TL1-D500The Last is Book 1 in the Zombie Ocean series, and a zombie apocalypse story with a twist: only one man survives.

The Last man alive vs. 7 billion zombies.

When the zombie apocalypse hits America, not a soul is left alive.

Except Amo. He’s a comic book artist. He’s a video game world builder. He’s just a regular guy living in New York city, with only his wits, creativity and basic decency to guide him.

He’s alone against 7 billion zombies.

Will he survive?

‘Robinson Crusoe’ meets the zombie apocalypse like you’ve never seen it before, packed with adventure, gore and a mind-blowing twist.

A tale of post-apocalyptic, zombie survival action that kicks off the Zombie Ocean series, continued in Book 2, The Lost. Burning questions will be raised and answered, like:

– How do you survive when the whole world wants to eat you?
– Where does hope come from when you’re the last one alive?
– Where are all the zombies going, and what on Earth do they really want?

Would you survive? Measure yourself against Amo- get your copy now!

    Thank you Tara, I’m so glad to hear that you finished it in a day- wow! Really glad it brought out all those emotional reactions too. Book 5 is coming…

  3. I am so glad I read this book on Kindle. I thought it was a fun read. So many books on Kindle are dreadful. Poor spelling, poor grammar, poor syntax..just poor. But This novel was a rich delight. Not an apostrophe or comma out of place. Thank you, Mr Grist for making the zombie genre fun again!

  4. I usually don’t like zombie stories that differ much from the original slow moving, brain eating kind.. But i have to say… I liked it, a lot. First time ever… I enjoyed the quirkiness of Amo too… Looks like I found a new author… Thanks Michael

  6. Such an awesome zombie book unlike others that are so predictable. Have searched a long time to find one like this. Ready for book two now 🙂

  7. Loved the Last! I enjoy zombie books and have to admit I am getting tired of the same old, same old story lines. The Last takes a whole new twist on the zombie apocalypse, great characters, suspense, twists and unexpected turns. This was so good that I continued on to The Lost, The Least, The Loss, The List, The Laws and now I am reading The Lash. OMG! Never saw any of the situations coming. Very Inventive, smart, and makes you think. Thanks for the great stories, appreciate your hard work and imagination!

  10. This is what I consider to be a “fun, fast read.” The story was interesting and the book was well written. Reading it allowed me to escape in to the world of zombies. A few times I even laughed out loud. Recommend this book to your friends.
