Publisher's Summary

Man is no longer at the top of the food chain.
The Purge has devastated the globe, turning much of humanity into night-dwelling, bloodthirsty creatures (dubbed "ghouls" by the survivors), while small pockets of remaining humans have managed to carry on.
With the loss of their sanctuary, Will and his small band of survivors are forced to seek shelter. Following the call of a mysterious radio broadcast, they make the treacherous journey to Louisiana, where an island might hold the key to survival.
Along the way they meet new survivors, clash with new enemies, and renew old acquaintances that have been forever altered. Collaborators - humans working with the ghouls - are more dangerous than ever, and the ghouls have begun a new phase of their domination.
Will learns that a larger war between survivors and ghouls is raging in the rest of the country, but before he can join the fight, he must first ensure the continued survival of his group at all costs.
Where the Purge ends, the Gates beckon...

The exciting continuation to the Babylon series

What did you love best about The Gates of Byzantium?

The first book in this series started a strong endeavor in world building, while never deviating from the importance of character development. Gates of Byzantium continued on the path of creating a complex, in-depth exploration into a brilliant conceptualization of a post-apocolypic zombie world.

What other book might you compare The Gates of Byzantium to and why?

I would hesitate to compare this book to others. Sam Sisavath has done a phenomenal job of creating an original story, and I believe he has succeeded to the degree of crafting a unique saga that, while comparable to elements of other books, is best considered in its own context.

Which character – as performed by Adam Danoff – was your favorite?

I was pleased with Adam's performance with all of the characters, and really could not single one out as a favorite.

Who was the most memorable character of The Gates of Byzantium and why?

As with character performance, I did not feel one character was more memorable than the rest-- each character contributes a unique facet to the overall story.

Any additional comments?

While there are a number of "zombie books" out there, I would highly recommend this series for its novel take upon the genre. You will find that the plot never dulls as you progress through the story arc, and while some events are predictable, each book will surprise you with a new twist.

Another great novel from Sam.!

The first novel Purge of Babylon really captured my imagination. All the res of the following series is just as captivating. I can see and feel the scenes. Sometimes you get a great story in the first book of the series and then it loses momentum. This isn't the case with the Purge of Babylon series. They are all equally exciting. Doesn't feel like some of the cookie cutter series I've seen. If you haven't yet read any of his novels download the preview and you'll be hooked like I was.
