Publisher Comments:

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

NOW, twenty years after the Rising, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives — the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them.

Review:

"Urban fantasist Seanan McGuire (Rosemary and Rue) picks up a new pen name for this gripping, thrilling, and brutal depiction of a postapocalyptic 2039. Twin bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason and their colleague Buffy are thrilled when Sen. Peter Ryman, the first presidential candidate to come of age since social media saved the world from a virus that reanimates the dead, invites them to cover his campaign. Then an event is attacked by zombies, and Ryman's daughter is killed. As the bloggers wield the newfound power of new media, they tangle with the CDC, a scheming vice presidential candidate, and mysterious conspirators who want more than the Oval Office. Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The first novel in a brilliant new Newsflesh trilogy — about an America shattered by a terrible pandemic, and a race for the White House that no one may survive. Available in a tall Premium Edition.

Charles Kerchner, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
I enjoyed it much better than I thought I would. A good mixture of zombies and post-apocalyptic with new-age news bloggers. The story didn't have any big surprises which was disappointing. The, I'm just trying to get the truth out, got old especially there was no acknowledgement until the very end that it was the truth as they saw it. Also it seemed the characters were much younger than 24 and tried too hard to justify that blogging and internet news was the only right one (but I agree that traditional news has huge faults).

Zombies! a fast paced novel, set in the future, compelling characters and a fairly sensible explanation of the cause of a world wide zombie pandemic beginning in 2014. Love the idea that responsible respectable journalism is in the hands of bloggers in 2039. I read the whole trilogy with great enjoyment.
