BLURB:

After Monsterland has imploded, the entire world is thrown into chaos. 
World leadership is gone, economies have collapsed, and communications are non-existent. 
Wyatt must go beyond the boundaries of his small town to reestablish contact with the outside world, 
and alert the government about a traitor-in-chief.

During his journey he discovers a new threat released from the bowels of the defunct theme park.

When an army of relentless mummies, a life-sucking ooze called The Glob, and a hybrid reanimated 
Behemoth rise from the depths of Monsterland, who will survive?

EXCERPT

A new, larger outline made his heart quiver with fear. It crouched in a corner, 
its snout covered with blood. This one was bigger, not a coyote, a wild wolf. 
Wait, he thought. Weren’t the gray wolves of California all but extinct?

Igor narrowed his eyes. The beast was a light reddish brown and not the silver gray of a wolf ’s pelt. 
A chain hung from its neck, the pendant of a werewolf ’s head dangling, emerald eyes flashing. 
What was it? Was it a mutant coyote? A wolf? Some weird hybrid, he wondered for a minute, 
his breath harsh in his ears. They watched each other soundlessly.

A hybrid then. He’d heard about them, a rare mixture of wolf and coyote. What did they call them? 
Coywolves …? or was it Woyotes?  He shrugged indifferently. Perhaps someone’s pet, he decided. 
Igor’s mirthless laugh came out like a snort.

The coywolf stood still, its ears alert, its head cocked as if it was observing him.

Igor dropped the makeshift weapon, calling out, “Eat the rest of your meal, you dumb beast.”

The animal continued to watch him, its two front paws on the remains of a zombie’s chest.

Igor wiped his forehead, waiting, his eyes coming back to search the village, confirming it was empty, 
except for the carrion eaters like the coyotes and vultures. He looked up, noting the circling predators 
waiting for him to move on.

“Interrupted your meal,” he chuckled. Just the local scavengers looking for food. 
That was all; the shadows revealed nothing else. Satisfied he was alone, he moved on. 
He had work to do.

A paper flew past him, hitting a kiosk as the wind plastered it against its surface. 
It flapped like a dying bird. Igor reached over, taking the fluttering paper, peering at the map of the park, 
the  one they gave people as they entered Monsterland. A bark of laughter escaped his mouth.

He looked up at the giant monolith that was once the Werewolf River Run, 
its hulking shape obscuring the horizon. “You are here,” he giggled, pointing a grimy finger on the 
paper’s surface. He dragged his deformed body further down the pavement. 
The storefronts that used to be Monsterland’s Main Street yawned vacantly, the wind whistling through 
the narrow alley- ways. “Now, you are here,” he laughed. 
Shouting, he listened to the sound of his voice bouncing off the blood-splattered walls.
