REVIEW for Dust & Decay

Thank you to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster Canada  for sending me a copy of this book.

TITLE:              Dust & Decay

AUTHOR:        Jonathan Maberry

GENRE:           YA

RATING:         5 stars (according to Sharon)

My friend Sharon reviewed this book since this is her kind of read and she was dying to read this one!  Here is her review.

You know you have read books that come in series and book 2 can never live up to the first? Well not the case with Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry. I was able to read the Rot and Ruin a loooong time ago as an ARC, so I was champing at the bit for this one! And it was so good!. It picked right up where the other left off, and I didn't get lost  from forgetting parts, cause he wove in stuff from book 1 beautifully. Benny and his friends are preparing to leave Mountainside with Tom, to search out that plane. But, things happen out in the Rot and Ruin that changes their plans. Another Gameland for starters, and something is happening with the Zoms! (zombies) Why are they acting strangely? (well, strange for a zombie)!

So much is happening, its exciting from page one. I loved this book, as much as I did book 1. I cant wait for the third. (there is a third right????) So for Zombie fans, or if you like an action packed read, I recommend these for sure.
