Fire & Ash by Jonathan Maberry

Length: 11 hrs and 53 mins

Genre: Dystopian, YA

In the gripping conclusion to the action-packed standard bearer (Booklist) of zombie series, the threat of death is given new life.

Benny Imura and his friends have found the jet and Sanctuary, but neither is what they expected. Instead of a refuge, Sanctuary is a hospice, and the soldiers who flew the plane seem to be little more than bureaucrats who have given up hope for humanity's future. With Chong hovering between life and death, clinging to his humanity by a thread, Benny makes a startling discovery: A scientist may have discovered a cure for the zombie plague. Desperate to save Chong, Benny and his friends mount a search and rescue mission. But they're not the only ones on the hunt. The reapers are after the cure too, and they want to use it turn all the zombies into superfast shock troops and wipe humanity off the face of the earth.

In this riveting conclusion to the Rot & Ruin series, the battle to end all battles is just beginning.

First Thought when Finished: Oh Benny so sad to see you go! Fire & Ash by Jonathan Maberry was a good ending to a great series!

Overall Thoughts:
1: Why did it have to end! I am going to miss little Benny Imura who ended up not so little and really a good man!
2: When a certain character is in the book–I get giddy. Which is awesome cause I was worried when reading another book then remember yeah he makes it!
3: The gals really kicked ass and have to say they were the true saviors of the day.
4: Those kids from book 1 are more grounded, well-thought, and observant than many of the adults. I could live in a world where they were our future.
5: Jonathan Maberry simply knows how to write a good story. *hat off to you sir*

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Brian Hutchison /Length: 11 hrs and 53 mins / Publisher: Recorded Books

Brian really does a great job with this series. Through no fault of his own (blame Ray Porter) there was just one voice I was like—nooooooo! However, he still did a great job with it. I highly recommend this on audio!

  1. I already have this series on my list – maybe because of you. I’m glad it was a satisfying conclusion- even if you are sad to see it go!
