Broken Lands Reviews
Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim.
“The Broken Lands were broken indeed.”
There are some theories about these new batch of zoms things unspoken and secretive research with the plague, right from the genesis with patient zero.

This book was everything!! What a great read. Benny and friends have always held a special place in my heart. They are so relatable, funny, caring, badass and more. I liked Gutsy and friends as well, I think they were a nice addition. Don't even get me started on bringing Joe and Sam back. Two very readable characters that play very well off one another. I can't wait for what's next for the group. I have a feeling some significant losses are coming around the corner but I hope I'm wrong.
Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins, she has just buried her mother and someone has returned her mother (who is now a zombie because as a Catholic she was not spiked) to Gutsy's home. Gutsy, along with her friends Spider and Alethea seek to find out ...more
Zombies take over the world
I’m sure some students may like-story involves zombies, zombies with changing viruses & destruction of world. I thought I would like but dragged out for me :(
What the what!? The book has a great mix of old and new characters. And, as true in the original Rot & Ruin series, the characters are deep and complex. I love it!!
Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our present. Loved how it brought Maberry's Joe Ledger and Rot & Ruin characters into the mix. Our guys are often a little too lucky to believe and coincidences abound but the story is never less than exciting and in ...more
I always enjoy spending time in Maberry’s zombie apocalypse. The Rot & Ruin series was a huge hit with my students. This new series will be too. Great read!
Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour because of the hordes of zoms in their path, they uncover a plot to annihilate New Alamo, Texas. (Seriously? Who would name a town New Alamo considering what happened to the Old Alamo?) The author introduces some n ...more
