The dead rise…

A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news—it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men.

Humanity falls…

A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. Bur he never expected that his anonymous blog would ultimately record humanity’s last days.

The end of the world has begun…

Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called “Safe Havens” are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.

Dark Days
(Apocalypse Z #2)
by Manel Loureiro, Pamela Carmell (Translator)
-Horror, Zombies
Published: 2013
Amazon | Goodreads

The electrifying sequel to international best seller Apocalypse Z
The Russian-spawned virus that kills swiftly then ghoulishly resurrects its victims as ravenous cannibals has breached international borders.

The infernal progression…

From outbreak to epidemic and pandemic to sheer panic, the virus has shredded global civilization. Promised safe havens become deathtraps, lawlessness crumbles any remaining symbol of authority, and political violence in Spain threatens to erupt in civil war.


In the thick of the deadly madness, the young lawyer finds himself escaping to the Canary Islands in a stolen chopper with a motley crew made up of his Persian cat Lucullus, Ukrainian pilot Viktor “Prit” Pritchenko, 17-year-old beautiful distraction Lucia, and Sister Cecilia, who was trained as a nurse. The distant isle of Lanzarote is rumored to be the only refuge out of the virus’s reach. But with relentlessly multiplying hordes of the living dead—and equally fatal human treachery—blocking their every move, their quest for survival is quickly becoming a suicide mission.

The Wrath of the Just
(Apocalypse Z #3)
by Manel Loureiro, Pamela Carmell (Translator)
-Horror, Zombies
Published: 2014

From apocalypse...

An act of terrorism unleashed an unspeakable biological weapon...and hell on earth. But as the masses felled by a hideous virus rose from the dead to prey on the living, a small band of survivors defied death and its ghastly spawn—determined to outrun the world’s end and somehow begin again.

To Armageddon...

But beyond the undead-besieged shores of Europe lies something closer to damnation than salvation. Rescued from certain death at sea, a young Spanish lawyer, the beautiful woman he loves, and his brash, battle-hardened best friend—who have weathered the worst of the unnatural disaster—think they’re escaping to freedom but are delivered into a stronghold of hate. In a United States ravaged by a zombie plague and overrun by the undead, only Gulfport, Mississippi, offers sanctuary...for a price: subservience to a fascist dictator and his brutal enforcers. But their reign of terror will soon be challenged—by rebels hungry for vengeance and invaders bent on conquest.

=====> While speaking with a bookseller at the local bookstore about current zombie books available, a fellow customer chimed in and recommended this series set in Spain. I just ordered it and look forward to adding it to my zombie book shelf.
