Bitten 3 : Kingdom of the Living Dead brings together the characters of Bitten Resurrection and Bitten 2 Land of the Rising Dead for one frightening zombie filled epic.
Rachael Ramirez is in search of the origins of the Resurrection Virus and her journey takes her to far away Japan, where she meets a precarious young Japanese girl, Saeko Sakaguchi, with similar abilities as her.
Together the two women look for answers to who, or what, is behind the contagion. But before they can investigate the matter to any satisfaction, the head of the Yakuza, Ijin Gen aka "Gen the Barbarian", decides to slaughter half of the population of the last human settlement, Aokigahara village, in a show of power.
Taking things personally, Saeko swears vengeance, and Rachael decides to guide the young woman and teach her how to unlock the true potential of the mysterious powers given to them by the Resurrection Virus.
The only question is, will two super-powered women be enough to take down the entire Yakuza all the while having to fend of a never-ending onslaught of zombies amid the densest and biggest city on the planet?
At the same time, on the other side of the world, Alyssa Briggs and the Cowboy, Gordon Longstaff, and their trustworthy companion Frank, the Pembroke corgi, run into a familiar face. But none of them seem to be too happy about it. Taken prisoner, they are given a simple ultimatum -- either ally themselves with the Blood Queen or be made her play things. The only question is, can they survive her mad, zombie infested, dinner party?
Bitten 3: Kingdom of the Living Dead is the battle filled collision of BITTEN 1 and BITTEN 2 characters and the third installment in the Resurrection Virus Saga. It's a character driven, survival-horror, story for adults. The squeamish need not apply. 67,000 words.
