Description

Book 1 of the Deadland Saga - An Amazon best-seller! "A journey through Dante's Inferno with a shambling twist. " The world ended on a Thursday. In one day, the world succumbed to a pestilence that decimated the living. In its place rose a new species: vicious, gruesome, wandering zombies with an insatiable hunger for the living. There is no government. No shelter. No hope. Still in her twenties, Cash has watched her friends die, only to walk again. An office worker with few survival skills, she joins up with Clutch, a grizzled Army veteran with PTSD. Together, they flee the city and struggle through the nine circles of hell, with nothing but Clutch's military experience and Cash's determination to live. As they fight to survive in the zombie inferno, they quickly discover that nowhere is safe from the undead...or the living. 100 Days in Deadland is a journey through Dante Alighieri's classic tale on the horrors of hell... zombie apocalypse style! (The next book in the Deadland series, Deadland's Harvest, is coming in 2014.) Contains violence. For mature teens or older. (Print length: 457 pages)

Our customer reviews

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not much into zombies, but this was well done. Story: A lot of people have mentioned that there is nothing new with the story premise. I would agree, but the author uses the typical zombie conventions to great effect, and without making the book feel cliched. The references to Dante's Inferno are apt, and add to the story, too. Even if you haven't read the Inferno, you don't need to to enjoy the story. Cash is a strong heroine. Clutch grew on me. I wasn't crazy about Jase or any of the other minor characters, but they were good enough and kept the story engaging. My only complaint with the story was that the ending was a bit anti-climactic. The final confrontation wasn't too believable, either. But then again, if you consider the Inferno, it works on a deeper level. Despite this, the story was solid and it delivered at all the major points. Writing: Very well written. Superbly written, actually. Not a single typo in the book, and the writing style is perfect for this type of book. There were a few phrases that made me cringe though ("My brow rose", "Clutch narrowed his eyes"), but these were forgivable because they were so few. I would also say that some of the dialogue is a little cliched and could have been a bit more original, but there were only a few lines that really stuck out at me. Complaints aside, this really is one of the best written books I've read this year. Kudos to both the author and editor of this novel, and this book is a testament that there are inidies who can publish books on the same level of traditional publishers. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes zombie books, and to anyone who doesn't. The book is just that good. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.show more
