon th [...]


    6. Okay, so here’s the thing. I bloody love zombies. Another thing – I seem to bloody love the writing of Griffin Hayes. Unfortunately, while there are many zombie books and films out there (both good and bad), I seem to have nearly exhausted the records of Hayes’ delightfully twisted and intriguing imagination, which distresses me, more than a little.This story is delightfully unique; not only is it set after the fact of the zombie apocalypse, unlike most which deal with the onset or outbrea [...]


    7. It’s a new post apocalyptic world out there. Chemicals dumped into the water to calm us had an opposite and monsterous effect, basically turning people into Zees (zombies). The time frame for this book is a couple hundred years after the apocalypse, and Azina is a mercenary on a rescue mission to find some missing Prospectors.In this beginning of this book it took me a few moments to catch my bearings and grasp the terminology. Mercs, Prospectors, Keepers, The Order… it is a lot to take in, [...]


    8. I love zombie fiction. When I heard about Hive, I really wanted to read it, and wasn't disappointed. Hive is set far into the future, which is far more appealing to me than zombie fic that takes place during the initial outbreak. I think it's more fun to imagine the lasting effects of the zombie apocalypse rather than read yet another version of how they come to be. (Not that there's anything wrong with that. I read those, too. I just love the world-building in apocalyptic tales.)I don't tend to [...]


    9. Azina is a mercenary, the no-nonsense female leader of a group of misfits who earn their living as hired guns. A group of ‘prospectors’, searching for the forgotten wealth of a planet struggling to rebuild two centuries after a zombie plague, have gone missing in a sealed bunker. Azina and her team of diverse mercenaries are assigned to find the small group. Once inside the bunker they stumble upon a buried city and things quickly turn chaotic. The city isn’t as deserted as they thought, a [...]


    10. Now here was an interesting concept a book 200 years AFTER the zombie apocalypse. This story is told in first person present, yet that suits this tale very well. It is told from the vantage point of the female leader of a team of mercenaries, who have been hired to rescue a group of 'prospectors' who have vanished while exploring a sealed bunker from the past. Penetrating into the bunker, they discover that the horrors of the past are still alive in deep places. Interestingly enough, the run and [...]


    11. To start off, I've read a lot of zombie fiction. I am a reviewer for Buy zombie dot c om and I have been sent a whack-load of zombies novels to review over the years. I have read a lot of the bad and a lot of the good parts of zombie literature and all I have to say is that not only does Hive stand in the good part of zombie-lit, but it stands-out with its unique spin on the genre.Hive is well-written. The author has a nice fluid style of writing that keeps the story moving at a break-neck pace. [...]


    12. Think of this: zombies who communicate like insects. Oh yeah, you read that right!! :P This book surprised me with how well-done it was. I was looking forward to reading it because it looked interesting, but one can never tell and it wouldn't be the first zombie book to crash and burn in utter failure. Not so here. We have a crew of mercenaries attempting to rescue some lost people in a complex that has been shut off for 200 years. Well the people who got lost disturbed the "hive," which is just [...]


    13. Clearly this novella is right up my alley. Action and zombies, and a tough female lead. The first novella is free and it has got me hooked enough that I plan on buying the 3-novella complete collection: .Dark tunnels, limited sized squad of "good guys" and millions of bad guys. I liked the writing, it flowed smoothly and was easy to read. The plot was very well put together as well. I did not see any editorial type errors that jumped out at me. Overall very well written thriller. Kind of like th [...]


    14. Hive is a refreshingly novel take on a clichéd sub-genre. Griffin Hayes incorporates a mysterious subterranean setting whose origins leave the reader guessing almost as much as the plot itself. Add to that a ragtag group of colorful mercenaries, insect-like zombies and outstanding prose, and you get a story that’s engaging from start to finish.


    15. Before I say anything else, I want to say thank-you again to Griffin Hayes for my copy of Hive.Hive is set in a post-apocalyptic world where its remaining survivors struggle to rise above the ruins left by the water-born disease that turn millions into the undead. Two-hundred years later and Sotercity is the place that man-kind now calls home.There's something for everyone. You got yourself a big brain? Join the Keepers of Knowledge. What's that you say? You're a greedy bastard? Become a Trader [...]


    16. A mercenary team are sent into an underground complex to find four missing workers who were on a salvage mission. As Azina's team go further in they discover a mall and living quarters where rich people hid from the zombie apocalypse. But the zombies found a way in and there are thousands waiting in the darkThis reminded me a bit of the Resident Evil film in places and it was a decent zombie read. As much as I love zombies, the books are pretty hit and miss these days and this is on the better s [...]


    17. Two centuries after the collapse of civilisation due to a zombie outbreak (contaminated water does the trick this time), it is believed that the "Zees" have long gone and the world can move on. A group of people known as the Keepers of Knowledge send out a search party to find and recover as much information that they can - unfortunately, they disappear so a group head by mercenary Azina heads into the long-lost city to find thembut it isn't as deserted as they first thoughI really did enjoy thi [...]


    18. My score 3 out of 5 - average/ok (not bad/not good)Meh, it was ok. Basically something has happened to the population turning them into zombies, (one bite and your turned) and this book is set is sometime after humanity thinks they have got rid of them all. This crew have been sent on a mission to find some people only to discover something worse. Like I say it was OK, but for me it's one of those stories I kind of felt like I'd missed something (I.e some things are mentioned but not really expl [...]


    19. -¿Comienzo del apocalipsis después del apocalipsis?.- Género. Novela corta.Lo que nos cuenta. Azina está al mando de un grupo de mercenarios contratados por los Guardianes del Conocimiento de Sotercity para encontrar a un pequeño grupo de Prospectores a cambio de una considerable cantidad de sal. Y es que han pasado ya más de doscientos años desde que la civilización cayó bajo el empuje de unas hordas sedientas de carne humana, y los supervivientes están empezando a crear una nueva soc [...]


    20. (Combined review of all 3 books, as I feel it was written as one book but split into three parts)I enjoyed this series! It has a slightly different view on the story, as the zombie invasion has already happened many years in the past. But of course it turns out that they zombies aren't gone for good, they were just buried in the hope no one would ever find them. The story has some interesting characters in it, and I liked that the zombies worked as a hive (hence the name of the books I suppose ; [...]


    21. Considering that this is a novella, I don't think that it was long enough for me to tell if I'm really going to like the overall story line. I read this in about an hour or so. It's about 80 pages long as a free eBook on Nook or Kindle, so the other stories in the series probably cost a few bucks.This is a mix of post-apocalyptic and zombie fiction. As in, it's set about two hundred years after the zombie apocalypse that almost wiped out humanity. The main characters are a group of mercenary/bou [...]


    22. Two hundred years after the planet was ravaged by millions of 'zees', humanity is struggling to rebuild. The Keepers of Knowledge seek out old world technology and when some of their prospectors go missing, they hire Azina and her band of mercenaries to search for them.A point comes where one can only stomach the same basic ideas of zombie literature before they get tired and look for something different. "Hive" a novella by Griffin Hayes is a fresh take on an over saturated genre. From the meth [...]


    23. This novella was so much better than I thought it would be. I’ve read quite a lot of zombie books the past year and with the exceptions of “Hollowland” by Amanda Hocking and “Solstice” by Donna Burgess, they’re all rather the same. “Hive” doesn’t add anything new to the zombie genre, but it’s well-written, a little different, terrifying, and in the span of eighty pages, I became quite attached to some of the characters. It’s definitely a worthwhile read and horror fans will [...]


    24. OMG!! WOW!! This book was OUTSTANDING!! The only bad thing was that it ended. It had zombies, blood, gore and lots more. It had me at the edge of my seat biting my nails with action and suspense!!This story was original in its genre, its not the typical zombie tale. The author came up with a wonderful original tale, zombie with a twist. I cannot wait to get the next book. You won't be able to help yourself fall in love and feel bad for Azina, one of the main characters. I won't spoil it for you, [...]


    25. An energetic, fun, fast-paced read with a couple of novel concepts for a zombie apocalypse thrown in for good measure, Hayes' novella is well worth an hour of any horror fan's time. I'm not normally an advocate of first person, present tense narration, but Hayes must be a good writer, because in this case I barely noticed the style he had chosen for his tale. I'll certainly be seeking out the two sequels to Hive, that together run about the length of a regular novel.3.5 Linked Zees for Hive.


    26. This was well written, fast paced and very enjoyable. It's quite a short story but there are plenty of good ideas packed in there. The world the mercenaries, and those with them, live in seeps through into the story and leaves you wanting to know more.The main story deals with them delving into an underground settlement which isn't half as quiet as it should be. The characters all feel solid and believable, as do the decisions they make along the way. Highly recommended, and I look forward to re [...]


    27. This is the first episode of the series, however it opens in the middle of a scene. Without a proper intro to the characters or setting it is a confusing beginning. I found myself rereading paragraphs trying to separate the back story from the current situation of the characters.Somewhere around 65% the back story begins to drop off leaving the main plot to unfold by itself.So do I recommend this book? YesDespite the confusing beginning this was an intriguing zombie read.


    28. Interesting take on Zombies. Not sure if I'll read the rest, but will definitely think about it. First person narrative of woman leading a group on the search for missing prospectors (I know, sounds like the old west, but its more like they are scavengers of things from a civilization that has fallen).


    29. Great take on the Zombie theme. It has action that pulls you in. The characters are likeable and the world is interesting. I enjoyed the fast pace and the way that information about the setting was given as the story progressed. It is an opening story so no real closure, but it does leave you eager to get the next one!


    30. I really liked the premis of this story. The fact that it is set well after the zombiefication of the world was a refreshing change from a lot of other zombie books I have read. I am looking forward to the next instalment of the story. I was disappointed in the ending. seemed very rushed to me.
