Peter Welmerink: Transport Blog Tour

About the author: Peter Welmerink was born and raised on the west side of pre-apocalyptic Grand Rapids, Michigan. He writes Fantasy, Military SciFi, and other wanderings into action-adventure. His work has been published in ye olde wood pulp print and electronic-online publications. He is the co-author of the Viking berserker novel, BEDLAM UNLEASHED, written with Steven Shrewsbury. TRANSPORT is his first solo novel venture. He is married with a small barbarian tribe of three boys.

Book Synopsis for Transport: The HURON, a 72-ton heavy transport vehicle and an army of four; tracked, racked and ready to roll, to serve and protect the walled metropolis of Grand Rapids—both her living and her undead. Captain Jacob Billet and his crew patrol the byways, ready for trouble.

William Lettner, the North Shore Coalition High Commissioner, has enemies from the mainland to the lakeshore and needs to be covertly transported home after his helicopter is shot down en route to Grand Rapids. He has no love for a city that give unliving civilians the right to survive. Lettner’s venomous outbursts assaults Billet and his crew along every mile travelled as they are assigned to safely bring him through the treacherous landscape outside the city back to his hometown.

The HURON and her crew will have to face domesticated zombies and the feral undead; marauders holding strategic chokepoints hostage; barricaded villages fighting for survival, and a group of geneticists who've lost control of one of their monstrous experiments if they want to complete their mission.

The crew will need to stay strong and trust one another in order to finish the mission and bring their “precious” cargo home, even knowing, all the while, the terrible deeds Lettner has done.

Travelling through West Michigan was never so dangerous.

My Thoughts:

I was curious about this one, Zombies are all the rage but I was pleasantly pleased with this book. It was not at all your typical zombie story. It was fast paced, intense, awesome characters and a great plot.  I really enjoyed this book, I think it would appeal to anyone who loves Zombie tales as well as horror fans. I think it will also appeal to people who like apocalyptic tales.  I am very impressed with the caliber of the writing in this one. Well Done!

My Rating: 4 out of  5

Transport has a great cover done by Jason Conley. The two interior illustrations are done by artist Tim Holtrop. And I absolutely love the interior illustrations, they are amazing. They remind me of comic book illustrations. Top Notch.
