Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling author and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner, Marvel Comics writer Jonathan Maberry continues the story he began in Rot and Ruin.

Six months have passed since Benny Imura and Nix Riley learned that flesh-eating zombies aren’t the scariest or most dangerous monsters around. Now, Benny’s brother Tom is training them in the art of zombie whacking. But as they plan to leave and find a better future, a zombie attack puts a crimp in their plans. And soon, they discover an old enemy they believed was long-gone may actually still be alive.

    Story
    "An excellent addition to the series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was just as hard to put down as Rot and Ruin! Once again Jonathan Maberry crafted a story that simply compelled you to continue reading. Dust and Decay introduced a few new characters while constantly evolving the original characters in realistic ways. The insight into human character is wonderful. This series is less about the dead and more about the way we approach living. I wept at the end, it was so unexpected and unwelcome! I can, however, clearly see how this book -and that ending - will flow beautifully into another book. This is a series not to be missed!


    What other book might you compare Dust and Decay to and why?

    As a post apocalyptic/zombie novel it falls into the same category as The Forest of Hands and Teeth series.


    What does Brian Hutchison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This story is performed wonderfully! He has a voice that seems very sympathetic to the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Well I'd have to steal a line from the book: Remember, in the Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic book to read or listen to - or both!

    Story
    "Great but oh so sad"

    I loved everything about this book, the characters, their growth and interactions with one another, the dialogue and the excellent action sequences (you can tell that the writer is a practitioner of martial arts) but it is also so very, very sad that this will be it for me - I'll be ending my enjoyment of the series here.
    But at the same time, the ending, while deeply sad, is very powerful and poignant and I wouldn't be surprised if that's more than enough incentive for many of you braver than I to continue reading. Enjoy!

    "Touching story"

    Two brothers. Their friend. Take on the world. For a Book that falls into the YA category, this is an extremely well written book. I've read other books from Mayberry and they're all very engaging. This one does not disappoint. Zombies (or Zoms), action, love and loss. This one has it all.

    This one is for anyone who enjoys a good adventure.

    "Hmmmmm"

    Good book.


    SPOILER



    Hate the ending. Wish it could have been different because it would have added flavor to the story as it unfolds further

    "Interesting"

    When I started this audible book, my thoughts were it was for a younger listener, but I heard it through. Good narrator and decent story. I may continue with others to see how the story evolves. Not the best I've heard but no way near the worst...

    "Pretty darn good!"

    I was amazed at where this story ended up going and I look forward to the next installment. This was a series that I've had on my shelves for quite some time and finally decided to pick up and man am I glad I did!
