Words of kindness from AWESOME Readers:


I don’t often find an author or book series that I never want the series to end. I have found two before, John Steinbeck and Stephen King were my list before. Now I have three, John Steinbeck, Stephen King, and Jeff Olah! I am listing them in the order they entered my life. I will read anything by them and not be disappointed. Their stories are so real, so captivating, and I am always wishing the book never ends. I am rather picky in what I read and I have been known to read a book over and over and over and over again instead of reading something that doesn’t make me think, pull my heart, and or make me feel as if the characters are life long friends. I am glad I found Jeff Olah, he is a welcome addition to my list of authors I will read whatever he writes ūüôā

– Debbie via Amazon


WOW!!! there are never enough words in the English language to rave about Jeff’s books!! I was never one to read apocalyptic books until I read the first book Mr. Olah wrote and I was immediately hooked, he is THAT good.

Just finished Jeff Olah’s “The Dead Years – Vol. 5”! All I can say is WOW Jeff!!! You are really getting better with each new installment!! I love it! It is really a joy to see a new author develop so wonderfully right before your eyes; especially one like Jeff. You are a truly an amazing person as well as writer. This episode was terrific! I like how you are fleshing out the characters with flashbacks. You even had me feeling a tiny bit of hope for Justin. Keep it up Jeff; it’s a fabulous story and I am eagerly waiting for #6!!

One of the best zombie series I’ve ever read. The characters are so well developed as the series continues, and believable too. Fast paced and thrilling!

– Mary Martinson via Amazon


I can’t begin to say how disappointed I was when these books came to an end. Mr Olah truly portrays the fragile emotional side of what this group is going through without becoming a bore and entwines it with survival and how they go about it . He doesn’t spend pages upon pages in detail and recaps for which I have the deepest respect and have placed him on my shortlist of favorites authors.¬†Thanks Mr Olah. Truly remarkable series and I hope to read many more books of “Dead Years” in the coming future.

– Amy Thornton via Amazon


This series of books is a must read for fans of the genre. Jeff weaves fantastic stories of survival during the zombie apocalypse with characters that are true to life. They could be you or somebody you know that have to make spot on decisions that mean life or death in the tragic circumstances they face. No series of books that I have read are as heartfelt or exciting as the world Jeff creates. Zombies being the primary monsters in the book sometimes take a backseat to the horrors of what’s left of some of the deranged humans who have no moral compass. Each volume keeps you wanting more hoping for the survival of your favorite characters. I would highly recommend this series for horror fans and those that love great story telling. Jeff is at the top his game and these books are the proof ūüôā

– Stanley H. Cole via Amazon


Ah, the suspense is slowly building, and its killing me! Now we’re getting to the heart of the matter and finding out just what the heck is going on. I love these characters, and the story that Jeff keeps building on is one of the best. Also, with his new story Rath coming out, I’m excited to see what else Jeff can do. Yep, I’d recommend this story and author.

Again, what can I say about this story that hasn’t already been said? The story is one of the best out there. The characters are great, and the writing superb. You won’t be disappointed!

– Lisa via Amazon


Read this series you won’t be sorry.¬†I cannot say enough how much I like this series, Jeff has something great going here, do not miss it.¬†They just keep getting better every time I read more of this series, Jeff is such a good writer and is very responsive to your questions on his Facebook site.¬†I just cannot put this series down, a very good read that sucks you in an makes you want to keep coming back for more.

I so enjoy reading this series, always keeps you interested and very good characters that you hope make it through. You won’t be sorry you read this, I could not put it down.¬†If you buy one series to read, this is it, you won’t be disappointed..

Jon V. Theisen via Amazon


This is one of the best series around. Everyone who likes Post-Apocalyptic books this is a must book to read!!!!¬†I have read all of this series and loved everyone of the books. Jeff Olah really knows how to draw you into the story to the point that you don’t want to put the book down and are really disappointed when the book ends because you want more.

– Dawn via Amazon


Easily one of the best series out there in the zombie genre! Great story and dynamic characters with plenty of action makes for a great read!

This series continues to escalate in intensity, action, plot twists, emotional drama all the time! Like reeling in a great fish, the story gives you just enough of everything to stay hooked! Though the feeders are the genesis of the story, the author does a masterful job of weaving them into and out of the foreground of the story with the main characters, while keeping the action engaging and drama flowing. One great series! Walking Dead look out!

– H. Fields via Amazon


“I am a huge fan of “The Dead Years Volume 1″ and Mr Olah’s writing style. When I saw Volume 2 was out I didn’t hesitate. The story picks up were Volume 1 left off. It is just as action packed and fast paced as the first. You will NOT be disappointed!¬†Mr. Cliffhanger, Please hurry. Write fast. I need to know what happens next to Mason and company!”

– Diane “Tremont” via Amazon


“No rest for the weary… after their nightmare experiences in Volume 4, Mason ‘s group doesn’t get a break, it’s more non-stop action as they fight for survival and someplace safe.¬†If you haven’t read any of The Dead Years yet, put down whatever you’re reading now and pick up Volume 1. You won’t stop until you finish Volume 5 and start counting down to Volume 6. If you are already a fan of the series, Volume 5 does not disappoint.”

With volume 6 Jeff Olah has moved beyond the zombie genre into nail-biting suspense! Don’t worry, the bloody violence every zombie aficionado needs is still there, but now with a Tom Clancy spy thriller feel to it. I cannot wait to see where we go from here.

–¬†M Boese via Amazon


Young Mr. Olah, what can I say? You did it again. Hope you understand by now, that you are a good writer. I was glued to the page and it ended too soon. So hurry up with No 7. My family think I’m nuts because I love Zombie Tales. Keep writing. You’ve become my new favorite!

–¬†Pearle B. Zajack via Amazon


This series is gripping and will keep you turning the pages. I made the mistake of starting it and reading through the night. If you have to work the next day start it early. One of the most believable plots for a zombie book.

–¬†Thomas J McGinty via Amazon


OH I can’t believe Jeff is so cruel, mean, evil, and just my kind of person!!!! This book was just as good as the others and had me sitting on the edge of my seat until the very last page, when I fell off!!!!! Please tell me we don’t have to wait too long for the next book!!!
Those of you who haven’t started reading these books yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?!?!?!? Those of you who have been reading these books along with me we need to form a support group to help us make it through until the next book comes out!!!! ūüôā¬†Before I was hoping it would end now I hope this series never ends!!!! Thank you

If you haven’t read the other 4 books, what are you waiting for???? Stop reading this and go to book one and start reading NOW!!!!!!!

I can’t tell you anything about the story because I don’t want to give anything away but you have to read this entire series!!!!! It is SOOOOO good!!!! It leaves you as always needing more ūüôā

– Debbie via Amazon


Jeff Olah has proven to be an accomplished author, both in developing a really good story and in character development.¬†He is an excellent author and I thoroughly enjoyed this book (Kindle). Therefore, I highly recommend this author and this is a great read. Look for his other works and you won’t be disappointed.

– Kenneth C. Williams via Amazon


Of all the zombie thrillers I have read, The Dead Years series is by far one of my favorites. The story is told in a real and believable way, no superhero, no Rambo, the characters could be any of us. Scary exciting and heart-wrenching. Love you Jeff

– Cheri Dye via Amazon


Why must you torture me. Leaving Me on the edge of my seat. Please, I’m waiting for the next one, it’s been a roller coaster ride.

– William Capo via Amazon


I can’t believe how well you wrote this entire series. Am I the only one who thinks this story line is so suspenseful?¬†This is a great series and I encourage you to mainstream it.

– Tammy Son via Amazon


Omg it has been a long time since I read a good horror book that has an awesome story. Not only am I wrapped in this so tightly I also can’t wait to buy V2. If u want a spectacular zombie fix with a great story behind it. THIS IS IT. I’m giving this 5 stars. Kudos to Jeff Olah for a well written book. OK y’all I’m wasting time I need to find a wifi connection so I can purchase V2 and see what happens to Mason. Buy this if u r a true zombie fan u won’t b disappointed, at least I’m not so far. Ok gotta go I’m excited for the next reading adventure of V2.

I am addicted to this book. As you can see I am on v2, heading into v3. I’m like a kid in a candy store, at this moment I can’t get enough. All I can say to u as a viewer looking in best believe this is the stuff to read. This book volumes are awesome, and honey they don’t disappoint.

Each volume I read I get more wrapped in, I just can’t stand it. I’m going to be reading v4 in a matter of minutes and I’m on the edge of my seat. These volumes are the best and I’m getting my zombie fix, if u r a fan of zombies/feeders u should come on board and get a fix, lol.¬†OK I’m speechless. Where is volume 5 and when can I expect it? Can’t wait for V5. Please hurry, big fan here.

– Keisha via Amazon


All of the books, The Dead Years are fantastic reads!! I started Volume 1 two days ago. As of today I have read all 6 volumes and can’t wait for the rest!! Jeff Olah knows how to write a ZOMBIE story! Keep writing them and I’ll keep reading them!!

– Dan Smith via Amazon


What can I say other than Mr. Olah has written one of the best Zombie stories I have ever read. Keep up the outstanding writing. This story is rich in characters and action. Your writing style is second to none. Bring on book three!!

– Wolfman via Amazon


I just finished this and am already wishing the next Volume was ready. The plot thickens and the end is a cliffhanger. Going to check now to see if 7 is ready.

– Pittmeister via Amazon


I really liked this book. It was very easy for me to visualize me being there with the characters in the book… Looking forward to reading 4-6 next.

– Movie Fan via Amazon


I liked the fact that you didn’t have to curse or use any sensual scenes to catch the readers attention. I liked that the story was fast paced.

– Victor Escobar via Amazon


Great characters. Mr. Olah easily introduces each and blends them together so that you can see their strengths and human qualities/frailties. Easy read with enough details to enjoy the story without getting bogged down.

– Dorcasfrydl via Amazon


If you enjoy zombie books, this is the book for you! Lots of twists and turns! Very entertaining! Keeps you on your toes!

– Gingaru via Amazon


Excellent series. Well written, great blending of characters and story lines hard to put down. what can I say waiting for #6.

– Roger L. Kirchner via Amazon


I’ve been following this story, and it is getting soooo good. I highly recommend reading this series. I think you will really enjoy it.¬†This book like all the previous keeps ratcheting up the adrenaline! If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend purchase the books 1-8 now sold together as one so you can enjoy one easy read.

– Michael A. Tuccillo via Amazon


Powerful stuff my man Mr. Olah, very well done indeed good sir! I enjoyed this kick as$ volume the most so far by far because of Randys backstory connection to the “virus” which has its own differentiation compared to the typical viral outbreak story so kudos on the fresh perspective not to mention how well written it is. Thanks as well for ramping up a bit of the ol ultra violence & nice touch with the addition of Marty McFly lol now all I gotta do is go back to the future & read vol. 3! Keep up the great work we appreciate it!!

Dam you Justin! Frickin psycho keeps gettin everyone killed but it’s cool, adds to the apocalyptic ambiance especially Adams murder. I didn’t expect that one bit so please keep on keepin on exceeding my expectations Olah!

– Brent Tuleja via Amazon


I love this series can’t wait to continue reading them all, I am starting 2 and will keep going probably one a day. Will leave another as I get further. LOVE IT!

– Michelle Hollenbeck via Amazon


This was a great read. It reminded me a little bit of Survival Horror : The Restless Dead Awaken The difference is this book has a little less tongue-in-cheek humour, a little less of a ‘comic book’ feel to it, and is better edited.

The action builds quickly to a frantic pace, but the author somehow manages to drip feed the reader a feel for his characters along the way. The tension as Mason strives to unite with his wife and son feels very real and although the infection doesn’t read as ‘realistic’ the way the very human characters react in absurdly inhuman conditions. There’s sadness, a sense of realness, but also moments which show the author’s perception of human nature. The characters to me have slightly cliche’ names, and they maybe are a little cliche’, but they are so well written and react so believably this is completely forgivable.

The locations too are very vivid and believable, as is the way the characters are placed there. When Mason is trying to escape from an office with the infected banging on the windows I could almost have imagined I was in the middle of a multiplayer game of Left 4 Dead 2 (Xbox 360) !

I read this is in only a couple of sitting, it was very gripping and really hard to put down. I definitely enjoyed it and can’t wait to get my teeth into part 2!

– Martyn Stanley via Amazon


I’m not much of a reader, but this book caught my attention, and was able to keep it. I am now going to get the rest of this series to finish the story. I will recommend this series to my friends who are into this type of story.

– Riley L Jones via Amazon


The story is Developing great. Can’t wait for the next book to hit to find out where the story takes us.

– Don Walker via Amazon


Another great installment in this fun series! They get better and better! Can’t wait to download Volume 5! Keep them coming!

– Pete via Amazon


Love these stories! I get so spooked my eyes try to read faster than my brain can comprehend!! Can’t wait for the next one!

– Lo Jo via Amazon


Very, very good book. Short but very interesting. I Couldn’t put it down. I Can’t wait for the next book.

– Kelly Wood via Amazon


You won’t be able to stop at book one!
This series won’t disappoint! Excellent character development along with gripping plot lines!

– Jinjar via Amazon


Good series. Very good characters. Easy to follow. Keeps you entertained and stuck in the book for hours. Can’t wait for volume seven.

– Paula French via Amazon


This book was different but then all of the end of the world books are. I can’t wait for book 7 to see what happens next. Does Randy find them in time… HOPE so.

– Norma via Amazon


Another amazing read. I can’t wait for #5!! I’m sure this roller coaster ride will be worth the wait! Keep up the good work Jeff!

– Bill W via Amazon


Olah delivered again! The fifth volume had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading. Again, I read this book in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait until the next book!

– Jeff Narus via Amazon


I am fascinated with these books. The pace of the book is fast and the reader does not know what is going to happen next. The characters are facing different obstacles as they fight for their life’s while they keep their families together and creating a new family as they they understand they need each other if they are to survive.

– Gloria Justiniano via Amazon


I loved the first book getting to know Mason and his struggles to get home. I couldn’t put the book down. Addicting! I went right into Volume 2. Great story Jeff Olah. Can’t wait for the rest.

Volume 2 was awesome. I love this series and the way the characters are developing. Masons wife April is proving to be much stronger than I would’ve thought she was which is great. I really think I’m going to like Randy. Can’t wait for Volume 3.

– CJLovesBooks via Amazon


What a great series. I like this story line and have already gotten the other books on this series. If your into these kinds of stories you will definitely enjoy this series.¬†It just has me turning pages. I work a twelve hour shift, go to the gym and still come home and read this book. I can’t wait for volume eight.

– Robert Stephenson via Amazon


Wow! The action in this latest installment of the Dead Years was fantastic! You never know what’s about to happen, which character is about to die and how the survivors will make it out. This one was truly nail-biter throughout and what a cliffhanger at the end! Bring on volume 5, Mr Olah!

– M Boese via Amazon


This was a very well written book that kept my interest throughout. I can’t wait for more. Hopefully the story continues.

– Carlotta D. Crawford via Amazon


There needs to be more zombie authors. This book demonatrates how believable and terrifying apocalyptic fiction can be. Definitely would recommend.

– Minx via Amazon


I am now a huge fan, if you haven’t read The Dead Years I would definitely recommend. Fast paced and heart racing action. A must read.¬†This book keeps you wanting more and more. Cannot wait for the next Dead Years number 5.

I cannot wait to read the next book. I was so excited to see the books were out, 5 & 6. I would definitely recommend this series to others.

– Joanne Matarazzo via Amazon


These books held my attention and kept my heart beating fast. All were fast reading and exciting. Looking forward to the rest of the story.

– Barbara Turino via Amazon


Entertaining and Viable story line. Author is very entertaining and characters are well likeable/un-likeable when needed. Definitely a good read.

– Joey Barry via Amazon


A double wow on this one. I’m totally hooked now and I’m anxiously looking forward to reading Volume 3. The action and excitement portrayed in these writings is breath-taking superb. After reading Jeff’s 2 volumes, I believe that it doesn’t matter what genre a reader is interested in, if you are like me and love fast-moving action you will be love this series.

– Peaceseeker via Amazon


I had to force myself to slow down while reading this. It had me so excited and on the edge of my seat (so to speak). I would recommend this to everyone.

– Barbara A. Fike via Amazon


I have never been a zombie enthusiast, but I must tell you that after reading this book, I have been converted :). I read thru it very quickly so I could get to Volume 2. Trust me, give this author a try. I see a very promising future.

– Cathy via Amazon


Fun and fast paced! Can’t wait to read the next volume..buying it now! Try to put yourself in their place running and fighting feeders!

– Kathy Pucek via Amazon


This book is great. Please keep writing them. I would tell all I know if they like zombies they need to read your books. Can wait to purchase volume 4.

-Amanda Simmons via Amazon


This is a tightly written, fast moving zombie thriller. Jeff Olah keeps the story moving. He gives us enough Character development to help us care about these people and fear for them without grinding the story to a halt. That’s not an easy trick.
He has also given us the beginnings of an interesting backstory to his Zombie Apocalypse. I also love the references to LOST.

– Noozman5 via Amazon


Enjoying your series. I read a lot of the genre and your characters are some of the most well developed yet. Keep up the good work. Have to go just downloaded 6 and its gonna be a late nite.

– Karen via Email


I’m a big fan of zombie stories and ran into these books accidentally. Needless to say I read the 3 books in less than 2 days and loved it! I’m looking forward o the 4th chapter and I can say you will enjoy this story so don’t hesitate to buy it if you love zombie books packed with action and good characters.

– Stuart via Amazon


Wonderful series! Hard to put down. The best part, no foul language. This series drew me in from the get go.

– Emily Acosta via Amazon


This is such a good series! I honestly have nothing but raves for Mr. Olah. One complaint though. Please write faster! I love the characters in this story. They have genuine heart. They take care of each other. Oh sure, occasionally someone gets eaten! That’s what makes it so much fun! Keep writing Jeff. I’m still here reading.

– Lisa via Amazon


I enjoyed reading this book as I’m a huge fan of the zombie genre. I can see this being made into a TV series. I recommended it.

Great storyline. Follows the storyline perfectly and adds extra dimension to the overall plot. I would recommend all six volumes and putting them together gives a great thriller.

– Dr. Joe via Amazon


Excellent! Great Adventure! I love the way the author put all the details in order. This series is a cliff hanger. I loved it.

– Evelyn via Amazon


I am a zombie lover and have read many of these types of books. This one is well written, fast paced, and doesn’t feel the need to go into detail regarding every zombie kill. The author stays with the character and their feelings regarding the situation they are facing. I am looking forward to the next chapter of this series.

– Yrnowak via Amazon


Good read, fun, easy to get through. I have been reading the genre for a month or so now, it was not one I thought I would ever get into, but it would up being good. This is a good series, I read all the books up to volume 6, and while it is of course hard to say they are believable books, this is one of the more believable. Good writing style, easy to turn the pages!

– Ceeleone via Amazon


I like Olah. He is on to something. I want to know his characters and their stories. He has done a good job of bringing them to life in the face of adversity. Mostly though I think the author is a humble guy that is interested in feedback from his readers and so I say carry on Jeff. Your stories mean something to you and to your readers. I am looking forward to volume 8!

– Kelley Young via Amazon


Once again, a very well written installment in the series. I am looking forward to reading the next book. Keep them coming.

– Susan Copeland via Amazon


Nobody is safe . Ever … getting attached to anyone is a huge mistake. That’s why I keep coming back. Keep it real Jeff!

– B Bamber via Amazon


Jeff is an amazing storyteller. Hes unpredictable and daring, and every book is better than the last. He has grown so much during the course of this series! Every book leaves you wanting more!
