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

7 billion zombies. 1 man.

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
