Book Description

Voyage of the Dead is the first book of the Sovereign Spirit Saga about survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse. Most of them are aboard a ship that is well equipped to survive the end of civilization, while others struggle to survive in a world suddenly overrun by undead cannibals. This is an apocalyptic adventure set within a horror genre, full of blood, guts, violence and the human emotions that fuel our survival instincts. While some scenes include graphic violence, it is intended to be more exciting than disgusting and more about using your brains than eating them. Welcome Aboard and Bon Voyage!

Book length is 100,000 words. This is the edited and revised edition. The sequels, "Flotilla of the Dead" and "Deluge of the Dead" are also available on Amazon.

Note: The best pricing (even if you get "Voyage of the Dead" for free), is the trilogy edition of "Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One" at

Rave Reviews for Voyage of the Dead & Sovereign Spirit Saga:

"The Sovereign Spirit Saga takes the zombie apocalypse in a disturbing new direction. David P. Forsyth brings a fresh, exciting voice to the genre and keeps the thrills coming hard and fast." - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of ROT AND RUIN, FALL OF NIGHT and CODE ZERO

“…Without a doubt one of the better Zombie books…" -- Anthony Wessel, reviewer at The Kindle Book Review and founder of

"What a truly entertaining read. I started reading on Friday morning and couldn't put the book down until I finished. Not just your everyday, run-of-the-mill, ho-hum story of the apocalypse." -- Paul Jones, author of "Extinction Point" and "Towards Yesterday"

"Gorey, pulpy, zombie fun! Basically it's the A-Team meets Battlestar Galactica meets The Walking Dead. If this were a show I'd watch it." -- Nathan Yocum, author of "The Zona"

"This is one of those books that starts with a bang and I read waiting for the pace to slacken, except it doesn't. Too often, books of this kind start out with an action scene, and then we get chapters of backfill and descriptions of the soap opera-like travails of our characters. While Forsyth indeed fills in the characterizations, the key quality of this book is that most valuable in any kind of thriller--PACING." John S. Walsh, author of "Love Has A Taste"

“The Walking Dead meets Battlestar Gallactica! This novel has all the ingredients for an epic series of books and would be great for television too. It's like a Star Trek of the Zombie Apocalypse...” Tom McWilliams

“A zombie lover’s wet dream! [It’s] very tense, visceral, and a joy to read.” Joseph Rosenthal.

This is the first novel by David P. Forsyth.
Other books in the Sovereign Spirit Saga include:
"Flotilla of the Dead"
"Deluge of the Dead"
"Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One" (trilogy edition)
"LUKAN: Sovereign Spirit Saga Prequel Novelette"
"Interludes in Hell: Sovereign Spirit Prequels" (includes LUKAN)
Volume 2 of the Saga will be released in 2014.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of a war story than a horror story. 8 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very different take on the standard zombie story.

Most of the action is from the viewpoint of a group of people fortunate to be on an exteremely well equipped explorations vessel at the time of the outbreak. As the story proceeds they gather a flotilla of other vessels in a journey of survival. (yes it does feel a lot like battlestar galactica- but its a favorable comparison)

Its much more focused on solutions than problems, Think of it as an engineers approach to the apocalypse.
As such its full of hardware - ships , helicopters, modified cars etc with which to mangle zombies.
The cast never quite seems to be in any terror of the zombies, which is a downside . Theres very little sense of horror - even early on. Its quite clinical.

Also an aside from the traditional horror - there is a plan - the survivors here have a plan from day one - so it feels more like a traditionally structured novel than most other genre books.

Possibly too little emotion and too much hardware - but an intersting addition to the genre well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly addictive zombie fiction! 31 July 2012
By Martin Belcher VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an incredible read! This is a lot different from the usual Zombie formula and is set aboard the Sovereign Spirit an old North Sea roll on roll off ferry that has been turned into a mega luxury ship by billionaire Scott Allen and his family. The boat has every luxury you can name from bowling alley to cinema to casino and Internet cafe all on board. Scott has also fitted out the Soverign Spirit with it's own helicopter, mini-sub, SUV, stacks of weaponry and even a marine laboratory. Scott's idea is to spend his fortune sailing the oceans and taking his friends and paying passengers on exclusive round-the-world cruises with all manner of excursions included. Everything is well in Scott's world until almost simultaneously in big cities around the globe people start to turn into flesh eating zombies attacking others and quickly spreading the infection across the planet. From the safety of his ship in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Northern Mexico, Scott has a ring side seat as he watches the TV news networks show what could be the end of society as we know it. Can Scott and his passengers find survivors on the coast? I absolutely loved this first book in the Sovereign Spirit saga, many other reviewers have said it is like The Walking Dead meets Battlestar Galactica... All I can say is I LOVED IT and I have already bought the next book Flotilla of the Dead on Kindle.Flotilla of the Dead (Sovereign Spirit Saga)

4.0 out of 5 stars A different survivor viewpoint. 9 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A novel twist on the zombie appocalipse front, having a group of survivors at sea when the outbreak occurs. However not all of the action is at sea as we also follow a survivor on land as he battles his way across an infected city, will their paths cross at some point?

Also has an interesting twist to the zombie virus, and a novel way to hold them at bay, I will say no more. As of writing this review I'm about 1/3 the way through book 3 and I believe there will be more in this series released this year, so check it out, you maybe pleasantly suprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good first in series 9 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast paced action but with a feeling of remoteness arising from the main characters isolation from the events unfolding on land. A wee bit as though they are playing a video game rather than facing a for real E.L.E.
The characters are not bad though, and the story line is gripping - lets see how it goes from here, I am certainly buying the next one in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars A unique take on the zombie apocalypse 3 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A refreshingly original take on the zombie apocalypse. The characters are well rounded, the story packs plenty of punch and lots of action. The plot progresses well and leaves the reader entertained and yet wanting more (as it is the first book in a series). Well done. Highly recommended! I will be buying more books from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping 11 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loving this series so far, just ordered the next book and can't wait to get stuck in. Although it's a zombie book it's a different take on it, rather. Than the normal running through the streets being attacking kind of thing. I won't say too much so as not to spoil the story line but I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Not to be Missed 24 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best zombie action novels I have read! It's Clive Cussler meets Max Brooks. This reads more like an action adventure where the enemy just happens to be zombies.
One day I too would like to take a trip on that ship even if it means fighting off the zombie hordes.
