Description

Hordes of zombies threaten to wipe out all of mankind in this first action-horror novel set in the exciting (yet horrifying) world of the Zombicide games.

The zombie apocalypse has driven humanity up into the Adirondacks. Enter Westlake, hardened career criminal on the path of “the Villa”, a legendary mafia hideout where he can escape the devastation. When he’s ambushed by the undead, an old FBI “friend” and his squad of survivors rescue him… and then force him to reveal his secrets. The jokey myth of the Villa suddenly becomes salvation for the settlements scattered around Saranc Lake. Reluctantly, Westlake is saddled with an oddball team to navigate mine fields, trip wires, and flesh-eating zombies at every turn to find their safe haven. Shame there’s already someone living there…

Last Resort is a fantastic, page-turning, action-filled, wise-cracking story! Renowned thief, Westlake, teams up with a band of survivors to find the mysterious 'Villa' rumoured to be in the mountains and the perfect place to survive a zombie apocalypse. Even if you're not familiar with the game, you can still enjoy this book, very much, especially if you love zombie fiction. Threats abound from all directions, not just from the zombies and Westlake and his motley crew are the perfect mix of characters to follow along in their story. I highly recommend this Zombicide book by Josh Reynolds and feel it is destined to be a sure-fire hit!

Josh Reynolds and Aconyte books has yet to disappoint, and Zombicide Last Resort is no different. A perfect blend of chaotic thriller and zombie filled humor brought to you from the author of Wrath of N'Kai. Last Resort brings you along on an over the top adventure as a group of survivors look for a rumored safe haven. Along the ride you meet Walkers, Runners, Fatties, and a variety of other elements from the board game that makes you feel as if you're playing along as you read. The multitude of situations the survivors find themselves in will sometimes feel eerily familiar if you are a veteran of Zombicide the board game. As fun as it is to read about our group of heroes facing off against different types of zombies (and a couple of other surprises from the game), where Last Resort really shines is the danger they face that aren't zombies. Between finding supplies, wildlife, other camps, and old acquaintances, Westlake and his friends will have their hands full. If you're a fan of zombie shows like Z Nation, video games like Left 4 Dead, even if you've never played the Zombicide board game, you'll find something to enjoy in this fun romp through the zombie apocalypse.
