The aging prophetess Devora. Hurriya the slave girl. Zadok, a legend among warriors. And the widower Barak, who has sworn to defend his homeland from a migration of walking corpses greater than has ever been seen.
Devora is all too familiar with the unclean dead. She was there when her mother was pulled screaming from her tent by zombies. And when her mother rose, famished for flesh, it was Devora’s hand that ended her hunger. Now Devora has struck an uneasy alliance with those she fears most among the living. Yet the strangers in the land must stand together if they are to rid the land of its curse.

Most zombie books involve unprecedented apocalyptic outbreaks, and take place in the here and now. This limits what the author can do with the zombie theme. However, Mr. Litore has done something few other authors have done. He has treated zombie outbreaks in a historical manner. He treats zombie outbreaks in much the same way we treat the periodic flu epidemics that happen every year. They are an accepted part of daily life, sometimes insignificant, sometimes devastating. The Zombie bible focuses on the effects zombies would have on the people and events of biblical times. This series is very well-written, and refreshing to the zombie fan who has read so many zombie apocalypse books. It is a new take on zombies, which allows for much greater variety in characters and events.
This was hard, as all the characters have unique qualities that I loved each of them for. But I really liked Zadok and Barak. Zadok because he is so loyal, and you can't help but love him.... and Barak, because he is, at heart, a good man trying to do the best he can
The scene where Zadok and Devora first meet is my favourite. It melted my heart.
