Riker's Apocalypse
By Shawn Chesser, bestselling author of the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse series. Army veteran Lee Riker is summoned home to Middletown, Indiana for the reading of his mother’s will. Hopeful the inheritance will bring an end to his latest run of bad luck and trouble, Riker boards a bus in Atlanta with a duffel bag and a secret. Riker makes it home and learns his sister has recently witnessed a gruesome death. Insisting she saw the victim rise from a pool of his own blood to attack the Samaritan rendering aid, Tara floats the idea that the man may have been a zombie. While the siblings are comparing Tara's account to the conflicting stories about the event being reported on the news, they are ordered to report to quarantine. With this unexpected turn of events looming, Riker informs Tara of the promise he made to their mother on her deathbed months ago. A promise that requires the Rikers to leave town even as shadowy forces seek to seal it off from the rest of the country—a tall order they soon learn will be easier said than done.

  • Fire: The Collapse on July 06, 2011

    I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Great descriptions made me feel the tension. You pulled no punches with your characters. The second book is on my list! Shawn Chesser
  • Avogadro Corp: The Singularity is Closer than It Appears on Dec. 03, 2011

    ELOPe makes HAL from 2001 A Space Odyssey look like a Texas Instruments calculator from the 80s. In an age of Clouds and intuitive text Hertling's premise brings it all into chilling focus. Fun read!
