Horror author D. A. Roberts had me so enthralled that I had to have him back for Halloween Spooktacular. Back again to read more from his debut novel, Ragnarok Rising, we'll learn more about his characters and this incredible new series.


Ragnarok Rising: The Awakening

Initial reports of rioting and chaos begin to appear in the news, slowly spreading east from California. As the unusual "riots" come closer and closer however, internet videos show rioters eating those they overtake. Officer Wylie Grant finds himself manning a remote checkpoint, where only Wylie and Corporal Chrissy Wilder survive. Their new goal becomes to make the trip back to the Nathaniel County Sheriff's Office, where the few remaining officers are attempting to regroup. Thinking ahead, Wylie and Corporal Wilder attempt to rescue as many survivors as they can and gather as many resources as possible along the way. Wiley finds that the zombies are not the only enemy humanity is facing. In some cases, they are the lesser evil. Wylie and his team are faced with the realization that no one is coming for them, and the government that they had thought to be their ally has become yet another enemy in an increasingly hostile world.
