Dallas, TX February 12, 2013 – Gamers get ready to immerse yourself in a new world.  Day 8 New Human War Part One has been added to Amazon’s stable of growing independently published books.  Fans of the popular video game titles The Walking Dead and Gears of War now have a new world to get engrossed in.  Authored by new writer, Daylon Deon, the Day 8 New Human War series turns the science fiction genre on its side with a fresh, new story.  Within its pages, the world is introduced to an exciting new lead character, Abraham Derven.  Remember that name!

In 2023, the world saw its Sun rupture and change the atmosphere. Now, what was once a creature of the night, the Vazzul are now able to do their bidding in the day.

To battle the new terror, the government produced a vaccine intended to protect humanity. But what they did was infect the world and create a thing your nightmares even fear; something even greater to fight than the Vazzul. Becoming infected was just the beginning.

The days themselves have been forever changed. Humanity faces the uncertainty of a ruptured Sun and an enemy that changes and grows stronger each day.

Standing in the midst of humanity's darkest shadow is Abraham and the New Humans. They fight to protect the city and return a small piece of normal to the world.

Will their newfound abilities be enough to stop the infected and the Vazzul? The New Human War has begun.

Day 8 New Human War Part One can be purchased for only $.99US (price will vary depending on region) on and directly at  It is available worldwide to be delivered wirelessly to all Kindle devices as well as to any smartphone or tablets with access to download the Kindle app*. 

“Abraham Derven is a character that I think everyone will rally behind and want to see on the big screen.  I wanted to write something that I thought would be fun to read not only for every sci-fi fan and gamer around but for every reading fan,” Daylon Deon said.

“The more I read it, the more hooked I became.  I can compare it to Gears of War, The Walking Dead and Blade all mixed together!” – Day 8 New Human War fan Willie Pruitt.

For updates and a look inside the war, please follow @newhumanwar on Twitter.

*The Kindle app is available through Google Play Store, App Store and Windows Marketplace on your Android, iOS or Windows Phone device.
