Book Description

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

"...classic zombie feel; yet, felt modern and relatable..." - Allie Burke, Author of The Enchanters Series

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

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 This is part of a series! August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book via Story Cartel to give an honest review.
You know it is really hard to write a good zombie book. You have to make sure you have a lot of key points within the story being told. You have to have an awesome plot, the characters have to be written in a way of how they would be able to adapt to something so terrifying, you have to make it real feeling.
With Dead Islands I enjoyed the bit of mystery surrounding how zombies are happening. You have people having a cough and then it goes from there.
Ben and Ty are on an adventure to Hawaii but their trip is not all fun. It seems as though whatever has affected the people on the plane has now affected those on the island of Hawaii. But no one seems to understand or know how severe it all is.
I really enjoyed the build up of it all coming together but I never got the answer to what caused this to happen. The little information we did get makes me wonder if it was put out there by the government.
The way Ty seemed to act with everything going on just didn't click for me as how I would imagine. He wasn't freaking out but more along the lines of acting like maybe he was sick? You just have to read the book to find out. There is a lot of action within the book some of it a bit gory but nothing to severe.
Also the chapters of the book. The time really kept confusing me as it wasn't like 10:00 a.m. it was more of 1800, now I do know that others may have understood it but I didn't.
With the way the ending happened it wasn't much of a cliff hanger but it was enough to make you wonder exactly what else can go on. Where is this virus all happening at? The ending has new characters come into play just a F.Y.I.. And it seems there will be a second book. Which I would love to read to see if questions will be answered. I do hope there is more of a plot building and that the characters act real into the situation.

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.
