Spotlight on: Journal of a South African Zombie Apocalypse
South Africa has been infected.
The army and police failed. Government fell.
And now the dead roam the street.
Journal of a South African Zombie Apocalypse by Lee Herrmann is a post-apocalyptic story set in South Africa, 2 years after a mysterious outbreak has ravaged the country. Now most of the rainbow nation is mindless, walking zombies and it's survive or be eaten.
16 year old Kon, his brother and father leave their Pretoria home and embark on a journey across the country to Robben Island, a reputed safe haven. Along the way they befriend other survivors, and face an unrecognizable new world filled with new dangers.
Oh, and there are lots and lots of zombies.
Journal of a South African Zombie Apocalypse is a coming of age story in a very different South Africa, and chronicles one family's fight for survival against the walking dead.
