Empire (2nd Edition)
Author: David Dunwoody
Publisher: Permuted Press / Gallery Books
Release Date: March 16th, 2010
The year is 2112, and humanity is giving up its fight against the zombie hordes. And Death himself has risen in their place — this time, the dead will stay dead.
The crippled U.S. government and its military forces are giving up the century-long fight against an undead plague. Born of an otherworldly energy fused with a deadly virus, the ravaging hordes of zombified humans and animals have no natural enemies. But they do have one supernatural enemy: Death himself.
Descending upon the ghost town of Jefferson Harbor, Louisiana, the Grim Reaper embarks on a bloody campaign to put down the legions that have defied his touch for so long. He will find allies in the city’s last survivors, and a nemesis in a man who wants to harness the force driving the zombies — a man who seeks to rebuild America into an empire of the dead.

Nothing ever happened in Ondine, Louisiana, not even the summer Elijah Landry disappeared- that was an incident, and one most everybody forgot. But fourteen-year-old Iris Rhame, certain she saw his ghost in the town cemetery, is determined to find out the truth behind “The Incident With the Landry Boy.”
What Iris doesn’t realize is that in a town as small as Ondine, every secret is a family secret.
