The Dead Years by Jeff Olah
The End of the World was Only the Beginning. What would YOU do… How would YOU react?
“This is the best serial I have read since the Green Mile.”
Mason wasn’t prepared when the devastation began that afternoon. No one was. He now needed to get to his family before the infection did.
No one knew how or where the end of the world started.
“Filled with Great Details that were Creepy and Awesomely Descriptive!”
The infection took hold quickly and destroyed everything in its path. Millions perished every hour. For those who survived the initial outbreak, finding a safe haven would prove to be a battle all its own.
Mason ventures out in hopes of obtaining the supplies needed for his family’s journey into the unknown. He soon finds out that this decision may well lead to his own demise.
Our group of survivors will come to realize that the Feeders are not the only thing to worry about in this new world.
“This Book is INTENSE, COMPELLING, FAST PACED and CAPTURES your interest in EVERY WORD!”
In THRESHOLD you will be introduced to the main characters as they fight the ravenous creatures trying to devour them and each other.
Humans will prove to be just as much of a threat as the infected.
Waking Up Dead (End of Days Love) by Emma Shortt
You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.
Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south.
Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.
(This isn’t a typical zombie book. It’s more of an “undead” book.)
A Beautiful Dead by Daryl Banner
*BOOK ONE IN THE BEAUTIFUL DEAD TRILOGY*
In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible.
So why is she so bent on destroying it all?
After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again.
But none of that matters in comparison to an even bigger problem. There’s a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run … a man with a heartbeat.
Hand of Chaos by J. Hamlet
Exhausted, cynical, and confused, Anna is always there to report for duty. She’s part of a clandestine government team that defends the nation against supernatural terrorism—a job that understandably leaves her life in shambles and drives her to drink a little more than she should. Toss in a fear of intimacy with a desire to have friends and lovers like a normal person and, well, Anna is a troubled soul wrapped in a special agent with arcane, magical powers. Waking up hungover at five-thirty in the morning with a zombie-infested apartment building in the heart of DC to deal with, she knows she’s got the makings of the worst morning possible.
Her team is its own challenge. A battle-scarred Nigerian shaman, a bookish shape-shifter, an inept summoner, and a brilliant but cantankerous wizard round it all out. Her partner, an immortal and cursed Paladin, is the only person she knows more jaded than herself. Getting them all to work together is never easy, with Anna often caught in the cross fire.
Their target, Ethan Morgan, is one pissed off necromancer. His brother was KIA by his own government, the victim of an experimental magical weapon they decided to test on the battlefield. Now bent on revenge and sponsored by one of hell’s most powerful demons, Ethan has a plan of his own to make us all pay. Anna and her team are fighting against the wake of destruction, but Ethan is always one step ahead. With the number of bodies he leaves and reanimates growing exponentially, Anna’s wondering if they’ll stop him before he engulfs everyone in an undead horde.
Proving once again that revenge is best served cold, usually with reanimated corpses, J. Hamlet’s genre bender is the kind of seat-of-your-pants thriller that changes your view of what is possible in literature. This jaunt into a dark reflection of our world of the blends dark fantasy and surreal horror with a spy thriller to create an extraordinary new genre all its own, riding the rails at breakneck speed as heaven and hell throw out every villainous creature they can. Hand of Chaos is a no-holds-barred action fest full of imaginative horrors and inspired satire.
Prepped by Justin Osborne
Dave Moore has been awaiting the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ for most of his life, now that it appears to have begin, it’s time for him to get ‘prepped’…
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.
