Zombies, Conspiracies, and Bloggers – Oh My!

I was never a zombie fan when I was growing up.  Maybe it was because I grew up on a small farm and I learned early on the life-death-compost cycle of life.  Scary movies?  Not a chance.

Then…

Then, I started reading Seanan McGuire.  Her writing led me to her alter-ego Mira Grant and the Newsflesh trilogy (Feed, Deadline & Blackout). I just finished the last book in the trilogy – Blackout.

When will you rise?

AND I WANT MORE!

She has created a world where humanity struggles to survive in a world where the dead are walking.  Human nature is revealed at its very best and worst, bringing the readers along for a tumultuous ride. Mira Grant never lets up on the throttle as she lead us on the merry chase through this new world.

Truth is a constant theme through the series.  Mira Grant adeptly weaves a complicated pattern of personal truths.  She never lets a thread go astray in this tapestry.

The story arc is completed, truths revealed and I’m left wanting more.  At the end of the day, the question is – when will you rise?

About Leila

I hail from the East and view the world as my playground. I'm opinionated. My dog is my co-pilot, but my cat navigates better. I'm only limited by my imagination. While there are terrible things that happen in the world I am responsible for making good things happen where I live, and that affects the world at large making it a better place.

  1. Like you, I wasn’t a real zombie fan for a long time, but I am now! Zombie stories are interesting! I will have to check these out. I loved Day Seven! :)

    • It’s funny how our viewpoints change as we experience more. To quote Mira? ‘Zombies are love.’

      I’m glad you enjoyed Day Seven. I have a prequel in the works that will be out in a bit. :)

  2. Thank you very much. I am a zombie fan. I shall check it out.
