Product description

Review

''Comics writer Carey delivers an entertaining take on several well-worn zombie tropes . . . [Carey] builds well-constructed characters - particularly Melanie, one of the zombified children, who comes across as cognitively and emotionally different from the other characters, without feeling like an offensive parody of a person with Asperger's. The requisite action sequences are also well constructed, and the book will appeal to fans of zombie fiction.'' --Publishers Weekly

''The story of Melanie and the people around her is so thoughtfully crafted, so heartfelt, remorseless, and painfully human, that it takes the potentially tired trope of the zombie apocalypse and makes it as fresh as it is terrifying. The story spirals towards a conclusion so surprising, so warm and yet so chilling, that it takes a moment to realize it's been earned since the first page, and even before. It left me sighing with envious joy, like I'd been simultaneously offered flowers and beaten at chess. A jewel.'' --Joss Whedon

''Astute readers will pick up on the truth of Melanie's situation very early on, but that doesn't make the portrait Carey sketches in the first section of this fine, vivid novel any less skillfully drawn; once everything goes to hell and his considerably reduced cast goes on the run, he fleshes out his characters even more. In less capable hands, this could have been a stock story with stock types, but the people here, and their relationships, are so compelling that they elevate the story into something worth caring about.'' --RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

''A great read that takes hold of you and doesn't let go.'' --John Ajvide Lindqvist, New York Times bestselling author

''Carey offers a post-apocalyptic tale set in England in a future when most humans are 'empty houses where people used to live' . . . One of the more imaginative and ingenious additions to the dystopian canon.'' --Kirkus

Book Description
