Steven Ramirez releases the sequel to his zombie thriller, delving deeper into the plague ravaging the town of Tres Marias.
Antihero Dave Pulaski returns as a man struggling to protect his wife, Holly, while attempting to stop the dark forces intent on furthering their sinister agenda.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — September 15, 2014 — In Dead Is All You Get (Book Two of THE DEAD SERIES), antihero Dave Pulaski and a small group of survivors find themselves deep in a Northern California forest, pursued by a shrieking, hellish horde that threatens to devour them. Then a miracle—Black Dragon Security helicopters appear overhead as more armed soldiers on ATVs ride over a ridge to destroy the attackers and rescue the group.
But the horror isn’t over. Not even close. Although Black Dragon has managed to make the town of Tres Marias safer, a new, more sinister reality emerges. The virus is mutating—and someone is to blame. Now Dave has a choice. He and his wife, Holly, can leave the safe zone and fend for themselves. Or they can join Black Dragon and try to discover the truth about what really happened. All Dave wants is to protect those closest to him—especially Holly. He must decide, and time is short. The people responsible for the outbreak may be planning something worse—something whose dark consequences will reach far beyond Tres Marias and will push Dave beyond the limits of faith and reason.
Dead Is All You Get combines the best elements of horror, dark fantasy and sci-fi, taking the reader on a relentless, tortured journey of survival and revenge that tests the strength of a man’s character and delves into the role faith plays when one is confronted by the worst kind of evil—the evil in humans.
“This story is not just about horror. It explores the need for Faith when confronted by events that test our ability to survive.” –Steven Ramirez
