Drawl: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse (Duncan’s Story)
Edited by Monique Happy Editorial Services
Drawl, Book 10 in the best-selling Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series, is Duncan’s story of survival. Due to possible spoilers, it is meant to be read in numerical order with the other Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse novels—beginning with the one that started it all: Trudge: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.
Outbreak - Day 1
Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again.
On that last normal Saturday in July, while an unknown virus indiscriminately wreaks destruction and death to all four points of the compass—a chain of events at a rally in a downtown square gets Duncan Winters to thinking that Portland, Oregon may not be immune to the quickly spreading carnage.
But seeing is not believing until that initial veil of normalcy bias—a person’s natural tendency to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster and its possible effects—is lifted and long-dormant survival instincts forged and honed in Vietnam begin to awaken within him.
In a race against time—and facing an ever-expanding quarantine zone—Duncan Winters has decisions to make, and he must make them fast. If there is anything he has learned over nearly six decades on the third rock from the sun, it’s that you’re either quick or you’re dead.
Come along and see the first days of the Zombie Apocalypse unfold through beloved STZA character Duncan Winters’ eyes.

This author does not disappoint. This is Duncan's journey to find his brother. Great read!
Sean Chesser is a very good author. I love his descriptive writing style as well as his characters. The zombie genre is crowded, some good some bad, but with Sean you know you're going to be pleased by what you read. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Just finished Frayed all books in this series are awsm. Drawled is next read
Day 1 of the out break, the biggest difference? This is Duncan's story. I do not post spoilers, it was amazing to go back to the beginning and relive the horror again. Now we all know Duncan has his demons....but living his introduction to the Zombie Apocalypse is worth way more than what Mr. Chesser charges. So find a fortified position with good line of sight and hold on tight....your in for a bumpy ride!! --Matt Gearhart
