Book Description

*This is a young adult book, post-apocalyptic, horror series. Each chronicle will feature Dean's struggles as he tries to survive in this new world. And thus the name, The Zombie Chronicles.

WARNING: All your questions won't be answered in book 1.

I hope you enjoy this series, and thank you for giving book one a chance.*

Welcome to the Apocalypse Infection Unleashed Series.

Prequel to the series: Val

Book 1 – The Zombie Chronicles
Book 2 – Race for the Cure
Book 3 – Deadly City
Book 4 – Poisonous Serum
Book 5 – Undead Nightmare
Book 6 – Revelation
Book 7 – Trepidation (due out in Jan.)
Book 8 – Impact (due out in spring)

Warning: Mild violence. For mature teens or older.


Val was bitten by a zombie and now she’s scheduled for lethal injection. Breaking all the rules, eighteen year old, Dean Walters snags an experimental serum. But it can’t be tested until Val turns into a zombie: something authorities won’t allow. Her execution is scheduled to happen before transformation is complete, giving Dean only hours to break her out.

When their helicopter crashes straight into the heart of Zombie Land, his rescue mission becomes a fight for survival…and giving up on Val is NOT an option.

This is a zombie apocalypse novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Halloween read! 4 Oct. 2012
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Zombie Chronicles" opens with a terrifying scene of two young people stuck on a Ferris wheel when an infected populace of zombies attack, chomping their way through the crowds below.

The book hits the ground running and never stops as we cut to a year later, when Dean and his family are heading for the safety of an island, and he and his brother Nick discover that they have a sister named Val. The bad news is that Val's infected. But Dean thinks he has the cure -- a stolen cache of experimental serum.

The writing here is meaty and intense: "An unmistakable menacing growl erupted from behind me. I held my breath and turned slowly. My hand clutched the sledgehammer more and more tightly as I mentally prepared myself for the unavoidable."

This adrenaline-pumping romp through an apocalyptic future isn't all gut-wrenching terror; it's also full of tender and hopeful moments. The prolific Ms. Peebles specializes in action-packed adventures, and here's one you shouldn't miss. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping! 13 Aug. 2012
By She
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was my first zombie thriller but won't be the last. I could not put this story down which was unfortunate, as I started to read it last night. By 2am I was so tired that I had to leave it, which did not give me an easy night's sleep, as the tale is full of pursuits by biting, rotting, stinking zombies. The storyline is that a couple of brothers break a girl out of a secure facility as she has been bitten by a Walker and will turn into one in five days, so she is destined for lethal disposal. The lads have a vial of secret serum to 'cure' her, (if it works) but she will be the first guinea-pig to try it. On the way to safety, their journey goes horribly wrong and they end up in the infected zone, trying to reach their island home. Various encounters occur and different characters join them with mixed degrees of help and treachery. At the climax of the story, THE BOOK ENDS! You have to continue reading in the next volume! I can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for zombie fans and teens alike 6 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I say teens as the characters are in their teens and early 20's but any age can enjoy this book. I'm loving it I'm only on chapter four so far. It's a really great book written in first person. I don't want to spoil it by explaining it.... I've seen a few zombie flicks and this is different to them all! its written in a new style but it's still about a zombie infestation.
Go for it it's currently free so give it a go see if you like it. I'm glad I did and I think I'll be downloading the series when I'm finished!
6/5* It's just that good. Hope this helps :)
Happy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie series at its best!!! 22 May 2013
By DeeQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased the first book in the series when it was a free download. I was hooked after about 10 pages! The scenes that involve the characters meeting the the zombies are so well written I could feel my heart rate increase due to the tense atmosphere that is created.

I went on to purchase the remaining 3 in the series (I can't wait for book 5) and ultimately read all four books in the series over the space of a long weekend.

Gripping stuff with an amazing twist in book 4.

If you like zombie stories, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray 4 Zombies 30 Sept. 2014
By tassy
Format:Kindle Edition
The Zombie Chronicles (Apocalypse Infection Unleashed, #1)
by Chrissy Peebles is a superb teenage horror novel and a must read for all zombie fans. The author's style is fresh and exhilarating full of tongue-in-cheek descriptions and zombie in-jokes - such as - "Besides, I'm pretty sure you like me for my brains and not my looks."
3 siblings Dean the 1st person POV, his brother Nick and long-lost sister Val, team up to fight the undead hordes that have swept across America. The action is furious and wonderfully gory and the descriptions of the zombies are pure brilliance. This reader could not get enough of the author's awesome style, the clever storyline, the cool characters and the way the scenes blended one to the other with seamless momentum.
The cliffhanger ending knocked me for a loop and made me scream. Thank goodness the author has published the series or this reader would be gnawing his fingernails to the bone. Yummy!!
FIVE STARS for this YA Horror and very highly recommended.

A series of well thought out books that have me on the edge of my seat every time I read them, in some scenes I am literally hiding behind my hands because they're so well written! A good read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a download. 26 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good book and an enjoyable read. In principle, a good idea behind the book. I enjoyed the brother - sister plot, and the race to save loved ones from turning into zombies. However, some characters' development seemed unnatural and unrealistic, with a totally unbelievable love story subplot going on, and too much time devoted to it. The action scenes were really well written with vivid narrative descriptions. I downloaded this book for free, and although there is room for a second part to the story, I won't be downloading it, purely because there is so much space in the story given to two characters, two annoyingly pathetic girls, who are pretty much superfluous to it, and they survived the final scenes of the first.
