The seven deadly sins with a shambling twist.
Winter is coming. As the survivors prepare for freezing months without electricity and not enough food, they learn of massive zombie herds several hundred miles north and headed their way.
The search for hope in a shambling world.
It has been nearly one year since the zombie hordes claimed the world. As the plague eats away at its victims’ bodies, a new threat rises in Deadland.
"100 Days in Deadland is a stunning exploration of the human spirit: survival and greed, good and evil...a microcosm of today’s society wrapped up in a dystopian novel. Rachel Aukes has written a modern take on a classic. I for one, cannot wait for her next book." ~ Suspense Magazine

"100 Days in Deadland pulls off the trifecta: a truly frightening zombie story, a fascinating study of humanity at their best and worst, complete with characters we genuinely care about." ~Anniki's Bookcase
"I don't read many women authors who can write horror as well as Stephen King and Clive Barker and Rachel Aukes does!" ~ My Seryniti
"A near-perfect 5-star review. Of all my reads, I'm not sure one has ever taken me on quite the journey as this one has." ~ Ethan Gregory, One Guy's Guide to Good Reads
"Rachel Aukes has raised the bar for the zombie genre by writing something with some serious literary substance." ~ AstraDaemon of The Zombiephiles
Have you started this series yet? It is a must read for you apocalypse loving fans out there! ... Rachel Aukes did things in Deadland's Harvest I'd never seen in zombie apocalyptic books... This book was amazing. It was bigger, badder, and way more than I expected. ~ Liz, Fictional Candy
I love Aukes’ intense plotting, her narrative verve, and certainly how well she engages us in these characters. Cash and Clutch seem real and possible. You only hope the world they inherited isn’t. ~ Andrew Andrews, True Review
