Publisher's Summary

In a post-apocalyptic future, where humankind has descended back into the dark ages, a young swordsman and his small band of allies must stand against the Undead King and his army of ravenous zombies.

There is a war brewing in the Green Lands. East versus west, might versus mind, brother versus brother....

While this battle over power and resources consumes the land, the Undead King is clandestinely marching north. At his command are an army of ravenous corpses, their appetite for living flesh insatiable. In the king's possession is a scepter of great power, forged in white fire by the monks of Jai Lin....

Mercer Crane is a young wanderer who has lost everything and means to make a name for himself in the war. He has come into possession of a sword, its edges lined with dark matter. This blade is special, as is the man who wields it, for together, they are the only thing that can stop the Undead King.

    "As each chapter was finished, I wanted more"

    The narrators voice was such that I could visualize the story in such a way that it was like a great book you can't put down. I wanted to know more about the characters; if they would live or die.

    "Solid story, pacing, and narrator. I recommend!"
    What other book might you compare The Undead King to and why?

    It reminded me of a couple different titles: Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Cell (Stephen King), and Walking Dead (mostly because it is the most current zombie reference in pop culture). If Game of Thrones took place in the future and was instead an interesting take on armageddon.
    A large, fleshed out world full of interesting characters, set against a backdrop of a zombie apocalypse, he Undead King managed to not become cumbersome the way most zombie stories do. Instead Rinaldi figured out ways to keep it fresh, bringing new takes on old ideas and setting them in an interesting world that feels lived in and full of history. The characters are all interesting and fun to travel with, and the villain(s) all fit the story well. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to picking up Book 2!


    What about Shawn Saavedra’s performance did you like?

    Saaverda's performance was great. He drew me in perfectly, and his narration never took me away from the story. His voices fit the characters wonderfully.
