Publisher's Summary

In the gripping conclusion to the action-packed "standard bearer" 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. In this riveting conclusion to the Rot & Ruin series, the battle to end all battles is just beginning.

    "So Sad to see it Go!"

    Read from March 14 to 23, 2015

    Read/Listened for Fun (Audible/Library)
    Overall Rating: 4.00
    Story Rating: 3.75
    Character Rating: 4.25

    Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

    First Thought when Finished: Oh Benny so sad to see you go! Fire and Ash by Jonathan Maberry was a good ending to a great series!

    Overall Thoughts:
    1: Why did it have to end! I am going to miss little Benny Imura who ended up not so little and really a good man!
    2: When a certain character is in the book--I get giddy. Which is awesome cause I was worried when reading another book then remember yeah he makes it!
    3: The gals really kicked ass and have to say they were the true saviors of the day.
    4: Those kids from book 1 are more grounded, well-thought, and observant than many of the adults. I could live in a world where they were our future.
    5: Jonathan Maberry simply knows how to write a good story. *hat off to you sir*

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated by: Brian Hutchison /Length: 11 hrs and 53 mins / Publisher: Recorded Books


    Brian really does a great job with this series. Through no fault of his own (blame Ray Porter) there was just one voice I was like---nooooooo! However, he still did a great job with it. I highly recommend this on audio!

    "Great ending!"

    So satisfying. Too often you get to the end of a series and the end doesn't live up to the story line. THis one doesn't disappoint. Well done, Mr. Maberry.

    "Great book series"

    I stumbled upon Jonathan Mayberry sometime last year and instantly clung to the books in the joe ledger series.

    I have since purchased all his books both hard copy and audiobook and have become a huge fan.

    This novel is a wonderful finish to a great series I enjoyed all of the books and its a toss up as to which was my favourite but I loved how he incorporated other characters from his other books into the story and gave a shout out to the walking dead as well all around great ending to a great series

    If this is your first Mayberry series I would highly recommend listening to the joe ledger books

    "Another Maberry Must Read"

    Jonathan Maberry books are a must!!!if you enjoy zombie books then you Have to know his name. I'd start with the Ledger Books, then hit the Dez Fox Night books THEN read this series. Trust me on this. It's sooo worth it..You'll appreciate how [he] weaves characters from other series together to give you a feeling of having a unique perspective that only few could have

    Bravo for the tip of the hat to a much loved Zombie show..."Quick draw Carl...son of the famous Sherriff Rick 😉"
    The narrator is excellent (although no one beats R C Bray) but this guy is great
