Throughout this book, the gang makes some really shocking discoveries. The zombies may have left my brain, but they certainly took my heart…in more ways than one. Overall, a great addition to a great series and I recommend it whole-heartedly. As Chris said, there is just something about Maberry and his ZA books that speak to the heart — erm — the brains of us. Book 3 introduces a lot of new characters and twists, explores our weary gang of survivors a little more deeply, and brings in some fun crossover from another popular Maberry series.

These are hefty books, but fast reads. I breezed through the first three in just one week. Benny and Tom Imura, Nix, Chong and Lilah had left the safety of Mountainside to search for the origins of the mysterious plane that flew overhead and headed east.
Rather than retreating in defeat back to Mountainside, the group decided to stay the course and head east, through the great zombie-infested Rot and Ruin. Benny is on a run for his life with hundreds of zombies breathing down his neck. There is no mention of Chong, Nix or Lilah. Benny is just running, and running hard. Just when we think Benny is home free, he stumbles and falls into a ravine.
The zombies, wild for his blood, shower down on him from above. Unable to climb out from the ravine, he is about to give up when he hears a child call for help. A five-year-old girl on the other side of the ravine soon tumbles down, giving Benny a reason to live. He grabs her and races along the ravine floor only to find a dead end.
Exposed to many threats in the great Rot and Ruin, such as hordes of flesh-eating zombies and starving wild animals, they come across a new threat just as deadly.
Again, man proves to be the most dangerous enemy but instead of corrupt bounty hunters, they face a legion of cult members who call themselves the Reapers. They are members of the Night Church led by Mother Rose and Saint John of the Knife, a former serial killer before the zombie apocalypse. In their church, the zombies are the Children of Lazarus who have been raised from the dead to inherit the earth. The Reapers are there to send the rest of the survivors who still cling to the flesh into the darkness.
Once again, the group gets split up. Benny, Nix and Chong find her parents but end up getting chased by the Reapers. Chong loses his way until he hears the little girl cry for help. Instead of running, he decided to take on the reapers by himself. Benny and Nix keep running until they find something in a clearing that changes everything. A downed plane.
Yet hope prevails. Through new acquaintances, each member of our questing group learns about Sanctuary and a fortified American nation that has conquered the lands on the east coast. The Night Church has heard these rumors too. With an army of thousands of converts, their mission is plain as day. I was heartbroken when he was killed at the end of the second book. Tom was a parental figure, the leader, and he was the cohesive member that kept everyone together.
It felt like just a bunch of vulnerable kids in the woods who relied on luck to see them through, all the while crying and reminiscing about Tom. Once again the group gets separated, once again they are chased by something other than zombies, and once again they come together at the very end to fight the big battle. And once again, the book leaves the end wide open. Nevertheless, it was still a fun read. As with the second book, each of our main characters is still fighting internal battles aside from the more obvious threats.
Lilah is still trying to cope with reintegration into society and she hates that fact that she cares about Chong so deeply.

Flesh and Bone
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.

Flesh & Bone
The third installment in this series delves into what the real world is really like and how death affects people differently. He's been thinking about Tom, and the way he died, and how he didn't reanimate and he isn't dealing with Tom's death well. As he is deep in thought a hoard of zombies catch him off-guard and start to chase him through the deserts of southern Nevada. She blows on a whistle that the zombies obey and she is in full control to Benny's disbelief and terror as he desperately looks for an escape route. Soon though he drops the kami katana but in doing so finds an escape route. Being very Benny like he is chuffed with but then soon falls down into the ravine himself. Slamming into the ground he finds that the 'ravine' is actually just a disguised gorge.
