Waiting on Wednesday (47)

For those of you who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to reading.


Reeling from the tragic events of Dust & Decay, Benny Imura and his friends plunge deep into the zombie-invested wastelands of the great Rot & Ruin. Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong journey through a fierce wilderness that was once America, searching for the jet they saw in the skies months ago. If that jet exists then humanity itself must have survived…somewhere. Finding it is their best hope for having a future and a life worth living.

But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine. They are hunted by fierce animals escaped from zoos and circuses. They must raid zombie-infested towns for good and medical supplies. They discover the very real truth in the old saying: In the Rot & Ruin…everything wants to kill you.

And what is happening to the zombies? Swarms of them are coming from the east, devouring everything in their paths. These zooms are different. Faster, smarter, infinitely more dangerous. Has the zombie plague mutated, or is there something far more sinister behind this new invasion of the living dead?

In Flesh & Bone, Benny Imura, Nix Riley, Lou Chong and Lilah the Lost Girl are pitted against dangers greater than anything they've ever faced. To survive, each of them must rise to become the warriors Tom trained them to be.

Despite being a little doubtful at first, I absolutely loved Rot & Ruin and Dust & Decay. Jonathan Maberry wrote a zombie story that feels very real, and after everything that happened in Dust & Decay I can't wait to see where it goes next. If you haven't picked up this series yet, you definitely should.

Flesh & Bone by Jonathan Maberry will be published September 11, 2012 by Simon & Schuster BFYR.
