Review

"What Litore has done shows the path of where some of us creators are going; I call it the de-sanitisation of the gospel: a visceral, messy, human take on a message of a visceral and tangible hope." —Siku, author of The Manga Bible

“Saying Strangers in the Land is a zombie book is like saying that Pride and Prejudice is a romance novel instead of one of the most brilliant stories I’ve ever read. Is Strangers in the Land that good? YES … After I started reading this book, I realized the folly of my ways for not just innately KNOWING how good this book is. I wish Amazon could beam that information straight into my brain, because I took so much away from this book. It’ll stay with me for a very, very long time.” —Guerilla Wordfare

“One of those books I was clutching and just couldn't stop turning the pages. It's a dark, evil world the characters are stuck in - one of near unimaginable loss and suffering. At moments you feel like there is no hope for humanity, that this evil plague will be the end of the world as we know it. There is no safe place. You'll find yourself thinking what if? What if this was to happen now? Imagine fighting the zombies without modern day weapons or transportation. Talk about a nightmare! (cringe!) This well written book will stay in your head for days.” —Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife

“To say I loved this book would be an understatement. I could not put it down and felt my heart pounding against my ribcage as the characters raced across the land in an attempt to catch up with the hordes of unseeing and insatiable dead … I have no hesitation in giving Strangers in the Land five out of five stars and will certainly be reading the rest of the series in order to feed my insatiable hunger for more of Litore’s historical mashups.” —SeattlePI.com

"Beyond the rich historical background and the desperate fight for survival, Strangers in the Land is a story about otherness, what it means to be a 'stranger'... Far from being 'just another zombie book', it is a remarkably clear look at what it means to impose a system of inequality among a culture." —examiner.com

Customer Reviews

At no time did I sympathize or care about any of the main characters.
Jupi Reitsema
A love story, moral temptations, and cultures clashing all play prominent roles throughout "Strangers in the Land."
Ty Arthur
Along with the author's beautiful prose, it is her character that lifts this story above the usual zombie fare.

I'm currently in the middle of "31 Days of Horror" for October, where my wife and I exclusively read/watch/play media of a horror or thriller nature, so snatching this zombie gem up was a no brainer as soon as I saw it on Amazon, and I wasn't disappointed. The third in the "Zombie Bible" series by Stant Litore, "Strangers in the Land" takes the Biblical setting of the book of Judges and adds in herds of the walking dead for an engaging and entertaining story that's got the right mix of horror, drama, and fantasy.

Since this series uses the Bible for inspiration, it's worth mentioning how Christian believers might view the book and whether they'll want to be reading. The idea of adding zombies to the Bible might appear flippant (although there are actually zombies walking around in the book of Matthew), but the execution is quite serious, and this isn't anything tongue-in-cheek or humorous. There are two or three instances of profanity and of course quite a bit of extreme violence that might turn off Christian readers, but honestly none of it is really any worse than anything actually in the Bible itself.

The author has a very firm grasp of the Bible and the setting of Judges beyond just adding in appropriately Biblical sounding names or terms. The main character Devorah is clearly based on Deborah from Judges chapter 4, and certain elements and names from that story are woven in and used as inspiration, but this isn't a direct copy of that tale that just happens to feature zombies. People familiar with the Bible will notice interesting twists on phrases from that chapter of Judges, such as when Devorah tells the war leader Barak that the glory of battle won't be his.

I was very skeptical when I picked up Strangers in The Land. How can you "zombify" the Bible? I certainly wasn't expecting such fine writing, compelling characters, and enough gross zombie action to keep me glued to the page throughout this long, exciting, edge of your seat adventure. I didn't know that this was part of a series, but I didn't feel like I was at any disadvantage, especially after such a well thought out prologue that set the scene beautifully. By the time I arrived at chapter one, I felt ready to go, firmly in sync with the language and culture.

This is horror storytelling at its best, with far reaching good vs. evil implications, heroes with seemingly supernatural strength, and villains by the score. Devora is a compelling and inspiring lead character, guiding the reader through a dark, gruesome story by the light of her faith, and keeping us glued to the page by her flawed and very human nature. It's not often in horror fiction that I read a character that makes such an impression. Along with the author's beautiful prose, it is her character that lifts this story above the usual zombie fare.

I purchased the other books in this series immediately after finishing this one and can't wait to re-enter Stant Litore's world. The speed of light pacing, gruesome action, memorable characters and unique setting all mark this as a must read for any fan of literary horror.

I really, really wanted to love this book so it was very disheartening that I didn't. The premise sounded very interesting and definitely unique. I wanted to connect with the characters and be completely drawn into the story. Unfortunately, it just never clicked for me. It wasn't because of the religion aspect, although the character's lives revolved around their laws, the book wasn't preachy. The writing was obviously well researched and I enjoyed the author's style but ultimately this story left me cold. I didn't realize that this was the third book in series and I was impressed enough by the author that I'm going to seek out books one and two. Hopefully, after I read those, and then re-read this book, that something missing will click.

Stant Litore paints graphic pictures in your head. A dead landscape occupied primarily by the walking dead. Sounds of moaning and screaming. The shambling dead and the soon to be dead. The stench of blood, decay and ash. Burned out buildings, withered crops, small mountains of stones marking the fallen. Some dead once and some dead twice. This is the new Promised land in 1160 BC. Be careful what you wish for.

Come and inhabit the fertile imagination of Stant Litore. No one stands taller than the last man standing.

I loved this book. It had sort of a "The Dovekeepers" meets "The Walking Dead" feel to it. Each of the characters feel authentic and dimensional. The historical element is well-written. Also: very important for a zombie book- the action scenes were fast-paced and well written. Litore evokes zombie imagery while still staying literary in his descriptions.

I look forward to reading the rest of the series!

While I have not read the other books in Stant Litore's Zombie Bible series, I can't imagine how I would think more highly of them than I do of Strangers in the Land. Should anyone attempt to dismiss this as "merely a zombie book," they would be sadly mistaken. Even the more apt description of bible stories framed in the context of the hungry dead fails to fully capture the depth of this book. It is a profound work of staggering beauty, rife with themes of covenants kept and broken, painful separations between mothers and their children and the need to love those who are not like us...for the sake of all humanity.
