Praise for dEaDINBURGH:
"dEaDINBURGH is an intriguing read, and a breathtakingly assured and fearless foray into Horror writing by an author who literally takes it up a gear with every new release he unleashes into the world."- Ryan Bracha, author of Tomorrow's Chip Paper and The Dead Man Series.
What the Readers say:
"Wilson has created a story of horror, yes, definitely, but it's also one of friendship, loyalty, betrayal and intrigue with a good dash of humour."
"Throughout this novel, the reader is given tantalising pieces of information which ratchets up the tension."
"The plot had me screaming out loud, normally I see the plot coming from a mile away. Boy, this one had me surprised."
"For a book that's considered young adult, I found it very realistic, harsh, and mature in its themes of friendship, survival and family. There is no fluff in this story. Oh, and did I mention the twist at the end? Never saw that coming."
"I think I liked this better than Rot and Ruin...just don't tell Jonathan Mayberry."
"This book for me was more than just another zombie story it was a story of how humankind adapts and changes in order to survive."
