Product Description

Product Description

Note: Set in the same alternate history universe, the stories of the Carpathia Timeline stand alone, although some characters appear in both books.

France, 1916: The Great War in Western Europe is at a stalemate with the Allies and Central Powers facing each other from muddy trenches on either side of the deadly No Man’s Land. To end the years of bloody warfare, the Germans plan to unleash the perfect weapon in a villainous attack that will guarantee an unconditional victory over France and Britain.

Bullet-proof and impervious to shellfire, a horde of the undead is about to sweep over Europe in a wave of unrestrainable death. Except no one told the Germans two things: anyone killed by the bite of a zombie becomes a zombie ... and zombies don't pick sides.

To stop the Germans, an elite team of British soldiers led by Major Daniel O'Brien set out on a daring raid behind enemy lines. But in war no plan survives intact, and when the Germans lose control of their perfect weapon O'Brien's group, including two vampires and a raconteur dame, must fight their way aboard a highly-armed German airship to halt the spread of the zombie plague throughout Europe.

The Devil’s Harvest, an action-packed Steampunk/paranormal thriller and the second book in The Carpathia Timeline, is set thirty years after the events of Carpathia.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Alternative History Romp - with Zombies 16 July 2014
By Sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one appealed to me from the outset as I’m a fan of alternative history. What if Hitler hadn’t opened a second front? What if Kennedy had caved to Khrushchev? What if the Germans had unleashed the ultimate weapon on the fields of Europe in 1916? But what if that weapon is impossible to control? Give me a zombie over a vampire any day as I can outrun a zombie and they provide an alternative use for a cricket bat – none of that silver bullet and holy water dilemma. But the idea of the zombie as a weapon works here because the author captures the disconnect that lies between the characters’ perception and belief, allowing the disease to spread quickly and for the horror to be compounded.

Although the story moves swiftly, I was surprised how quickly I became engaged with the characters. Even so, the problem with a zombie story is how engagement with a large segment of the cast is lost to any emotional involvement – not a criticism of the writer, only the genre - but this author worked hard at that with a roll call of characters to root for and care about.

This story was more intensely plotted and less linear than the previous story and therefore, I felt, the stronger for it. Again, as with Carpathia, there was a strong sense of time and place with the language and detail fitting in with the invented period and I read this compelling story quickly, wanting to see how it all would be resolved high in the air above Europe in a powerful aerial battle between steam-powered airships.

An exciting second novel in the Carpathia series. Well written with characters that are believable and draw you into the story. A great second novel, I look forward to the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb, zombie, steampunk read! 29 Jun 2013
By Tammy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Great read! Zombies, check. Thrills, check. Steampunk airship battles and trench warfare that are written so realistically that you feel like you're there, CHECK! Author Scott Whitmore has created one of the finest zombie-steampunk novels I've had the pleasure of reading. The characters are a "gas" (if you'll pardon the pun regarding airships/dirigibles), the grit of the WWI setting is perfectly drawn, and the story is just plain fun. As a former Navy man, Scott has a refined sense of war tactics, which really shine through in Devil's Harvest and make the story feel realistic despite its cast of supernaturals. This is Scott's second novel, and now I can't wait to read the first, Carpathia (Carpathia Timeline)!
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 27 Jun 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed this little cracker from Scott Whitmore. It reminded me of a film in production in the UK at the moment regarding soldiers from the first world war that become zombies on the battlefield. The author crafted a good plot and rendered a very entertaining piece of fiction to the reader. No hesitation in recommending same.
