Based on the terrifying new video game, a novel of the zombie apocalypse Welcome to Banoi, a tropical island where you can leave the stresses of the world behind. The Royal Palms Resort offers its guests from around the world the ultimate in luxury and relaxation, a holiday paradise where your dreams should come true—but where a nightmare is about to begin. A mysterious epidemic has suddenly, and without warning, broken out across the island. The local islanders, hotel guests, and workers alike are struck down—only to rise again, craving the flesh and the blood of the still living. For four of the vacationers and a handful of others scattered around Banoi who are seemingly unaffected by the plague, they must face the awful, terrifying reality of a zombie apocalypse. Now there is only one thing left to do: survive. Welcome to Dead Island—a paradise to die for.
