Dark Recollections (Adrian’s Undead Diary Book 1) by Chris Philbrook

For the first time, the internet phenomenon is now in print!

Beheading a zombie isn’t easy in a world where you’re more afraid of the living than the dead.

Adrian Ring’s simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors. He saves his cat Otis, but shoots his mom. Pretty successful, all things considered.

Dark Recollections is the first part of Adrian’s own story of how he survived after “That Day.” Told through his eyes as he talks to his laptop, affectionately named ‘Mr. Journal,” and through short stories that entwine with his tales that bring forth dark visions of a world being eaten alive by an unimaginable evil. Adrian’s Undead Diary is an eight part epic about a solitary, guilt stricken man that didn’t think he deserved to live, but realizes very soon that he survived, and suffered for a reason.

It’s a great read for anyone. The stories are well written, characters build carefully and every detail is covered. People, this is what a great book looks like! Stop reading this review and start reading the book! -Frank D of zombie-guide.com

I don’t even think one needs to be a fan of zombie fiction to end up a fan of AUD; because Chris’s talent can’t be pigeonholed into one limited, literary genre. His true talent lies in weaving an enduring, sweeping story that does exactly what it’s supposed to do… pulls you in, engrosses you, evokes emotion, and leaves you satisfied (if not a little bit sad) when it’s over. In the case of AUD, for me, the zombies are just a bonus! -Wendi Haegle

One Love (Vampire Love Story Book 5) by H.T. Night

Book #5 in the Vampire Love Story Series

Josiah Reign is a lover and a fighter. This has never been more true than now, as Josiah ramps up his vampire and werewolf army with tactical strategies and combat techniques that will prepare him to face the evil Krull in the prophetic battle that will make or break the very survival of the Mani people.

Lena, the love of Josiah’s life, is pregnant and about to deliver twins who have a special destiny of their own. Josiah is awed by fatherhood, especially when one of his sons reveals a supernatural gift more powerful than Josiah ever imagined.

Discovering tragic secrets about friends and even about old enemies has put Josiah in more than one unfortunate predicament. In fact, several times, he is in danger more serious than ever before, with the adventure escalating into a magnificent journey that is as much a soul search, as it is a supernatural battle.

But who is a friend and who is a foe? The clock is ticking toward the battle as the vampires scramble to choose sides and get ready for the final epic battle of the entire book series!

Josiah finds out that the only way to survive and save the Mani race is to step outside everything he ever knew or ever believed and give his all to a cause that threatens to tear apart his family, his friendships, and his personal truths.

This tale is about hope, honor, joy, loss, deceit, enemies, friends, and redemption. But most of all, this tale is about Love. They will shout it on the battlefield:

One Love.

Fall in love with characters with brave hearts and epic stories of heroes and villains that will stay with you, forever.

Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan (Epic Science-Fiction Adventure,) by R. D. Hale and B. Chengeta

My name is Arturo Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio City – the capital of a nation ravaged by a war which was won by extremists. Offered a choice between slavery and disenfranchisement, we exist in an underclass so disconnected we effectively inhabit a different era. Daily life involves scavenging, theft and substance abuse with a bunch of misfits who are somehow still in one piece after years of abandonment. I am a natural born fighter and although I despise warfare, I must witness the downfall of those bastard elites whilst fulfilling my romantic intentions with the forever unattainable girl of my dreams.

Sky City is a sci-fi action adventure with light elements of fantasy. It is set in a near future alternative reality where science is indistinguishable from magic and oppression is near-inescapable. Technology has created a newer, ‘superior’ form of human and genetically engineered monstrosities are as terrifying as anything encountered in your nightmares. The underclass have been underestimated and as they fight back the boundary between freedom fighter and terrorist becomes increasingly blurred. Meanwhile, the drug-induced haze of a traumatised mind places a question mark over the meaning of reality.

‘Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan interweaves heavy social issues and philosophy without ever sounding pedantic, milking the sci-fi genre for all its worth. The slum dog’s efforts to maintain their humanity in such a heartless age, when everything is going against them is so palpable. The 99% versus 1% theme focuses our minds on where society might be heading and forces us to look at things how they are, if we wish them to be truly different.’ Dean C. Moore – Author of Renaissance 2.0
