Name: Zombiestan
Rating: 4.3 stars over 51  reviews
Price: 0.99
Description: It began with stories of undead Taliban rampaging through Afghan villages, and faster than anyone could have anticipated; the darkness spreads through the world.

In a world laid waste by this new terror, four unlikely companions have been thrown together- a seventeen year old boy dealing with the loss of his family, a US Navy SEAL trying to get back home, an aging, lonely writer with nobody to live for, and a young girl trying to keep her three year old brother safe.

When they discover that the smallest amongst them holds the key to removing the scourge that threatens to destroy their world, they begin an epic journey to a rumoured safe zone high in the Himalayas. A journey that will pit them against their own worst fears and the most terrible dangers- both human and undead.

Reviews: "Mainak Dhar kept me on the edge of my seat with this book. I'm not usually a big zombie fan, but this book was awesome enough to turn me into a big zombie nut! I can't wait to get my hands on his next book! I highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes adventure."
