Review: Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry



In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn’t want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.



This is the best zombie apocalypse book I’ve read, so far. Highly recommended to other readers who enjoy this type of book! I’m looking forward to reading book two in the series.

    1. Thank you so much for the lovely compliment and the nomination! I’m new to blogging myself, but I really enjoy it.

      As for the book, yes, you should read it and the rest of the series! It really is one of the best of this type I’ve ever read.
