Dead Tide is a tale of a few protagonists. Its format is a little bit different than what I'm used to, and took a little time to adjust between the short chapters. But it was well worth the price! Stephen paints a vivid picture of his characters and their environment. This is one of the most professionally written zombie novels that I have ever read. This author has a new fan, one that is eagerly waiting for the sequel.

I recommend this book to all!

Enjoy!

I broke a promise I made never to chance another book from this publisher...I am glad to have broken that promise. Seeing Travis Adkins listed as the editor removed some hesitation right away. That being said, Dead Tide is a huge novel, encompassing all the key elements of a great story.

There are plenty of well defined characters, each offering up a different point of view on the zombie outbreak, as it goes down in Florida. I was put off by a few of these people at first, until I realized it was just the result of really good writing. I have finally been able to get pulled into a story and react to it like a participant instead of an observer.

Good writing is about confidence, with the author trying to say, "trust me, I know where we're going." I found it easy to buy into to what Stephen North wrote, his writing style is crisp and to the point and the "present tense" style he uses in this book helps to grip the reader with a refreshing simplicity.

I did find the large number of plot-lines to be a bit confusing at first. Going from one character to another, almost with the turn of each page, was hard to follow. On the flip-side, once I got into the heart of the book I was rewarded with some gripping reading; at times I was even hesitant to put it down, for fear of missing what happened next.

For all you zombie "purists", this work feels more like a combination of zombies & disaster survival, but there is plenty of undead content to go around. It serves as a strong base for a second volume...which I am eagerly anticipating.

Thanks Mr. North, you have given me hope.

It's great to see new life breathed into Dead Tide. This is a fast-paced and claustrophobic account of a Florida peninsula under siege by the walking dead. Solid characterization and lots of action. The tide of undead is back and stronger than ever!

I received this book as an advance review copy from the author: I'm a little late to the table on this one, but I am so glad I ordered a copy. North is rapidly rising up on my must read list. I recommend this one to everyone looking for a damn fine zombie tale. Trust me, you'll dig it!

Format: Paperback
Quick short chapters made for a book that was hard to put down. The multiple points of view made it feel like a story that was taking place over an entire area instead of a single point (example: a farm house). There were different groups of different people, not everyone has the same world view or morals. Each has a different idea for getting out of town and strategy for surviving. I enjoyed being able to follow out these other paths. I was lucky to find this story after the second was written so reading them back to back was a definite bonus. There is only one question that I have. When is DT3 coming out?
