Fire & Ash (Rot & Ruin) by Jonathan Maberry

"Fire & Ash"is the last book in the Rot & Ruin series and it ties everything together pretty well.  The character's have grown tremendously over the entire series, most of it happening in this last book.

There is a great deal of action as Benny and his crew go off in search of a doctor who just might have the end all cure. The zombies are mutating and time is of the essence as.  Their own town might fall prey to those who want the entire human species eradicated. The stakes are higher then ever and this action packed, impossible to put down book.

Grade: A-


Overview [B&N]

In the gripping conclusion to the action-packed “standard bearer” (Booklist) of zombie series, the threat of death is given new life.
Benny Imura and his friends have found the jet and Sanctuary—but neither is what they expected. Instead of a refuge, Sanctuary is a hospice, and the soldiers who flew the plane seem to be little more than bureaucrats who have given up hope for humanity’s future. With Chong hovering between life and death, clinging to his humanity by a thread, Benny makes a startling discovery: A scientist may have discovered a cure for the zombie plague. Desperate to save Chong, Benny and his friends mount a search and rescue mission. But they’re not the only ones on the hunt. The reapers are after the cure too, and they want to use it turn all the zombies into superfast shock troops—and wipe humanity off the face of the earth.
