Inside these pages lies unspeakable horror. Bloodsplattering, brain-impaling, flesh-devouring horror. You’ve probably read your fair share of zombie stories. But this time it’s different. No longer can you sit idle as a bunch of fools make all the wrong moves. All hell is about to break loose—and YOU have a say in humanity’s survival.
You have choices to make.
Will you be a hero?
Or will you cover your own ass at all costs?
Can you withstand the coming hours, days, weeks, and months? Or will you die amidst the chaos and violence of a zombie uprising?
Or, worst of all, will you become one of them?
Max Brallier is a writer for the wildly popular virtual world, PopTropica, where each month over eight million kids spend more than 11 million hours, much of it engaged in Brallier's industry-leading online quests that exploit a rapidly increasing demand for narrative storytelling from those with gaming literacy. He’s also a humor writer, having published The All-Star Bathroom Sampler , Toilet Trivia, Reasons to Drink, and Reasons to Smoke. By day he works in the advertising and promotions department of a major book publisher, plotting his escape route for when the zombies come.
"Creepy, chilling, and lots of nasty fun! Max Brallier gives the pick-your-own-path format a devious and very adult twist."
—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and The Dragon Factory
"Funny, smart and damned gruesome. Way too much fun." – David Moody, author of Hater
"A fun pastiche of B-movie zombie fantasy and interactive horror novel . . . A boy’s own adventure that breathes a little well-deserved juvenile humor into the apocalypse." -- Kirkus
"Brallier's book may just be the best thing to happen to literary zombies since Max Brooks." -- Jacksonville Florida Times Union
