Fifteen-year-old James would much rather hang with friends than go hunting with his survivalist dad. But the boring weekend trip turns into a living horror when they're attacked by an undead horde. Terrified and confused, James has no choice but to escape with his trusty dog through a forest stained with blood…

Teaming up with his best friend, James frantically fights his way back to his missing family. But on a trail of clues littered with corpses, reaching his loved ones means venturing deeper into the deadly unknown…

Can James reunite with his family before he's consumed by a relentless pack of zombies?

The back door to the building is on the other side of the dumpster. It’s ajar. Blood trails out and around to the opposite side of the store.

As we approach, I notice bloody hand prints around the door handle and wall. Not what I wanted to see. We could stop, get back to the truck, and make for the next station, but it could be just as bad, or worse, we could run out of gas and get stranded out here.

We’re here, and haven’t seen any chasers roaming around. We just need to keep our eyes peeled and ears open.

“Stay close,” I quietly speak to Duke.

  5. You'd think out hunting with your survivalist dad would be a good position to be in when the zombie apocalypse strikes, but...no?

    1. There are many ups and downs the Main character faces. He finds out that you can never really be prepared for such an event.

    1. I LOVE the cover. In fact, all of the covers for the Dead State series bring the same grittiness and appeal as Fallout.

      I have had other readers tell me the same thing that the cover and even story line reminds them of the Fallout game.

      I hope you'll give it a read! :)
