Dead Team Alpha Series


In the post-apocalyptic, zombie infested wasteland, there is one beacon of safety in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains: The Stronghold.
For decades, the inhabitants have fortified and defended the Stronghold from zombie hordes, building their society and culture on military precision.
And chosen from the best of the best is Denver Team Alpha. DTA is the elite strike force used to rescue survivors and refugees that have made it to the hellish wasteland of Denver below. But because of the unbelievable risks, and high mortality rate, DTA has come to stand for something else: Dead Team Alpha.
Now DTA will be put to the test as something far worse than zombies comes at them out of the wasteland.

2015-11-26 20.04.23The Stronghold.
A fortified survivor pocket tucked into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the former Boulder, Colorado. A culture based on military training and strength, the Stronghold is now the last bastion for the living. For nearly a century the Stronghold has thrived, rebuilding a small slice of civilization in the midst of a zombie infested wasteland.
But that is all about to change.
The pride of the Stronghold, Dead Team Alpha, the elite strike force that helps keep not just the Zs, but crazies, cannibals, and cults from overrunning the walled sanctuary, is being put to the ultimate test- banding together with one of the community’s most deadly enemies in order for all of humanity to survive.
Why would DTA need to put its trust in a crazy cult that almost killed them all? Because the Z herds are not lessening, they are getting bigger and stronger!
It is a race against time, as DTA struggles to defend the Stronghold from the millions of undead that march towards them, hungry for the last bits of living flesh left in a land that is nothing but death for as far as the eyes can see!


    Jake, I finished this book and I loved it. Would like to see more, but the ending? Spoiler Alert***** I have a question about the ending. Leave now and just know that I think this an awesome zombie thriller.


    My question is: Did Skye really make off with the Authorization Codes? Then no follow-up, except where it comes out the Cmdr Lee had the missles fixed and ready to launch? After all that fighting and over 600 people killed, the crazy ones get what they want? The capability to totally end life on earth. Was that not the point of the whole story? Stopping the crazy ones? Did I miss something?

    P.S. I found one small editorial mistake: around location 4756, Val’s father is saying (about her mom): “She was exposed to too much radiatiion when she was pregnant with you brother”. Shouldn’t that last you be a “your”? As in “with your brother”.

    • Hey, David!

      Thanks for the comment and also pointing out there are SPOILERS in it. I’ll pass the typo on to my publisher. I’m sure they’ll appreciate that and be able to get it fixed ASAP.

      As for your questions, there is one very, very easy answer. But I won’t post it here since I hate spoilers. And I want folks to buy the novel. What I will say is that’s what sequels are for! DTA is a planned series, so this saga will play out over a couple more novels. All shall be answered and resolved! 🙂

      Thanks again for posting!


  2. How many people died during the attacks? With the Teams, the sentries, reclamation crews, the final battles, what was the death toll at the end of the book? I read there were 3000 people at the Stronghold, and after it all, they have to have been hurt badly. Did you have any idea in your head on the casualty number?

  3. Hey Jake really enjoying your work. Keep it up. Having spent the last year binging on everything “Z” it was an interesting thing to enter a story 100 years after the fall in “Dead Team Alpha”. Thanks You got me hooked and I will be reading everything you produce. Also “Bethany and the Zombie Jesus” was a great ride. Thanks again.

  4. Z-burbia was a great series and after reading the last book I can now see the connection between z-burbia and DTA which is rather cool because of the kids which I had no idea until this last book!!! Great job and I’m reading DTA again thank and I can’t wait until you fill in the blanks with jace dying and how Charlie died and what Elisabeth was doing between looking for Kramer and Greta dying. Thanks again great series! When does The DTA come out?

  5. Ok when does the new DTA book come out? And does DTA have any ties to z-buria? I finished the last z-burbia book and I can see that can have the same background.

    when are the audio books for dead team alpha 2 and z burbia 7 coming out?

  7. Natan Hagopian

    I have to say that I love the z burbia series as well as the dead mech. What I’m curious about is at what time cram does the deadteam alpha series play into the Zuburbia and dead mech time line?

You got two cents? Then put them here! (That means feel free to comment)
