The Risen: Courage is the second novel and fourth book in The Risen series by author Marie F Crow. This book continues the story presented in The Risen: Dawning. The Risen: Dawning and The Risen: Remnants are necessary to be read first before beginning this novel in order for the reader to follow the story progression.

Comments from fans about Marie F Crow's zombie apocalypse series:

"FINALLY!!!!! A zombie story that I LIKE!!!!"

"Freakishly awesome!"

"From the beginning to the end...THIS is an amazing zombie apoc story."

"I mean...Zombies...Bikers...the Paranormal? YES PLEASE!"

"With zombie books, one of the greatest pleasures is to be able to get that chill up your spine as you embrace the apocalyptic chaos and atmosphere of death, destruction and despair. That is exactly what Crow does here, she paints the sublime with her words and in doing so creates a lovely and violent story where you can feel each chapter viscerally through her deep descriptions."

"Marie F Crow once again delivers a powerful and gripping novel to The Risen series that will have you fearing for Helena every step of the way. She and her companions have to face off against zombies that are becoming more intelligent and her own inner demons that are becoming stronger by the day. If that wasn't enough, they find themselves confronted with religious fanatics that will challenge their will to survive to its absolute breaking point."

"I think the approach Crow takes to zombies is perfect. You don't hold back, and you don't ease into things. This is a really screwed up world. You don't get time for a nice calm intro before the chaos, you get brought right into it, and you've gotta sink or swim. That's what her writing does to the reader. You're either in or out, but there's no in between here. By this point, people who have read all the books are fiercely loyal to someone, or to a bunch, but you've got your emotional strings all kinds of tied up in this story, and Crow starts pulling at them, one by one. It's going to hurt, I expected this going in, but I still loved it!"

"Marie F Crow will be a force to be reckoned with in the very near future, this I can already see..."

"Kudos to Marie F Crow for such a fantastic read!"

About the Author

Marie F Crow is the author of the post-apocalyptic series, The Risen. She weaves her stories around the human element of the horror verses the "monsters" themselves. She believes that the real horror of life does not come from the expected, but from the unexpected responses of the human nature and what depths of trauma a person has to survive in certain situations. She began writing The Risen series when feeling that the popular genre was slipping too deep into the realm of pure "slasher" and forgetting what the horror of zombies can mean for a story.

Now with her children's series launched, Marie hopes to use her favorite "monster" as a teaching tool to inspire children to understand that not everything that looks scary, is scary. With Abigail and Her Pet Zombie series, Marie hopes to further spread her love for all things "that go bump in the night" with small children showing them that it's okay to be different and to embrace those same differences in those around them.

I absolutely enjoyed reading The Risen: Courage. And, I believe fans of the Sci-Fi fantasy genre will love reading yet another one of these authors' captivating tales. If you're unfamiliar with this author, you don't know what you're missing out on! This is the second novel and fourth book in The Risen series so it would be advisable to read the previous novels in order for the reader to follow the story development. This story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There's an abundance of well illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book. This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are twists and turns in this page turner that will take the reader on a thrilling journey. It's one of those rare Sci-Fi series that come along that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I'm giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery! A highly recommended read. I'll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Marie F. Crow in the future.
