Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry

Dust & Decay is the sequel to Rot & Ruin. Mayberry has the entire, Zombie Apocalypse down. He does an exceptional job of keeping you interested from start to finish.

Dust & Decay is better than Rot & Ruin, which is rare for a second book in a series. The writing style and technique stays the same. The characters are further developed and newly introduced characters are awesome. They are full of intrigue and originality.

Expect an action packed thriller with characters that crawl under your skin and stay with you long after you've put the book down.

Grade: A

Summary [B&N]
Six months have passed since the terrifying battle with Charlie Pink-eye and the Motor City Hammer in the zombie-infested mountains of the Rot & Ruin. It’s also been six months since Benny Imura and Nix Riley saw something in the air that changed their lives. Now, after months of rigorous training with Benny’s zombie-hunter brother Tom, Benny and Nix are ready to leave their home forever and search for a better future. Lilah the Lost Girl and Benny’s best friend Lou Chong are going with them.

But before they even leave there is a shocking zombie attack in town, and as soon as they step into the Rot & Ruin they are pursued by the living dead, wild animals, and insane murderers, and face the horrors of Gameland—where teenagers are forced to fight for their lives in the zombie pits. Worst of all…could the evil Charlie Pink-eye still be alive?

In the great Rot & Ruin, everything wants to kill you—and not everyone in Benny’s small band of travelers will survive….
