A strange virus causes the recently dead to rise with an insatiable desire to eat the living. The epidemic is worldwide and quickly rises to catastrophic proportions as civilization collapses under the burden of a horror unmatched in human history.

The survivors at a rescue center must work together to find a way to make it through the waking nightmare, but time is running out and there's more to worry about than the reanimated corpses filling the streets and parking lots of our cities..

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 Now
