About this Book
In October 2013, a chaotic infection spread across Britain, turning the majority of the population into bloodthirsty zombies.
The weak fell. Many of the strong fell, too. The only survivors were those willing to sink to the most brutal depths of humanity in order to further their own existence.
Dead Days is the story of a group of those survivors.
Season Two of the thrilling, nail-biting series picks up right where Season One left off. After a chaotic escape from their home town, Riley and the group adjust to a new life on a narrowboat, in search of a safe place to spend the impending winter. The boat is safe. The group are closer than ever before. For the first time in weeks, hope and optimism is strong.
But not for long.
A devastating accident strikes.
The group are shattered, wounded and disoriented.
And there is something other than the creatures looming on the horizon. Something more dangerous…
Morals are challenged.
New depths are plummeted to.
And harrowing twists lurk around every corner…
There will be blood. There will be tears. In the Dead Days, nobody is safe.
Dead Days Season One Recap
This is a quick recap of the events of Season One of Dead Days. Feel free to skip it if you don’t need recapping. And of course, be very aware that this recap is absolutely filled to the brim with Season One spoilers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
Riley Jameson returns home from work to find a reanimated corpse of a former flatmate in the car park of his flat block. His friend, Ted, agrees to leave the flat with Riley in order to locate Riley’s grandmother, who Riley fears for after hearing of the wider spread of what appears to be a zombie-like infection.
The pair battle their way out of the flats, meeting a woman called Jordanna on their way. However, they are forced to leave Jordanna behind as they head to Riley’s grandma’s, which leaves Riley filled with guilt.
Riley and Ted arrive at Riley’s grandmother’s to find that she has been bitten and turned into a “creature.” Riley shoots his grandmother, but the house is soon after overrun. The pair flee, but Ted is injured on a piece of sharp glass, so they are forced to search for a chemist of some kind for bandages and medical equipment.
The two of them find a chemist but are intercepted by a new group, made up of Anna, Stan and his wife Jill, Trevor, Claudia, and her two daughters Chloë and Elizabeth. They are holed up in a Chinese takeaway restaurant. Some of the group heads out to a supermarket to salvage some supplies, but upon return, Riley discovers that a flu-ridden Jill has turned into a creature.
Somebody kills Jill. Stan goes insane and blames Riley, before walking out on the Chinese takeaway. Anna confesses that, as a former nurse, she suspects that a tampered flu vaccine may have started the creature outbreak. Riley tracks Stan to an old farmhouse where the pair are captured and prepared for execution by two other men. However, after a bloody escape that costs Stan and the other two men their lives, Riley flees the farmhouse instead of trying to help, leaving him even more guilty.
Upon his return, where Chloë has confessed to killing Jill’s reanimated corpse, the Chinese restaurant is overthrown and the group are forced to leave. Trevor loses his life in this departure, which leaves the group heading down some train tracks. The following day, a speeding train and a herd of creatures sees disaster strike once again as Elizabeth loses her life. But a mysterious armed group from the Fulwood Barracks led by Ivan and Pedro takes them all in.
All is well at the Fulwood Barracks for a couple of weeks until Riley discovers that Ivan is freezing people for a backup food supply. Tensions flare, fighting breaks out, and Riley’s best friend and closest companion, Ted, is executed by Ivan in the chaos.
The barracks are overrun by creatures and everyone must fight for survival. Riley and Pedro, who has decided to join with Riley after growing tired of Ivan’s insanity, find the rest of the group in an abandoned house across the road. The following day, Pedro carries Chloë to Ivan, who is waiting in a armoured vehicle nearby, and Chloë knocks Ivan out using a chloroform blanket. Riley locks Ivan up in the freezer room of the barracks where the human bodies are stored and leaves him to die.
The group finds a boat that Pedro’s grandma had stocked up by the docks. As they set sail up the River Ribble, no clear destination in sight, Claudia throws the ashes of Elizabeth into the water, and Riley throws the ashes of Ted, leaving their home of Preston behind once and for all…
