Overview

Nestled on the foot of Tibet’s sacred Seche La Mountain is the village of Dagzê. The normally quiet streets are bustling with the steady stream of arrivals and preparations for the coming Festival of the Medicine King; a time of celebration, healing, and renewal. But a shadow is sweeping the world, a plague of apocalyptic proportions—the dead are rising and devouring the living, and no place is safe where humanity thrives.

As Dagzê burns, overtaken by the hungry undead, five people come together: Lama Tenzin, an elder monk; Gu-lang, the silent warrior nun and Tenzin’s protector; Cheung, a private in The People’s Army, driver and escort of the Lama; ten-year-old Chodren Dawa, witness to his sister’s death and rising; and Dorje Cetan, a Shaolin-trained hermit monk of Seche La and a dreamer of a dark portent. Together they must fight their way out of Dagzê to an abandoned Buddhist hermitage clinging to the mist-shrouded cliffs of Seche La.

With the undead following and gathering at Eagle’s Nest gate, they barricade themselves inside their dead-end haven, and are soon forced to battle the beasts without, as well as the ones within.

    Timothy Baker's first novel, Path of the Dead, is worth a grabbi

    Timothy Baker's first novel, Path of the Dead, is worth a grabbing... before it grabs you.... muahahaha (just kidding).  From the beginning, you are  wrapped up in the story of the main character - a child - who is going through an unspeakable horror.  As he must learn to trust these strangers that he meets, they must all learn to survive and  well .. i can't give it away... you just have to read it yourself! I thoroughly enjoyed my journey into this Tibetan undead nightmare..... as I'm sure you will too.

    Usually zombie or "walking dead" stories are predictable and routine in their story telling but this one is different. This story has a refreshing storyline set in the mountains of Tibet filled with a cast of characters that you can't help but instantly bond with. I really liked the juxtaposition of Buddhist teachings and modern thinking (Medicine King/Venus). Lots of action, great dialogue, moments of introspection (fire within), imagery, and just the right amount of horror. I can't wait to read the next book.
