Waiting on Wednesday: Dust and Decay

This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.

I'm waiting on:
Dust & Decay
OMGosh!!!!! I knew there was going to be a sequel to Rot & Ruin, but I hadn't seen anything about it.  Then bamm! there's the cover and the release date! I WANT! I WANT! I WANT!
It comes out August 30th.

And what an awesome cover.  I'm loving it big time!

For those that haven't read Rot & Ruin I wrote a review and so did a student on Team Owl.  Check them out.

Summary From Goodreads
Six months have passed since the terrifying battle with Charlie Pink-eye and the Motor City Hammer in the zombie-infested mountains of the Rot & Ruin. It’s also six months since Benny Imura and Nix Riley saw something in the air that changed their lives. Now, after months of rigorous training with Benny’s zombie-hunter brother Tom, Benny and Nix are ready to leave their home forever and search for a better future. Lilah the Lost Girl and Benny’s best friend Lou Chong are going with them.

Sounds easy. Sounds wonderful. Except that everything that can go wrong does. Before they can even leave there is a shocking zombie attack in town. But as soon as they step into the Rot & Ruin they are pursued by the living dead, wild animals, insane murderers and the horrors of Gameland –where teenagers are forced to fight for their lives in the zombie pits. Worst of all…could the evil Charlie Pink-eye still be alive?
In the great Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you. Everything…and not everyone in Benny’s small band of travelers will make it out alive.


  1. DUST & DECAY was so much fun to write. And there's a kind of 'book-within-the-book' in that pages from Nix's Journal are included between some of the chapters.

    I'm just about to start working on FLESH & BONE, the third (of 4) books in the series.

    As for the cover...I guess you know which character that is....

  2. I can't wait for this book!!! I loved Rot & Ruin. And I LOVE the cover for this!

  3. I won a copy of Rot & Ruin but I haven't read it yet. Sounds awesome though and I'm looking forward to getting started.

  4. I've never heard of this series. I marked as "to read" on Goodreads. Sounds interesting! Thanks.
