With zombie culture taking the world by storm, Daniel J. Williams’ latest book proves that there’s always a fresh perspective from which the Apocalypse can unravel.
Roseville, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2012 -- For those who are both hooked by Zombie culture and willing to question their own spirituality, Daniel J. Williams’ latest novel provides the perfect literary treat. In fact, ‘Mace of the Apocalypse’ is so powerful that it could bring to light the darkness within each of us.
“On a beautiful spring afternoon in San Francisco a deadly toxin is released. Within hours it spreads like wildfire, consuming the entire Bay Area. A small group of survivors, desperate to stay alive, must travel through a gauntlet of raging corpses, battling their inner demons and each other along the way.
Through a priest, they gain access to a partial antidote. Holing up in a hospital in an attempt to create a safe zone, everything they believe in will be questioned. The antidote, they soon discover, is almost as dangerous as the infection.
Things unravel within their walls as a teenage gang deliberately infects themselves after receiving the partial cure. They revel in the power it gives them. Believing in their invincibility, they declare war on all who get in their way.
Alliances will be challenged. Faith will be lost. Lives will be surrendered.
None of them will ever be the same.”
As the author explains, Zombies and their culture are currently more popular than ever.
“The zombie apocalypse has now become part of our pop culture. Blogs, television series, movies, and even the CDC have taken part in embracing the phenomenon,” says Williams.
He continues, “The story in Mace of the Apocalypse takes a unique view of the event, questioning the spiritual relevance and darkness within all of us.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.
“This book starts out with a bang and never lets you go. It's a truly frightening world they find themselves living in and it's very interesting to see the different ways that people react and adjust to their new surroundings. The characters were so vivid and some of them so relatable that I found myself wanting to jump in and hang out with them (in a safe place, of course.)” says Sarah Barber, who reviewed the book for Amazon.
Another reader, RandiTS, was equally impressed. They said that, “I recommend this book for a great change in pace from the normal zombie book and for the fact that it will make you think not about how to get food and guns to survive but how it will affect a group that normally isn't talked about - the orphaned children.”
In short, this compelling piece of Zombie fiction is unlike anything ever written before.
