A Beta Before an Alpha by Summer Richards
If you’ve read A Beta Before an Alpha by Summer Richards, you know that the protagonist is not a typical male. She is more like a country singer with a soft and pleading voice. Throughout the book, she must deal with a variety of people – from the Alpha to the Whisperer – who will try to manipulate her. The outcome is a climactic scene where the Alpha tries to convince the Beta that she’s not a woman, and the two of them fight.
“Beta Before an Alpha” is the second book in the ‘Aristocrats’ series. It starts with a group of Whisperers challenging the Alpha for his leadership position. In the early chapters, the Alpha questions the loyalty of Beta, and Dee, the twosister who has taken over the leadership role, tries to convince him that she and her daughter are not out to hurt him. She convinces him otherwise, and the twosisters go off to the gallery to gather more walkers.
The group of survivors known as Whisperers was made up of three survivors. Dee became Alpha’s second-in-command and Beta took her place. She made an unlikely bond with the Alpha, but he insisted they stay. He was furious with the two women, but she convinced him to let them stay, and he invited them to Lydia’s side of the hospital. Lydia had a zombified friend who was the Alpha’s best friend, and Lydia was frightened of losing him. Beta took Lydia’s shirt in honor of her friend, and hid her identity with it.
After a heartbreaking episode in which the Alpha dies, Beta finds himself wandering in his room, and becomes angry and irrational. He refuses to acknowledge his friend’s death, and gets punished by the Whisperer. He tries to kill him, but Lydia arrives just in time. Beta lifts the mask to look at the face of his deceased friend. Lydia recognizes him and chuckles, giving him a knife.
Richard had a stack of books to read during the summer break. He wanted to read stuff that would wipe the memories of his eighth-grade drama away. Back then, girls went steady with dopes with greased hair and turned up their noses at guys who read. Summer was his time to escape and read a book that would help him forget about the drama of the past year. The Whisperer is a fantastic summer read for any man who needs a little adventure.

The series begins with a character known only as Negan. While the Alpha tries to kill Negan, he is in danger of killing himself first. The Beta, however, views Negan as a threat and despises him. The first time we see Negan, he bites the head of his old Alpha and throws it to the ground. But after he dies, the Alpha reanimates his head and tries to kill him.
After the attack on Alexandria, the group tries to track down the horde. They discover Negan’s hideout, and they escape. Eventually, they reach the safe zone, where Negan is hiding. After the attack, the horde follows the group. While the survivors retreat, the horde follows. Daryl and Lydia encounter the Alpha. During the attack, Negan kills the Alpha, but the Beta is left in a weak position.
In the comics, Negan is an Alpha before he becomes a beta. However, the mid-season premiere episode moved away from this relationship and focused more on the Alpha’s relationship with Negan. Although the Alpha doesn’t buy Negan’s potential trouble with Gamma, he does give her a disguise. The Alpha doesn’t believe in this, but she changes her mind when her beta reports her missing.

She also likes to listen to music and to draw.
Compared to other stories about a young girl, Tales of the Walking Dead’s version of Alpha is completely different. While promotional stills show her with a long and flowing hair, the trailer shows a bald-headed woman with no hair. This young girl is presumed to be Alpha’s friend and learns how to survive among the zombies. In the end, however, Alpha is left scabbed and covered in blood.
