What would you do if you woke up in the middle of nowhere, alone, and with no recollection of how you got there? It was a quiet day in the small village of Kinver in western England...almost too quiet for Ursula, a young investigative reporter who found herself in the middle of a government secret experiment that took place in the nearby Drakelow Tunnels, barely getting out of there alive. She roams the abandoned streets of the village, with a bloody knife in her hands, trying desperately to remember what happened to her. All of a sudden, she realises that she is not alone, and that the inhabitants of the village are not as friendly as she thought.

Russ Watts creates suspense with every word he writes in his novel Zombie Empire, leading the reader through this apocalyptic story in a very innovative and unusual way. He makes us care for the characters, using elaborate tellings of their stories in the process, imagining what would happen if all of a sudden the whole world found itself on the verge of an apocalypse, facing a threat bigger than life itself. Russ Watts' Zombie Empire offers an intriguing version of an apocalyptic scenario, inviting the reader to become completely immersed in this dystopian story of epic proportions, each time following a different character and witnessing their destinies first hand, observing how the world gets more horrific and smaller by the minute. It is impossible to put down this novel before reading it through to the very end!
