It would be unfair not to mention that this author and I do not have a positive relationship. That is why I waited a considerable length of time before buying (at least I get points for that), reading, and reviewing this book. Oddly enough, I have heard accusations that I reviewed this book under an alias. Good or bad, I ALWAYS review under my name. A review is simply one individual's opinion. So, with that disclosure done, on to the book.

I have the most recent edition with the re-edits, but it

I saw a post on a Facebook group I belong to from the author offering this title for free for a limited time and decided to grab it and I'm glad I did.

Dead Nations Army is a though provoking book, with strong ties into current worldwide issues as well having a new enemy to mankind. In addition to hunger, poverty and the effects of greed comes something we can usually only see in our nightmares.

A really enjoyable read and I look forward to book 2.

Thank you to Alan for making his book available, a

I've been tracking the making of this book since it was just an idea floating around in Alan's head, chatting for hours over the phone during my night shift, exploring names for the characters and such. Despite my faith in Alan's epic ability to paint a vivid picture in my mind's eye and his grasp on political/social controversy, never would I have imagined how deeply he would penetrate my self awareness and where I (we) fit in the grand scheme of life and current times. You don't have to be an ...more

I don’t normally review self-published works here at Shattered Ravings, but when I read the plot synopsis for CODE FLESH, I decided to make an exception. I am always intrigued by new zombie concepts, especially those from first-time authors; this book is no different. With CODE FLESH, author Alan Dale gives us a unique and vicious look into a horrific future.

I have to confess up front: I enjoyed this book for the most part however there are a few issues with it. This is very understandable thoug

Alan Dale's DNA: Code Flesh opens with a bang! From the moment the reader first opens the book, they are thrown into a world a chaos and war with enough undead action to satisfy any zombie fan. Alan's vivid descriptions help the reader envision every second of the gory carnage happening throughout the pages. Around the middle of the book we get into the back story of our main characters, Bridjett and Shad Alexi, and a history lesson of the world as they know it from their drunken father, Norman. ...more

My Friend Alan Dale WOW what can I say I LOVED it I finished it in an afternoon couldn't put it down Your political views are AMAZING!! The Book is DNA:Code Flesh Intrigued me from the first words, I'm more of a Ghost story lover than Zombies but WOW the way Alan Spins this Dark tale I don't know if I am more afraid of Our World Creating monsters like this or the NWO (New World Order) That allows it to happen, His Character Of Norman Alexi ( a secondary Character but so pivotal to the story) Wi ...more

Alan Dale's 'Dead Nation's Army: Book 1 - Code Flesh' reads like a global revolutionary manifesto. It's a solid zombie apocalypse story, but also makes a strong statement about the current ruling status quo and how a zombie apocalypse would affect both the 1%ers and the 99%.

There is a poetry to Dale's style that accentuates the story, in my opinion. His prose is almost like free-verse, and there's an efficiency to his words that borders on fanatical. He's like a beatnik George Romero who listene

Review: A superb apocalyptic zombie novel with a new twist. It’s finally happened and zombies are all over the world making lunch meat out of humans. These decomposing humans, called Scrats by the living have practically caused the majority of the ‘still living’ to barricade themselves in the safest havens they can find only able to rely to an extent on the grace

I was very shocked at how much I enjoyed this book and was left wanting more from this exciting end of the world zombie tale. I for one am not for zombie books, but I really enjoyed this book. Now those who are into the whole Zombie Apocalypse will find this book amazingly probable and be drawn into the story from beginning to end. The Dead Nations Army(DNA)are the good guys trying to help the humans by hiding them away from the Scrats(Zombies)in havens or safe houses. Now you can't have the goo ...more

Not a huge zombie fan, but I am a huge horror fan. I also am a fan of stylistic writing. Alan Dale definitely has some style. In your face, lots of repetition. The action scenes read quickly. I enjoyed the originality of the NWO utopian societies. The book also had the proper amount of gore, fighting, death and flesh for a good zombie novel. I also liked the strong female lead Bridjitt and the relationship she has with her brother Shad. An interesting post-zombie apocalyptic society.

Ok granted i did get a preview copy thanks to Alan, but holy hell was it a good book.

I URGE you, yes you and you and you and you and you, to read it!!!

Zombies, political stance, great characters.

Dead nation army are like the surviving "rebels" to New World Order's "empire" with a brother and sister torn apart on both sides.

Such a fun read, sit back and enjoy and then beg Alan for book 2

I didn't quite know what to make of this at the beginning, but it pulled me in enough to keep on reading.

This is not exactly your regular zombie novel. Yes, it has the flesh-eating monsters we've come to expect, but what makes this different is the world that Alan Dale has placed his novel in.

Without giving away spoilers, the way the zombies come to be in this novel is different, but better than that, is the sneaky sub-plots that run alongside. The strong female lead, the brother/sister dynamic,

This book makes me sad inside. I may not be horror's biggest fan, but I'm totally bummed I wasted $4.99 for this...whatever it is. It's not literature; it's not pulp horror; it's just bad bad bad writing. =(
