    Hi, Sam.
    Just finished “Saint/Sinner”, after a bout with that creep in “Hunter/Prey” – enjoyed them both. My first read(s) of any of your stories and hope to read more about Krycek and especially Apollo.

    Thanks for the Krycek series! I love the character and how you handle the stories. I’m mid-book 2, and am pacing myself – I want to know more…I don’t want it to end.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Sam,
    I finished The Purge book 8 and would like to know,when “The bones of valhalla” can be expected. I’m kind of hanging in the air what will happen to Gaby,Nate, Danny and the others?
    Thanks, Anne

    Hey, I just started listening to the Purge series audiobooks and on book 3 and I was wondering, would colloidal silver help survivors protect themselves against the Ghouls? You know, causing survivor’s blood to become poison to the Ghouls? Just thinking out loud.

    just finished bones of valhalla. bravo sam. one of the most entertaining series i’ve ever read. it had to end that way. bravo

    Spoiler Alert for anyone who has not read Bones of Valhalla:

    I am so disappointed about the ending of the Bones of Valhalla. Your writing is great and you spin a wonderful story but so much was invested in (hoping) for a happy ending. It was really sad. I feel like after 9 books it was going to be a powerful and wonderful ending. Now I feel so let down. I was so hoping for a Will survival story.

    Hi Sam–LOVE your books, just finished the bones of Valhalla and loved it. I am writing to say that Bones of Valhalla is on a pirate site:


    best, Elizabeth

    • Sam August 18, 2016 at 9:18 am

      Hi Elizabeth. Thanks for reading! I edited out the URL of the pirate site because I don’t want to give them a free link. My motto about pirates is that, pirates will pirate, not much you can do about them.

    Hi Sam, well today is the day that I have been dreading. I downloaded book 9 in the Babylon series. I am already crying, for real. I have really enjoyed this series. I absolutely love Danny and Keo. I really just want to say THANK YOU. It is so rare that a person finds a series that they like this much. I don’t think I have cried this much over a book either. Oh wait…About 35 years ago. Stay gold Ponyboy, stay gold.

    Great series, Sam. Just finished book 9. Read all the comments, including your responses. Don’t think I read this one: You have a good heart and are a good person! There’s not enough people like that in the world. THANKS!

    On my tablet now, tried to post a comment from my Kindle but it went all fubared.
    Anyhow, I finally got the time to read and finish The Bones of Valhalla. (Some of us old folks still have to go to work to put food on the table. “Hey, you kids get outta my yard!”)
    It was a good ending to a great series.
    No parades or marching bands for the conquering hero, but then we all new it wasn’t going to end well for Will. I actually thought when Mabry went, ya’know, pffft, all the ghouls would just crumble. But this ending allows for a revisit (hopefully many) of this story line.
    Maybe even a back story on Mabry (This blue eyed ghoul walks into a bar in Houston and says to the bartender…). Sorry went all Danny there for a sec.
    Anyhow, I know you’ve got other irons in the fire (old people’s speak for other projects), but possibly sometime in the (near?) future you’ll let us visit some old friends.

    • Sam August 31, 2016 at 3:35 pm

      Hey Larry. Yeah, finishing up some stuff now, but expect a Purge novella before the end of the year and something…more substantial in the Purge universe in 2017. Fingers crossed!

  11. Sonia September 3, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    Hi Sam, I just finished reading The Bones of Vahalhalla. This was an amazing book and I loved the way you tied all of the books together at the end. I look forward to reading your future books whether part of this universe or other books. You are talented! Keep them coming! A fan forever…

    Just finished Bones…
    Amazing, man. I’ve read a ton of PA, ZA, etc stuff recently (I read A LOT) and greatly enjoyed this series. I tend to knock out books quite rapidly…this series was too compelling to put down and I tore through it in about a week.
    Just wanted to say I REALLY enjoyed it. I’ve allocated hundreds of hours toward this genre, and I enjoyed this as much as/if not more than anything I’ve ripped through before. Extremely enjoyable and, although things were working toward certain deaths/endpoints since the third or fourth book, I think you wrapped things up in an uncanny way and I really enjoyed it. Quite thought out and brilliantly resolved storyline (and I’ve got zero background in writing, although as I’m plowing through years in finance, in my latter thirties I find myself longing to find a career reaching people the way you do).

    Utterly in awe…

    Thank you,

    I just read Shadow Operators Origins. I really like the way this is going.

    When is the next one?

    Maybe I just can’t find it.

  14. Carole October 17, 2016 at 11:08 am

    I love the Allie Krycek series!! I’ve loved every one of these books, all of them ( just like Allie) are winners. Waiting impatiently for number 4!!

  15. C October 30, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    I’m currently reading The Shadow Operators. Just curious if you would be writing any more for this story. I am sure you are busy as can be with your other books. Was just curious. Thanks!

  16. Dave Perry November 29, 2016 at 8:28 am

    Started book 9 last night….what a great series! thank you!

  17. Andrew Storm December 6, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    Hey Sam! I just finished the series and really enjoyed it. I’ve been reading some of your blog posts and am in the process of a writing a book in the dystopian genre myself, though a very different theme. Would you be willing to correspond a bit over e-mail for some questions? It can be as limited as pointing me in the right direction to find my own answers if you’re too busy (totally understand). I really enjoy your writing style however and think mine comes across a bit similar (in my head anyway) so I’d greatly appreciate any help/thoughts/advice/warnings/threats/etc…

  18. Kim May 2, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    Hello, where do I find books 2-5 of the Origins series?

  19. Pam Madril May 20, 2017 at 1:24 pm

    I NEED the Walls of Lemuria and Fields of Lemuria in paperback! Any chance of that happening? Thanks, Pam

  20. Louise July 25, 2017 at 1:46 pm

    I am reading Keo’s tale. I have read all the other books. I swear Sam, if that bloody horse dies I’m going to be really cross.

  21. Susan Howard July 29, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    As much as I like Keo storylines, the heart of the story has always been Will. Come on, Sam. Figure out a way to bring back Will NORMAL and give us some more Will and Danny storylines.

    I felt disappointed when I realized that The Purge of Babylon was a zombie (like how the word zombie was never used throughout the series!) book and almost stopped reading it. I had never read a book about the living dead and what kept me going was the character development and superb writing. I am so happy that I kept going. I read a lot of series and the Purge/Road to Babylon are truly the only ones where I feel that I know the characters, care what happens, and remember the plot lines. I am particularly drawn to Keo and I think I know why. People like Keo are the ones who keep the human race alive through plagues and other pandemics. Keo doesn’t feel 100% comfortable around other people, which is not to say he doesn’t care about others. Whether through the brilliance of natural selection or through learned behavior, people like Keo and I stand a good chance of avoiding infection! Keep up the good work Sam! I think I’ve now read everything you’ve published and look forward to more.

  23. Elizabeth May 17, 2018 at 3:56 pm

    I. Am. Hooked. One book 6 of the Purge series and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. (You k now how you get tired with the characters and say blah blah blah and stop reading the series). Not with this one. Dramatic, creepy, fast-paced, funny… thank you!
