teen fiction/zombie apocalypse series. A solid series. ( )

This didn't seem like the final book in a trilogy. And I'm not sure how I feel about that. No, I'm not really happy about never seeing Benny and Nix again, but is there anything else to say? I kinda hope so.

I liked this one less than the first two, but maybe because the story seemed to be tamer or maybe because it was winding down.

One thing I hated: "red mouths" and "red doors." I wanted to be sick when I read those phrases. And I read them a whole heck of a lot over the course of 400 pages. Blech. ( )

This book was a positive for the series. I felt a little down after reading Dust & Decay because it felt like a bigger and badder sequel with nothing new to offer. Flesh & Bone was an exciting addition. At the end of the first book Benny and Nix saw a jet, finally in this story they are off to find the jet. Along the way they realize the zombies are even more unpredictable then ever; they seem smarter. They also come into contact with a murderous cult called the Night Church lead by Mother Rose and Saint John. The Reapers of the Night Church have a goal of sending heretics to the darkness (death), for which all people should someday be privileged to go to. There is also another name they keep hearing about, Sanctuary. A place that some are trying to make it to and the Night Church is trying to destroy.

The first 50 pages of this book consisted of one zombie fight scene with Benny at the forefront. This for me was a little much. I feel like the author is trying to elongate the series. Once we get through the beginning we get to the meat of the story and there is a lot of it. I like the addition of the cult. Even though evil cults are often being used as antagonists, they are good in this storyline. There are some great new characters in this story, such as Riot, Ranger Joe, and Joe’s awesome armored dog Grimm. Maberry has a way of always writing amazing endings where everything culminates in a grand scene and you can’t stop reading -- and yet we are anxiously waiting for the next storyline to proceed. Maberry has done it again and I will be picking up the next book in this series. ( )
