From the Press Release:
With three more novels to follow in the series, including Ex-Patriots (April 23, 2013) and Ex-Communication (July 9, 2013), Ex-Heroes is sure to appeal to fans of such hits as Watchmen, World War Z, and Ready Player One.
In Ex-Heroes it’s zombies versus superheroes—a face-off we’ve never seen before—complete with a cast of fresh, interestingly flawed new heroes that will appeal to even the most jaded comic book fans and horror junkies. Los Angeles has been devastated by the zombie apocalypse, devoid of human life—except for one last stronghold, the film-studio-turned-fortress known as the "Mount."
Protecting the city’s last survivors who are huddled within the walls of the Mount are the superheroes Stealth, Gorgon, Regenerator, Cerberus, Zzzap, and The Mighty Dragon. Terrified by the overwhelming responsibility of protecting what may be the last members of the human race and scarred by the horrors they’ve endured, the heroes struggle to hold back the zombie hordes, keep the Mount’s inhabitants alive, and be the symbols of hope the survivors so desperately need. But the heroes are about to learn that the zombies are the least of the threats they now face. Former heroes, their psyches and powers hideously twisted, lurk in the city’s ruins... and just a few miles away from the Mount’s walls waits an enemy with the most terrifying ability imaginable.
Clines, who worked in the film and television industry for fifteen years, has crafted a summer blockbuster in book form, delivering remarkably cinematic action scenes, innovative new heroes and powers, masterful thriller plotting, and character relationships that will engross any reader looking for smart, genuinely page-turning adventure fiction.
