It has been one year since the beginning of this journey. I am deeply honored by all of my fans who have embraced The Risen series.

I feel this series is special in that it embraces the human element as well as the telling of classical horror.

Comments from fans about Marie F Crow's zombie apocalypse series:
"FINALLY!!!!! A zombie story that I LIKE!!!!"
"From the beginning to the end...THIS is an amazing zombie apoc story."
"I mean...Zombies...Bikers...the Paranormal? YES PLEASE!"
"With zombie books, one of the greatest pleasures is to be able to get that chill up your spine as you embrace the apocalyptic chaos and atmosphere of death, destruction and despair. That is exactly what Crow does here, she paints the sublime with her words and in doing so creates a lovely and violent story where you can feel each chapter viscerally through her deep descriptions."
"The writing is so descriptive, you feel like you're directly involved in the scene, wanting to scream and run with no place to go but to close the book, but you can't. It's a true page turner. I so can't wait to see what this author has next for us in store. Highly recommend this read!!!"
"Zombie novels are a dime a dozen, and it's almost comical how many there are. We lost the innate fear that zombies have the power to create. But not in this book; this book harkens back to a George A Romero zombie movie, a classic. Not in the plot, but as a real horror story, giving us chills, and sticking with us. Filling our minds with the wonderfully created terror that oh so few authors have the ability to grasp. She gives us the gore that so often has been ignored. Zombie and gore go hand in hand, and I'm glad to see an author who truly understands that."
"Marie F Crow will be a force to be reckoned with in the very near future, this I can already see..."
"An absolute thrill ride throughout, this book will have you flippin the pages, looking over your shoulder at every noise, and reading with the lights on!"
"Kudos to Marie F Crow for such a fantastic read!"
