New Release: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse

dawn-of-the-apocalypse-6X9

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the world-wide release of Lee Murray’s middle grade novel, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse. “We pride ourselves in the success and range of our middle grade / young teen novels,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and Murray’s novel enhances our  catalogue. We now have a New Zealand contribution, and one that adds a unique take on horror tropes – and yet original from many angles.”

Chaos’ latest game is positively epic. Just look at the trailer: the hero Bastion Axestone striding through the city streets, fireballs exploding around him and zombies staggering in his wake. Seb can’t wait to play it. He downloads the works. Explosive effects, 3D upgrade, heavy metal soundtrack and a subliminal quotient—whatever that is.

But the next day, Seb and his friends wake up to an apocalypse. Their teachers are missing in action, coach doesn’t come to practice, and Seb’s dad spends all day in his pyjamas. Even worse, not only has Mum not been in to work, she hasn’t bothered to brush her teeth. It’s beginning to look as if every grown-up in Bridgetown—possibly the entire world—has been zombified. They’re obsessed with their personal electronic devices and it’s all Seb’s fault because he’s the one who downloaded the game in the first place. Now, he has to fix it. But how? It’s not as if he can un-download the game. Along with his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, Seb has to figure out how to reverse the effect of the computer virus. But in the meantime, the zombies need feeding, Seb’s little sister, Ava, needs minding, and someone has to walk the dog…

Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse is released world-wide and is available from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online (print and ebook).

Excellent Review of Ian C Douglas’ The Infinity Trap

Taken from author and bloggist Lee Murray’s blog site:

http://www.leemurray.info/infinity-trap/

The Infinity Trap is what happens when Ender’s Game, Harry Potter, Star Wars and Grange Hill are popped in a Tardis and shaken about a bit to create a wonderful, gripping could-be-the-end-of-the-world tale for those reluctant boy readers. With strange languages, bots and prophecies, The Infinity Trap is the story of Zeke, who has cheated on his entrance exam in order to get himself to Chasm, an elite off-world school for psychics, where he hopes to pick up the trace of his missing father. But something more sinister than the usual school bullying is going on at Chasm and when the school’s youngest student, Pin-mei, is kidnapped, Zeke must abandon his quest and set out to find the creature who took his friend. After all, the future of the universe could be at stake. But in a school where everyone has a psychic skill, it’s a tall order. Terrific dialogue, some wonderful technology and edge-of-your-seat plotting, makes The Infinity Trap the perfect book to drag middle graders and younger teens away from the screen and into reading.
