Reeling from the devastation of Dust & Decay, Benny Imura and his friends plunge deep into the zombie-infested wastelands of the great Rot & Ruin. Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong journey through a fierce wilderness that was once America, searching for the jet they saw in the skies months ago. If that jet exists, then humanity itself must have survived somewhere.
Finding it is their best hope for having a future and a life worth living.But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine. Fierce animals hunt them. They come face to face with a death cult. And then there' s the zombies - swarms of them coming from the east, devouring everything in their paths. And these zoms are different.
Faster, smarter, and infinitely more dangerous. Has the zombie plague mutated, or is there something far more sinister behind this new invasion of the living dead? One thing Benny and his companions can' t afford to forget: In the great Rot & Ruin, everything wants to kill you.

Love epic sci fi and fantasy, but hate looking of really good books. So many duds out there. I am gamer too.
I was waiting forever for the audio release. I even wrote Jonathan Maberry to find out when it was coming out and told me it wasn't, my hopes were dashed in ever finishing the story. Well, it was a welcomed surprise to see it one day sitting in the pre-order section.
This story fills outs the questions from the first two books, but opens more up at what will happen in next book. In this book we find a death cult group and learn about new types of zombies. Not to spoil anything, but if you have read other Maberry books, a certain character pops up in the middle of this one. That put a big ol' smile on my face.
From the sounds of it, the next book will be the last one.
I've listened to 15 plus zombie books and Rot and Ruin is the best of the genre. It's not just another story where some person goes from place to place trying to survive (don't get me wrong, I love a good apocalyptic book). Unlike every other series, you actually care about the characters. Hutchinson's narration is incredible again.
P.S. This is also my 9th Maberry book and I love them all. Joe Ledger series, Pine Deep and Rot and Ruin. Check them all out.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
Something different in the world of Zombies... a possible way out? I read all three books and enjoyed each and every one. The characters are unique and strong.
well mayberry does a great job with this third book keeping things interesting with new enemies new problems and new badasses ( well mostly new )
