Cade Williams was just an ordinary cop until the night he came face to face with a fallen angel known as the Adversary and barely escaped with his life. Now he commands the Echo team, a special ops squad of modern Templar knights, and the things they hunt are far darker and much more deadly than the average criminal.
When a Jesuit priest wanders of the New Mexico desert, telling wild stories about a secret research facility and bloodthirsty demond hunting through its halls, the Ech Team is called in to deal with the situation. Their orders are to investigate the facility, determine exactly what happened there, and deal with any infernal presence they might discover hiding there.
But the being they encounter beneath the desert sands has found a way to break the bonds of Hell itself and doesn't plan on going back easily. This time, their foe might prove to much for even Cade and the men of the Echo Team...

Combine the take-no-prisoners heroic grit of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds with the irreverent inventiveness of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, set it on the blood-and-gore-soaked European battlefields of World War One, and you get By the Blood of Heroes, a wildly imaginative alternate history zombie novel by acclaimed urban fantasy author Joseph Nassise. When the German high command employs a terrible new chemical weapon that reanimates the dead, Allied forces must take on the Kaiser’s zombie army in order to rescue a downed American flying ace in the first book of Nassise’s The Great Undead War saga. By the Blood of Heroes is a deliciously gruesome adventure that horror and alternate history lovers, steampunk aficionados, and fans of such zombie-centric offerings as TV’s The Walking Dead, popular literature’s World War Z, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Zombie Haiku, and the Resident Evil video game and film series will eagerly devour.
At the close of 1917, the Germans introduced a new type of gas, T-Leiche—“corpse gas”—a revolutionary weapon that changed the war. Instead of killing the living, T-Leiche resurrected the bodies of the dead.
Though they survived the killing fields of France, the danger has only just begun for veteran Captain Michael "Madman" Burke and company. They've just been assigned a new mission: rescue Princess Veronica, the sole surviving member of the British royal family. But Kaiser Manfred Von Richthofen, the undead Red Baron and new leader of Germany, is determined to find Veronica as well.
In the devastated, zombie-infested city of London, Burke and his men will face off in an unholy battle with their most formidable opponent yet: a team led by none other than his infected former right-hand man, Sergeant Moore. If they don't succeed, all of Britain will fall into undead Central hands.
