It’s not often that you find a zombie book, movie, our show in which the characters immediately know and accept they are dealing with zombies. One would think that would make it easier on the characters but if you’re expecting that, you don’t know Iain Rob Wright – Amazon Review
Zombie: A Horror Novel
(The Cursed Manuscripts)
On December 21, 2012, according to the Mayan Calendar, the world was supposed to end. It didn’t. But on that day, 113 mysterious manuscripts were discovered around the world, each one written in blood by an unknown author. After several dozen unexplained deaths befell the finders of said manuscripts, a decision was made to lock them up for good in a secret vault beneath the Vatican. It is said that anyone who reads the stories will die, and as such they are now referred to as ‘The Cursed Manuscripts.’
In December 2020, new manuscripts started turning up around the world. ‘Zombie’ was one of them.
MANUSCRIPT ID: 12/20-02 (ZOMBIE).
Manuscript 12.20-02, discovered June 2021 in Stoke, United Kingdom, by teenager, Kyle Smith, who found it abandoned on the seat of a bus. Kyle Smith was hit by a car and killed two days later. The following text was found written on an unsent text message found on his phone. There was no recipient.
After a terrible night of arguing, young married couple, Laura and Danny, drive home with their daughter, Rose, asleep in the back seat. Danny is drunk, and shouldn’t be driving at all, but Laura keeps quiet about it. She always keeps quiet. There’s no point making her husband angry. That would only make things worse.
But things are about to get much much worse.
What happens next will put Laura’s strained marriage to the ultimate test as she and Danny find themselves broken down in the middle of the night on a lonely road. Their only hope for survival is to stay inside the car, because there are cannibalistic maniacs outside trying eat them.
If you love dread-filled stories full of scares and new twists on old genres, then ‘Zombie’ is the book you’ve been waiting for. New for 2022. Grab your copy now.
