No Easy Hope is the book that started it all in the Surviving the Dead series. Eric Riordan was a wealthy man living the good life until a friend of his from the Marine Corps told him how the world was going to end. From that point forward, Riordan started preparing and he thought he was ready for anything, but he really wasn’t. No one was. The dead are rising up from the ground and destroying the world. His only hope for survival is to flee to the Appalachian Mountains. The journey will be very difficult and he’ll have to fight his way there to survive the end of the world.

The Hellbreakers is another book in the Surviving the Dead series, but it is quite different from the other books in the series. The book follows Alexander Muir, a former MMA fighter, who has been surviving for the past six years on his own. His life is turned upside down when a huge caravan representing a militant group that wants to take the world back. Alexander will be forced to choose between keeping his identity as the loner in the desert or taking up arms with the new militia to try and fix the world.
