I personally love when I am able to dip further into lore and backstory to fill a giant puzzle piece of the universe that it belongs in. I am already aware that Danny Trejo is out there fly kicking Zombies, however, the new upcoming novel will certainly tickle my fancy.

The author who is known to many in the tabletop industry, Josh Reynolds, an incredibly established writer due to his involvement with Games Workshop's Black Library has embedded gore and rich backstory, featuring the state of the world in the midst of the zombie apocalypse.

The story takes place on the Adirondack Mountains, as humanity is forced to head out to safety and into hiding outside of the City of New York. The protagonist, Westlake is tough as nails. He is in seek of "The Villa", an established crime hideout where he can tick by the days as they pass in safety... away from the brain eaters! However "The Villa" has other plans for humanities survival, putting Westlake at the helm of a large group of locals avoiding danger at all costs.

The novel is set to release on the 5th October, and available as both a paperback and an ebook for downloads. So if you are looking for your next story-driven adventure, relevant to a world you have lived in to survive the onslaught of zombies: Zombicide: Last Resort promises to keep the theme alive through a deadly tale of survival.
