Series: Newsflesh #2
Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has. But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead. Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.
For those of you who don’t know, Mira Grant is actually Seanan McGuire author of the popular October Daye Series. I loved Feed her first book in this zombie trilogy, and I totally flipped for Deadline. The pace was much faster, the stakes much higher and the ending..lets just say I haven’t fully recovered. This has to be one of the best mid-trilogy books I’ve ever read. The protagonist Shaun Mason, who in the first book was a happy go lucky dare devil, must come to to terms with the loss of his sister and heading up the Newsflash team. I will be first in line to get the third book in this trilogy..Blackout.
