One of the best books I've ever read

Another great book in the Rot & Ruin series. In this one, Tom, Benny, Nix, Chong and Lilah set out in the great Rot and Ruin in search of what lays beyond. But, who is hunting who and for what purpose? Is Charlie dead or isn't he? and what about Gameland? Once you start, you won't be able to put this title down.

The book was great, as good as the first one. But as nanajoe said, it was fairly repetitive and I was disappointed by the ending... );

This book is even better than the first one. As a complete and total fan of this series, I will recommend this book to you, if you've read Rot & Ruin. This has such a rich, fast-paced story. It doesn't sit still for a second! There's so much action, and just a touch of romance- good enough for any reader. I still cannot believe this series doesn't have more publicity.

If you are waiting for the apocolyose, and wonder how you would handle it - this is the book for your. 99 Problems, but zombies isn't one of them. (Aki)

This might be my favorite Author. Kept me from sleep to finish this book, but well worth it.

The follow-up to Rot & Ruin, Dust & Decay is a sequel that avoids the whole "second book" stigma (i.e. not always being the best book). Instead, Dust & Decay grabs you with all the action of the first book, except now you've got a relationship with the characters from the get-go, and it has even more opportunities to tug on your hearstrings. It's the zombie book that isn't a zombie book - give this series a try!

The sequel to rot & ruin originally a short story written in the book New Dead a zombie anthology and expanded into a full book. Just as good as the first one this book follows Benny imura and his brother Tom Imura both closure specialist bent on shutting down an evil operation called the Z games which pits man against zombie in a battle to the death. Along the way they discover a terrible truth that could end them all. a riveting book that pairs with the first perfectly.
