Jeremy Bishop's first pulse-pounding novel is a horrific tale of post-apocalyptic terror that is one part zombie story and one part Dante's Inferno. The story asks hard questions and generates strong emotions in everyone who reads it - anger, excitement, and most of all: FEAR. This book asks the question that everyone is afraid to answer: Are you ready?


Small town reporter, Mia Durante, finds herself having brunch with the President of the United States on the day civilization comes to an end. An electromagnetic pulse blinds the U.S. Cars crash. Planes fall. Chaos reigns. Power is restored within minutes, but it's already too late. Russian nukes are falling. U.S. allies around the world are all ready wiped out. The United States will cease to exist inside of five minutes.

After giving the order to launch a full-scale retaliation, dooming the planet, the president, White House staff, Secret Service, and those lucky enough to be visiting the white house, are whisked below ground where they board several Earth Escape Pods. As the EEPs launch into Earth orbit, missiles descend.

Less than 40 survive the end of the world. When they return, they're greeted by survivors of a different sort. The bloodbath that follows leaves Durante and nine other survivors on the run. They find themselves fighting for survival in a world in which only torment remains and where death is the only escape.

    " Wow! I was not excepting that. I thought this book was about zombies but it is about end of days kind of stuff. The author states that this is not a christian book but it actually is a christian book. I absolutly loved the book. Russia launches nukes. America launches in return. Everyone is about to die except for a few lucky people that are with the president. They are launched into space on escape pods. When they return to Earth things are definitly not what they expected. This is a super fast paced book that is non-stop from begining to end. "

    " What a disappointment. The first half, it was headed for 5 stars. Then it got weird. And not in a good way. The final third, I got through out of sheer stubbornness. It got too "theological," when it wasn't just run-run-run. And the ending? Really? Shame, because it had so much going for it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Biondi | 2/3/2014

    " I found out about this book when the author followed me on Twitter. I didn't recognize him so I went to his page and found out he was an author. This lead me to amazon where I saw his book "Torment" and read the little blurb. The book was only 2.99 for the kindle so I figured what the heck I'll give it a shot. I don't like to give a lot of spoilers when I give reviews so you'll just have to trust me when I say this book is really good. Torment is a very fast paced book that you won't be able to put down. There's something for horror fans, zombie fans, and people who like post apocalypse with some nuclear fallout added to the mix. So if any of these things sounds like it might be your cup of tea give this book a shot you won't regret it. "

    " A fast-paced apocalyptic story that kept me wondering. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 TJ | 1/29/2014

    " The first third of this book is a whirlwind that's difficult to put down. It's unfortunate that the last 2/3rds of the book didn't provide the same excitement, as least for me. "Torment" is not your typical zombie yarn. It has a little bit of everything including a great hook to get the reader to those aforementioned zombies. Without giving too much away, let me just say that the reader is in for a pretty wild ride accompanying a small band of citizens who struggle to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic USA. Author Jeremy Bishop does a nice job introducing characters, but doesn't go out of his way fleshing them out. This novel is recommended to those who enjoy a decent zombie story, but not one that will be particularly memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/26/2014

    " If you like the show walking dead read this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 1/21/2014

    " One of the best things about reading is finding those few gems, books that catch you off-guard and blow you away. This is one of those books. The action starts early on and just never lets up, this is truly a "can't put it down" book. At first I was simply amused and entertained by (what I was calling) the "apologetic zombies" but as the book went on I realized there was much more to it than that. I stayed up way too late reading this on more than one night, and didn't want it to end. The ending itself is quite awesome too. Will be eagerly looking forward to more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Esmont | 1/20/2014

    " Nice twist on the stock zombie theme. This story started with a bang - literally, and never let up from there. I struggled with the paranormal aspect at first, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith Reynal | 1/4/2014

    " It's like seeing a bad wreck - fascinating and horrifying at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 12/23/2013

    " It wasn't bad. The whole theological aspect didn't bother me as it has others. I didn't focus on it, I thought it was an interesting theme actually. I would like to read more about this world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 12/16/2013

    " Very disappointing. This book started out with a lot of possibility. I could have been a fun and exciting post-nuclear survival novel. But it really falls flat. The book becomes long and drawn out and kind of preachy. No fun was had reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 12/14/2013

    " Don't know why it is called A Novel of Dark 'Horror'. I actually would call it something like A Novel of Dying without being Ready or having Christ in your life... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 12/6/2013

    " This one was a good book. Very captivating and .. at least for me.. the ending was very unexpected! It was different than what I had expected no doubt about it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 11/25/2013

    " It was only $2.99 on Kindle, but the reviews were pretty good, so I bought it and read it. Read like a good zombie demon movie. Interesting, unique storyline. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Abe | 7/5/2013

    " Worst book ever. Zero stars for misleading. Post apocalyptic horror is NOT the same as religious nonsense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 6/20/2013

    " Strange book, strange concepts, strange ending. I didn't get it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Dow | 12/26/2012

    " I like - interesting and thought-provoking. Oh, and gross. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Bundren | 12/20/2012

    " This book keep me engrossed the entire time. I couldn't put the book down. I felt it lost a little steam in the end but it was still very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee Haddrill | 11/13/2012

    " I really enjoyed this right up to the very end. I didn't like the ending! Not that it wasn't well-written, the end just wasn't to my liking. But its a very good post-apocalytpic read, and very much in the vein of Stephen King. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila K | 11/9/2012

    " Great different story of the end of the world, I devoured the book in less than two days. I'm looking forward to more books by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 10/19/2012

    " This was actually a really fun and interesting take on the end of the world. It's probably more of a 3.5 than a 3. The writing isn't going to win any literary awards, but the story still kept me fully engaged (and reading late into the night) and the characters had me rooting for them. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jami | 7/30/2012

    " My advice is don't bother with this end of the world, predictable zombie book. It wasn't worth my time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenni | 5/1/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book, very video gameish. Very outlandish but right up my alley for when I need an escape from reality and a good scare. Great visuals. Thanks Jeremy Bishop. "
