An Ancient City Holds an Ancient Secret!
The year 40AD is drawing to a close, the last gasp of Caligula’s demented reign. Rome dominates the world, but something is festering at the heart of the Empire. Slaves are disappearing, the bodies of the dead are being stolen and mysterious shipments arrive from Egypt in the dead of night.
Barbarian gladiator Boda was brought to Rome in chains as a prisoner of war. She hates her captors and their decadent city, but when she uncovers a plot to breach the barrier between life and death, she realises that she may be the Empire’s only hope.
THE BEST OF TOMES OF THE DEAD, VOLUME 1
Released 11 November 2010
THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE STARTS HERE...
The masters of flesh-munchingly, gut-wrenchingly, eyeball-poppingly great zombie fiction bring you three of the best books from the first years of the critically-acclaimed Tomes of the Dead line.
The Words of their Roaring
In a London overrun by the zombie hordes, former thief Gabe O’Connell’s loyalty to his employer Harry Flowers is challenged when a routine job goes south and he uncovers the full extent of the gang lord’s plans for the city.
“The world of horror fiction may have just found its equivalent to Tarantino.” - Whispers of Wickedness Magazine
John Doe has been dead for ten years. If the price is right, he’ll kill for you, steal for you, or save your life for you. There’s no mystery you can’t hire him to solve... except for the secret behind his own existence. A secret that could end all life on Earth.
“Right from the bullet-soaked opening up until the downbeat ending, Ewing keeps things moving so fast that I literally couldn’t stop and get off.” - Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review
Beautiful and deadly, the gladiator Boda is brought to Rome in the reign of Caligula, where she uncovers a plot to breach the barrier between life and death. For all that she hates her captors and their decadent city, she may be the empire’s only hope.
“It’s the sort of book for which the term ‘romp’ or the phrase ‘rip-roaring adventure’ was coined.” - Nostalgia for Infinity

It swept across the world like the end of times, a killer virus that spared only those with one rare blood type. Now, in the ruined cities, cannibalism and casual murder are the rule, and religious fervour vies with cynical self-interest. The few who hope to make a difference, to rise above the monsters, must sometimes become monsters themselves.
THE CULLED: Even before the plague, he was a weapon, cold and brutal; and the Cull took away his one shot at regaining his humanity. Now, deep in the squalor of London, he receives a signal, and a flicker of hope. But the source of the signal is half a world away, and he must fight gangs, collectors, and the powerful Church of the New Dawn to get there.
KILL OR CURE: Spending five years locked in a secret bunker, with only the dead for company, is enough to drive anyone mad. But Jasmine’s crazier than most; she survived the Cull, but the Cure’s worse, leaving her with a Voice that whispers at her to do terrible things. Rescued by the rulers of the New Caribbean, she is sent to investigate a second plague.
DEATH GOT NO MERCY: Cade didn’t exactly care about people, but if someone he almost cared about was in trouble, he’d help if he could. If that meant taking on religious maniacs, suited cannibals and hippies who dealt out free love and fast death... well, I’m kind of runnin’ my mouth here. This ain’t a peaceful story, and Cade... Cade wasn’t a peaceful man.

Jasmine has spent five years underground, locked in a secret government bunker. Outside, the world has gone to hell, a mysterious virus killing all but 1 in 20 of the world's population.
It's enough to drive anyone mad - but Jasmine's crazier than most. The cure she was working on had an unexpected side effect, psychotic symptoms which only powerful drugs can suppress. Jasmine's rescuers, the pirate rulers of the New Caribbean, don't care.
They need Jasmine's help to discover what it is that has turned the inhabitants of Cuba into rabid killers. Jasmine's quest to find a cure for this new plague, as well as for her own madness, draws her across the fractured continent of America and into the darkest recesses of her own past.
