Editorial Reviews

Review

Dead Tide 2 is even more of a whirlwind of adrenaline fueled zombie terror than its predecessor.  
--patrickdorazio.com/author/patrickdorazio/page/6/

From the Author

I have served and observed humanity for over thirty years and have seen first hand the best and the worst we can be.  This sequel continues where the novel Dead Tide left off, and follows the lives and experiences of a number of survivors of the 'Zompocalypse' in a nearly lawless world shrouded in shades of gray. 
Hope to get started on the third installment in the Dead Tide series:  The Last Wave, soon.

More About the Author

Stephen A. North is a Florida native. He has a BA in English Literature from USF. He served in the Army Reserve as a military policeman from 12/84 to 12/90. His first 'real' job was making camera bellows when he was sixteen. From there he worked in the fast food industry, a book store, then three major retailers. He's also worked in a print shop.

His favorite hobbies have always been listening to music and reading books. For the moment his writing is in the Science Fiction and Horror genres, but there are plans to branch out.

Dead Tide and Dead Tide Rising are available in all formats, and Dead Tide Surge, the third book in the series, is complete and waiting on the editor.

Current project is re-releasing Beneath the Mask and Drifter with Permuted Press.

Another great read indeed! My only complaint is that I was left hanging yet again wondering if our heroes are going to make it some place safe. Keep writing and hurry with the next book!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 22, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
In the first book, the focus seemed to be more on the police officers forced to choose between helping the citizens of their city and assisting the politicians in their attempt to escape via a luxury ship, although other storylines included both civilians and soldiers, and the controversial orders given to the military to ensure that the outbreak is contained. In the second book, it becomes obvious that the worst is yet to come when the characters meet monsters worse than the zombies.

The series continues to divulge more about the background of the surviving characters, revealing their own individual experiences within the same outbreak area. The human strengths and weaknesses are more than plausible, with North giving extra attention to the details this time around. Many people behave egotistically, but it's those moments when someone chooses to do the right thing, even when it's the hardest thing to do, that really creates a strong bond between the survivors and the reader.

I can't wait for the third book!

I enjoyed this post apocalyptic tale alot more than I liked part 1. The characters are great and the story is a little but easier to follow. My only complaint is how abruptly the story comes to an end. It almost feels like the author suddenly stopped writing and forgot to finish the book. Regardless, I recommend this book to lovers if zombie stories.

Same as the previous book. Still feels complicated. A good read but not great. I enjoy more of the prep and survival of the characters. However seeing the dark side of people is a bit of a change from other zombie books

Stephen A. North knows his zombies. With his original book, Beneath the Mask, he showed himself quite capable of crafting a top-notch story in a genre that is filled with lesser efforts. Filled with characters that are interesting and relatable, and set pieces that are, at times, unnerving, Dead Tide Rising continues to deliver more of what made the previous books so good.

The Tampa, Florida based story continues to engage me, and while some have criticized the rapid jumping back and forth between characters as being difficult to follow, I find it adds greatly to the feeling of desperation that permeates the story. The short chapters contribute further to the edge-of-your-seat feel and this book moves along at a brisk pace, enticing you to turn to the next page as quickly as possible to see what happens next.

While no book can be everyone's cup of tea, I am happy to be drinking deeply from this one, and look forward to the next cup full whenever Mr. North has it brewed to bone-chilling perfection!

I've read Drifter, Dead Tide, and now Dead Tide Rising. I have to say, I'm a little disappointed...because he's better than me. His voice keeps on getting stronger, and he writes with such great pace you can't help but be pulled along by the (chortle) tide.

Stephen's a cracking writer. This is one of the most enjoyable yarns I've read this year. I just hope he writes some more, and gets the recognition he deserves, because he's really, really very good.

I loved the way Stephen North wrote Dead Tide 1 & Dead Tide 2 books. As each character is introduced you learn more and more about them. The way this story is written is very unique and an original idea. The book catches you from the beginning and you cannot put it down.

My favorite character is Trish she has an interesting encounter with a zombie that will disgust you but also make you laugh a little. The book is everything you crave from an awesome zombie novel. Go out and buy it now and you will not be disappointed. The story just keeps getting better. Any hints on Dead Tide 3?
