Description

Tamsyn Webb has had to grow up fast. The dead walk, and they hunt the living.

One of the few safe places left in England is Gravesend, a small village turned into a fortress. Trapped with hundreds of starving, scared survivors, it's getting harder to tell who the monsters are - the ones beyond the walls, or those huddled behind them.

When Tamsyn learns of a possible cure for the zombie virus, there's only one option. She'll have to jump the wall, but nothing but her bow, a quiver-full of arrows, and the terror in her gut. But even if she gets back to Gravesend in one piece, Tamsyn might just doom them all...

It's a rotten new world. Tamsyn's only option? Be dead last.

Review quote

If you're a fan of zombie action, bow-wielding badass heroines and good pulpy fun you should really check out Quiver." - Alan Baxter, author of Bound

"Tamsyn's age and archery skills will draw inevitable comparisons with Katniss Everdeen. While I loved The Hunger Games, I have to say I would rather spend an afternoon with Tamsyn than Katniss. Tamsyn is far more optimistic. She is competent, funny, determined-but-vulnerable, and very believable. The kind of girl I would have given up my entire comic book collection for, for a single date. " - Scott T Barnes, New Myths

"Fast-paced, violent and clever, QUIVER goes well beyond the tired tropes of the zombie apocalypse genre without ever stooping to parody. You should read it." - Jason Franks, author of Bloody Waters

"The book is a big read that should have a few people squirming as the gore hits the page, but Fischer never drops his narrative edge from first page to last page. A solid example of decent writing in a ghetto sub-genre, Quiver kept my attention, and more importantly didn't bounce me off the page, as the journey went increasingly more surreal." - ScaryMinds review

"...QUIVER encapsulates many of the tried and true formulas common to survival horror; the building of fortifications, scavenging, zombie (or coffin-dodger) hoards and their migration, the fall of Government and the rise of independent parties, but the most important component of this zombie post apocalyptic concoction is the humans themselves who are commonly more inhumane than the walking dead. Fischer goes to great lengths to portray a dead world whose living souls are rotten and more menacing than those who threaten to end mans existence." - OzNoir
