ARISEN, Omnibus Two

It’s the second ARISEN omnibus edition – 1,297 pages of madness, mayhem, and heart-stopping heroism. Yay! And another outstanding box-set cover design by Glynn. (There won't be a print edition of this one, sorry, all you paper readers. It actually turns out to be too much mayhem to fit in a physical object…)

With over 200,000 copies sold, ARISEN is said by readers to be:
Wall to wall adrenaline - edge of your seat unputdownable until the very last page” … “staggeringly good - the most consistently excellent franchise in zombie literature” … “the best post-apocalyptic military fiction there is” … “one badass unstoppable bullet train ride” … “edge of the seat, nail biting, page turning mayhem” … “had me holding my breath more times than I could count” … “THE BOSS of the zombie apocalypse genre” … “The pace and action are breathtaking” … “the most amazing and intense battle scenes you've ever experienced” … “rolls along like an out of control freight train” … “left me shaking at the last page” … “insane propulsive storytelling” … “They grab you on the first page and kick your ass through the entire series…

BOOK FOUR – MAXIMUM VIOLENCE
One Troop Royal Marine Commandos fights a 360-degree battle for survival, while racing to rescue survivors from a relentless siege – all before Hellfire missile strikes and carpet bombing kill anyone left alive… The crew of the Kennedy risks a catastrophic reactor meltdown to get out of the path of a ten-mile-wide tide of the dead… Master Gunnery Sergeant Fick and his spec-ops Marines battle to take and hold an airfield on a remote island – but learn that it is a place with a terrible history and dangerous secrets… On Lake Michigan, Alpha team races toward extraction – but first must fight their most harrowing battle yet, this time against the living, who are both more treacherous and a hell of a lot better armed than the dead…

BOOK FIVE – EXODUS
The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded – and soon her five-acre flight deck is the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle… Surrounded, cut off, and left for dead, Wesley's band of sailors and survivors race ahead of the swarm, as air strikes and shore bombardment threaten to vaporize them all… The operators of Alpha team and MARSOC fly into two converging storms of unspeakable violence, and must parachute in and reinforce the Alamo – the hopeless and doomed defense of the carrier. A thousand things must go right for them to have a prayer of survival. But it's the job of the operators to succeed even when a million things go wrong…

BOOK SIX – THE HORIZON
Mission complete, Alpha team enjoys their first chance to breathe and tend to their humanity – but the darkness leaves them alone with their demons… The JFK steams for Africa, despite rumors of lone dead still wandering below decks – where one Zulu can kill you just as dead as ten million… Amarie and the Tunnelers are resettled in a chillingly post-Apocalyptic London, where mini-outbreaks are hushed up as history's largest fixed fortification goes up in preparation for humanity's last stand… Lieutenant Jameson and his battered Royal Marines launch by air to retrieve a rare biomedical device buried at the center of a city of millions (all dead) – but when the walls come down and the horde descends, Jameson may be the last man standing…


Ride the human spirit to its utmost limit in the most explosive and thrilling military ZA series on Earth.

about
close photo of Michael Stephen Fuchs

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
