The year is 2028, and Dallas and Raleigh Jenson are torn apart when a worldwide zombie apocalypse ravages their home of Townsville, Australia. After a year of searching, Dallas, a former Australian army rifleman, finally reunites with Raleigh, but it’s not like old times. Not only do they have zombies to contend with, but also other humans, changed by desperation and willing to do anything to survive.

Dallas and Raleigh have changed too. So much so, that Dallas struggles with the idea that Raleigh no longer needs or wants his protection. But they will need to rely on each other and find strength in their love as they are forced to evade zombies and watch their friends die. As they fight for their lives in a brutal landscape where every supply and every step toward a potential cure is a battle to the death, only their trust in each other can keep them from perishing.

Excerpt:

“Everything will be all right.”

“Will it, though?” Raleigh stared at him out of the corner of his eyes. “I’ve seen the movies, Dallas. I know how it goes. I don’t want to live in a life like that.” When they reached the door to the next floor, Raleigh twisted the knob and opened it, guiding him inside. “I thought about killing myself, you know.”

“What?” Dallas reeled back. Silence filled the room, the only sounds a dripping pipe and zombies’ roars from outside.

Raleigh wouldn’t look at him. He stared at the peeling black walls, his jaw tense. The Raleigh that Dallas remembered would be in tears, but this Raleigh wasn’t. He was sad, but he held in the tears. With Raleigh crossing his arms over his chest protectively, though, Dallas saw more of his Raleigh there, his soft heart hiding beneath the tough shell that this world had created.

“When?” Dallas asked, trying not to choke on his words. This room stunk of antiseptic liquids of some kind, and it nearly burned his nose. But nothing could distract him from what Raleigh was saying, not with the bombshell his husband had dropped on him.

“About six months in.” Raleigh took a step forward, and Dallas opened his good arm, pulling him closer. Raleigh pressed his face into Dallas’s neck. “I looked for you. Janey and I did. I was beginning to think you were dead. And this world… I hate it, Dal. Your friends die every day. You don’t know when it will be your last. There is no hope. No future. They outnumber us, and they are getting stronger. I was so lost without you. You were always my rock. I… I looked at my gun and I thought, maybe I could end it all. Right now.”

Meet the author:

Meg Bawden was born and raised in North Queensland, Australia. She’s loved stories since before she can remember and has always enjoyed creating characters of her own, even if it did begin with drawing faces on toilet rolls and giving them names. Writing has always been a passion of hers and she’s loved the M/M genre since 2004, the first book she read being Rainbow Boys by Alex Sanchez.

Writing M/M since 2007, Meg has never had the confidence to attempt publishing her own stories, but in 2015, she decided that it was all about to change thanks to the amazing friends she’s made in the M/M genre and their support and encouragement. So watch out world, Meg Bawden is coming out to have some fun!
