Phil, Tim, and Dakota are three survivors taking refuge in Atlanta, Georgia. The year is 2027, ten years after a nuclear fallout decimated the known world and left it in shambles. With hordes of the undead flooding their once safe home and a city now depleted of all resources and supplies the three must make a daring gamble. To trek across the States and Canada, looking for a new place to call home; safe from the monsters that plague the lands.
In their daring gamble this trio encounters more than just zombies. They are relentlessly pursued and hunted by both an old and new nemesis’. Trying to survive and stick together, no matter the odds, they must rely on their faith, bond, and past experiences to live through their tribulations. In this world, a fool’s chance is usually their only chance.

“Weeks is one of those books that leaves you yearning for more; desperately wanting
to know what happens next and to whom. I must confess it wasn’t the story I anticipated when I began reading it but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! Yes, I knew going in it was a zombie apocalyptic story and it does indeed have zombies and is totally apocalyptic but I found it to have a deeper meaning than just what another zombie story would. I felt like I had gotten my cake and was able to eat it to!
You have three people from different life styles that have come together under extraordinary circumstances combining their spiritual being, muscle, and know how in order to just survive another day! Each day they struggle to stay ahead of the hordes and other dangers all the while in pain, hungry, and fatigued. What kept them alive was their faith and trust in the Lord and themselves.
A favorite quote of mine from the story is:
“Believing something is going to happen when you have no physical proof of it. Faith is blind”
*I was given an advanced copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. “

My book review from The Avid Reader
“WEEKS covers the story and the life of three people, Tim, Dakota and Phil, living in a desolate world ten years after it was destroyed by nuclear fallout. The world is now over run with zombies and other monsters.
The military tried to stop the hordes of zombies from taking over the world by creating a weapon that would help in getting rid of the zombies for good but things did not seem to go as planned. Their weapon only succeeded in creating more monsters to fight.
The military wanted to help people survive the radiation by trying to make them more adaptable to the radiation but they only succeeded in making their lives worse by creating monsters that could be considered as more dangerous than the zombies. Well I guess it would be according to how you looked at it as to which was worse.
As their supplies were running low Tim, Dakota and Phil decides that it may be time to leave Atlanta behind and find a new home hopefully with less zombies to worry about.
I love books about zombies, apocalyptic and or post-apocalyptic worlds and was so glad that I lucked up on WEEKS. It didn’t disappoint me in the least as it lived up to the zombie world and then some. It had zombies and more zombies with lots of action fighting said zombies. I think my favorite parts were when they were being chased by hordes of zombies.
Oh and being chased and shot at by the monsters was great too. I could see it all playing out in my head like a movie. The imagines my mind created for the monsters were awesome thanks to the vivid description of each scene.
I can’t wait for Tim, Dakota and Phil’s journey to continue especially with that ending as it left my chin on the floor. I was like what? But I loved it. Now I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of WEEKS book two, soon I hope. I need it now, please.
So, do I recommend WEEKS? Oh you bet I do and highly. One click yourself a copy today but only if you like zombies and life in an apocalyptic world.” – The Avid Reader.
Mr Burgess has granted me permission to qoute his review on my website, thank you!
“I’ve been fascinated with zombies ever since I was a four-year-old and saw the made-for-television movie The Midnight Hour, which had a creepy scene featuring a vampire, a werewolf, and zombies rising from their graves, so it should be a no-brainer to why I wanted to read Weeks (Book One).
Written by fellow Missourian Jasyn T. Turley, Weeks is set in an apocalyptic future where most of the world were either destroyed by nuclear warheads or killed by the damaged ozone layers. However, while their souls have died, their radiation bodies continue to live on in a zombie-like state, dubbed Bio-Radioactive Hostiles. Then there are the Bio-Radioactive Weapons, 52 monsters created by the government that revolted and now run amok.
The story centers around three survivors – Phil, Dakota, and Tim. We first meet the trio in Atlanta, Georgia and due to low resources, they trek across the states to Kansas City, Missouri, where they were hoping to catch a break and find a safe haven. Remember this is a horror science fiction story, so you can probably take a wild guess that things don’t as planned, which results in the trio taking a journey to Canada.
Overall, Weeks is a well-written apocalyptic tale that gives a fresh new life to the overdone zombie genre. The characters are nicely fleshed out and most importantly – likeable. The descriptions throughout the novel are excellent. Lastly, I love that majority of the setting is set in Missouri, which is my home state.” – Billy Burgess
My next review is in from Natalie Alice, thank you so much Natalie!
“I’ve been looking forward to reading this ever since I got a copy but I waited and the wait was not disappointing.
Weeks is a apocalypse book. It features zombies and a deserted world after a nuclear war.
It follows three
teens (edit: adults) as they try and find their way out of Atlanta.
It left me wanting to know what happens and who survives and who doesn’t.
I hope theres more to come from these books.”
