THE Army of the Undead - the second book in Stuart Daly's Witch Hunter Chronicles - will be released on November 1.
The novel, aimed at young adult readers, continues the story of 16-year-old Jakob, a seventeenth century witch hunter who has been charged with stopping Armageddon by fighting off a horde of 2000-year-old zombies set forth to retrieve an ancient tablet.
It is the Sydney high school teacher's second novel and was inspired by his own studies of the English Civil War.
The first, The Scourge of Jericho, has been widely praised by reviewers.
