William Burke (producer/director Destination America's television series (OR hit series) Hauntings and Horrors, Cinemax's Forbidden Science and the cult comedy Sweet Prudence and the Erotic Adventures of Bigfoot) brings his Hollywood experience to the world of horror novels with Voodoo Child, Book One: Zombie Uprising and he succeeds in a big way with a monster amount of critical acclaim.
"With a great lead female protagonist, richly colorful set of secondary characters, plenty of roaring action, and an intense storyline that allows no boring moments, "Voodoo Child" is an intense, entertaining and memorable novel. Highly recommended." Columbia Review of Books and Film.
Army chopper pilot Maggie Child has a reputation for being fearless, professional and, above all, rational. But when she’s shot down over Iraq her well-ordered life spirals into a paranormal nightmare. Alone, wounded and surrounded by hostile forces, Maggie is rescued from certain death by a demon straight out of Dante’s Inferno. Then, barely alive, she’s abducted by a private military corporation conducting insidious medical experiments. Her escape from their covert hellhole lands her on a Caribbean island where an evil voodoo spirit and a psychotic female dictator are conspiring to unleash an apocalyptic zombie plague. Then she uncovers the most terrifying secret of all—her own destiny. It seems a Voodoo oracle has ordained her the only warrior capable of saving humanity from a supernatural Armageddon … whether she wants the job or not!
But saving the world isn’t a one-woman job, so she teams up with a trio of unlikely heroes—a conspiracy obsessed marijuana smuggler, a Voodoo priestess with an appetite for reality television, and a burnt out ex-mercenary. Together, they’ll take on an army of the walking dead, with the fate of humanity resting in their eccentric hands.
