Imagine being trapped aboard the doomed Titanic on an icy Atlantic. . . with the walking dead. This fast-paced thriller reimagines the historical events of the fateful Titanic voyage through the lens of zombie mayhem. Captain Edward Smith and his inner circle desperately try to contain a weaponized zombie virus smuggled on board with the 2,200 passengers sailing to New York. Faced with an exploding population of lumbering, flesh-hungry undead, Smith's team is forced into bloody hand-to-hand combat down the narrow halls of the huge steamer. In its few short days at sea, the majestic Titanic turns into a Victorian bloodbath, steaming at top speed toward a cold, blue iceberg. A creepy, tense page-turner, Deck Z will thrill zombie fans and Titanic buffs alike.

24/1 - I'm really enjoying the way the subject of zombies is being taken seriously, treated as a retelling of something that could have, or even did actually happen. Haven't read much, so that's all the insights I have gleaned so far. To be continued...

28/1 - The way this book is written as an in-depth retelling of a disaster was interesting and made the whole story, even the zombies, seem more likely. The authors must have done a good amount of research to be able to write about the real-life characters real lives - their families, lives prior to boarding the Titanic, etc. Anyone who, like me, really didn't like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies because there was no explanation for the zombies' existence and have therefore avoided all similar monster/classic mash-ups, should give this one a go because it's completely different.

If you enjoy historical fiction novels you are sure to kick out of this one. Not only does it include the mysteries of the Titanic , but also the intrigue of zombies. It's a page-turner that will keep you on edge of your seat until the very last sentence. Find a comfortable spot when you read this one, because you're in for the long haul.
