Waiting on Wednesday: Blackout by Mira Grant

There's not a synopsis or cover picture for Blackout yet, so I can't post those this week, but I'd figure the cover will fit in with the other two of the Newsflesh Trilogy.

Mira Grant
June 7, 2012

I've already reviewed both Feed and Deadline (with as few spoilers as possible), and it's fair to say that these two books have been my favourite books of 2010 and 2011 respectively.  They're zombie books. but they're about what happens after the zombie apocalypse.  How society has changed and people have adapted to 30 years of the living dead.  Feed's more of a political thriller that follows the Mason siblings (professional bloggers) as they cover the 2040 US Presidential campaign while Deadline really looks at the idea of disease, how it spreads, and what to do when the groups you trust most seem to have betrayed the world.  They're incredibly good.  Shaun and Georgia Mason (named by their adoptive parents for Shaun of the Dead and George Romero) are heroes (and journalists) of the highest order - sacrificing everything to find  the truth and stopping at nothing - even sometimes the bounds of reason - to make sure the truth gets out.

I'm waiting with baited breath for the conclusion of the trilogy and the answers to the questions raised in the oh-so-cliffhangery ending of Deadline.  I was a little tentative about the possibility of a 'second novel slip' in Deadline, but Mira Grant proved me completely wrong, and I'm confident that Blackout will absolutely blow me away.

"Alive or dead, the truth won't rest.  Rise up while you can."
- Georgia Mason
