More About the Author

Daniel J Williams grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. Some of his favorite activities as a kid included scaring the bejesus out of kids on Halloween, terrorizing neighbors playing doorbell-ditch, and excelling in the ultimate sport of Dodgeball. He somehow managed to score a business degree and wasted years toiling in the business world, writing technical sheets and marketing materials.

He finally realized what was missing in his life: Zombies! Spending several years working on his breakthrough novel, Mace of the Apocalypse, he then couldn't help himself and penned three more novels with the same characters in a continuation of the story.

The Mace of the Apocalypse series spans the beginning of a zombie outbreak in San Francisco to its ultimate conclusion in San Antonio, TX. It can be purchased through

"The Value of Jade" picks up where "Mace of the Apocalypse" left off. Mace, Jade, and company are trying to make their way to Kansas to meet up with Sara and the Overland Park community, hoping for the fresh start and what they hope is the beginning to rebuilding society. Along the way, of course, they have to fight their way through the infected just to survive.

Just about everywhere they stop the infected are waiting for them to try and end their existence. One place they stop at is in Utah when one member of their group, Paul, wants to see the Mormon Tabernacle. Of course it's pointed out that they aren't there to `sightsee' but Paul insists and kind of bullies his way in to them stopping by pointing out they were there and most likely will never get the chance to see it again, besides he wants `his' family to see it as he had some relatives die in the massacre associated with the place. Mace and company agree and off they go for a horrifying event. What they see instead of a beautiful building is a building full of infected including the choir beating out ear shattering chords on the organ. What makes this even more horrible is that once religious people were turned into such demonic creatures...totally opposite of what they stood for while alive. Then while traveling through Wyoming they decide to pull over for a break only to turn down a street and encounter the street filled with children in costume just standing still watching them go by. What they end of finding when they investigate this bizarre event is a woman housing about 30 kids but she isn't just taking care of them she is also trying to turn them into psychotic cannibals.

Meanwhile Sara and her group are battling their own infected.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first. There were some supernatural elements thrown into the mix that I didn't believe were needed in the story. Zombies are enough terror without the extra dimension of supernatural/alien elements. I felt that this was a novel to bridge into Book #3 of the Mace, Jade saga.

Daniel J. Williams has recreated the zombie apocalypse with his new series, Mace of the Apocalypse. In book two of this series, "Value of Jade" a few months have passed since terrorists had unleashed a deadly toxin into the air that has now spread throughout the world, creating zombies that feed off the flesh of those dubiously lucky enough to have survived. Jade is now pregnant, Mace has recovered from his injuries, and a small band of survivors are now undertaking the perilous journey from San Francisco to Overland Park, Kansas to join up with another group of survivors-all based on the hope that there WILL be survivors in Kansas. Jade is determined that they go based on her brief internet communication with Sarah Thompson, a woman she has never met. Sarah has had visions, and she sees a connection between Jade and humanity's survival.

Jade and her group must face the dangers of the unknown, crazed humans, and zombies that seem to be evolving into more sentient beings on their journey. The faces of their group will change. The threat to their survival grows with every passing mile, and they do not even know what they will find in Kansas. Who will survive? What will they find? What does Sarah's vision mean for Jade?

The imagery Daniel Williams creates is amazing! From the conditions of the landscape across the country to the mental stress and breakdown of survivors, I felt like I was riding along with Jade and her group. I can't wait until book three!

Oh no so it isn't so!! I read the first book of this series " Mace of the apocalypse", and was thrilled to know I finished just as this one was being released. The journey with Mace & Jade, along with the others I have come to know, and to laugh with, gasped out loud with,cried with, and even a few I think I would use for bait, has been a exciting one, one that now I have to wait till the next installment next year some time. *sigh*! Like I said in my first review for the first book, a zombie style lover I really have never been, apocalyptic yes, is right down my isle. But this series has brought my thoughts of zombie stories out from the darkness, to we're I can really sink my teeth into it! Only disappointment is I have to wait for the next one! But keep them coming! For a side note as much as I liked it, the evolution of the zombies I do have to agree from another review was something I felt was not needed. Keep thinking of if its not broken don't fix it. But the author alone knows where this journey will take us next, so with that said my bug out bag is ready, and I will continue with him!

The sequel to Mace of the Apocalypse. The journey is long. The odds of survival are low. Their greatest weapon is hope.

The minute I finished reading Mace of the Apocalypse and saw there was a sequel, I went directly to amazon and purchased it! For one I could not leave my friends alone for long. The Value of Jade by Daniel J Williams picks up right where Mace of the Apocalypse stops. Jade, Mace and their crew of survivors are on a cross country journey in hopes of finding sanctuary with Sarah and her husband in Kansas.

Along the way they face many struggles; and unimaginable loss. My heart went out to so many of the characters; but especially Bill. And the troop of children they find along they way. This book while still face paced, has its moments where it grabs your heart and rips it out. And the most frightening aspect of it all; well you'll just have to read to find out.

The Value of Jade; Book 2 in the Mace of the Apocalypse Series is Amazing, heartfelt and leaves you screaming for more. I know I was.
