I don't know about you, but when someone says 'post-apocalyptic zombie novel' I would normally think of THE WALKING DEAD, or any novel, film or TV series with an action-packed fight for survival against the flesh-eating living dead. But for those of you that have read Alden Bell's THE REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS you will know that a post-apocalyptic zombie novel can be a thing of beauty, infused with horror and hope and a struggle for survival that borders on heartbreaking.
Luckily for us (and you!), Alden has written a prequel to THE REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS, EXIT KINGDOM, that is every bit as amazing as his first and we are very excited to be publishing it this month.

AT THE END OF DAYS, WHAT PRICE SALVATION?
In a world where the undead outnumber the living, Moses Todd roams the post-apocalyptic plains of America. His reprobate brother, Abraham - his only companion - has known little else. Together, they journey because they have to; because they have nowhere to go, and no one to answer to other than themselves.
Travelling the bloody wastelands of this ruined world, Moses is looking for a kernel of truth, and a reason to keep going. And a chance encounter presents him with the Vestal Amata, a beguiling and mysterious woman who may hold the key to salvation.
But he is not the only one seeking the Vestal. For the Vestal has a gift: a gift that might help save what is left of humanity. And it may take everything he has to free her from the clutches of those who most desire her.
