About the Book

'Growlers is different in several ways from the average zombie apocalypse story. First, it's set in the Balkans, second, there are no preppers involved and third, they are no military experts and only one pistol!'

It begins with random reports of a new flu virus...


What should have been a relaxing winter vacation in a small town with the family turns into a hopeless situation.

It spreads quickly


Andrei, Lili, their seven-year-old son and Lili’s parents soon understand that the blackout was just the beginning. A mysterious disease turns everybody else into growling monsters and now they must fight for their lives. There's no power, no cell phone signal, no food supplies and it's the middle of the winter. Roads are covered in snow and there's nowhere to go.

Silence. Growling. Silence.


I Am Legend meets The Walking Dead in this horror-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. All mixed with a healthy dose of humor. Set in the Balkans, this is not your typical zombie story. A nerdy dad, a brave mom, an ex-cop grandfather, a caring grandmother and a young boy desperately try survive and figure out whether they are the only ones left.

Will they make it?

The family struggles to find food, shelter, much needed medicine and to stay alive in the process. But why do they seem to be immune? And if one gets sick, will the others be able to find a cure? All while being hunted by growling creatures and packs of stray dogs. What makes these zombie-like abominations tick? Can they be defeated?

Every decision, any move, could mean a terrible death.

This is more than a scary book with zombies, and it will make you keep wondering: 'What would I do?'

Although meant to be part of a series, Growlers can be read as a standalone.

'There is an emphasis on suspense and the fear experienced by the characters. Well worth a read.' - Amazon Reviewer

'These people aren't by any stretch of the imagination preppers or even people who have a pantry. If you want to read something that is both light and heavy, give this a go.' - Amazon Reviewer

'Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. The characters are believable, the writing is clear, concise and action packed. A must read for zombie book fans.' - Amazon Reviewer

'Action filled zombie apocalypse tale!' – Amazon Reviewer
