Caesar vs Zombies by Brent Reilly

100 million zombies are invading Europe and only one man can stop them. An asteroid in Central Asia triggered the outbreak and now it’s sweeping Eurasia. Caesar must move people off the mainland, battle zombie hordes, and deal with a Senate that wants to ruin him. Meet Caesar, Cato, Cicero, Crassus, Calpurnia, Cleopatra, Caesarion, and Pompey the Great in this fun military thriller. EXCERPTS: Marc Anthony held up Cicero’s head by the hair. “Cicero, do you still prefer defeat with Pompey over victory with Caesar?” Zombie Cato attacked Caesar with his sword, smelling as bad as Cato.Caesarion climbed after the zombies climbing the Great Pyramid of Giza, the world’s tallest man-made structure, and yelled down to his troops. “The dead aren’t gonna kill themselves. Let’s go!”The riders lured a million living corpses into a kill zone. Cut off from the main body, those zombies were dead meat.The woods were scary at night without being chased by a zombie bitch. A growl gave her away and the boys ran for their lives. “Bibulus is a small man,” Caesar said sadly. “He’s also short.” Cleopatra was neither pretty nor ugly, like a mediocre artist who didn’t finish a clay sculpture.“Pompey has a legion in Rome — they call it Zombie Duty.”As long as the hottie didn’t turn into a zombie, saving her was a no-brainer. Ironic how that turned out.“I’ll see you in Hades, Julius Caesar.” “As long as you get there before me, Lucius Caesar.”Cebo looked a decade older. “I get my optimism from my mother. I had to kill her with her favorite chair.” “That zombie looks disappointed,” Caesarion said sadly. “Or overwhelmed by existential angst.” “Sulla, you want my beef jerky?” “No, that shit gives me diarrhea.”
