Waiting on Wednesday (#2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week:



Fire and Ash
by Jonathan Maberry
Series: Benny Imura #4
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Expected publication: August 27th 2013
Genre: Horror, Zombies
Paperback, 448 pages
Pre-Order on Amazon | B&N

Benny Imura and his friends have made it to Sanctuary, they’ve found the jet and they’ve discovered that civilization is struggling to regain its foothold in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Scientists are on the verge of finding a cure for the zombie plague. It should be time for celebration, but it’s not. Benny’s best friend, Chong, has been infected by an arrow dipped in the flesh of a zombie and he hovers between life and death and Dr McReady, a researcher who may have the critical formula for a cure, has gone missing. So Benny convinces Captain Ledger to mount a search and rescue mission to find the doctor and help Chong. But with the Reapers still pursuing their plan to turn all zombies into super-fast shock troops even if they can save Chong, can they save themselves? In the fourth book of the thrilling and emotionally charged Rot & Ruin series, the battle to end all battles is about to begin…

Why I’m waiting…


I fell in love with this series from page one of Rot and Ruin. Jonathan Maberry will always be my first love when it comes to zombie tales. I have read every installment, including the novellas and vignettes. I’m sad to think that this might be the last I will read about Benny Imura and the gang. Fortunately, according to Jonathan Maberry, there are two novellas being published in addition to this fourth installment. Tooth and Nail will be released in July 2013. Fun and Games is expected to be available in July of 2014.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • I haven’t read the first books in this series though I do have them. The cover of the first one is so deliciously creepy, I love it! I hope this one lives up to the bar the rest of the series has set for you. Fabulous choice, and fabulous blog BTW.

    • Thank you, Jenni! I hope you get the chance to read the series. I know how it goes trying to get through all of the books in the TR list! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂
