Hunter of the Dead by Katee RobertI’ll tell you a secret—growing up, I despised horror. Absolutely hated it. So imagine my dubious joy to end up dating a guy who was a total horror-freak (we never, ever, have to talk about being cajoled into watching Saw in theaters… ever). It was with him that I first watched the original Night of the Living Dead.

After that, I was hooked on zombies. I devoured everything George Romero put out and spent hours talking about the movies.

But it wasn’t until later, when I read Max Brooks’ Zombie Survival Guide that I lost my really damn mind for those shambling flesh-eating creatures. It was only years later, when reading it again for the God-knows-how-many time, that my authorly brain perked up.

You see, ZSG is written for your average Joe. Someone like me, who doesn’t have any crazy survival skills (which is why I will throw in my lot with rednecks, no questions asked), or who doesn’t know a damn thing about zombies or how to find shelter or how to defend yourself. All this knowledge is conveyed on a beginner-type level.

So what did my authorly brain whisper? What if there was a team designed solely to take out zombies? What would that look like? And so Eden’s team came into being. This is a group of people who are outfitted with cutting-edge technology and weapons, who don’t have to be told “Remove the head or destroy the brain.” Killing the undead is what they do, what they’ve always done.

And so Hunter of the Dead was born.


THE AUTHOR


Katee Robert learned the art of storytelling at her grandfather’s knee. Some of her favorites revolved around The Three Bears, though later on in life she gravitated towards books and movies with a darker edge.

Now living in Eastern Washington, she spends her time — in between planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse — writing YA horror and speculative romance novels.


THE BOOK


Hunter of the Dead by Katee Robert

Publisher: Mundania PressRelease Date: June 2012
Buy It: Amazon UK / Amazon US

Eighteen-year-old Eden Rosenberg knows how to kill and she’s damn good at it. Until recently, her life was pretty easy–get a call from her team’s mysterious employer, jet off to a new location, kill some zombies. But the most recent call is different from the others. Instead of being an isolated incident in the middle of nowhere, it’s an entire village at risk. By the time the team shows up, the village is empty, leaving only a handful of infected wandering the streets. Or so it seems until they’re ambushed by far too many zombies for their five-person team to deal with.

On the run and trapped within the valley, Eden is separated from her team when she tries to save a little girl from the inevitable fate of the bitten. To make matters worse, she’s forced to rely on Alejandro, the one man she swore never to trust again, to watch her back. She hasn’t seen him since he walked away from the team–from her–a year ago and she’s not even sure what he’s doing in the valley in the first place As Eden races to reunite with her team, she’ll have to deal with a homicidal priest who’s more than what he seems and a group of survivors she’s pretty sure are too stupid to live. But things are more complicated than she realized and soon Eden’s forced to confront the truth about the infection; it isn’t an accident and those responsible will do anything to ensure no one gets out of the valley alive.

Either Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland. I like the darker Dawn of the Dead and others, but the ones with humour will always win.
