If you’re looking for ways to get your zombie fix while waiting for the next episode of The Walking Dead, then you should check out some of the free zombie novels listed below. At the time of writing this, all of the zombie books in the list were available for free download from Amazon. However, prices can change at anytime, so be sure to check the current price before you download any of these cool zombie books.
1. Affliction Z: Patient Zero
Normally a thriller writer more known for his Jack Noble series, the author delivers a pretty exciting zombie thriller with this book. Instead of focusing just on the average person, this one focuses more on some members of the military.
This is the first book in a series, so there’s more for you to read once you finish this one up. You can also follow the author on Twitter for book updates.
2. Zombie Fallout
I’ve gotta say – the cover of this book caught my attention immediately. It doesn’t look like your standard zombie book. Instead, it looks like a kickass awesome zombie book with lots of cool action.
I like that the main characters are just your normal, every day, average people – but with a twist – the main guy is a survivalist. So, that’s pretty cool. Also note that this is the first book in a series, which means a few other books are available to read after you finish this one. You can also follow the author on Twitter for book updates.
3. The North – A Post-Apocalyptic Novel (Plan Z Book 1)
This is another book cover that immediately caught my attention when looking for new zombie books. But after reading the blurb for it, I was even more intrigued because the main character seems to be a 16-year-old boy.
If you’re interested in a young adult post-apocalyptic zombie thriller, then this one is a good place to start. And, it’s part of a series so you can fill up your Kindle with more of these books if you enjoy this one. Or, follow the author on Twitter for more updates.
4. The Last: A Zombie Novel
Again, the cover is what drew me to this book, but for a different reason. I’m not sure if the author intended it (since I haven’t read the book yet), but doesn’t that look like Chuck Norris in the middle of those zombies on the book cover? Cracks me up.
This book is billed as being unlike any other zombie book out there. I haven’t read it yet, but if you have then I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts.
This book does not appear to be part of a series, but you can follow the author on Twitter for book updates.
5. The Wasteland Chronicles: Omnibus Edition
Want three books in one – and all for free? Then definitely download this one while it’s free! You get the first three books of the Wasteland Chronicles series in this omnibus edition.
I have not yet read this book, but I’ve downloaded it to my Kindle to check out when I have a chance. The series has great reviews and once you finish this, there are even more books in the series for you to read. You find find the author on Twitter, but note that he doesn’t seem to be very active on there.
6. LZR-1143: Infection
This book was released a few years ago, but it’s still a good freebie zombie book for your Kindle if you haven’t already read it.
And if you’re looking for a zombie book series, then you can read other novels in this same series once you’re done with this one. For updates from the author, follow him on Twitter.
7. The Zombie Chronicles – Book 1
This is another young adult zombie book that might interest some readers. I have not read it, and honestly, it does have some bad reviews. However, everyone likes something different so you still might want to check it out.
It is part of a series, so if you enjoy it there are other books you can read after it. The author shares book updates on Twitter, but note that she seems to be writing in a different genre these days.
8. End (The Dying of the Light Book 1)
This is probably the longest free zombie book that I’ve come across in my searches. Though I haven’t read it, I do know that it seems to focus on some average people as well as some military action in a zombie apocalypse.
You can find more books in the series, if you end up enjoying this one. The author is also on Twitter if you want to follow him for book updates.
9. Virus Z: Breakout – Episode 1
Do you prefer reading short books on your lunch breaks or other breaks? Then you might be interested in this short zombie book. It is the first episode in a zombie serial, so you’ve got other books (episodes) to read after you finish up this one.
I haven’t read this or any of the books from the series, but I would still suggest checking them out if you have limited time for reading.
10. Blood Memory: A Zombie Apocalypse Series (Episode One)
This one is also a short series that’s perfect for breaks and time on public transportation. But it’s a bit different because it’s more of a horror thriller type of zombie book, which can be a fun read.
It is part of a series, which leaves you with more to read once you’re done. In fact, the entire season one is available for downloading.I haven’t read this one either, but is seems like a really cool read.
11. After the Cure
This book is completely unique compared to the others on this list. Sure, there’s zombies but it more about the after instead of the breakout. You get to see this author’s vision of what happens after a zombie outbreak gets a cure. Definitely a cool premise.
Plus, this is the first book in a series, which means plenty more books to read once you finish up this one. And if you want updates on future books, just follow the author on Twitter.
