Grayson Donnelly, a former Army officer and his fiancé Emory must each fight for their own survival as the nation battles to end the zombie threat—before it becomes a global pandemic.
An ancient fundamentalist organization known as the Brotherhood of Niyyat executes several attacks simultaneously across the globe. Sleeper cells are awakened in North America, Europe and Asia. One of the cells infiltrates the Pentagon and unleashes a deadly viral compound. The airborne virus mutates in the lungs of the Pentagon’s population of twenty-five thousand, turning them into zombies and forcing the military to quarantine one of their most recognizable icons.
Across the country, a Secret Service agent, coerced by the terrorists to assassinate several heads of state at the annual G8 Summit, sends the world into chaos.
Grayson Donnelly, a former Army officer, is forced to fight for his life in the Midwest while his fiancé Emory is trapped in the Washington, DC quarantine zone.
A veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan war, Brian Parker was born and raised as an Army brat. He moved all over the country as a child before his father retired from the service and they settled in a small Missouri town where the family purchased a farm. It was on the farm that he learned the rewards of a hard day's work and enjoyed the escapism that books could provide. He’s currently an Active Duty Army soldier who enjoys spending time with his family in Texas, hiking, obstacle course racing, writing and Texas Longhorns football. His wife is also an Active Duty soldier and the pairing brings its own unique set of circumstances that keep both of them on their toes. He's an unashamed Star Wars fan, but prefers to disregard the entire Episode I and II debacle. Brian self-published four books before signing a 4-book contract with Permuted Press. His novels GNASH and Enduring Armageddon were previously self-published and will be re-released by Permuted along with two previously unpublished works, REND and SEVER. Besides the extensive collection of horror works, he is also the author of several non-horror works, including the children’s picture book Zombie in the Basement which is written to help children overcome the perceived stigma of being different than others.
