The General's Daughter: Red Dirt #Zombies 4

 Today we welcome Michael Peirce, author of The General's Daughter,  the fourth novel in the world of the “Red Dirt Zombies” series.

About the Book:
 Governor Vera Selvedge of Georgia was elected as a libertarian and found herself a virtual War Lord. She is holding it all together, but so many have died, or been maimed under her orders in this the First Z-War. Even more men and women have succumbed to the insanity and PTSD. Jane Miniver of the Governor’s Protection Unit, the controversial GPU, has opened talks with the Tennessee Militia. This militia includes a young woman who is “The General’s Daughter,” and Georgia’s senior general.

 Could the tragedies that devastate “Captain Alice” be assuaged by the attentions of the PTSD ridden Alabama Major Dawson Sanders? Can enough of the troops remain sane long enough to get the job done and establish the exclusion area to be designated the “Q-Zone?” 

Excerpt: The Road to Vicksburg
 “Texas Jace Newland, Colonel Alice McBride and General John Mosby stood on the ridge overlooking the Mississippi River.

They had fought the battle that had to be fought. Georgia had to have petrol; Texas had to have their Georgia allies. It had to have been worth it, worth the cost of the dead.

 Somehow, it didn’t feel that way. Their faces were blank as they watched the Texas engineer troops working to open the massive bridge across the Mississippi River. A boat approached from the Texas side, carrying the commander of 1st Cavalry Division, a former US Army outfit. His face was as solemn as those of his Georgia allies. The Texans too had paid a price.”
