The Reapers Are The Angels

For twenty-five years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded
against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to
herself and keeping her demons inside her heart. She can't remember a time
before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the
younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her on a personal
journey toward redemption. Moving back and forth between the insulated remnants of society and the brutal frontier beyond, Temple must decide where ultimately to make a home and find the salvation she seeks.

August 2nd will see the release of a new book by author, Alden Bell. The Reapers Are The Angels gives me visions of The Road with zombies. I could be wrong, and I'll let you know for sure after I read it. Or, you can be your own judge by pre-ordering the book from publisher, Henry Holt and Company. Who, by the way, has been kind enough to offer several readers a chance to win the book!

For your chance to win a copy, email your name and address to We will select winners some time at the end of August.
