JUST RELEASED: A Place Called Hope

Friday , 20, October 2017 2 Comments

The sequel to the 2017 Dragon Award Finalist for Best Apocalyptic Novel, A Place Outside the Wild, by Daniel Humphreys.

The survivors built a community and called it Hope. After eight years, they allowed themselves to think that the zombie scourge was ending; the hordes fading away in the face of time.

But the enemy they thought extinct was evolving – growing faster, stronger, and more cunning. The timely return of the much-depleted 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, US Marine Corps helped turn the tide of one battle. The prospect of renewed war against a different type of enemy will require sterner stuff and serious firepower.

Now, they must go far beyond the overgrown wastes they call the wild in a desperate attempt to recover vital military equipment that will determine whether the future of mankind is one for the living – or for the dead.

Reader Praise for A Place Outside the Wild:

“World War Z meets Rot and Ruin.”

“The zombies in A Place Outside The Wild make the ones in The Walking Dead look like fuzzy little puppies.”

“The author knows how to take you real quick from comfortable to gripping your chair with your fingernails, in a way that reminded me of the movie Signs. The last 10% of the book is such a frantic rush of nonstop burning action that you’d better hope you’ve got time set aside to read through it all, because you won’t want to stop.”

“This book purposely has what other zombie books I’ve encountered lack: a sense of existential hope”

    The first book in this series is SO damn good.

      I’m not quite half way through the second book yet, but so far it’s as least as good as the first, with potential to be much better. And watch out for a guest appearance from an occasional contributor to this blog…
