“Deadline” by Mira Grant releases today

One of my favorite books from last year was “Feed” by Mira Grant (it came in at #5 on my top 11 list for the year).  As I said about it at the time – “It’s that rare combination of a great story that also happens to be a great zombie story.  I really found myself invested in the characters and was emotionally affected by the ending in a manner that happens far too infrequently for me these days.” (You can read my full review of “Feed” here.)  I’m happy to say that today marks the release of “Deadline”, the sequel to “Feed”.  The back cover blurb reads:

Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn’t seem as fun when you’ve lost as much as he has.

But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.

Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

This is one of the books I’ve most been looking forward to this year and, as luck would have it, I just finished my latest read last night.  Thanks to the miracles of the Kindle, “Deadline” was waiting for me this morning when I woke up.  I’ll have a review posted as soon as I finish and digest the story.  In the meantime, if you’re a zombie fan, or just a fan of good stories, do yourself a favor and pick up “Deadline”.  (You can click here to order from Amazon, and support thewordzombie.com)

  1. Haven’t read Feed yet, but it’s on my wish list. The series sounds good. Too bad I’m immersed in so many series and trilogies already.
