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. And then there's the zombies--swarms of them coming from the east, devouring everything in their paths. And these zoms are different. Faster, smarter, and infinitely more dangerous. Has the zombie plague mutated, or is there something far more sinister behind this new invasion of the living dead?
One thing Benny and his companions can't afford to forget: In the great Rot & Ruin, everything wants to kill you.
Praise For Flesh & Bone…
"The third time’s the charm with even more adventure—and gore—as the series continues."--Kirkus Reviews
Lots of action and generous helpings of blood and gore keep the story moving briskly.
"Zombies have run amok in YA lit, but the standard bearer remains Maberry's straight-ahead, action-drama series that began with Rot & Ruin (2010) and Dust & Decay (2011)...Waiting for the full reveal in volume four won't be easy."
