I have read a lot of zombie novels since starting TheNovelBlog.com. Some good, some bad and some that have been nothing short of astounding, capturing the human condition and race in an epic scale so vast that it brings goose bumps to the skin.
Joining the rank of greats David Moody
and Jonathan Maberry
is Joe McKinney’s APOCALYPSE OF THE DEAD. Apocalypse reads like Brad Pitt’s
gonna wish his take on Max Brooks’s WORLD WAR Z
will play in theaters. If there were ever a Zombie novel ripe for the picking in Hollywood, this is it. It has everything. A great cast of characters. Great locations ranging from Las Vegas to the North Dakota Grasslands and an epic storyline that’s enough to make Peter Jackson
cry out in envy.
From its opening scene to its shocking end, Joe dragged me without mercy into a world where the dead weren’t the only things that you needed to fear in an apocalyptic aftermath.FEARNet.com
calls McKinney: "A rising star on the horror scene," and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t remember the last time I’ve read action that’s left me on the edge of my seat the way he has here. APOCALYPSE OF THE DEAD sets the pace for zombie survival horror and has raised the bar on what a quality story can, and more importantly, should be.
Welcome to the Apocalypse, people. Welcome to the world of Joe McKinney. You're welcome.
