“Danny’s journey through a land of death to find [her sister] Kelley makes for a remarkable character-driven story, and the final sentence takes it to another level.”

“Tripp balances kinetically choreographed scenes of zombie carnage with studies of well-drawn characters and enough political intrigue to give his tale more gravity and grounding than most zombie gorefests.”

“Tripp’s debut is a thrilling page-turner that will delight fans of zombie fiction and post-apocalyptic stories, including Charlie Huston’s Sleepless and Justin Cronin’s The Passage.”
