Voyage of the Dead is the first book of the Sovereign Spirit Saga detailing the adventures of several groups of survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse. Most of them are aboard a ship that is well equipped to survive the end of civilization, while others struggle to survive in a world suddenly overrun by undead cannibals. This is a science fiction adventure set within a horror genre, full of blood, guts, violence and the human emotions that fuel our survival instincts. While some scenes include graphic violence, it is intended to be more exciting than disgusting and more about using your brains than eating them. Enjoy the ride!

Book length is over 100,000 words. This is the first book of a series, followed by "Flotilla of the Dead" and "Deluge of the Dead" in the Sovereign Spirit Saga.

"Without a doubt one of the better Zombie books."
Anthony Wessel for The Kindle Book Review

"This is one of those books that starts with a bang and I read waiting for the pace to slacken, except it doesn't. Too often, books of this kind start out with an action scene, and then we get chapters of backfill and descriptions of the soap opera-like travails of our characters. While Forsyth indeed fills in the characterizations, the key quality of this book is that most valuable in any kind of thriller--PACING." John S. Walsh

"What a truly entertaining read. I started reading on Friday morning and couldn't put the book down until I finished. Not just your everyday, run-of-the-mill, ho-hum story of the apocalypse." -- 5 stars from Paul Jones, author of "Extinction Point" and "Towards Yesterday."

"Gorey, pulpy, zombie fun! Basically it's the A-Team meets Battlestar Galactica meets The Walking Dead. If this were a show I'd watch it." -- 5 stars from Nathan Yocum, author of "The Zona."

"The Walking Dead meets Battlestar Gallactica! This novel has all the ingredients for an epic series of books and would be great for television too. It's like a Star Trek of the Zombie Apocalypse." Tom McWilliams

This reminded me of nothing so much as a Doc Savage thriller. The hero/protagonist is not only a lucky winner of a big lottery payoff, he's also managed to have the foresight to have assembled the !most fortuitous collection of hardware possible aboard his luxury yacht, all bought with the lottery proceeds. Weapons, vehicles (including a mini-sub), helicopters, float plane... yada yada yada. Oh, a trophy wife who is a format cook and his job in construction, plus friends who were special forces before they all launched on this round the world excursion they were on when the zombieoutbreak occurred. All in all, just more than a little implausible. On the other hand, the zombie conflicts were entertaining, and reasonably well written. Entertaining zombie novel, if a little off-putting by how well situated the protagonist is before the zombie apocalypse.
