Book Description

Amazon Bestseller, Voted best Zombie/Horror E-books of 2012 on Goodreads

'Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde' is everything the blurb promises it to be, and much, much more! A tale of despair and sacrifice, small precious victories, farewells and reunions, and subtle spirituality, "Zombie Attack: Rise of the Horde" is a book I would highly recommend to readers looking for an enormously thrilling story with a degree of depth to it. As the book ends with a bit of a cliff hanger, I sincerely hope that we'll soon see more books from this brilliant author."

Books for Tomorrow, 5 of 5 star review

"Whoa! This book is a super exciting fast paced trip! I enjoyed it greatly. So will I be buying the next book? Hell yes I will. Without a doubt!"

Contagious Reads, Lori

"An excellent composition of prose, action, dialogue and foreshadowing is Rise of The Horde that is indicative of a well-seasoned story teller. Devan Sagliani's endeavor is tremendous in luring readers into anticipating more and more. Whether you're an avid reader or been bitten by the curiosity bug in zombielore, there's a little something for everyone in Rise of The Horde."

Horror News, Dave Gammon

"Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde by Devan Sagliani is the book you, your friends, and your kids (provided they like sweet gory violence) should be reading. I mean it. If I had sum it up... I would say, "What the hell are you still doing here? Why haven't you bought it yet?"

The Geekest

"Novice author Devan Sagliani breathes new life into a tired over indulgent genre. His concept of appealing to a mass audience is firmly grasped and unrelenting. Once delving into the narrative of this novella, the tale becomes infectious and downright addictive. Many avid readers will have difficulty putting it down." Rick Amortis, Hellnotes

When 16 year old Xander's older brother Moto left him at Vandenberg Airforce Base he only had one request - don't leave no matter what. But there was no way he could have known that one day zombies would gather into groups big enough to knock down walls and take out entire buildings full of people. That was before the rise of the horde!

Now Xander is on the run, fleeing south to Port Hueneme to locate his brother with nothing but his martial arts training and the katana blade left to him. Along the way he'll have to fight for his life against other survivors, neo-Nazi's, outlaw bikers, gang bangers, cannibals, cult members, and a seemingly endless sea of flesh hungry zombies.

But Xander is far from alone. Traveling with him are Benji, a 12 year old comic book geek, and Felicity Jane, a childhood celebrity with wild mood swings. Will they make it together in one piece to the safe zone or will they become the next meal for a hungry horde of wild zombies?

Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde is filled with pulse pounding undead action from the very first chapter up until the bitter sweet end. From rock stars and celebrities to false prophets and miracle workers, this book has it all! The story takes off like a bullet and doesn't slow down until the last sentence. You won't be able to put it down!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for any adolescent zombie enthusiast. As a former middle school/high schoolteacher, I know how difficult it can be to get young people to read. Many books just don’t hold their interest. Teen readers are too old for children’s books, but aren’t ready for full content adult books either.

Recently, great adolescent literature has emerged. Books like The Hunger Games and Divergence, not only draw young readers in, but also appeal to adult audiences. Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde is just such a book, interesting to adults and to young readers alike. The story will suck you in and you won’t want to put the book down!

The plot focuses around a heroic teen, Xander Macnamara who must cross dangerous territory in the post apocalypse world to be reunited with his military brother, Moto. Along the way, Xander, collaborates with other young travelers, twins Joel and Tom Parker, a young celebrity named Felicity Jane and his best friend Benji Jones.

What ensues is a wild roller coaster ride through the zombie infested world they live in.

The story is believable and the characters are well developed. Adult zombie lovers and adolescent readers will love this fast paced and heartfelt zombie tale.

You will love it no matter how old you are!

5.0 out of 5 stars winner Winner Chicken Dinner! October 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Straying from the usual plot of trying to create a stronghold and stand their ground, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde takes us on the road. Trying to get to his brothers military base, Xander picks up new comrades along the way. In Sagliani's world, where zombies aren't the only monsters roaming the streets, Xander and his friends face neo-Nazis, marauders, cults and other evils of a fallen society.

Where all it takes is a single bite, this group of misfits suffer the loss of loved ones, childhood idols, and each other. Xander, jaded and suspicious, displays instincts and common sense far beyond his years. Trained by his soldier half brother, Moto, Xander is skilled in martial arts and wields my favorite weapon...the katana. Unassuming Benji looks to Xander for direction like a lost puppy dog. Xander takes Benji under his wing, protecting him from the torments of man and zombie alike. These two fast friends come across teen actress Felicity Jane. Having fallen victim to the child actor stereotype of substance abuse, Felicity Jane manages to pull herself together and team up with Xander and Benji.

No zombie book would be complete without a few religious zealots. Sagliani manages to sneak in my favorite apocalyptic quote "the dead shall walk the earth because Hell is overflowing and there is no more room for them". And doesn't it just figure that during the apocalypse, the only things left airing on TV are The Jersey Shore and Jackass!?

Appropriate for the Young Adult masses it was written for, Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde balances the right amount of horror and emotion. Sagliani manages to pull out another winner. The characters were relatable and genuine. The story was fast-paced and unexpected. I love that Sagliani hints at the possibility of zombies having a hive mind and working together. read my entire review at [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done! July 15, 2012
By David
Format:Kindle Edition
Being a fan of films pertaining to the 'undead', I was pleased to pick up a copy of Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde, which did not disappoint. Immediately thrust into perhaps one of Xander's worst days ever, the story begins and doesn't relent as Devan Sagliani's keen sense of descriptiveness and human relationships helps craft a unique backdrop that brings the characters forward in three dimensions as well as forces a feeling of dread up my spine. Looking forward to the next installment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to the Last Bite July 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If it's about werewolves, demons or something dead that's come back to life and doesn't have Harry Potter or Stephen King somewhere on the cover, you probably won't find it on my Kindle Fire; things that slither and hiss just don't float my boat. So why on earth am I reading this book?

Well, it started as a request by author Devan Sagliani that I read his newest book, a follow-up to this one titled "Zombie Attack! Army of the Dead." I could download it free, he said, if I'd be willing to give it a review. Although the subject matter isn't quite my thing, I did some checking and learned that this one did very well here at in terms of sales and customer reviews.

Okay, I decided - I'm in. That said, when there's a series (even if it's only two books so far), I much prefer to start at the beginning - so I downloaded that one (free) as well and here we are. While I think the book probably is more suited to younger readers (make that <i>much</i> younger; I'm the only grandmothers I know who's devoured every single Potter book and wish that series hadn't come to an end), I enjoyed it so much that I won't hesitate to move on to the next one.

The story centers on 16-year-old Xander Macnamara, who is trying to find his half-brother Moto's military base in a world now occupied by hordes of zombies who are nearly impossible to kill and whose mission in life is to devour whatever living humans they can find. As Xander sets off, he befriends 12-year-old Benji, dragging him along on the journey. They, in turn, find a popular teenage actress Felicity Jane, who's hiding out with a burned-out rock star but wants to find her mother, who may or may not be alive.
