When Knight Alaric von Mertz loses his family to a ravenous zombie horde, he swears revenge on the necromancer responsible. But a quest forvengeance is no easy matter in a world overrun by the walking dead. Joined by a sharp-tongued rogue, a witch hunter with secret knowledge, a novice wizard, and a dwarfdemolition master, Alaric’s journey leads him from magical fire moats to the zombie-ridden catacombs of the witch hunters to uncover a spell book of insurmountable power. As zombies claw and bite, Alaric fears he will never avenge his family. For in this age of the undead, betrayal and magic lurk around every corner, spelling either doom or salvation for them all.

Raves and Reviews

“A non-stop thrill-ride from the first chapter, full of brave deeds, grim horrors, and dark sorceries. Werner delivers again!”

– Howard Andrew Jones, acclaimed author of the Ring-Sworn trilogy

"C.L. Werner delivers a rollicking tale with all the zombie mayhem we could want, turning the traditional fantasy setting upside down, and giving us a group of characters a fractious as they are loveable."

– David Annandale, Black Library Author

"Age of the Undead is an atmospheric, blood-soaked & action-packed zombie-fest from C.L. Werner that perfectly meshes with the Zombicide: Black Plague setting, and demonstrates why Werner is such a prolific and popular author."

– Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer

"Werner is no stranger to fantasy world, having written books set within the Warhammer universe, and you can really see that experience coming through here. He knows how to make a world that feels lived in and real (even if it's currently in ruin), and is able to make the action jump off the page thanks to precise, descriptive language."
