Synopsis: The world ended on a Thursday.
In one day, the world succumbed to a pestilence that decimated the living. In its place rose a new species: vicious, gruesome, wandering zombies with an insatiable hunger for the living. There is no government, no shelter.
Still in her twenties, Cash has watched her friends die, only to walk again. An office worker with few survival skills, she joins up with Clutch, a grizzled Army veteran with PTSD. Together, they flee the city and struggle through the nine circles of hell, with nothing but Clutch's military experience and Cash's determination to kill scrum. As they fight to survive in the zombie inferno, they quickly discover that nowhere is safe from the undead...or the living.
This is the beginning after the end.
Review: ‘100 Days in Deadland’ has a unique perspective on the ever-popular zombie apocalypse story. The author has loosely based Cash’s journey in this new world on Dante’s Inferno. As Cash works her way through the levels of hell, she will be tested in a trial by fire. ‘100 Days in Deadland’ is full of action, but still has very well-developed characters. I really liked Cash because we see her evolve from an ordinary office worker to a physically and emotionally strong leading woman. As she spends more time with Clutch, her mentor and guide in this new world, she proves to herself she can handle almost anything which comes her way. Her journey and her struggle especially against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse is entertaining. I couldn’t put ‘100 Days in Deadland’ down until I was done! I hope we find out soon what is in store next for Cash!
