This is a YA novel geared to appeal to a wide age range. The protagonist is 16 going on 50, but not in an unbelievable fashion. His sidekick is a 12 year old boy who is serious about his comics. This tale doesn't focus on that which created the zombie plague, but what comes after and the story of the protagonist's journey to find his older brother.
This sample is amazingly well written and I will not only be purchasing, but keeping my eye on the author's other works. Another gem from Permuted Press.
