A novel by

 
 
For no apparent reason, the dead are walking. Whether a corpse is waking up from a coroner's table or an old man who has suffered a heart attack in the middle of the night, to die and then rise and eat his wife slumbering beside him, the dead are about, and of course, they're hungry for human flesh. Will our heroes survive? Or will they become brunch for the walking dead. "Victory of the Dead" isn't an original story of the living dead and there isn't anything in the story that will blow the reader away. There are no philosophical musings on life and death, nor are there any surprises that will freak the reader out because they never saw it coming. In fact, if you read a lot of zombie novels, this one will probably sound a lot like the other gazillion stories out there nowadays. But if you like a good old-fashioned survival story where people are dealing with the living dead and trying to survive, with lots of gratuitous blood and gore thrown in for pure shock value, then this may be the book for you. But don't take our word for it, read what the zombies below thought of it. "Takes me back to the good old days when we used to just eat people and there wasn't a discussion about it. Though not original, there's lots of blood and gore, which I love." Hammer in face Zombie "If you're not looking for something original, but just want a story about people surviving the living dead, this should entertain you just fine." Axe head Zombie "I liked it when the zombies ate the people." Lobotomized Zombie "If you're looking for a convoluted plot with lots of 'twists' and turns (get it?) this isn't the zombie book for you. If you want campy fun with people getting eaten, then I say go for it." crewdriver in ear Zombie "What was the book about?" Half a Brain Zombie "Mmmmmppphhh! Girgle, girgle yarrrg!" Missing Lower Jaw Zombie "Lots of blood, guts and more gore than I could eat in a week." Machete in Forehead Zombie
