TOMES OF THE DEAD:
The Viking Dead
They come to raid, pillage ... and devour!
They were feared throughout Europe as an unstoppable, bloodthirsty and merciless pestilence. But now the Vikings may have met their match – their own undead!
In the latest stand-alone tale from the acclaimed Tomes of the Dead series, it's Vikings versus zombies as Bjólf and his crew encounter terrifying draugr – undead berserkers who feed on the flesh of their kin. Bjólf has no choice but to overcome his own fear, fight his way through forests infested with axe-wielding zombies – and more terrible things – and reach a dark castle where he hopes to find the secret behind this accursed plague.
A blisteringly thrilling debut from the winner of the 2001 Keats-Shelley Memorial Prize, Venables has crafted a heart-stopping tale full of unexpected twists, brutal Dark Age violence, and chilling zombie action!
