In the land of the dead... searching for the key to life.
Benny Imura and his friends are reeling from the tragic events of Wawona and the second Gameland, but there’s no time to stop and mourn fallen comrades. Survival in the great Rot and Ruin requires movement, and so, with heavy hearts, Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong continue their quest to find the jet they saw in the skies months ago. If that jet exists, then humanity itself must have survived... somewhere. Finding it is their best hope for having a future and a life worth living.
But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine. The zoms seem to be mutating in terrifying ways that could change everything Benny and his friends know about surviving among the walking dead. And even worse, a death cult has arisen that is gathering new followers as a frightening rate and is devoted to sending every living person in the Rot and Ruin into the waiting arms of death.
New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry returns to the gripping apocalyptic future of Rot & Ruin to deliver another adventure in the spirit that made Booklist say, "When the zombie apocalypse comes down, I want him on my team."
