Dead Island by Mark Morris

Dead Island is set to become one of the biggest game releases of 2011. The official announcement trailer has already gained over 10 million views. And Dead Island, the official novelisation of Deep Silver’s game, written by BFS Award winning author Mark Morris, is due for simultaneous release with the video game (published by Bantam in September).

‘Dead Island offers a terrifying glimpse into the horrors thrust upon the four individuals who have unwittingly embarked upon the ultimate holiday from Hell. For guests of the five-star Royal Palms Resort it was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday; an escape to the stunning beaches of a tropical paradise unlike any other. But a mysterious zombie outbreak suddenly — and without warning — rips apart the pacific paradise island of Banoi.

The four individuals with distinctive backgrounds and abilities seem to be unaffected by the zombie apocalypse. As the zombie outbreak spreads, will they be strong enough to stand against the endless zombie hordes, to protect the remaining survivors from a horrible fate and to flee the island? In the face of an unprecedented zombie apocalypse, they have only one thing left to do: survive.’
