ZOMBIES: REVIEW - 'DNA: CODE FLESH' = Heavy handed zombie and political horror


Alan Dale's 'Dead Nation's Army: Book 1 - Code Flesh' reads like a global revolutionary manifesto. It's a solid zombie apocalypse story, but also makes a strong statement about the current ruling status quo and how a zombie apocalypse would affect both the 1%ers and the 99%.

There is a poetry to Dale's style that accentuates the story, in my opinion. His prose is almost like free-verse, and there's an efficiency to his words that borders on fanatical. He's like a beatnik George Romero who listened to Alex Jones while writing, all the while finding the right words for the book to shout from a megaphone for the world to hear. Both share the belief that their words will not be denied.

Like Jones, Dale is also outspoken and confident. Perhaps brash. But its this energy that fuels his books. His writing comes from a deep love and faith for not only his story, but its message. Global political forces during the Zpoc are similar topics I've explored in my zombie horror titles "Down the Road". That's why I find a lot of truth his story, as the theme touched a real hot button for me (read: The real terror of a zombie apocalypse would not be the zeds, but how the global elite will treat the masses during a zombie apocalypse.)

Alan Dale's 'Dead Nation's Army: Book 1 - Code Flesh' is a revolutionary manifesto shrouded in a quality and bloody zombie horror story. This book is approved.

You can pick it up today via paperback or kindle here.
