Age of the Undead

A Zombicide Novel

By C L Werner

In a fantasy realm shattered by the zombie apocalypse, a bold Knight must enlist unlikely allies while discovering the source of undead corruption, in this darkly humorous adventure from the bestselling game range, Zombicide: Black Plague

When Knight Alaric von Mertz loses his family to a ravenous zombie horde, he swears revenge on the necromancer responsible. But a quest forvengeance is no easy matter in a world overrun by the walking dead. Joined by a sharp-tongued rogue, a witch hunter with secret knowledge, a novice wizard, and a dwarfdemolition master, Alaric’s journey leads him from magical fire moats to the zombie-ridden catacombs of the witch hunters to uncover a spell book of insurmountable power. As zombies claw and bite, Alaric fears he will never avenge his family. For in this age of the undead, betrayal and magic lurk around every corner, spelling either doom or salvation for them all.


“SCIENCE! In the pursuit of ever greater levels of productivity, Man has twisted plants and animals to his own ends. In so doing, we inadvertently changed ourselves. Now, shambling killing machines roam the ruins of our world. The time has come for… ZOMBICIDE!”

The zombie apocalypse is here – and you’re stuck right in the middle of it. With undead hordes on every side, the survivors must band together to fight back against the lurching, brain-hungry menace. Pick your weapons and get stuck in. It’s going to get messy…
