Publisher's Summary

Multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry’s Rot & Ruin is his debut work for young readers. Fifteen-year-old Benny Imura lives in a world infested with zombies where, when a kid turns 15, he must get a job to continue receiving food rations. Benny has no interest in the family business of zombie killing, but figures he doesn’t have much of a choice. He’s tried out a bunch of other jobs, and hasn’t found anything he likes. But as Benny starts training with his brother, he learns things about being human that he never expected.

    "Good but not great!"

    This is a zombie book but not as much as I was hoping. Overall I would recommend but nothing like Day by Day Armageddon, Beyond Exile, Patient Zero or The Morning Star Strain.

    "Liked it, going for next in series!"

    This was an interesting new take on the ZA! We have all read a myriad of books that tell the ZA story from the beginning. This was refreshing because it tells the story about life 15 years after the upheaval. The author coaxes you into understanding a whole new viewpoint. Amazing! Beware it does start off slow, but hang in there it is worth the ride, your credit and your NEXT credit in my opinion!

    "Starts SLOW....."

    Starts slow but worth it if you hang with it. Zombie story with empathy - strange!

    "A great take on zombie books"

    great take on zombie book. a couple slow parts, but it wasn't something I wanted to stop listening to at any point. I fell in love with the Captain Ledger series, and so far I'm NOT dissapointed with this one.

    "YA Zombie fiction without too much angst."
    What did you like best about this story?

    The author writes mostly for adults but this series works well with the younger audience too. It works out as a Western in most regards, but then again a lot of really well done post apocalypse stories end up being a Western in disguise.

    "most excellent"

    I was thrilled and fascinated by the Joe ledger series so I decided to try another. Benny imura has absolutely lived up to the expectations I have developed in reading Jonathan maberrys other books.
