This is the first of four books in this zombie series I am reading. Now normally I steer clear of these types of books, because I think it is an annoying topic. I mean I don’t even watch the Walking Dead, because the zombie thing just has no appeal for me. I purchased this series because it was in the bargain section at Books-A-Million. I mean at 3 bucks a book, it ain’t bad. And they are very thick. 458 pages. 55 chapters. Epilogue. 3 sections. The next chapter in the second book. Loved it.

But in Rot and Ruin was a book that looks more into the lives of the people who are surviving after First Night. The main characters are Tom, his little brother Benny, Nix, Chong and Morgie and The Lost Girl. You have bounty hunters, you have carpeted horses, and cadaverine; Gameland and the Hungry Forest.

What I like about this book is the raw emotion that is written, and what you can imagine what people would do in this type of situation. It brings some tears up, yeah, I get teary eyed. But it is incredibly sad and it just lets you know how people will really do anything for power, which is what we see now.

I know that this book should give people the idea of how to live off the grid. Because if this was to happen, a lot of people are lunch, dinner and dessert lol.

A New Zombie Series I am Reading

So we where at BAM  (Books A Million) and they have this ginormous bargain section. I mean like freaking big, we spent 2 hours in that section and loaded up on a box of books and three bags lol. Just a few hundred dollars short then when we came in. But come in, when nice thick books are like 3 bucks, you buy them bitches!

So the series I got, was mainly because of the titles. They are written by Jonathan Maberry and they are a different type of zombie books. You see them from those who have survived first night, and you take a look into the lives of the people who are surviving. There is no just kill zombies and die. This is more personal and it is really good. So the books have really cute names and it is in a series of four of them.

Dust and Decay

Flesh and Bone

Fire and Ash

All I can say is reading the back of the last book this shit is going to go down, you hear me. I will keep you updated and will write a review after each one. That way you can get a feel for the story. It does involve a group of 15 year old kids, but nothing like the kids in our world who just do nothing with their lives. These kids work to kill zombies to get ratios once they turn 15.

And we thought we had it hard.
