The Best of Tomes of the Dead, Volume One

Tomes of the Dead 1

The Zombie Apocalypse starts here…

The masters of flesh-munchingly, gut-wrenchingly, eyeball-poppingly great zombie fiction bring you three of the best books from the first years of the critically-acclaimed Tomes of the Dead line.

The Words of Their Roaring: In a London overrun by the zombie hordes, former thief Gabe O’Connell’s loyalty to his employer Harry Flowers is challenged when a routine job goes south and he uncovers the full extent of the gang lord’s plans for the city.

I, Zombie: John Doe has been dead for ten years. If the price is right, he’ll kill for you, steal for you, or save your life for you. There’s no mystery you can’t hire him to solve… except for the secret behind his own existence. A secret that could end all life on Earth.

Anno Mortis: Beautiful and deadly, the gladiator Boda is brought to Rome in the reign of Caligula, where she uncovers a plot to breach the barrier between life and death. For all that she hates her captors and their decadent city, she may be the empire’s only hope.
