Dead Island getting a novel, because why not?

Another game, another prequel novel. The unlikely candidate this time is Deep Silver's Dead Island, with a book penned by British fantasy author Mark Morris. Seriously? Yeah, seriously.

"For guests of the five-star Royal Palms Resort it was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday; an escape to the stunning beaches of a tropical paradise unlike any other," reads the summary. "But a mysterious zombie outbreak suddenly -- and without warning -- rips apart the pacific paradise island of Banoi, and four individuals with distinctive backgrounds and abilities seem to be unaffected by the zombie apocalypse."

A lot of these novels have been surprisingly high quality recently. I at least dug the Dragon Age and Dead Space ones. Dead Island's will be out on September 8.
