Product description

Review

"George Romero meets "The Catcher in the Rye" in this poignant and moving coming of age novel set during zombie times. I welled up at the end, then smiled through my tears when I realized there was going to be a sequel. Bravo, Jonathan Maberry. Can't wait to read more." --Nancy Holder, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Wicked" and "Possessions"

“Horror fans will appreciate the gorge-raising descriptions of the shambling zombies...while zombie-apocalypse aficionados will cotton to the solid world-building and refreshingly old-school undead. --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

"An impressive mix of meaning and mayhem."--"Booklist"

"Horror fans will appreciate the gorge-raising descriptions of the shambling zombies...while zombie-apocalypse aficionados will cotton to the solid world-building and refreshingly old-school undead. --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

"An action-packed, thought-provoking look at life--and death--as readers determine the true enemy."--"Kirkus Reviews"

"Thrilling, enticing, and surprisingly touching, "Rot & Ruin" will grip readers from beginning to end, and make them question who the real monsters are. It had me hooked from page one."--Heather Brewer, author of "The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod" series

* "The delineation between man and monster, survivor and victim is fiercely debated in Maberry s thoughtful, postapocalyptic coming-of-age tale...In turns mythic and down-to-earth, this intense novel combines adventure and philosophy to tell a truly memorable zombie story, one that forces readers to consider them not just as flesh-eating monsters or things to be splattered, but as people. --"Publishers Weekly, "starred review"

"This is a romping, stomping adventure. And while most zombie novels are all about the brains, this one has a heart as well. With the dead prowling all around, fifteen-year-old Benny Imura learns the bittersweet lessons of life, love, and family in the great Rot & Ruin. Anyone with a pulse will enjoy this novel, and anyone with a brain will find plenty of food for thought inside."--Michael Northrop, author of Gentlemen

"This is no ordinary zombie novel. Maberry has given it a soul in the form of two brothers who captured my heart from the first page and refused to let go."--Maria V. Snyder, New York Times bestselling author of Poison Study
