"Blood of the Dead
isn't what you think it is. Sure, it starts out as a zombie jamboree that drags you through Hell on Earth, but then it goes further . . . a lot further . . . and takes you straight to Hell and back again. This is the stuff of nightmares, boys and girls, with some unnerving and frightening action scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat and haunt your dreams." -- - Rick Hautala, author of The Wildman and Occasional Demons
"A satisfying addition to the ever-growing zombie subgenre . . . non-stop action and flesh-eating mayhem . . . Blood of the Dead
will be enjoyed by any zombie fan." -- - The Horror Fiction Review
"Frantically paced and never predictable, Blood of the Dead
takes the usual staples of the zombie-genre--blood, guts, guns and action--and mixes them with the bizarre to create a unique story. It's a formidable mix--think Night of the Living Dead
with a healthy dash of Dante's Inferno
! Fuchs leads his cast through a nightmare world filled with relentless pain, constant fear and never-ending waves of dead flesh, then takes them some place worse . . . You've never read a zombie story like this before!" -- - David Moody, author of the Autumn series
"Fuchs presents a hellish apocalypse underneath poisoned skies in Blood of the Dead
. Well drawn characters navigate the very edge of a meat grinder powered by Fuchs's twisted imagination. The Undead World Trilogy
looks to be a promising addition to the genre." -- - Gregory Solis, author of Rise and Walk
"Talented author A.P. Fuchs has woven a bloody tapestry out of human flesh, the dark ruins of a decimated earth and the raw fear and uncertainty of the few remaining survivors. Richly drawn characters face loss, isolation, hunger and, of course, hordes of the living dead in this post-apocalyptic gem. Zombie fans will do themselves well by picking up a copy of Blood of the Dead
. Scary, heartbreaking and imaginative, this book sits near the top of my very short list of zombie favorites. An absolute blast!" -- - Gina Ranalli, author of Chemical Gardens and Wall of Kiss
"Unrelenting and unnerving, Fuchs crafts an apocalyptic tale of empty humanity among a world overrun by the living dead. A world uniquely envisioned and vividly crafted by the imagination of A.P Fuchs. Blood of the Dead
offers a rich blend of guns and gore that is sure to please the most diehard of zombie fans." -- - Geoff Bough, Editor of Revenant Magazine
From the Back Cover
One year ago, the world came to an end.
First came the rain.
Then came the screams.
Then came the undead.
The Haven became the only place in the city free of the walking dead. A place of community. A place to be safe.
Now, things have changed.
The zombies are coming to the Haven, seeking out the remaining survivors of the human race.
Joe Bailey prowls the Haven's streets, taking them back from the undead, each kill one step closer to reclaiming a life once stolen from him. Billie Friday and Des Nottingham soon have Joe to thank for their lives.
As the dead push into the Haven, the trio is forced into the one place where folks fear to tread: the heart of the city, a place overrun with flesh-eating zombies.
They soon discover they are not the only humans there. After meeting an old man with a peculiar past, Joe and the others must make one last stand against the undead or unwillingly meet the same fate.
A desperate escape leads them to a place thought impossible to exist and to a discovery that will shake the future.
Welcome to the end of all things.
