The Dead Trilogy: Book One

The year is 1726 and Harvey, a young Fishmonger’s son, is awaiting his death upon the gallows. His fortune changes when he is offered a last-minute deal that could win him a full pardon and a new life in England. Unfortunately, not everything is as it seems. Harvey is about to get a harsh lesson in life aboard a ship surrounded by convicts. Worse yet is the cargo they carry – the corpses of 316 English soldiers. When a powerful blood curse starts to bring the dead to life, the crew of ‘The Charon’ will wish they had stayed to face the executioner.

This is a delightful tale of horror on the high seas with a beautifully descriptive narrative. – Crystal Kirkham

I put off reading this because the only time I had to do so was in bed, in the dark… I am now going to dream of zombies.

This one is gross and wonderful. Lots of gore and chomps. You know you’re in for a treat when there are corpses on a boat and a magical amulet-like stone bringing the dead to life. 

Quick read! – Heather Ann Lynn
