Product Description

Product Description

The Scattered and the Dead saga continues in this short volume featuring four returning point of view characters and two new ones.

Survival. Murder. Snow.

Winter is here. The cold spreads over the land, shriveling and choking out all the plant life. Harsh. Unforgiving. The first winter without electricity will surely claim more human lives as well.

The isolation may do more damage than the cold, however. Too much time alone drives people to unthinkable acts.

Praise for The Scattered and the Dead series:

"This book is comparable to The Stand by Stephen King in terms of just how damn good it is... I'm a hardcore Stephen King fan and I don't say this lightly. This book is amazing." - Rain

"Strong character development, brilliant story telling, and undercurrents of spot on dark humor." - Michele

"Dark and fast-paced with vivid imagery... In some ways it reminded me of Stephen King's classic, 'The Stand.'" - Michael J

"Tim McBain and L.T. Vargus have written yet another spectacular and vivid story." - Heather DiAngelis

"Thrilling. Meaningful. My new favourite series." - GC MacQuarie

"Between the crazy ass characters, the pictures painted and the emotional zombie roller coaster, this is a must freakin read... like now." - C. Munger

There is a point - a moment in time - when a writer works their way into your top five, and in this case, it's a duo. It's become natural that when I'm passed a book by McBain and Vargus that I get a little giddy and fuzzy inside, knowing that inside the cover, there is a dark and wonderful place I will soon be engrossed in. A world of realistic characters that will push the boundaries.

In this case, it was the next installment of The Scattered and the Dead series, Book 1.5. For those who have followed the rest of the series, you will already know that this is the second of the 'in between' books - the second of a collection that exists within the world of the survivors - just one of the remarkable twists in this series. This time, we follow the lives of some recurring characters as well as some new characters that so wonderfully intertwine with the story we already know.

Is there a point where I have to step down from my reviewer's platform because of my intense love of anything these writer's throw at me? Or is it a perk of the job? I'm going to go with the latter, and it's simple why. As I've followed the work of McBain and Vargus over several books and two series, I've watched them grow. Blossom. Their unique style is paramount to their growing success, and it is no doubt the reason they will become household names in the future.

Their writing is fearless. Vivid. Brilliantly twisted. Every time I pick up their next offering I find that first paragraph that explains the world in such an altered way and remember why I can't get enough.

So what is so wonderful about these writers? I've read reviews comparing McBain and Vargus to King (another author in my top five), a compliment that cannot be topped, and it is nothing but the truth.

So here we are at book 3 in the Scattered and the Dead Series, the 2nd novella and also an in-universe volume of 'Postcards from an Empty World', a series which is collated from the leftover journals and letters that one of the main characters distributes and has indeed gained a fair bit of celebrity in a world that has no more social media or any media at all!

Following just 3 people(with in introduction by Baghead and a little tease of Decker, the subject of book 0.5, at the end), we look at the effects that isolation can cause, with a new character's slow decent into paranoia being a chilling and twisted road. At the same time we get a series of letters from 2 survivors as they try their best to make something safe and 'normal' in a post-apocalyptic world in which nothing is safe, normal or even recognizable at times.

The Authors are doing great so far to give each character their own voice and as per usual, there is plenty of slightly bent and twisted things happening to keep your heart pumping the whole time through this quick read, this taste to keep you sated until the next big book comes through the pipeline.

At times Twisted, at times sweet with the shadow of darkness behind every page, if you haven't picked up this series yet, you really should! The best thing about this book and book 0.5 before it is that if you are unsure as to if you wanna pick the main series up, they are short little introductions into the wider SATD world that can be read on their own!!
