9780062048783: On Her Majesty's Behalf: The Great Undead War: Book II

The outrageously inventive follow-up to By the Blood of HeroesInglourious Basterds meets Dawn of the Dead in this steampunk alternate history World War I zombie novel.

At the close of 1917, the Germans introduced a new type of gas, T-Leiche—“corpse gas”—a revolutionary weapon that changed the war. Instead of killing the living, T-Leiche resurrected the bodies of the dead.

Though they survived the killing fields of France, the danger has only just begun for veteran Captain Michael "Madman" Burke and company. They've just been assigned a new mission: rescue Princess Veronica, the sole surviving member of the British royal family. But Kaiser Manfred Von Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and new leader of Germany, is determined to find Veronica as well.

In the devastated, zombie-infested city of London, Burke and his men will face off in an unholy battle with their most formidable opponent yet: a team led by none other than his infected former right-hand man, Sergeant Moore. If they don't succeed, all of Britain will fall into undead Central hands.

Product Description:

At the tail end of 1917 the Germans introduced a new type of gas to the battlefield, T-Leiche, or `corpse gas', which changed 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. After surviving the killing fields of France, Burke and his men are sent into the devastated, zombie-infested city of London to rescue Princess Veronica, the sole surviving member of the royal family. However, Kaiser Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and now leader of Germany, learns of her survival.

Review:

“Joseph Nassise’s apparently boundless imagination and thoroughly engaging storytelling make even the most unlikely of stories compelling. ... Intensely absorbing and suspenseful. ... it all adds up to a story that won’t be easy to put down or forget.” (RT Book Reviews (top pick))

Praise for By the Blood of Heroes:“Relentless pacing, nonstop action, and improbable but nifty-sounding military gadgetry (portable personal gliding devices, magnetism grenades) power an unremittingly entertaining story line that with broad appeal for history buffs, horror aficionados, and fans of steampunk.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Joe Nassise delivers one amazing alternative history adventure in By the Blood of Heroes....a tour-de-force of adrenaline-drenched mayhem.” (Joe Merz, author of Shadow Warrior and Lawson Vampire series)

“I would argue Joseph Nassise is the most important thing to happen to zombies since Max Brooks, and that’s no hyperbole. He’s really that good.” (Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Easters)

“Heretic keep[s] us off-guard and entertained with its every surprising move.” (Peter Straub on Heretic)

“First-rate, stylish work from Mr. Nassise, with a steady escalation of the story’s speed that makes it almost literally breath-taking.” (Clive Barker on Heretic)

“BY THE BLOOD OF HEROES is a genre-twisting madhouse of horror, Steampunk SF and zombie madness that is too damn much fun to miss! Buckle up...this is a wild ride!” (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestseller of Rot & Ruin and Flesh & Bone)

“A breakneck-paced thriller that delivers on the thrills and tosses in more than a few chills.” (Kelley Armstrong on Heretic)

“Urban fantasy and sf author Nassise­ (Eyes To See) raises the alternate history genre to brilliant new heights. This is a treat for zombie and horror fans, military fiction aficionados, history buffs, and steampunk lovers alike, all of whom will be clamoring for the next installment.” (Library Journal)
