More About This Book

Overview

It didn't take long for the world to die. And it didn't take long, either, for the dead to rise.

Born on the day everything ended, a world filled with the walking dead is the only one that Aaron knows. Kept in seclusion, his family teaches him the basics. How to read and write. How to survive.

Then Aaron makes a shocking discovery. The undead, who desire nothing but flesh, ignore him. It's as if he's invisible to them.

The survivors of the old suburb of Lexington call a high school their home. They live day to day, without any of the luxuries mankind used to enjoy. Samantha is a product of the new world. Alone, cold, looking out only for herself. She and the other residents of Lexington feel their hope dwindling. They need change. They need someone who can face the corpses. They need someone who can live in a city of the dead.

They need Aaron.

"Not your ordinary Zombie Apocalypse... I give DEAD LIVING an enthusiastic 5 stars."--Debi Faulkner, author of SUMMONING

    A Book with Real (BLOODY) Heart!

    Dead Living, by Glenn Bullion, is not your ordinary Zombie Apocalypse. This is a book with (lots of bloody) heart.

    Opening with your expected zombie-induced chaos, Bullion holds nothing back in showing the initial confusion and devastation expected by the genre. The thing that really sets this book apart, is that he quickly moves past the gore and destruction into a story with real depth and human emotions. Don't be lulled into complacency, though, because there is still plenty of blood, guts and spilled brains to keep the story moving quickly.

    Aaron is a main character who seems almost too good for the new world reality, but Bullion makes sure that you see even the best of us has a breaking point. And that breaking point is a doozy.

    Sam, the other main character in this book, is truly a product of her environment. Her skepticism and instinct for self-preservation are the perfect foil to Aaron's ease and self-confidence. The other, more minor characters are also very well-handled and well-rounded. Their believability is what really makes this story a good read.

    On the 1-5 star rating system, I give Dead Living an enthusiastic 5 stars. If you are in the market for a good read with a bit of gore on the side, this is the book for you.

    I haven┬┐t read a serious zombie book in quite a while and recen


    I haven’t read a serious zombie book in quite a while and recently decided it was high time I remedy that failing. I was delighted to be offered the chance to try Dead Living and, as it turns out, I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed getting back to this genre with this one. Mr. Bullion strikes a good balance between plot development and characterization and that goes a long way in creating a really good tale.

    It’s very easy to like secondary characters such as Richardson, Nikki, Mary, Larry and Amanda and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. It’s even easier to heartily detest the reprehensible Garrett and his toadying sidekick, Ray, and the murderous Allister evokes a lack of love, too. Whether they’re good people or bad, many are so well-developed that it’s easy to think you really know them.

    Then there are Aaron and Samantha. Refreshingly, Sam is a woman of color and her natural beauty is a catalyst for a myriad of reactions from others, both good and ill-intentioned. Her defensiveness is completely understandable, especially because she’s been on her own since early childhood and had to learn to take care of herself. It hasn’t been easy for her to accept the positive aspects of belonging to a community but the wall finally begins to come down soon after she meets Aaron. That young man has secrets, one in particular, but is amazingly self-confident—not a braggart, just sure of his abilities—but he, too, has to learn how to live with a large group of people. Having been raised by his father and a small band of loving, intelligent friends, Aaron has grown into a unique adult and one of his greatest assets is his ability to read, a rarity among the younger survivors in this new environment.

    Living among the undead is as frightening as you might expect and the author’s worldbuilding is strong. The initial event and the period 14 years later are clearly drawn but it is Baltimore and Lexington that bring this harsh environment to the forefront. How Richardson has led his group to a tolerable life is heartening and it’s no surprise that different personalities lead to conflict. Still, that conflict is nothing compared to what Aaron finds next, the evil that men always manage to do…

    Twists and turns and a nerve-wracking battle lead to a conclusion that is complete and yet leaves room for a sequel. Mr. Bullion has said he plans to carry forward with Aaron’s story some day and I really hope he will—it’s a story well worth continuing.

    Well written novel. Great character development helps you empathize with the main characters. Some unexpected twists and original ideas for a zombie book. Great flow! I read complete book in a day.

    Hoping for more!

    I loved this story and the new take on a zombie novel. The characters drew me in and all of it left me wanting more. Really hoping this is a "To be continued". I feel like there is so much more to hear!

    Not your average zombie book.

    The Dead Living is a zombie book with the similar settings and adventures big with a big twist, the main character is immune to the bite...well written and very entertaining.

    Very interesting take on zombies and being immune. Good book but a quick read, would like to know why the dead returned. Hope there is a sequel.
