Cobe and his brother Willem live in a post-apocalyptic village where it is a bad idea to be different or intelligent. They decide to run away, knowing if they are caught they will be hanged. They are joined by the Lawman and another outcast of the village, Trot. They are surprised to find the Lawman is on their side and wants to help them get to a better place to live.

On the way, they encounter various mutations caused by the multiple wars and natural events that occurred over the past thousand years.

Running parallel to this story is one about a former Nazi who developed cryogenic technology and builds a business by selling the promise of life after death to rich people. These are the "Cryers" of the title for reasons which will be explained in the book.

The two stories intersect when the Lawman needs to visit "Big Hole" (what he calls the buried cryogenic facility) to get supplies for their journey. They find the people who had been frozen a thousand years are not really human anymore. They are hungry.

This was an interesting start to what I hope will be a great new series. Cobe and Willem are brothers. They may live a thousand years in the future, but they act pretty much like teenage brothers we all know. They are funny and courageous. I hope we learn more about the Lawman's history because he seems to know a lot more than most of the people in this new world. The "Frozen Dead" referred to in the title are unlike any other zombies. They are intelligent, which makes them more dangerous. I hope it also makes them so arrogant that it leads to their downfall, but we'll find out the rest of their story over the course of the series.

Altogether, this is a very unique take on the zombie genre. I'm on to Book 2.

This has been one of my favorite post-apocalyptic fiction books. These characters, Cobe, Willam, Trot and Lawson the Lawman, really got under my skin. Every time they got the crap beaten out of them whether it was by the cryers, the bad guys or gals or by those scary arsed rollers, I was terrified for them. You will fall in love with these people along the way. Maybe even one of the Cryers too. I hope that there is going to be a continuation of this book, as it could very well carry on. Either way, it did have an ending and now I'm just hoping for another beginning....Please! Yep, I'd recommend this story and author.

Not my thing.Im not wild about dystopian fiction to begin with,I like the excitement of the apocalypse not the grind of the after. Still I thought the idea was interesting enough to give it a try, but it was just too dark for me. It starts right off with a miserable violent scenario and nasty characters and didnt improve significantly so I gave up pretty quickly.
Still if you dont mind that sort of thing it did seem creative and well written which is why I wanted to leave a review. I dont mind blood and gore, I love zombie books after all, but no torture please, and I like the monsters to be monsters, not other people.

I have to say I'm not sure how this book got so many good reviews. By the end you really don't know much about anyone or anything other than Trot the simpleton. The going was slow and painful and by the end i felt nothing for any of the characters. If the characters can illicit no feeling, no matter what the feeling, it's not a very good character. There's a part in the book where a character talked about writing books and composing music but that they would be no good because there was no human emotion behind them - that's exactly how i feel about this story.

by Stephen King. It starts pretty slow, but once it picks up it never stops. A distant hopeless future in which the strongest rule and nowhere is safe, a gunman and his companions stand tall. It is most certainly worthy of five stars, I was disappointed every time I had to put it down.

This book was something of a change from the usual post-apocalyptic zombie novel, even from those others positioned in a relatively distant future. I groaned inwardly at the tired ex-Nazi protagonist, a trope overused in suspense novels, but the character himself was much better executed and written than I initially expected. The other bad dudes verged on stereotypes to some extent, never quite managing, in the main, to transcend hackneyed vision of gluttonous and self-centred slobs. The one exception to this was the "Edna" character, who inexplicably had a deeper and more humane side after a point (spoiler, I don't want to give it away). The dark, dystopian society is standard fare, as is the chaos and references that pin everything from 'Alas Babylon' to 'Beyond Thunderdome'. One point I wish were better addressed was the character development: none really stood out, even after there was some belated expansion on back-stories and context. Relating to them in any real manner took a lot longer than I would have hoped, and yet there was some element of depth to them that saved them in the end, for the most part.

Need a sequel, though is most certainly set up for one. Needs also to see some sense that the world has more people in it and a greater sense of menace.
