Dark Realms Magazine has a review for Rise and Walk in their issue number 29. Here is an excerpt from the article written by Russell Williams. Rise & Walk is an expertly crafted tale of zombie horror with several jolting twists. The story quickly establishes the fact that no one is exempt from the savage wrath of the frenzied undead, keeping readers in suspense as to whom, if anyone will survive. Gregory Solis puts his own entertaining spin on a familiar horror premise and pulls it together very nicely. Recommended. My humble thanks go out to Dark Realms and Mr. Williams for the review.

What you may not know is that Permuted used a review I once did of Bourne's fantastic novel as a blerb on the front page. The Permuted edition is now in stock at Borders books. Congratulations are due to Bourne and Permuted for their success.
