Zombie Book Of the Day: Enthralled by D. Ryan Gish

Like all things in Shane McCall’s life, a trip to the grocery store for a gallon of milk should be simple. No decisions required. Especially not the kind he’s forced to make when an old woman attempts to steal his three-year-old son. And after returning his children home safely, nothing would have pleased Shane more than to forget the incident ever happened. That was several hours ago,     
…before the strange man bit a chunk out of Shane’s arm…          ...before the cryptic word showed up on his mute son’s bedroom wall…
               …before the screaming began.

Now Shane and his family are on a race to leave civilization before doomsday takes over and they become the walking dead they’re desperately evading. But others are hunting them too. Gangs form, outlaws preying on the weak with no society to keep them in check, as Shane leads his family through them to the wild frontier in a splay of bullets. Yet, even in the quiet dark of their new home, they aren’t safe as a new magic in the form of a sorceress harbinger bears news of impending doom and extinction. A darkness is coming, a dark force that wants Shane’s children and doesn’t care if anyone else survives.
