Atlas’s Western zombie saga invigorates a familiar genre. Blake Prose, an idealistic, philosophizing Texan, must make it through an America ravaged by the living dead to reach his family in Portland, Ore. When he runs into a government scientist and the young girl she is bent on getting to safety, he takes a deep dive into zombie country. There is one safe haven in the midst of zombie-infested Oregon: Bentlam, a walled city that retains its pre-apocalypse beauty. But a dark secret looms over Bentlam, and Blake must forge risky alliances and battle with the unsavory denizens of the underworld to uncover it. Awash with unflinching detail and a heady mix of humor and suspense, Atlas’s work is searing. He seamlessly blends an energetic Wild West atmosphere with the looming horror of the living dead, and his characters are lively and well-rounded. Horror fans will enjoy this romp through zombie country. (BookLife)
