Mixing horror with science fiction, this is the introductory novel in a series which recounts the eerily gruesome tale of an ordinary family of four who journey into an apocalyptic world which is anything but ordinary. Forced from their home by a plague of the undead, they battle their way south through hordes of zombies and a strange mix of maniacal humans, all seemingly bent on their ultimate demise. As they fend off the living and the dead in their quest for safety, security, and survival, and as run-ins with zombies, cannibals, snipers, and pirates become more prevalent and vicious, they become more callous in their methods of exterminating the threats that constantly surround them. Even as they are befriended by certain groups of survivors along the way, their fears, and suspicions, whether real or imaged, keep them on their southerly trek, always searching for a safe haven in the midst of a world that few will find survivable. In the end, as hopelessness begins to overtake them, only their strong will to live, and their resolve to go down fighting, keeps them alive long enough for an unseen and unlikely ally to intervene, casting a new light on their ultimate ending, and sending them into a horrific place that no human would ever want to go.

I haven’t reviewed this book but found it on Amazon; thought it looked different, mixing horror & S/F.





The people that tried to kill the world were fiendishly clever. After decades of planning, the contagion was unleashed and overnight hundreds of millions died and came back as rampaging, undead monsters. The living that had been lucky enough to survive the first day of carnage, lucky enough to be in the right place and lucky enough that some of them had the skills they needed, soon found out there was much more to worry about than just zombies. In the high desert on the outskirts of Reno, there is an old truck stop frequented by a mix of hard caliber truckers, day tourists, musicians and travelers. They have survived the chaotic first hours of contact with the undead and now must make their way across the country to a location they believe is safe. Zombies are only the beginning of their troubles as they try to cover the thousands of miles of open road with their hastily armored 18-wheelers. Gunny, a long haul trucker doing one of the few jobs available to him as a disgraced soldier, is unwillingly saddled with the job of getting these survivors to the safe zone. With a motley crew of truck drivers, college kids, veterans, a drug dealer and a rock star, they are racing the clock to make it before time runs out. The last text he had received from his wife before the cell towers went down told him she was trapped in a high-rise in downtown Atlanta and their son was in detention, stranded in the basement of the school he attended. Gunny just wanted to drop the hammer, steal some guns and blast his way in to rescue them but duty called. He had to get these people to safety first, then he could recruit the best of this crew to help him save his family. If they survived the journey.

Rise of the Dead is a zombie novel with a lot of guts that aims for the brain, blending literary fiction with post-apocalyptic thrills. 

Blake was never one for taking chances. He lived in a world of formulas and equations. A statistician in a controlled society where everything had become predictably mundane. That world disappeared the day the dead got up and began attacking the living. 

Now, the end is here. Blake finds himself fighting for his life in a world that is rapidly spiraling out of control. He struggles to keep himself alive and must risk everything to find his family.

Along the way, Blake finds himself thrust among other unlikely survivors. Together they must adapt to the realities of the undead world, or join the legion of zombies. The characters must overcome their conditioned human apathy and come together if they have any chance of survival.  

Rise of the Dead chronicles the first moments of the zombie apocalypse. While the story is a fast-paced thrill ride through an ever-growing zombie horde, the novel aims to draw upon familiar themes as those found in the Romero classic films. 

I haven’t reviewed this book but thought it looked good. Great recommendation from one reviewer -*Best New Zombie Books of 2016″ -Rankingsquad.com, March 2016

Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang…but a bite.
