Product Description

Eight months ago vampires released the Revenant Virus on humanity. Both species were nearly wiped out.

For Mike Robson, the situation could be far worse. He’s joined up with a small band of humans and the last coven of vampires who are riding out the zombie apocalypse in an old fort along the coast of southern Maine.

The group’s uneasy alliance is strained by the arrival of the creator of the Revenant Virus. He claims there is a vaccine that will make them immune to the virus, but it’s located in a secure underground facility five hundred miles away.

To retrieve the vaccine, Robson leads a raiding party of humans and vampires down the devastated East Coast. Yet none of the horrors Robson has faced match what awaits in the underground facility…

"With ROTTER WORLD, Scott M. Baker pulls out all the stops in a zombie thriller that is brutal, violent and terrifying. Definitely not for the faint-hearted."--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of PATIENT ZERO and DEAD OF NIGHT

"Think there are no new or original zombie authors? Think again. Scott M. Baker provides an exciting voice and fresh outlook on the undead. Fun, compulsive reading."--Brian Keene, author of THE RISING and CITY OF THE DEAD

"Scott M. Baker writes in the tradition of J.L. Bourne and Joe McKinney. Fans of thriller writers like Brad Thor will also find powerful, welcome similarities in ROTTER WORLD."--Scott Kenemore, author of ZOMBIE, OHIO

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombies: Bringing Vampires and Humans Together 22 May 2012
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The plot: mad scientist creates zombie virus, vampires (tired of being hunted) steal the virus and release it amongst the human population, plan backfires when the undead hunt humans AND vampires, and vampires unwittingly wipe out most of their food supply. Desperate, one coven joins a human survivor compound under the flag of truce, but both sides have mixed feelings; the situation is further complicated when a scientist arrives at the compound claiming to have a vaccine in his lab. The trick is getting through hordes of undead rotters (slow) and swarmers (fast) to retrieve the vaccine and research notes, requiring a team comprised of humans and vampires. A gritty & disturbing story of redemption on many levels, as team members try to make up for past mistakes.

The beginning was a little slow as thoughts and memories of various survivors paint a picture of what happened during the initial outbreak of the zombie apocalypse, including the history between the vampires and humans, but it proved to be a solid foundation for the story. It answered all of my initial questions, and made the storyline more believable.

There is a LOT of dialogue throughout the entire novel, showcasing the personalities of each character. Despite the large cast, Baker did a great job of giving depth to even the most minor characters. There were a variety of relationships woven into the action, holding my interest, even when the survivors weren't fighting for their lives.

While the ending left me wanting more, Baker was kind enough to avoid using a cliff-hanger, leaving only the fate of the compound to the imagination. I believe there is a sequel in the works, and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clash of the Undead 6 July 2012
By Patrick S. Dorazio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rotter World starts out in the post apocalyptic environs of Maine, where a group of survivors that have set up a safe haven and are asked to go after a small group trapped and surrounded by zombies out in the wastelands by their leader, which is a far more dangerous undertaking than normal. But they soon discover why they've been asked to take such a risk when they conduct the rescue and recover a doctor who claims to have created a vaccination for the undead virus. This virus was created by the government but was never intended to be used as a weapon...at least not until vampires stole it and unleashed it upon the human world with the hopes of preventing the living from wiping them out for good.
Among these survivors is a small band of vampires who have made a truce with the humans. Their race did unleashed the virus, not realizing that the zombies created with the plague would crave vampire flesh as much as human and proceed to find root out the vamps when they were at their most vulnerable-during daylight hours while they sleep. Now the few that remain must work side by side with those they once considered to be cattle to avoid going extinct.
The rescued doctor proposes a mission for the survivors. He needs to get to his government lab in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to retrieve his research and craft the initial doses of the vaccine. They survivors will serve as his escort through rotter infested lands. They agree but insist that most of the vamps go along with them despite the fact that the doctor, along with his military escort, despise the vampire race and would like nothing more than to see them all wiped out for the curse they unleashed on humanity.
Rotter World starts out at a slow pace, with plenty of flashbacks to get the reader up to speed with most of the characters, then picks up speed as the mission to Gettysburg gets underway. The action is intense and the gore graphic enough to satisfy most zompoc fans. The conflicts between the humans and vamps are interesting, but I wished they had been explored in great depth. The vamps in this story are, for lack of a better word, honorable. They avoid causing conflicts with the humans and tend to avoid getting near anyone who don't trust them or even hates them. It would have been interesting to see more of the dark side of the blood suckers, even though there is plenty of human drama to deal with in this tale. As is the case with most quality zombie tales, the flesh eaters are a nightmarish menace but they are nothing compared to the few devious humans who tend to cause far more trouble than the undead ever could for the rest of the survivors.
I enjoyed this story, especially toward the end when things got quite intense and the danger everyone was facing felt tangible and made my heart race. The author offers up a creative new twist on the traditional zombie tale with the introduction of another undead race. Plenty of the human and vampire characters were well developed and gave me someone to root for (and to root against). The story can certainly stand on its own though I suspect the author will be crafting a sequel, which won't elicit any complaints from me-I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next with those who made it through to the last page of Rotter World.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Gore makes it worth the read 13 May 2012
By PrincessPixistixx(WonderlandReviews) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This has been a great month to read zombie stories, normally I am a huge coward, not the girliest of girls whenever I find myself watching zombie flicks or even reading them, I jump at the tiniest of noise and hide behind my hands as I wait for it to be over.
This book deffinetly didn't skimp on the gore or grime as you go from one story to the next, following their path from multiple poins of view.

This book deffinetly had a Resident Evil feel to me. It was as if they decided to follow someone else instead of the main charachter's and while they traveled in search of the cure for the virus that had turned people into the flesh eating zombie's that had over run the earth, you get the vampires thrown into the mix.

That was one of the best thing's about it, you have a mix of all three big bad monster's in the world, and yes I classify the humans as a monster mainly because of the way humanity seems to have slid downards on the moral scale.

There was deffinetly a varity of emotion when it came to the vampires, you had an equal number of people for them being a part of the camp and team and other's ready to destroy them, rather for their own reason's or because of a fanatic belief.
I also loved the fact that the humans were not the only one's facing extincton, that the vampires also found themselves falling prey to the disease.

If you are in the mood for some kick butt action scene's full of gore and blood as bodies are ripped apart and zombies are plowed through, and somehow people manage to find a way to fall in love, then this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rotter World Review from All Things Writing 8 May 2012
By Mary Ann Loesch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rotter World...the title already conjures some strong images. The book contains some even stronger ones. Of course, that's to be expected in a tale about zombies, vampires, and the military. Now before you go thinking that this is another 28 Days, Resident Evil, or Walking Dead rip off, let me just set you straight. Sure, it has some of the same qualities, but I found that this book by Scott M. Baker managed to take on a life of its own and be a really interesting, if graphic, story about mankind's survival after a zombie apocalypse.

So let's get to it! Here is the synopsis from the book:

Eight months ago vampires released the Revenant Virus on humanity. Both species were nearly wiped out.

For Mike Robson, the situation could be far worse. He joined up with a small band of humans and the last coven of vampires who are riding out the zombie apocalypse in an old fort along the coast of southern Maine.

The group's uneasy alliance is strained by the arrival of the creator of the Revenant Virus. He claims there is a vaccine that will make them immune to the virus, but it's located in a secure underground facility five hundred miles away.
To retrieve the vaccine, Robson leads a raiding party of humans and vampires down the devastated East Coast. Yet none of the horrors Robson has faced match what awaits in the underground facility.

Yeah, I'm gonna agree. What waited in the facility was pretty bad and one of the reasons I love the cover of this book. It captures a moment that was riveting in the novel!

I think Mr. Baker did a great job of creating sympathetic characters that have gone through a lot. Robson, the protagonist, is especially well done. He's the everyman who's been beaten down my guilt over an incident that was really beyond his control. The camp relies on him, as does, Natalie who falls for him. Their relationship is sweet to watch and I found myself worried about what would happen to them in the end. By the way, Mr. Baker, great sex scene!

I like the vampire element in this book, too. The vamps are the bad guys who realize they've made a big mistake in releasing the zombie virus. It practically wipes out their entire race and causes them to join forces with the humans. Of course, not everyone is on board with this kind of alliance which just adds tension to the plot. O'Bannon is an awesome bad guy, and as a reader, you can't help but root for the zombies and hope they get him in the end.

My only complaint is that I wanted more. I got plenty, but I wanted to know what happened next. Did they get back to camp? Did everyone get vaccinated? Sequel, please!

If you can't tell, I highly recommend Rotter World by Scott M. Baker. Keep in mind it does contain some graphic violence and is not for the faint of heart! Pregnant women should consider reading it only if they want to give birth early. People with heart problems should probably take their pills first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting solid story with zombies and vampires 18 Jan 2014
By Kim O'Hair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Strong female warriors, well-conceived battle scenes and thoroughly disgusting zombies with the attendant reeks, fluids and maggots, flies and wasps. Yuck!!! Don't plan on eating while reading. Hope to read more from the author about this world. Recommended for zompoc and vampire enthusiasts.
