Come get your Zombie fix with Last Stand on Zombie Island military scifi horror ebook
New zombie novel, Last Stand on Zombie Island by Christopher Eger released
Feeling a little green around the gills since the Walking Dead is on hiatus? Love the thought of some shambling, distended, and grotesque hordes making their way to your door? Are you ready to displace to a more defensible location? Well spend your time looking at this.
Disease-K has decimated the world leaving its victims shambling homicidal maniacs. And nestled along the warm Gulf waters sits Gulf Shores…the last outpost of civilization. With looters and thieves preying on the shocked survivors, it’s up to the retirees and bank tellers, phone repairmen, and charterboat captains to put the town back together.
There, in the sands and marshes of the Gulf of Mexico, the citizens of Gulf Shores along with scattered military units, a downed Air Force pilot, and a lone Coast Guard cutter form the last line of defense against the amassing horde of the infected marching its way toward the sea destroying what is left of humanity along the way.
The work, by experienced military historian Christopher Eger, is the product of years of research and in-depth study, making it possibly one of the best-researched tales of a dystopian pandemic future. Last Stand on Zombie Island is written from the perspective of several survivors of the upcoming zombie apocalypse on the geographically isolated man-made island on Gulf Shores Alabama. Billy Harris, the leather skinned recently divorced charter boat captain and single dad is, sarcastic and irreverent and thrust into an unlikely hero role. Captain Eric Stone is a battle-scarred National Guard officer forced to lead his dwindling MP Company to save his hometown. Major Sarah Reynolds, an icy cold Air Force pilot, had survived her crash landing on Gulf Shores but is just looking to get off the island for her own list of reasons. Bank teller Mackenzie Tillman is trapped at her job in the most literal meaning and has nowhere to go. Local pot merchant and seller of other people's stuff, Spud, is just trying to figure out how he can take advantage of the situation. Coast Guard patrol boat skipper Orlando Jarvis, fresh from the Academy, is struggling to make the right decisions to keep his ship safe.
The book follows our survivors’ journey as they survive the initial outbreak.
This is only the genesis of the events to occur. The survivors soon realizes that are capable of anything for survival and for the protection of those they care for; even if that means delivering indescribable acts of violence. With the population of almost 2,000 shell shocked and humbled survivors huddled on an isolated Gulf Coast island, they are forced to work together or fall apart. As summer gives way to the fall and the cold winds blow off the sea, Gulf Shores draws the line and prepares to make the…last stand on Zombie Island.
The first reviews are in and they look good:
“Last Stand on Zombie Island was good to the last drop…of flesh and blood, that is! Very captivating and entertaining throughout with interesting, relatable characters that will keep you intrigued. The zombies themselves are more amped, determined that your standard shambling zombie, and will have you on the edge of your seat. Two thumbs up, 5 stars, a real page-turner! I hope there is a sequel coming!”
“Last Stand on Zombie Island was one of those books that once I started it was hard to put down. Although it started a little slow, once it heated up, it stayed that way until the end. The writer did a great job with vivid descriptions and writing that allowed the reader to feel exactly what the characters were feeling. Since The Walking Dead in on break, I needed a good zombie book to fill the void. This certainly did with believable characters and I even tensed up while reading some of the scenes. Looking forward to the next book! “
“The book is fairly technically well written, which allows the reader to suspend skepticism and enter the scenario uncritically. Although it is obviously pure fantasy, for the purposes of the story, the script holds together with tangible and credible logic. To some extent, at least the reader can wonder what it would be like to be confronted by hordes of undead attacking and fouling everything and everybody insight, on a godforsaken island from which there seems to be no escape.
The novel has potential to be worked up into a psychological thriller of great depth. I hope there is a sequel so readers find out what happened to the characters. Thanks for a fast paced, action packed read! “

Score: 4.50 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick
Last Stand on Zombie Island is a novel that is terrifying in its authenticity, and still heartwarming in its belief of the resiliency of human nature. It approaches the terror of a zombie outbreak from a logical standpoint, and in using logic, shows how the human race could survive such a disaster. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel, although some scenes are quite graphic. Then again, what can one expect when reading about zombies? This is one of those rare novels that people from all genres can find interesting. This is a thoroughly worthwhile, totally engrossing novel.
The world is at war. When a virus mutates from animals to infect humans and turn them to zombies, the virus spreads like wildfire and the world as we know it comes to a very rapid end. At least that’s the story in this novel. Yet this novel is not about the zombies, it is instead about the survivors and how humanity is changed after such a catastrophic occurrence. Services are gone, law and order gone as well, and martial law is in full effect. Families shattered, lives destroyed, and yet, through it all, a ragtag group of survivors (some military, some civilian, all bewildered) will fight with everything they have left to preserve the human race and stop the zombies from destroying the last vestiges of humanity. Some will emerge as better and stronger citizens in spite of the carnage. Some will emerge on the bottom of the societal chain, with their gangster and thug attitudes. Some will not emerge at all. Take a ride with the survivors and see where the carnage leads.
