Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry Giveaway

Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry. I loved this book so much I decided to get two copies to giveaway. Here’s a short description from Amazon:

“It’s been 14 years since First Night, when the dead came back to life. Six billion people have died (and reanimated) since then, and America has collapsed into isolated communities living within the great “Rot and Ruin.” Benny is 15, which means it’s time to get a job or face cut rations,….”

Book Giveaway Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

Rot & Ruin is now one of my favourite books and it isn’t just about zombies, after “First Night” this world is changed forever. Life is now full of precautions, difficulties and hardships. This is the world Benny grows up in, yet some how he still has hope for the future. There’s action, adventure, at times even a bit of western feel. It will make you laugh, and cry, and be more than you ever expected.
