Dead Living begins the day the dead rise and start devouring the living. Glenn, love this book. Mr. Bullion, Dead Living is one of the better zombie novels I’ve read in a while. It also happens to be the same day Aaron is born. His father, Joe, is the character we get acquainted with first. As such, I recommended it to several friends. Very cool take on the genre, the story was very tight and well paced.

It read a lot like Mr. Kim Paffenroth's works in the way it feels. Glenn Bullion is now one of my top 5 authors. He makes you care about the characters. They feel like family at times. If you like Kim's characters and worldbuilding, I think you would like this one a lot. It's not the bloody, gory, hardcore stuff, but there is some of that in there.

It took a few days for the new arrivals to acclimate. Some of the ex-slaves. Some of the ex-slaves were full of surprises. An older man named Tom turned out to be just as good a gardener as Susan. Everyone worked hard to help out. Sam wasn't ready for the attention she received. Everyone was happy to have Aaron back. She expected that much.

Glenn Bullion has given it a damn good try and for me it is a success. Debi Faulkner, author of SUMMONING. Everyone knows the spheres of light that mingle with society are souls. When a person dies their soul leaves the body until it’s time for reincarnation. Only the privileged can afford soul insurance, a way to continue on after dying. The living don’t know what the afterlife holds, that period of time between bodies

It didn’t take long for the world to die. And it didn’t take long, either, for the dead to rise. Aaron was born on the day the world ended. Kept in seclusion, his family teaches him the basics. How to read and write. Then Aaron makes a shocking discovery. The undead, who desire nothing but flesh, ignore him. It’s as if he’s invisible to them. Dead Living - Glenn Bullion.

It didn’t take long for the world to die. The dead rose with no explanation and only one purpose...to eat living flesh. Born on the day everything died, the world of the living dead is the only world that Aaron knows. Kept in relative isolation from the walking corpses, his family teaches him how to read and write, how to survive on his own. After a tragedy hits close to home, he discovers he is different than any human left alive. The undead want nothing to do with him. The survivors of the old suburb of Lexington call a high school their home. They survive day to day, without any of the luxuries mankind used to enjoy, and surrounded by the living dead. Samantha is a product of the new world. Alone, cold, looking out only for herself. She and the other residents of Lexington feel their hope dwindling. They need change. They need someone who isn't afraid of the walking corpses. They need someone who would rather live in a city of the dead. They need Aaron.

"Dead Living" by Glenn Bullion is one of the rare books in this genre that is a complete story - not one suddenly ending on the edge of a cliff and then forcing readers to purchase the next book(s) in the series. Thank you Mr. Bullion!

First off, I'd like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story...it's fiction and a result of the author's imagination. Isn't the purpose of a book to allow readers to get away from their normal daily grind to take a trip to someplace they've never been...to a life never imagined...witnessing events that are new, exciting or terrifying to readers. Who cares if the gasoline is 23 yrs. old and vehicles are still used, whiskey is found in a nearby home that was surprisingly overlooked for 23 yrs and zombies are still wearing clothes after all this time. It's a story...go with the flow and stop criticizing a book because you found some facts that may be incorrect, typos or poor sentence structure. A book is a form of entertainment and not written for the sole purpose of challenging readers to see how many imperfections they can find. That's not reading!

As for the story itself, the author presents some new twists in this post-apocalypse tome - Aaron was born on the first day of the of the event and learns to be self sufficient by his father and others as they survive in the mountains. The story jumps twice within the first several chapters, the first time, 14 yrs and then again to a period 9 yrs. later - both periods have a profound impact on the main character.. He has a special gift that he doesn't want others to know...he can walk and live among the zombies without being accosted - scavenging is as simple as going shopping!. The other twist is that some zombies are deemed "thinkers", who are able to learn and then lead others in battle.

Aaron rescues a girl, Samantha, who is part of a scavenging team; she is in trouble, but not because of zombies - her two fellow team members decide that this is a good time to rape and kill her. She had lived with 60 others in a small community for several years, but doesn't like people and won't do anything to help the community unless she receives payment. The girl is rough and tough, and eventually, Aaron has a big impact upon her and she changes - befriending everyone and volunteering around the community. She, too, was born after the event and doesn't know how life was before the event and doesn't share in the special power that Aaron has. However, they soon learn there are others!.

There are a few scrapes with zombies and bad people (slave traders), but much of the story focuses upon Aaron and "Sam" within the small community - working hard to make life more comfortable. The last third of the book is non-stop action and once you get that far, there's no stopping until you finish the story. Great job Mr. Bullion!

I'm an easy mark for Glenn Bullion's brand of horror/urban fantasy. His storytelling is right up my alley. He narrates with pace. He works in these crackling action beats. But he also knows when to slow down to develop plot and character. Because the key, as it ever was, is to make you, dear reader, care for the characters in the story. Else, why bother taking them to the woodshed, if you don't give a what?

With Dead Living, Bullion fashions a mesmerizing post-apocalyptic zombie tale. The challenge with writing zombie fiction is how do you make it original enough that it stands out from the pack? Bullion achieves a measure of originality by introducing us to Aaron Thompson, a quite unique protagonist.

There are essentially two prologue sequences. We get a sense of how everything rapidly went to crap on that day when the dead came back to life, the same day that Aaron was born. The narrative then transports us 14 years later to a post-apocalyptic world, to the day Aaron found out how he was different from everyone else.

The story proper begins nine years after that as we get acquainted with a band of suburbanites holing up in a high school in Lexington, Maryland. As someone who likes to be prepared for every eventuality (because you never know), I'm always interested in the author's detailing of how the characters go about their day-to-day business of surviving, and Bullion does us a solid here. This Lexington bunch is organized enough and have survived long enough that a sense of community has been established. There's a schedule in play for tasks like sentry duty and supply runs. Stuff like tools and weapons are signed out. So there's order here. But hope is fading.

Samantha's never known the old life. From when very young, she's had to fend for herself. Having found haven in the Lexington high school, Samantha fiercely clings to her coldness and self-interest and her distrust of everyone. So what's she to make of this 23-year-old guy named Aaron whom she runs into during a supply run to Baltimore? It's suspicious enough that Aaron has made a home in the ruins of Baltimore, just himself and the teeming undead. She can't get over how Aaron seems so cheerful and so confident. But when Samantha gets left behind, Aaron may be her only hope to escape Baltimore unscathed.

Honestly, there's yet to be a Bullion story where I didn't tear thru it avidly. Dead Living is another quick page-flipper. Bullion expertly stresses the horror explicit in the zombie genre while capturing the generosity and, obversely, the worst side of the human spirit. The undead's instinctive predations aren't nearly as abominable as some of the vile atrocities committed by the humans. And maybe that's the point of every zombie story. It makes us question which is the bigger monster: the zombies or us? Ultimately, for gorehounds, this story may not be as hardcore or as graphic as hoped.

Also, I love that, 23 years into this post-apocalyptic world, young people who can read are sort of looked at with amazement.

Think of Dead Living as a more hopeful zombie tale. Mostly, it's because of Aaron and Samantha ("Sam" to Aaron, Samantha to everyone else). Early on, Samantha's hard-bitten cynicism and bump of self-preservation collide with Aaron's good spirits and ready willingness to help people. No matter how hard she pushed Aaron away, he was always there for her. It's gratifying to see her gradually drop her guard and become a more caring person. Gratifying as well to see the lengths she'd go to, to keep Aaron safe. Sam is badass. If you're looking for a different kind of zombie story - one that features an unusual hero and a terrific love story and even a surprise or two regarding the walking dead - well, this one's your huckleberry.
