We here at Aconyte Books are very excited to report that we have joined forces with CMON in the fight against the Undead. Here’s just the first of our new line of novels inspired by the darkly action-packed game Zombicide!
ZOMBICIDE: LAST RESORT, by Josh Reynolds, is coming to shelves and devices in early November 2021. No, this isn’t a book about where zombies go on holiday or a spa retreat after feasting on too many brains. In Last Resort, we find that the current zombie apocalypse has driven humanity up into the Adirondack Mountains, in Northeastern Upstate New York, in search of somewhere safer to hide out.
Enter Westlake, a hardened career criminal, who’s searching for “The Villa”, a legendary organized crime hideout, a last resort if you will, where he can escape the devastation. When he’s ambushed by the undead, an old FBI “friend” and his squad of survivors rescue him… and then force him to reveal his secrets. The possibly mythical Villa suddenly becomes a realistic chance of salvation for the local survivors. Reluctantly, Westlake agrees to a motley band through minefields, trip wires, and oodles of flesh-eating zombies at every turn to reach their safe haven. Shame there’s already someone living there…
Check out the suitably mayhem-filled cover which we’re showing off for the first time here. We’re particularly fond of the surprisingly cunning-looking Zombo in the bottom left corner — any suggestions for a nickname?
Out: 2 Nov 2021
