ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! ACAPULCALYPSE NOW

PrintE-mail Written by Leona Turford

For some of the world’s wealthiest elite, their all-exclusive holiday to the mysterious new Hotel Baktun will turn out to be one of their most eventful occasions yet - that is for those that manage to make it out alive without being munched on by a swarm of zombies. Yes, it's certainly going zombie-loco down in Acapulco!

In the latest addition to author Stephen Jones’ Zombie Apocalypse! series, Acapulcalypse Now sees another horde of the undead swarm upon the sunny retreat of Acapulco for an all -nclusive holiday that it's guests certainly won't be forgetting in a hurry.

Who'd have thought that a humble new hotel with a Mayan pyramid as its centrepiece would turn out to be so cursed. In an entertaining twist on the Zombie Apocalypse! series, the mysterious new Hotel Baktun is set to be the future home for the undead, drawn in by more than just the delicious walking meals inside.

Acapucalypse Now follows the guests as they fight for survival against the undead hordes, trying to find out just what's bringing the dead back to life, from the unfortunate security guard Stacey Keenan who finds herself thrown into much more than she bargained for as she fights off the reanimated guests, to the stowaways from the nearby Russian cruise ship, and the unfortunate competition winners, as each and every one of them struggles to fight against not just the zombie hordes, but the mysterious mystical events that start unearthing around their new environment.

A great new take on the classic zombie plotline with plenty of unexpected twists and turns along the way, as it draws in influences from Mayan culture making for an unusual and surprising take on this tale of survival against the undead. An amusing read that's a great addition to the Zombie Apocalypse! series, whether you prefer your zombies slow paced or fast and a little too hungry for human flesh, you'll certainly find it an entertaining read, and you may find yourself wanting to stay away from any mysterious new buildings for some time afterwards!
