The Labyrinth — an interdimensional construct that binds all of reality together.
Now, the Labyrinth is threatened. A group of malevolent cosmic entities known as The Thirteen have been loosed upon the universe. Ob, Leviathan, Behemoth, Nodens, Meeble, Shtar, Kandara and the rest of their kind have one goal — the complete destruction of all Creation.

THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH Book One — Everything dies, but not everything has an ending…until now.
Thus begins the final volume in Brian Keene's Hail Saten series, collecting non-fiction and essays that chronicle the horror genre's turbulent 2006 to 2008 period. As message boards gave way to social media, politics gave way to partisanship, and protest gave way to violence, LEADER OF THE BANNED offers an uncanny look at the world which would soon follow -- global recession, wars and rumors of wars, celebrity-driven news cycles, and great sweeping changes to how people would consume books and entertainment. Featuring fan-favorites such as "The Year of Scorched Earth", "Just Like Stephen King", Silver Bullets" and the controversial "If I Were President" (which landed Keene under investigation from the government), this fourth and final volume -- in paperback for the first time anywhere -- brings the Hail Saten series to an incendiary conclusion.
Since it's 2003 debut, Brian Keene's THE RISING is one of the best-selling zombie novels of all-time. It has been translated into over a dozen languages, inspired the works of other authors and filmmakers, and has become a cultural touchstone for an entire generation of horror fans.
THE RISING is the story of Jim Thurmond, a determined father battling his way across a post-apocalyptic zombie landscape, to find his young son. Accompanied by Martin, a preacher still holding to his faith, and Frankie, a recovering heroin addict with an indomitable will to survive, Jim travels from state to state and town to town, facing an endless onslaught of undead hordes, and the evils perpetrated by his fellow man.

In the aftermath of a devastating tsunami and a series of undersea earthquakes, hordes of Clickers swarm onto the California coastline, slaughtering everything in their path.

Now, Earth faces an invasion from not one, but two enemies—the mindless, hungry Clickers, and the evil, and equally ravenous zombies. Both groups have only one goal in mind—the total extermination of the human race. But what happens when these two forces meet...

The United States is in ruins. It has just suffered one of the worst hurricanes in history, the people are demoralized, and the president is a religious fanatic. Then things get really bad - the Clickers return. Thousands of the monsters swarm across the entire nation and march inland, slaughtering anyone and anything they come across. But this time the Clickers aren't blindly rushing onto land - they are being led by an intelligence older than civilization itself. A force that wants to take dry land away from the mammals. Those left alive soon realize that they must do everything and anything they can to protect humanity - no matter the cost.
