Product Description

Synopsis

Something bad has happened in Nevada. No one knows what it is for sure. Rumors fly about plagues and secret government experiments. And the President isn't talking. In Serenity, New Mexico, Deputy Sheriff Jubal Slate has his hands full. It seems that half the town, including his mother and his boss, are sick from an unusual malady. Even more worrisome is the oddly-colored dawn sky. Then a stranger crashes through town, a woman with a nightmarish story about what really happened in the Nevada desert. Soon, the towns people of Serenity start dying. And they won't stay dead.

A couple of spoilers ahead...

An interesting take on the zombie apocalypse with a few differences to set it apart from the average story (differences like a bite doesn't necessarily 'turn' the victim into a zombie; and the inclusion of an alien menace makes a nice twist at the end I feel).

Well written and good characterisation of the protagonist, setting up a good background for the full length novel Dead Earth: The Vengeance Road. A couple of things in the story were reminiscent of Stephen King's "The Stand", especially the shared dreams between characters.

One of the better short stories I've read in this genre.

This is a short book of tropes, which isn't entirely unexpected in a zombie-type novel, but sadly most of them have been done better. Everything from the sick love interest, death of a relative/trusted friend (this book does both, because apparently one wasn't enough), the government conspiracy, the out-of-their-depth would-be hero.... there's really nothing new here.

All of that is entirely forgiveable, if the story is pulled off with style and skill. Now, the author here has a ton of skill, I'm not going to short-change them on that... but there's no real style. Everything comes across as flat and listless, with no real sense of depth or personality. There are some nice descriptions, but the story feels very 'paint by numbers', as if the author read/watched a load of other zombie stories/movies, and decided to cut and paste the bits that they liked into a new tale. Sadly, it hasn't quite come together. There's a lot of preamble, but once the first zombie arrives there are suddenly loads of them, as if the virus suddenly speeds up its progress just because the main character knows what's happening. Maybe it was meant to give the story a cinematic feel, but in truth it just felt a bit muddled.

Another thing that really bothered me and added to the muddled feeling: the main character notes how people in movies take everything in their wake while spouting one liners, and decides that's unrealistic. Within pages, he's doing near enough the exact same thing himself, and without explanation or elaboration, it just feels like poor storytelling.

There are some elements that you won't find in other zombie stories, but they came in too late and were frankly too banal to really add much life (ha!) to the set-up.

Dead Earth: The Green Dawn is a rather good if not wholly original zombie story. It fails as a stand alone novella as it reads like the opening few chapters of a longer book. It is a taster of work to come and as such it would be rather irritating to pay for it.

A small town with a BIG problem.

This is well written with a good explanation for the zombies even if the ending does feel a little rushed. However it is the first part of series and perhaps should be judged on the length.

Without giving away spoilers. It is the story of a small town deputy at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse.

Who can resist a good Zombie Apocolyspe? Not me, thats for sure. Whether this will become a classic piece of literature, is not the point. I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn't wait to read the next page. The ending was a bit weak, but I suppose there's going to be a sequel, which will pick up where this left off.
