Maxim Jakubowski's view...

In the wake of World War Z, the 28 Days movies and TV series The Walking Dead, we've been deluged by a surfeit of zombie trash, but The Walkin' Trilogy by Towsey succeeds in infusing the sub-genre with both empathy and a strong sense of the human (or should that be non human?) dilemma the state of being dead presents. Following a near apocalyptic event, soldier Thomas returns from the bloody front as a zombie. Part road trip and part small-town family drama, the initial volume, Your Brother's Blood, set the scene. Here, seven years later, Thomas and family have left their village on a quest for some form of truth, which will keep on eluding them. An elegiac western mood dominates the book and already makes us hanker after the final volume in the series where many questions will have to be answered.

Synopsis

Your Servants and Your People by David Towsey

Seven years after Thomas returned as a Walkin', the McDermott family are looking for a new life and Thomas has set his heart on starting a farmstead near the remote outpost of Fort Wilson. But the teachings of J.S. Barkley are not so easily forsaken - there are those who would see the sinners dead, and they are slowly closing in.

Reviews

'Just as gripping and compelling as Your Brother's Blood ... very much worth your time'
A Fantastical Librarian

'Fort Wilson [...] has that foreboding feeling of say the house from Amytiville Horror and like the town of Barkley in the first book, it becomes a character
Sleepless Musings Of A Well Groomed Moustached Man
