    The world is infected. The dead are reanimating and attacking the living. In a city being overrun with ravenous corpses people find safety where they can. A disparate group of strangers drawn together by chance seek sanctuary from the carnage outside in an empty office block.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Great story well written, but how can characters be so naïve. Its like zombie culture didn`t exist as they fumble through the zombocalypse. the dead got called Zombies at a stage I felt too late to give the story credence (we know their zombies) the characters didn't. Oh! and I knew who was the dark horse before the end. Domain is far better book. But I like Ian`s way of spinning a story to keep me hooked.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Billy


    What does Karl Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    American accents and good narrative.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes but make the character more aware of what is happening.


    Any additional comments?

    Zombies are part of culture now stop writing books that assume its new to all evolved. Aim for the head and stop getting bit.

    The world is dead, devoured by a plague of reanimated corpses. Cahz and his squad of veteran soldiers are tasked with flying into abandoned cities and retrieving zombies for scientific study. Deep in infected territory, hundreds of miles from their support vessel, the ever present dangers weigh heavily on Cahz's mind as he shepherds his team to make quick, clean extractions. Then the unbelievable happens. After years of encountering nothing but the undead, the team discovers a handful of disheveled survivors in a fortified warehouse with dwindling supplies.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Remains of the Dead to be better than the print version?

    Yes I can listen cooking, travelling and working and a good narrator turns it into a movie in your mind.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can`t pick a favourite all are so determined to survived.


    What does Karl Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    a great voice fleshing out the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Surviving the dead takes patience and resolve.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book, but read Domain of the dead first.

    Eric Riordan was once a wealthy man leading a comfortable, easy life. Until one day Gabriel, his oldest friend, Marine Corps veteran, and a former mercenary, told him how the world was going to end. He did his best to prepare. He thought he was ready for anything. He was wrong. As the dead rise up to devour the living, one man finds himself struggling to survive in the ruins of a shattered world. Alone, isolated, and facing starvation, his only chance is to flee to the Appalachians and join forces with Gabriel.

    Amanda says: "Not bad, Not unique, but well written!"
