Dead Soil by Alex Apostol

Iceland and Dead Soil

I was asked to review this, but you can get it on Kindle for a reasonable price.


Zombies have accidentally been created and let lose on the world. It is a gripping, emotional story of survival and how people from different walks of life work (and don’t work!) together. 


I was asked if I would be interested in reading this book as the first book in a series about a zombie apocalypse. Whilst I have read about the end of the world as we know it, and seen different films on it, I haven’t actually read about a zombie apocalypse, so I thought that I would rectify this and agreed to read the book.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it really gripped me from the beginning and took me on an emotional journey. It had a lot of characters in it, all with different background stories, but they were cleverly written to give a smooth read. I was really taken in by all the characters and their lives. The setting was just an average neighbourhood which, for me, made it scarier as it was more relatable and kept making me wonder what I would do in a zombie apocalypse!

With the pandemic that our world is currently facing, it brought the story quite close to home and made me really relate to the fear and the sadness that the characters were going through. 

It wasn’t the typical happily ever after book, which I liked as it made the story feel more real (and added to the emotion of it all!).

An excellent start to the series and I can’t wait to read more!

⭐Rated 5/5⭐
