Fear the Dead: A Zombie Apocalypse Series
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Fear the Dead: A Zombie Apocalypse Series
Read the book that began it all: Fear the Dead is the first in a dystopian series set in the near future where the world as we know it is gone.
They said the outbreak would only last a few days, but fifteen years later the world has gone to hell. The infected roam the streets, and at night the mutated stalkers leave their nests to kill. Nobody knows what they are, and anyone outside after dark will find out how dangerous they can be.
A broken man has to make one last trip through a dead world, with a promise to his dead wife to fulfill. He thought he knew about survival, but this is just the beginning of the horror. The apocalypse makes different things of us all. Fathers turn into killers, mothers become hunters. Daughters learn to be survivors, and sons become traitors.
Praise for the Fear the Dead
‘Loved this book. It had everything you want to see in a good apocalyptic story. And it’s great to see a British author giving the likes of Mr Kirkman a run for his money. Bring on the next book. Can’t wait.’
‘Excellent baddies and a realistic depiction of a post-apocalyptic future. Fear the Dead has left me wanting more and I’d love to know what happens next. I would read a sequel in a heartbeat!’
‘The author Jack Lewis is the mist of writing what could be one of the classic end of the world zombie tales in years to come.’
Chapter 1 Preview
Shadows slid from the spines of the trees and covered the woods in darkness. Night was nearly here, and soon it wouldn’t just be the infected lurking in the forest; the stalkers were coming.
Rain fell on my windbreaker in patters that soaked into my shoulders and weighed me down with each drip. My back was slick with water from where the waterproof lining of my coat had faded. In the distance, an infected stumbled through the trees and crunched on the twigs beneath it with clumsy footsteps.
I had a revolver in my bag, but gunshots were the last thing I needed. That was a sure way of getting the infected to come for you, drawn in by the prospect of a meal. I walked quieter and breathed softer, hoping it wouldn’t look my way.
The sky darkened. My stomach ached with hunger, and each step was a chore. I needed to sit down, I needed food, and I had to get to shelter before the stalkers came.
There was a town called Vasey less than an hour’s walk away. There would be a roof to guard me from the elements, and walls to protect me from the things that walked in the night. There would be food, warmth and if I was lucky, maybe even a beer. My mouth watered at the idea of gulping on a bottle of cold ale.
The problem with going to town was there would also be people there, and lots of them. Vasey was the biggest survivor settlement in Lancashire, and it was as safe a place you could get in this new world.
