Will Norman is on his way to class in Manhattan when his commute turns into a harrowing, life-or-death journey. Tar Morrison watches his idyllic Rocky Mountain community fray at the seams.

Harvest of Ruin follows an array of survivors, focusing on the panic, terror and cost of surviving in a dying world.
The Dead of Winter is the epic sequel to Harvest of Ruin.

The two groups reluctantly move together in search of safety. In Colorado, the survivors living in the small town of Donner nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, are able to make preparations.

The Dead of Winter follows a broad swath of survivors as they seek shelter or make their way across a devastated landscape filled with undead. As the deep cold of winter sets in everyone struggles to survive.

Fifty people have found refuge in the Tower of London. Zombies plague the city outside the old fortress. The wasteland beyond is filled with nothing but radioactive ruins. With nowhere left to retreat to, and in a final attempt to make the ancient castle a place where they can do more than just slowly starve, the survivors search for food in the abandoned coastal farms.

In the sequel to Resurrection, as Parker, Annie, Kyle and Hughes begin their journey across a shattered and empty continent, Parker spins into a psychological abyss of post-traumatic stress, and the feud between him and Kyle hurtles toward a dangerous tipping point. They find a small seemingly friendly city near Wyoming's Wind River Mountains, so isolated that it survived the plague nearly intact. But all is not as it seems, and when residents of the town discover Annie's secret at the same time the infected reappear with a terrifying ferocity, the fate of all survivors--the entire human race--hangs in the balance. "Riveting! Nail biting! A couldn't-put-down read that kept this Walking Dead fan on the edge of her seat." - Annie Reed, author of The Patient Z Files Critical praise for Resurrection: A Zombie Novel "For fans of World War Z and The Walking Dead, Michael J. Totten's Resurrection is the novel you've been waiting for." - Scott William Carter, author of Ghost Detective "Resurrection dragged me in from the first page, with fast-paced, suspense-filled action and multi-layered and totally believable characters. Painting a vivid and gritty picture of a post-apocalyptic Northwest, Totten puts us into the minds and emotional struggles of a group of mismatched survivors forced to band together for protection even when they're on the verge or ripping each other apart. He also wrote one of the scariest passages I've read in any horror or suspense story...so be warned if you're afraid of the dark, or water, or both." - JC Andrijeski, author of Rook
Detective-story master Dashiell Hammett gives us yet another unforgettable read in Red Harvest: When the last honest citizen of Poisonville was murdered, the Continental Op stayed on to punish the guilty--even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain.

Zombies. The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. No one is safe from the undead. As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The British press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn’t enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic. Bill Wright, a Westminster insider and an advisor to a future Prime Minister, broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out. He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it. This is the first volume of his journal.

"Alas, Babylon." Those fateful words heralded the end.

But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness.
Blake was never one for taking chances. He lived in a world of statistics and probabilities where everything could be controlled. That world disappeared the day the dead got up and began attacking the living. Now he must struggle to survive and to make sense of a new and chaotic world that is quickly spiraling out of control. Rise of the Dead chronicles the first week of events beginning from the moment the dead rise. While the story is a fast-paced thrill ride through an ever-growing zombie horde, the novel aims to draw upon familiar themes as those found in the Romero classics. Along the way, Blake finds himself thrust among other unlikely survivors who must adapt to the realities of the undead world or join the legion of zombies. They must do more than fight off the undead. The survivors must fight against their conditioned apathy towards humanity.
It's the end of the world and Sam Bland feels fine. The apocalypse hit like a tsunami, too fast for any government agency to contain. Sam is not a hero. He's a reclusive psychology professor, wholly unprepared for survival, but spared from the virus by his antisocial tendencies. He didn't like society before, and now all the phonies who made life miserable are zombies trying to eat him, but at least he doesn't have to talk to them anymore. Charisse is his last glimmer of hope, but she's a head-case, owned by a sociopathic yuppie warlord, and she might be playing him. That doesn't deter Sam as he traverses the city, learning to kill and live amidst the dying and the killers, while alpha men fight for domination around him. In order to liberate the woman he thinks he loves, Sam must face the demons running amok in the world and in his head.
