ARISEN, Book Nine

Alpha team is back – in the most anticipated and devastating chapter yet in the ARISEN saga.

Readers call the ARISEN series:   “A hundred mile an hour thrill ride” … “breathtaking - absolutely fantastic action” … “the most exhilarating military zombie series there is” … “Beyond good - pure action, beginning to end” … “Perhaps the best in this genre on the planet… and I've read most. You would be hard pressed to find a more thrilling ride” … “Amazing and heart-wrenching at the same time – the characters feel like family” … “the fastest, scariest, most spine-tingling, adrenaline-pumping roller-coaster ride of a lifetime” … “Truly incredible storyweaving” … “Hands down THE BEST zombie series, nay, dare I say BOOK series, I have ever read” … “You feel like the explosions are going off beside your head” … “you never know what the hell is coming at you next” … “Every time I think it cannot get any better, BAM!” … “the excitement and intricacy blew my mind” … “Wild ride. Buy your ticket.

This is the endgame – and it’s not going well.

The battle to keep the undead tide from the walls of London is lost. Africa is a deadly hall of mirrors, leaving Alpha team riven with dissension and doubt. And the one man who might save the world is crashing to Earth half a world away. Only our greatest warriors can walk through this fire.

Betrayal. Chaos. Courage.

Hope Never Dies.

Alpha team returns in

Update: So, after hanging around in the Top 150 for its first sales week (which is great!), it looks like Cataclysm has probably peaked at #129 on Amazon overall – handily a new record. (Though still not that top-100 ranking – which in a system governed by a power-law distribution, is actually much farther away than it looks…)
Plus it garnered #1 rankings on the Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction, Military Science Fiction, and War Fiction genre bestseller lists. Not too shabby! As always, my very deep thanks to all the faithful readers who made it happen.

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.
