Bantam is to publish Dead Island, the official novelisation of Deep Silver’s game, written by British Fantasy Award winning author, Mark Morris. The release will coincide with the release with the video game. Dead Island is said to offer a terrifying glimpse into the horrors thrust upon the four individuals who have unwittingly embarked upon the ultimate holiday from Hell.
From the press release:
For guests of the five-star Royal Palms Resort it was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday; an escape to the stunning beaches of a tropical paradise unlike any other. But a mysterious zombie outbreak suddenly – and without warning – rips apart the pacific paradise island of Banoi, and four individuals with distinctive backgrounds and abilities seem to be unaffected by the zombie apocalypse.
As the zombie outbreak spreads, will they be strong enough to stand against the endless zombie hordes, to protect the remaining survivors from a horrible fate and to flee the island?
In the face of an unprecedented zombie apocalypse, they have only one thing left to do: survive.
Welcome to the holiday paradise where your dreams should come true…
but where a nightmare is about to begin…
