Product Description

Product Description

They don't want to hurt you. Because they remember what's it's like — normal times, when things were different, when they were just like you. But it hurts to be them. God, does it ever hurt. Bad enough to claw, bite, scratch, eat, kill away the pain...

James should be dead by now. Instead, he awakens from the sound of gunshots, and the faces of camouflaged paratroopers in his bedroom window. The world, as James knew it, is gone and to make matters worse, something grows inside of him, making it hard to breathe, hard to keep going. James knows what he must do to get rid of it, but for that he’ll need to do unthinkable things, which means becoming the very thing that hunts in the night. To live, he must not only travel outside the barricades. He must also see what they see, feel the pain they feel. James peers into the bottomless black well of the universe, and the black well peers right back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch horror from the pen of a real master 22 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I had the privilege of reading an advanced review copy of Dead Earth and have to say, although not a massive fan of Zombiedom, I loved this superior novel.

Mr Demers has produced a gem of story here with all the classic requirements of the genre - and more. Not just the simple gratuitous violence of the usual zombie gore fests, this is a book with soul and depth, and a little humour thrown in for good measure. And pathos, I defy you not to fall in love little Jade, or empahise with James' condition and desire to fight on despite everything he's lost.

From the use of updated medieval weaponry (the carbon fibre bow) to the chainsaw, and the various military automatic hardware, there's enough action to show a writer of immense talent.

There are enough well written scenes of horror and terror to sate the appetites of the hardest lover of the genre, but there's more - much more.

A great book, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating read! 4 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Zombie books are ten a penny these days (or cheaper!) so it takes something a bit different to stand out from the crowd. This effort by Matt Demers certainly does that. Being the editor of Gore mag, he's got form. And skills. As expected, there is lots of blood and guts, but the story is much more than that. It carries you along at a frantic pace. I read it in about 3 days. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dead boring, more like..... 8 Mar 2014
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I quite like the idea that zombies don't all behave the same. Just like living people don't. It is refreshing to think that the living dead might prefer baked beans on toast, or a light vegan salad to tearing someone's innards out for lunch. But, this book is anything but refreshing. It's half dead protagonist, having little to lose, generates no real tension in otherwise dangerous situations. If he doesn't care, why should I? I had to force myself to the end, hoping for the book to redeem itself eventually. Alas, no. The story drifts from one dull scenario to another. The typos make up much of the entertainment (e.g. the word HALF is used instead of HAVE several times - was the book dictated to a speech-to-type program with hard of hearing?).
Dead Earth 2 will not ever be on my shopping list.

3.0 out of 5 stars good story line but can be confusing 8 April 2014
By April Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story in it self is really good. The main character is well defined but minor characters are a bit lacking. As for the direction the story goes it does get a bit confusing jumping from real time story to dream time story. At first it was hard to tell who the main character was until you really get into the story. This story is a bit strange though as the zombies are not all mindless drones just out for flesh and blood. Can be gory at times but that is about all would reccomend for ages 12 and up due to violence only.

4.0 out of 5 stars More please sir 17 Mar 2014
By Jay Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author writes he would have liked to written more and I would read every word of it. Dead Earth has really interesting characters that pull at your heart strings. Typical end of days setting, think 28 days. Sometimes the action got muddled and I had to use my imagination to fill in the blanks. Overall the story has real promise and I look forward to reading more of his work. Total mind bend he wrote a bio about Rhonda Rousey, wow. I love MMA so I will be checking that out as well.
