Dead New World by Ryan Hill


I received this book free from Curiosity Quills Press in exchange for an honest review.

I LOVED reading this book. It’s pretty much a given that any book dealing with zombies is one that I’m going to love. And I really, really liked this book.


The book starts out with Holt and Ambrose, who are best friends, when they are going out on their first mission. Everyone that was in the group ends up dead except for Holt and Ambrose. A horde of zombies had attacked but they were being led by The Reverend. He was a man that many people had rumored about but no one really knew if he existed or not.

Holt has a leg blown off by a mine and Ambrose is bitten by one of the zombies. A prosthetic leg is made for Holt. Holt is in and out of consciousness for four days before finally waking up. His first concern is finding out Ambrose is. The nurse, Nancy, let’s Holt know that Ambrose is still alive but a doctor from DC was flying in to examine him. Ambrose still hadn’t turned into a zombie. There were rumors of people who were half human and half zombie, those that survived the zombie bite.

Holt wants to see Ambrose and Nancy takes him down to the cells. Holt pleads with the doctor not to destroy Ambrose. What he didn’t know, was that the Colony was real and that people like Ambrose were allowed to live there and they weren’t discriminated against. Ambrose is treated differently. He becomes a LT and has a squad under his command and his Sgt is Holt. Most won’t listen to Ambrose because he’s not like them anymore and they won’t listen to Holt because he’s a sympathizer. But let’s just say that those who won’t listen get what’s coming to them in the end. 🙂

Fort Bragg falls to the dead meat as the zombies are called.  There are still survivors and standing when Ambrose, Holt and a couple others are ordered to go check on another station. Things go from bad to worse for the team on the way there. Only Ambrose, Holt and Baker make it out of the helicopter being shot out of the sky.


There is so much stuff going on in this book. I love it! I really hope there is a sequel to this book so we can find out the few loose ends in the book. If you read it, I’m sure you’ll feel the same way!
