Overview

Is the apocalypse a world wide event or is it something that happens privately to the individual? It's a night at the fights for, well, just about everyone. So place your bets because, though everyone gets to go, not everyone gets to go home.

Troubled by his recent choices, John Arrick goes in search of redemption. But even those actions which seem right turn out wrong in the end. With no one to turn to, he goes back to Push Ups and confesses to Abby, leaving her with all of the information regarding the weekend zombie fights. Abby, though, is facing her own demons. Though her involvement with Peter Ventura led to a fire and the death of a fireman, she feels she has nowhere else to turn. Her relationship with her husband has deteriorated and her early friendship with Anthony Heron has faded.

When Smith discovers a zombie that doesn't attack people, he turns it over to Heron. Obsessed with zombie "anomalies" he's been experiencing, Heron is fascinated by this new specimen and vows to keep it from the "Butcher Shop".

Editorial Reviews

Debbie McBee
Fantastic! I'm enjoying the depth of character development. Although there are zombies and gore involved, the series is most definitely about individual reactions to the crisis. Different from other zombie literature in that the story and the plague develop at a much more believable -- and ultimately, horrifying -- pace. Instead of mass hysteria, the story is truer to reality as the characters deal with not only surviving, but thriving, in spite of the slow creep of dread.

    Just completed Zombies by Ivan Turner books 1 ¿ 10. This was a v

    Just completed Zombies by Ivan Turner books 1 – 10. This was a very good story, stretched out over 10 books, I guess it was originally published in monthly episodes but I was lucky enough to get all 10 at B & N so I could read them back to back. I hate having to wait months or longer for the next in a series. Anyway, each episode is 200-300 pages long. The series is a good story with good character development and how the characters reacted and lived through a zombie apocalypse in New York City. There is some blood and guts, but the stories don’t dwell on it. Lots of human interaction with the zombies. On to the next set which I hope has already been completed and I can read as I did this set. Thank you Ivan Turner for a really good story.

    A very solid, consistently good series.

    The author mentions that it's being developed for television but either the wheels of quality tv grind slowly, or they bailed on it. Either way it sucks because this series leaves Walking Dead standing there looking pitiful.

    So good!

    >>Having blasted through the entire series, both Zombie! And Zombie 2.0; I can say that Ivan has a fan for life. His writing style is informal, comfortable, and yet the stories are exciting and fresh. Zombie books are usually pretty disappointing; often reading more like fan fiction. This series was a welcome pleasure to find while waiting for something new from Mark Tufo, Bryan James, and Robert Decoteau! Start with book one and just work your way through them all- its worth the hassle of rooting around to get them in order! Now I am off to start on other books Ivan has written.

    CAN NOT GET ENOUGH

    Rooked with the first episode. Ivan Turner admits to some errors in the writing, but they are easily overlooked. I recommend these episodes to all zombie fans. Mr. Turner writess characters that you will enjoy and hope they survive. These stories are neot your typical zombie end of the world ones. Once I started I could not stop and I am eagerly awaitng episode 8. Please continue on Mr. Turner with more then the 10 you have promised.

    Excellent Read

    What a dea! $.99 for a great story. They start with episode one, I have read them all! Hard to put down until you are done with them. Can't wait until Episode 8!Get this series - there are suppose to be 10 but Mr. Turner says he might continue. They are a great contrast to traditional zombie movies/books instead of starting with the end othe world it creeps up on you and shows how a plague can slowly get out of hand and a possible rezl life senario of what humans might actully do if zombies become reality. Highly recommended and for the price....you can't beat it. Keep up the good worlk Ivan Turner - I am now a fan for life!
