This is where it begins. This is where the end of the world begins? She wakes up alone and feeling like she's half-dead. She can't remember her name. She staggers outside, looking for help--and that's when she sees that the dead have returned to life, that zombies are running in the streets and devouring the living. And she's one of them. She isn't breathing. The zombies leave her alone. Because they know she's one of their kind. And yet she differs from the brainless ghouls around her in some crucial ways. Somehow she's kept her intelligence intact, if not her memory. And being dead has certain compensations. She has developed strange powers. She calls herself Nilla, and all she knows is that staying alive only gets harder after you die? Meanwhile the National Guard has its hands full with the worst epidemic ever to strike the American west. From California to Colorado every town, every city is being overrun. Captain Bannerman Clark isn't prepared for this. He's semi-retired and he hasn't fired a gun in years, not since the Vietnam war. Yet it seems there's no one else around to take charge. As the world we know collapses he must find in himself the brains, the guts, and the moral courage to lead the survivors to safety, if there's any to be had. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, shadowy players are just beginning to show their hands. There's more going on here than meets the eye, and Clark and Nilla both have parts to play in a game they can't comprehend?
At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, Dread Nation is Justina Ireland's stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiar—a country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet. Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—derailing the War Between the States and changing the nation forever. In this new America, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Education Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It's a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations. But that’s not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston's School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesn’t pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose. But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies. And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.

Welcome to New York City, Population Zero? The power grid has collapsed. There is no running water, no light, no heat. The massive neon signs of Times Square are dark now, and the subway trains crouch silent in their tunnels, waiting for commuters who will never return. An epidemic of staggering lethality has passed over the city and left nothing living in its wake. And yet the city is not deserted. The dead have returned to life, and they're hungry. The millions of people who once worked and lived in New York have been turned into cannibalistic monsters whose only function is to consume.

Soon he has a small army at his command, a growing mob of rotting corpses all devoted to one cause: to find meat for their master. When Dekalb and Gary cross paths sparks will fly, destinies will clash--and the future of humanity will be decided, one head shot at a time.

The war carries on, spiraling out of control... Savage fighting rages from one end of the bay to the other as the still dangerous Corsairs, splinter into factions, each battling to see who will end up in ultimate control. Trapped in the middle of the bay on a little nub of an island, Jenn Lockhart and her shattered defenders can only watch helplessly, knowing full well that they will be the eventual prize. Their men will be murdered, their wounded thrown into the bay to drown, and their women brutally raped before being sold into slavery. And Jenn can do nothing. The battle has left them fearfully low on ammunition, and they have no way to cross the zombie-infested waters. Only Jillybean's return gives them any hope-and yet this is the same woman who started the war in the first place. She is the reason for the bloated corpses, piled like old trash, and for the tears of the grieving and for the blood running like rivers into the bay. For the sake of the community, Mike, Stu and Jenn keep this a secret, but when the secret gets out, Jenn is forced to arrest Jillybean and become Queen in her place. Her first responsibility is to execute the woman she once loved.
Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse is the story of the dead celebrity chef Floyd Rampant, who rises from his grave aiming to create a zombie army of chefs who will rule the world, using the human species as the main ingredient in their cordon bleu meals. It is dark, original, and so funny it should carry a government health warning. It is a gourmet feast, an unmissable read, and a black and poignant joke. Part horror story, part political and social satire, it gives the reader a fast-paced entree of dread, a main course of panic and a dessert of distress. CCZA, as it's known for short, has a cast of unforgettable characters, most of whom meet with gruesome ends. The action begins in Croydon, moves to London, and reaches its explosive climax in the author's home town of Huddersfield. This smart, witty and profound modern day classic works on many levels. Reclusive author Jack Strange signed for Kensington Gore Publishing in early 2016 in blood, no-one is sure whose. He has a wife, poor woman, and two lovely daughters who can't be named for legal reasons. Oh, and besides all that, Jack Strange lives in Huddersfield West Yorkshire. Need we say more?"

Genre: Juvenile Fiction
Fourteen year old Caitlin Flectcher's life takes a turn for the worse when she's tricked into climbing down a "rabbit hole," landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe - except it's crawling with savage, starving blood-eyed zombies. All the timeless fairy tale characters who once lived forever are now the living dead - think Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty. Even worse, they're famished. Definitely not the ideal situation for a vulnerable young girl proned to panic attacks.
In a world where monsters exist...who's gonna kick monster ass? FRIGHT SQUAD! Well...they'll try. Abraham Crowley, like his father before him, is a monster hunter. The problem: He's not a very good one. Employed by the mostly secret organization BEAST, Abe and his two best friends, Maddie and Zack, are rarely taken seriously (the last "serious" job they performed was cleaning up after a pretty messy werewolf orgy...yuck). Then, while on patrol one fateful night, the trio accidentally prove their worth against a mutated vampire and are thrust into the action-packed world of monster-hunting they'd so been craving. But the job isn't as glamorous as they thought it would be. Because something strange is afoot. More and more creatures are mutating and wreaking havoc in the city, bodies are being stolen from the morgues, and someone is behind it all, someone dark and magical with a secret - a secret Abe desperately needs to know.
In the Zombie apocalypse the last Vampire on Earth has a hell of time keeping his food alive. Coburn’s been dead now for close to a century, but seeing as how he’s a vampire and all, it doesn’t much bother him. Or at least it didn’t, not until he awoke from a forced five-year slumber to discover that most of human civilization was now dead—but not dead like him, oh no. See, Coburn likes blood. The rest of the walking dead, they like brains. He’s smart. Them, not so much. But they outnumber him by about a million to one. And the clotted blood of the walking dead cannot sustain him. Now he’s starving. And nocturnal. And more pissed-off than a bee-stung rattlesnake. The vampire not only has to find human survivors (with their sweet, sweet blood), but now he has to transition from predator to protector—after all, a man has to look after his food supply.
