Book Description

"A fresh take on the genre..." - W.C. Hoffman, Author of Twins of Prey

"The perfect amount of gore and personal tragedy..." - Sally B.

"Pulls you in..." - Jay W.

BEN CHASE and his friend TY are fresh from teaching English in South Korea, and they’re on their way to experience the Big Island of Hawaii – but their vacation turns into a nightmare when two passengers unexpectedly die during their flight.

Desperate to recover their sense of excitement, they meet up with Ty’s friend Anuhea and her friend Charlotte, who Ben finds himself instantly attracted to. But their plans quickly unravel as a rampant infection hits the islands and they find themselves surrounded by flesh-eating monsters.

Law and order degenerates into a daring fight for survival, and Ben is faced with a critical decision that places the fate of his friends in his hands. And what he must do to save them is unthinkable…

Dead Islands will leave your skin crawling as you follow Ben and his friends’ terrifying encounter with the deadly Necrose-7A virus, and their desperate attempts to survive the doomed island paradise.


Dead Islands, a 36,000+ word novella, is the first book in the Necrose zombie apocalypse series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies in Paradise August 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
You can't say “Dead Islands” doesn't have action. From the opening scene in the streets of Shanghai, to a zombie attack in an airplane over the Pacific, to utter chaos in the Hawaiian Islands, “Dead Islands” keeps moving throughout.

Curiously, no one in the early part of the novel seems to be aware of the spate of zombie movies flooding the theaters these days. Everyone's like, “I never heard of such a thing.” That doesn't make the book bad, it just seems odd to me.

On the other hand, once the heroes land in Honolulu and get through the authorities, they kinda brush off the whole thing. They act like tangling with zombies is just an interruption of their mountain-climbing.

One of the toughest things to write believably is how normal people will react to abnormal, bizarre, or horrifying situations. Do they freak out? Do they shrug it off? The characters here seem to take it mostly in stride, considering how bizarre the situation is.

On thing that's nice, “Dead Islands” is set slightly into the future and makes reference to very recent events like the Russian involvement in the Crimea and Wikileaks. That gives it an up-to-the-minute feel, connecting real-world events to the horror of flesh-eating zombies.

However, I do not like the ending. Actually, it ends fine... except there's an extra chapter, set in Washington DC, tacked on after it! Though this chapter relates to the zombie apocalypse, it shows us new, unrelated characters. Even this might be OK if it had been labeled as a teaser or an epilog, but not another chapter. Still, it's not enough to ruin the good experience of reading “Dead Islands”.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Zombie Fiction September 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was super stoked to get my hands on this book after following Tim Moon's many adventures and finding similar tastes in literature via his reviews on Geeks Unleashed and Quest for Books. I have a paperback of this novel due to my Kickstarter Backery, and I just have to say in person the cover is awesome; it reminds me of a comic book.

And the book is awesome too: it is a very solid zombie novel. Dead Islands is written in such a way that the reader is fluidly pulled along the storyline itself without drawn-out development or side-happenings ever getting in the way. The romance lent a sweet element to the story, but didn't take it over - which I am sure would irk a lot of hardcore zombie readers if it had - but always stepped down to let survival take the trophy for the reader's attention.

It wasn't my favorite, but not because it was badly written or annoyed me but more because not every book can be not every reader's favorite - diversity, people - because 1. I'm a character-driven reader and 2. I don't do cliffhangers. In my opinion there is not a detailed account of Ben or Ty's backstory, and I like wrap-ups, even in series.

That being said, I thought Moon took some characters that don't exactly fit the mold of Every Zombie Novel Ever, who are living different (and exciting, even without the zombies) lives than everyone else, and developed a story that had a classic zombie feel; yet, felt modern and relatable due to the very recent real-world events that it incorporated.

Aside from a few personal reading quirks, I really dug Dead Islands and would definitely read the next book; I'd highly recommend it to you lovers of classic zombie fiction looking for something a bit more modern but holding onto all the elements y'all love.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining September 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a sucker for zombie stories of any kind. I Have been ever since birth, so it's no surprised that I really enjoyed reading this. Had the perfect amount of gore and personal tragedy poured in, for my taste anyway.

Dead Islands is set in Hawaii, two back packers have come her to vacation for adventure and perhaps a good looking girl or two. From the time Be and Ty get to Hawaii they encounter zombie attacks every turn and like most people they put it off as a weird disease, until they get to the big race with some pretty girls and see pandemonium first hand. They continually almost get their faces chewed off, but manage to try and save some people along the way.

I love gore, obviously not the stuff that is real and in my face but through a movie screen or in this case through book pages. From the beginning of the novel up until the end their is enough carnage to keep you satisfied for a while. I cant say if any of it was realistically graphic because I've never witnessed a human being devour another human, but it was certainly entertaining.

Sometimes the dialog was a little bit too convenient. I understand that sometimes the characters need to explain things to each other, but at times you could tell the explanations were solely for the readers benefit. It would have been better to just let us figure out things for ourselves one of my biggest pet peeves in reading is when the author hands things to you instead of you figuring it out, it makes me feel like the author doesn't trust me enough to figure things out for myself, malign the reading come down as a whole.

The novel is set in Hawaii but there were only a couple of times that the setting was described as such.

Great book. Really builds up the tension in a very believable and compelling way. One of the most plausible explanations of a zombie outbreak I have read. Definitely recommend.

Not too sure about this book. Interesting premise presented in the prologue but after that it seemed to become just a gratuitous blood and Gore zombie novel.
