The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop.

The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives—the dark conspiracy behind the infected.

The truth will get out, even if it kills them.


SO, SO, Good!  That is what I have to say ;).  Okay, I might have more than that, but I needed to start with that!  This is such a great zombie book.  I think this was a unique zombie book.  It wasn't like end of the world, no one lives, kind of book.  It was so much more than that!

Georgia and her brother Shaun along with their friend Buffy apply to follow one of the Presidential Candidates as newsies.  When they got the job they were ecstatic.  Georgia has always been known as someone who always tells the truth.  Her brother Shaun is known for playing with the dead, and making news out of it.  Buffy is the mastermind behind cameras, recording devices, and live stream videos.

The trio packs up their lives and begin to follow their candidate.  He is a good guy, and has such a great platform for running.  What the team didn't know is that someone is plotting against their candidate and Georgia and her team are part of that target.

A stream of bad situations follows this crew and it doesn't get easier.  People are lost, facts are found, and plots exposed.  This book keeps you on your toes the whole time. 

This book is so well written, and the narrator did a good job bringing this book to life for me.  I love how this book had people living in communities, having jobs, and living life even though there had been an outbreak of a zombie virus.

I like the angle the book takes on zombies.  They are scary, and more real life than any other zombie book I have read.  I cannot wait until I start the next book.  This series is going to be fantastic!

Source:  I bought this audio book for myself.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

Content:  Lots of language including the "f" word several times.  Some talk of sex, but nothing explicit.





Mira Grant
pic and bio taken from Goodreads

Mira also writes as Seanan McGuire.

Born and raised in Northern California, Mira Grant has made a lifelong study of horror movies, horrible viruses, and the inevitable threat of the living dead. In college, she was voted Most Likely to Summon Something Horrible in the Cornfield, and was a founding member of the Horror Movie Sleep-Away Survival Camp, where her record for time survived in the Swamp Cannibals scenario remains unchallenged.

Mira lives in a crumbling farmhouse with an assortment of cats, horror movies, comics, and books about horrible diseases. When not writing, she splits her time between travel, auditing college virology courses, and watching more horror movies than is strictly good for you. Favorite vacation spots include Seattle, London, and a large haunted corn maze just outside of Huntsville, Alabama.

Mira sleeps with a machete under her bed, and highly suggests that you do the same.
