Waiting on Wednesday: Dust & Decay

The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week I'm going horror. Well, sort of. The awesome Benny Imura series by Jonathan Maberry isn't your typical zombie story, so no fear if the George Romero Day of the Dead zombies scare the bejeezus out of you. Pick up the first of this series - Rot & Ruin - and start reading...you'll love it! For my WoW pick, I'm going for the 2nd in the series,

Dust & Decay
By Jonathan Maberry
Pub Date: 8/30/11

Product description from Amazon.com

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.

Oooh, sounds great, right? But man, oh man, August is such a long wait!
