Fire & Ash by Jonathan Maberry [ 5 stars ]

From the Description:

Benny Imura and his friends have found the jet and Sanctuary - but neither is what they expected. Instead of a refuge, Sanctuary is a hospice, and the soldiers who flew the plane seem to be little more than bureaucrats who have given up hope for humanity's future.

With Chong hovering between life and death, clinging to his humanity by a thread, Benny makes a startling discovery: A scientist may have discovered a cure for the zombie plague. Desperate to save Chong, Benny and his friends mount a search-and-rescue mission. But they're not the only ones on the hunt: The Reapers are after the cure too, and they want to use it to wipe mankind off the face of the earth.

With Fire & Ash, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry draws his memorable zombie series to a gory, glorious, and satisfying conclusion.

With all the zombie stuff out there it's hard to find the really great ones. Well, look no further because The Rot & Ruin series is it. You'll find some of your favorite characters from his other work here as well ( Joe Ledger, Iron Mike Sweeney ), also nods to other favorites such as The Walking Dead. One of my favorite series in the zombie universe.

If you haven't picked up this series yet I have to ask,,, Do you live under a rock???? One of the best zombie sets out there! My only criticism for Mr. Maberry would be that it's hard to read with tears in your eyes! Well worth your time, 5 stars.
