Editorial Reviews


Listed by the Huffington Post as one of the Best Zombie Books!

Included on Suspense Magazine's "Best of 2013" list!

"100 Days in Deadland is a stunning exploration of the human spirit: survival and greed, good and evil...a microcosm of today's society wrapped up in a dystopian novel. Rachel Aukes has written a modern take on a classic. I for one, cannot wait for her next book." ~ Suspense Magazine

"Another great zombie survival book made its way to our hungry brains! The book never slows down, the events are unpredictable and the characters are well built.... So go get the book, you'll love this one!" ~ Zombie-Guide Magazine

"This book is 5 stars all the way. It is unlike any zombie or apocalyptic story I have ever read... 100 Days in Deadland doesn't just tell a story about zombies, it tells a story about a person's struggle to survival in a world that has fallen apart and how that person grows and changes through it all."~ Horror Web

"A great read about survival in an undead world." ~ Buy Zombie

From the Author

100 Days in Deadland is set in near-future Midwest America decimated by a zombie plague. In this story, our heroine--Cash, an office worker--is forced on a journey through hell that echoes the one Dante took in the "Inferno," the first poem in Dante Alighieri's epic medieval tale, The Divine Comedy. In this tale, Cash must survive the nine circles of hell...reimagined zombie apocalypse style. 

I'm now writing the final installment of the Deadland Saga. Deadland Rising covers "Paradiso" from Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. In this tale, Cash comes up against the seven virtues. Release date is expected early 2015.

What a great way to introduce zombies! My favorite part of this book is the main character. She goes through hell (literally and figuratively) but chooses to be a different person, even going so far as to change her name to a nickname that Clutch gives her. Cash is a new person and she decides that this new persona is a survivor, not a victim.

My initial reaction was one of great love! There is some serious horror in this! And I DO love horror! And blood and guts!! YAY! Now, I know that some people are getting sick of the whole zombie thing, and maybe it is being over written a little, BUT I think it depends on the author. In this case I think Rachel Aukes did a fantastic job. Straight out of the gate you're thrown into the opening of hell and Mia (Cash) has to think on her feet to survive. It's one of the few zombie books that I've read where they don't have a plan or something set up, or some way out at the beginning of the mess. She had to go through killing people that were attacking her and not having a clue that she wasn't actually killing people, that they were zombies!

The emotional trauma and in return, strength that builds is amazing, and I would want to say that I would be like Cash. I don't know, maybe I'm too girly to survive, but I do know that I could see myself in her and that's a win in my book (ha pun intended!).

The one downside that I had is that I think there could have been more to match the chapters to Dante's Inferno. Some hit dead on but early on in the book I was at the chapter for Lust and I was yeah, heck yeah horror and sex! Not so much... to my chagrin. But it was still pretty good and I did really enjoy the writing. I just love when an author can come out with some real horror. The kind that makes me wish my hubby was home to protect me! And Rachel did just that :D

Three stars earned for:
1. A generally relatable female lead character.
2. A Max Brooks-species zombie-fest of Zeds.
3. Excellent opening stanzas.
4. Smooth and well-crafted writing - a lot of editorial attention was evident throughout.
5. Credible geographic and locational scene-setting.
6. Fast-paced action scenes - especially in the first half of the work.

Two stars off for:
1. A lead character who describes everything but never really reveals what she's thinking in any great depth or detail. (In reality she'd be brooding and reflecting like crazy about her situation and the future.)
2. Oh no! Not yet another gung-ho Special Forces side-kick. Heavens to Betsy! How many more of these guys are there in zombie novels? Why couldn't the second banana be just an ordinary average Joe for once? Sorry...but Clutch is nothing but a be-whiskered, tired PTSD cliche.
3. A Readers Digest Condensed "let's wrap this up a-sap" ending. It was almost as though the writer had got bored or run out of time or expired her total word budget for the project.
4. A less-than-gritty approach to combat description. Sure, Zeds get their faces chopped off with machetes but too often these events are covered as if Cash is casually going back to the Soft-Serve maker for another helping.

Overall you'll like blitzing through this neat wee story with its inviting page-turning momentum - provided you keep your expectations within bounds. Other than that, there's nothing particularly memorable and you'll probably read it only once.

Value-for-money versus its modest price? Unquestionably Yes.

I loved this book! I’m not a big ZA book reader – Stephen King is my usual go-to for horror and other than a short story by him and “I Am Legend,” as far as I can remember, I’ve not read another ZA book. 100 Days in Deadland got me hooked right away and keep me there to the end. Some reviewers complained about it not being original in zombie lore, but…really…how original can you get??? They’re zombies: they reek, they crave human flesh, a head-shot or head chop kills them & they infect you with a bite? These are all expected, right??? How are you supposed to change it up? (And ask Stephenie Meyer how much people complain when you DO change up the lore…sheesh…people just want to have something to complain about…) In “I Am Legend” & “World War Z” (film) the zombies are fast (as a change) which definitely ups the suspense & I have liked that formula. The other gripe was the “tired Army/Special Forces guy as a side-kick” complaint. Since I don’t read much ZA, it’ wasn’t tired or worn thin to me. And because I am an Army vet I actually kind of liked it. I think it made their survival & their actions more plausible than just dumb luck. I do think the author could have explained the acronyms or military lingo a little better for those who are not familiar but that would be my only suggestion. I really enjoyed this book & stayed up WAY (!!!!) past my bed time because I couldn’t put it down. I’m really looking forward to the next book!

Format: Paperback
100 Days in Deadland introduces the reader to a young woman living in Des Moines, Iowa who is thrust into the start of the zombie apocalypse within the very first paragraph. The story starts out with a bang, with Cash (a nickname she is given early on in the story) getting attacked by a woman who has gotten infected in her office. She narrowly escapes the assault and flees with another co-worker as everyone around them goes mad-either with infection or panic. While the duo race from the office they realize that the entire world is rapidly being consumed by the living dead and there is little hope that they will find anyplace safe. Narrowly escaping from another harrowing assault on the highway, Cash manages to hook up with an over-the-road truck driver nicknamed Clutch, who reluctantly takes her out of the city to the farm in the Iowa countryside where he lives.
Despite her efforts to appeal to his sympathetic side, Clutch isn't too interested in lending long term shelter to Cash, who he believes, like many city dwellers, has very few real survival skills. She is just another mouth he will have to feed and protect when his main focus should be doing his best to survive on his own. But Cash is determined to prove to Clutch that she can stand on her own two feet and deal with both the undead and every other hardship that comes her way.
100 Days in Deadland tells the story of Cash's journey through the nine circles of hell and her efforts to keep her mind and her body intact, no matter how many nightmares this new world throws at her. The author makes it clear that this tale is her translation of the first poem in Dante's Divine comedy, as seen through the eyes of a zombie apocalypse survivor.
