DNA: Code Flesh (Part I) Dead Nation’s Army by Alan Dale










Product Description

For years the planet was run by the New World Order, but not to its liking. After mandating the use of death row and life sentenced inmatesas subjects in scientific experiments, the NWO has decided to tighten its grip through its greatest political decision. However, the experiment backfires, leaving the world in the middle of a war stuck in the middle of another war.

Two of those combatants, Bridjett and Shad Alexi, siblings, torn apart by different allegiances both work to find the common ground amidst a war that will soon grow beyond the parameters anyone would have ever imagined.

Having contaminated the "cocktail" used to keep prisoner test subjects, or SCRATS, alive, the NWO hoped to create an army purely under its command. Little did they know the "cocktail" would turn thousands of SCRATS into zombies and lead to a worldwide epidemic of undead walking the earth.

Led by Bridjett and the DNA roving army, the survivors, mostly trapped in various gated communities around the world, await the replenishment of food, medications, and supplies in order to survive the constant threat of zombies on the other side of the wall.

What the DNA didn't expect was the NWO's need to feed the new undead army to keep them compliant. Only what they don't know is Shad Alexi's plans to give the people a fighting chance, even if it involves going against the NWO he fights for. Now, a war for the lives of the remaining humans on earth is waged as government and survivors, battle for the right to claim control for the lives of the people.

The Dead Nations' Army trilogy begins with Code Flesh which examines the origins of the scrat infection and its ultimate growth. It also discusses the many issues that face the world today, such as how the have nots sustain themselves in a world gone dead, the different groups that ultimately arise from the apocalypse, and of course, how to destroy the NWO.

Ladies and gentlemen....the reason why the teaser novella for DNA: Code Flesh will go on sale again on Fathers Day and again go over 4th of July is simple. It is because, yes the book is hoping for sales and it deals with zombies. But, it is also more and meant to represent more. I want to honor parents who do the best jobs they can and raise children who will not be conformists who worry about how they feel and actually get things done. I want to also honor our past, a time when we stood for honor and hard work. Those days are leaving us and we, along with many others in our world, will soon pay the price. Our governments our failing us, the elite are hording all the $, and resources are becoming way more expensive then they should be to line the pockets of rich kids.
The "Dead Nations' Army" series is not just about me writing a book to sell and become a FT author. It is about performing my civil duty to educate. Disagree? Sure. Agree? Great. But either way, pay heed, and use whatever information you choose. On July 5, if the full novel for DNA Book 1: Code Flesh does not have a publisher we will self publish. Until then, please support, and read, and spread the word. The army is here...the Order is here...long live the zombies....for we are them and they are us.


Excerpt from Amazon.

My Review:

This story is my first zombie read. I have seen movies and TV shows, but had not read a zombie story to date. While I do enjoy the zombie flicks…they are usually all the same, right?

This is different. It’s a fresh look on zombies. I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed story. The characters are well developed and as you read you really start to connect with the characters.

The story is well thought out. It is definitely thought provoking.  You can look at the current political and economical state of the US and as you read, you can envision how this could actually happen.   It is fast-paced and the action is awesome.

This story takes you for a thrill ride..

I am anxiously awaiting the next segment.  Whether you love zombies or not…this is a definite read!!!!

Is it Trekkie or Trekker?

So..here is where the randomness comes in...In between my working..reading..writing...and reviewing..I had this thought. I have been watching some Star Trek TNG on Netflix while I work on stuff. And I had this thought.

Has it been officially established what Star Trek fanatics are to be called? Is is Trekkie or Trekker? Anyone? Anyone?

THIRTEEN

Thirteen is my favorite number....yes...I just said that out loud. Friday the 13th is practically a holiday for me. I love when there is a Friday the 13th. I know about it months in advance. I even used to use vacation days (back when I had those LOL) and take the day off. Usually I would either watch a scary movie or go see a scary movie. This year..a little different..I worked.

And I survived! No bad luck or anything!

I also find that Friday the 13th usually gets my creative juices flowing for a horror/scary story. Let's hope I can organize my thoughts into something good. :)

And ironically, I just noticed I have 13 followers. I told you...13 is the best!


So, even though Jason Vorhees is not my top horror villain..I leave you with this image...



I should say that Michael Meyers is my FAVORITE...but Jason is OK...LOL..how about you guys? Any great or not so great Friday the 13th stories? Favorite villain?

The Spirit Box by JH Glaze

A Paranormal Horror/Thriller that delivers. It's a unique tale that reshapes and redefines the Modern Paranormal Genre. When Walt Turner's mother died, he inherited her apartment and the antique shop below. After losing his job due to the treachery of a co-worker, The Spirit Box calls to him from the darkness of the shop with an offer of revenge. Lured by the promise of ultimate power and eternal life by the prisoner inside the box, Walt agrees to help it gather the final spirits it requires to return to human form. John Hazard is investigating a series of murders and missing persons in this otherwise quiet town. His perceptions of reality are about to be altered in a life changing confrontation that will force him beyond the boundaries of darkness and ancient evil. It is a spiraling descent into madness, where you may have everything you desire, if only you are willing to sacrifice all that you believe. When you look into The Spirit Box, be prepared to have more than your breath taken away.    Description from Amazon.
                                                  

My Review:

I LOVE this book!! LOVE!!!  It is original and the characters and story are both well developed. I felt I was right there in the action of the story. This book did suck me in, much like a Spirit Box!!!
I don’t want to give too much away. This is a must read! Especially for you Koontz and King fans…it does not disappoint!
The story is about Walt Turner. An average Joe kind of guy...misunderstood and a little down on his luck. He inherited his mother’s apartment above an antique shop.  This is where the Spirit Box resides.  After an unfortunate incident at his job, Walt begins to “hear” the box and with promises of anything Walt desires, Walt serves the box’s commands.
While this is happening, John Hazard is investigating disappearances and murders in this small sleepy town. He is about to embark on journey into paranormal and what is real and what is not and what else is out there in the world.
The story is realistic. I can relate to both Walt and John and I believe most people can relate to them as well. I love the style of writing as well. It is true to life.
If I could give more than 5 stars...I would. It is that good.
The Spirit Box is one of my top books and truly a great horror/scary book I have read in a LONG time. I have the sequel NorthWest ready to read!
