Book Review: Flesh and Bone by Jonathan Maberry

Jan 05, 2013

On their journey through the Rot and Ruin, Benny and his friends encounter villains worse than zombies. Kidzworld has the book review of Flesh and Bone by Jonathan Maberry.

In Tom's Absence

In this third installment of the Rot and Ruin series, Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong must carry on their journey without Benny's brother - a fierce but kind warrior and zombie hunter - Tom. But Tom's death has turned the group against each other. Nix has reverted inside herself, no longer the loving girlfriend that Benny once knew. And Benny is hearing voices - Tom's voice to be exact.

Evil Remains

The group may have defeated Charlie Pink Eye, Preacher Jack and all of their violent cohorts at Gameland, but that does not mean they're in the clear. Evil still lurks in the Rot and Ruin, and we're not talking about the zombies.

The Reapers

When the group saves a young girl from being eaten by the zoms, Lilah goes in search of her missing family. In her travels she encounters a group of people called Reapers, who have established a new faith in the darkness. They believe that it's God's will to turn the Earth over to the zoms, thereby "opening red mouths in the flesh of every man, woman and child." In order to escape death at the hands of these religious nutbars, the friends must be the first to locate Sanctuary, a safe community that is actively seeking a cure for the zombie virus. But one of the four won't make it there in one piece.

The Bottom Line

Flesh and Bone is yet another amazing story of zombies, survival and the power of friendship. Jonathan Maberry's tales never seem to disappoint. Fans of zombie books, post-apocalyptic books, sci-fi, fantasy and horror will all appreciate this series. But we suggest you start with the first two books: Rot and Ruin and Dust and Decay.
