By the Blood of Heroes: The Great Undead War: Book I


About the Book

Action and swords and sorcery... a fabulous series about Burke's Marauders from this internationally published author A great new adventure fantasy... action and sorcery from an internationally acclaimed author. At the tale end of 1917 the Germans introduced a new type of gas to the battlefield. T-Leiche, commonly known as "corpse gas", changes the face of the war; rather than affect the living, it resurrects the bodies of the dead, giving the enemy an almost unlimited source of fresh troops. When the American Ace, Major Jack Freeman, is downed over enemy lines and taken captive, veteran Captain Michael "Madman" Burke is the only man brave and foolish enough to accept the mission to recover Freeman. Burke assembles a team, including Sergeant Moore, his right-hand man during the war; the big game hunter turned soldier Clayton Manning; and professor Dan Richards, one of Tesla's top men, and the resident authority on all things supernatural. Using an experimental drilling vehicle to infiltrate enemy territory, the team faces incredible danger as they struggle to reach the prison camp. From ruthless smugglers who betray them to the Germans, to marauding bands of the undead, they find risk and peril at every turn. It is only when they arrive at the prison camp that the true importance of their mission is unveiled. While in captivity, Freeman has discovered the enemy's deepest secret - how they control the ravenous army of the undead!
