Fans of post-apocalyptic science fiction and zombie movies are going to love this sci fi comedy with a little bit of heart. 

After the world collapses when a zombie plague sweeps the nation, a three time father has two choices. Stay hiding in his house or go hunt for his children with their mother and step-father just to make sure they're safe. 

How tragic would it be if you had no idea what happened to your kids when a disaster occurred? No amount of survivalist training can prepare you for a break down in society when all the tools we use to stay in touch are no longer available. 

When Dad decides to take off from Florida to Arkansas to check on the safety of his children, he discovers Z aren't the only awful things left in the world. The survivors are just as ruthless, just as deadly and the only way to really survive is with off the cuff gallows humor. 

Fast paced with laugh out loud moments and maybe even a sniffle or two this book would be good for fans of Harry Dresden, even if there are walking dead involved. 

This is the first in a series of six books about a Dad's hunt for his kids and answers after the end of the world. If you head over to, you can sign up for a free sci fi novel and get all the latest release details

Battlefield Z by Chris Lowry (Battlefield Z, #1)

He hadn’t been the model husband-twice, nor was he the perfect Dad, but this average Joe will become a man on a mission when the Zgeddon strikes and the world as we know it no longer exists. Get ready to fight zombies, the neighbors and a crazed military faction alongside a ragtag group of survivors as our hero recounts his journey to find his children and keep them safe, if it isn’t too late.

No, we aren’t talking about an over-the-top, trained warrior, we are talking about a rather sarcastic, yet painfully realistic accidental leader with anger management issues that are finally going to serve him well. Told in the voice of our “Dad,” prepare for some dry humor, common sense actions and even some amazing acts of heroism in the face of a world caught up in total devastation.

Chris Lowry’s BATTLEFIELD Z is a slightly sideways look at one man’s quest to be all he should have been, to be the protector of his children and nothing will stand in his way as he begins a perilous journey from Florida to Alabama. Nothing is going to stop this man, not roving zombies, cultists sacrificing women to appease, well, heck, I’m not sure who, exactly, because it was drugs that started this whole humanity imploding disaster.

With just the right touch of tension, darkness and urgency, Chris Lowry creates a pretty darn good tale that, should we actually face Zgeddon, we can feel confident that we do stand a miniscule chance of survival. Our hero can be acidic, and certainly being inside his head lets us know he is pretty regular, pretty messed up and pretty unprepared for what he is facing. I have to hand it to him, he wings it well and I was completely entertained from start to finish! You may want to take notes on how to kill a zombie and how to run across the tops of cars, because apparently there is a right way and a wrong way for both.
