Rot & RuinTitle: Rot & Ruin 
Author: Jonathan Maberry
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release: October 5, 2010
Pages: 458
Series: Benny Imura #1
In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.

After receiving the second book in this series for review, I went out and picked up this book so I could start the series. Fast forward to now, after I've read the book and completely enjoyed it. To be honest, this was my first zombie book I've read and I was not disappointed by it. But I am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to anything remotely frightening. I now shut and lock my bedroom door before I go to bed and I am considering obtaining a carpet coat just in case. The story itself was very fast paced, full of twists and turns that were completely unpredictable and informative on the post apocalyptic world that the characters live in. The writing was so descriptive that it actually scared me. I now have a fear of zombies and the Apocalypse.  This book gets a 5/5 for being an unpredictable, zombie filled, thrill ride of a book.
