According to author Brown, it was only after the release of the 4th book of the series that the worldwide sale gained pace and reached the numbers that even Brown had not imagined in his wildest dreams. The series is told in the form of three chapters in rotation. Its first chapter is told from the perspective of first person and is narrated by Steve Hobart. He is depicted as a man, who is made the leader of a survivors’ group that struggles to be alive in the harsh conditions, without his choice or interest. The next chapter of this particular series follows the story of 4 self professed zombie ‘geeks’. These geeks initially think that the apocalypse of zombies is going to be filled with fun. But, they discover it later that the apocalypse is nothing like what is shown in the movies.

Then the 3rd rotating chapter of the zombie series is known as ‘Vignettes’. This particular chapter shows snapshots from all over the world. A few of the vignettes are episodes comprising of only one chapter, while several others continue threads carrying on for a few chapters. Some of the chapters of the 3rd rotating chapter are merged with that of the storyline of the Geek of Steve Hobart.

An initial book written by author T.W. Brown in the Dead series is entitled ‘Dead : Revelations’. It was released by the May December publication in the year 2011.

At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that the community of zombies has risen, because of which a lot of chaos has spread in all parts of the world.

The zombies attack and hunt down every species that they come across, especially the humans. After getting killed, the victims also turn into zombies and this way, the zombies increase at a very faster rate. This seems to be happening in every country on the world map. A small group manages to survive the apocalypse and struggle with each passing day to remain alive. Because of the worldwide attack of the zombies, the worst and best of the human species come together to fight against the undead and also among themselves. As the struggle continues, the humans come to terms with the new, violent, and hard reality.

The description of the plot continues through the eyes of Steve Hobart, who also struggles to manage his duties of leading a survivors’ band and taking care of a Hispanic young girl.

Steve Hobart begins to wonder whether he will be able to save the lives of the remaining survivors or lose them either to the murderer or walking dead. Being the leader of then group, he understands that it is his responsibility to prevent any harm coming to them.

They also have a lot of faith in him and hope that he manages to save them when the zombies come in large numbers to hunt them. On the other hand, Kevin turns out to be the only geek standing. Later, he gets reunited with one of his old acquaintances. This makes him the in-charge of another survivors’ group once again. Now, Kevin also wonders if he is going to emerge victorious in things that he believes he has prepared himself for? Juan seems to be struggling with the past of MacKenzie.
