Reign of the Dead is an apocalyptic tale of survival and heroics in
the face of mankind's greatest challenge.
I could feel the passion in Len Barnhart's Reign of the Dead. I
encourage everyone to go find it." -Max Brooks, World War Z
"Reign of the Dead is not just another mindless gore-fest. Barnhart
does deliver plenty of graphic and gruesome violence, but these
choice scenes are well-placed throughout and are tinged with an
underlying thread of conspiracy and madness. The tightly woven
storyline pits the survivors in a desperate struggle against an
infestation of undead adversaries, as well as their fellow man." -
Dark Realms Magazine.
"A solid character driven story with gut wrenching, 3-D zombies. A
quick read that will have readers salivating for more...a true page
turner." -Leonard Lies aka Machete Zombie, Dawn of the Dead....Buy
