    ALL the stars to Jonathan Maberry's return to the Rot & Ruin world in book 1 of his brand new series, Broken Lands! I'm so happy he chose to return to this world and to return to some of my favorite characters ever, Benny Imura, Nix, The Lost Girl, Chong, and especially Joe Ledger!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    Oh man, it's incredible to be back in the Rot and Ruin. I mean, not really. This is truly one of the bleakest dystopias I've ever read. But Fire & Ash (the last book in this world) came out when I was a freshman in college, so it's been a while. I was really pleased with the ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    At this point, I think I've read enough post-apocalyptic zombie novels that I could create a shelf just for them. This would be the most fun book on that shelf, but not the best. I really, really enjoyed the world-building. For lack of a better word, the setting had more character t...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Not sure if this was a horror novel or a medium for Jonathan Maberry to express his political views... I got this because I thought Maberry's Joe Ledger series and Pine Deep trilogy were some of the best writing I've read. I had not read the "Rot and Ruin" series because it was hail...

    I've read one other book by Maberry - it was a book of short stories that featured a private detective who was a werewolf. I enjoyed them, so when this first in a series book was offered as daily deal on Audible, I bought it. It was not as good. It is a YA series with a lot of teens (1...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    *Deep breath* This book was awesome! I have read maybe one of the Rot and Ruin books and one of the Joe Ledger series. When I picked this up, I didn't realize it was somewhat of a continuation. Memorable characters, action, a strong teenage Latina (who is also bi) protagonist, and a...

    Wow. In this new series set in the world of Benny Imura, we meet some new characters and some surprising ones. Joe Ledger continues to be the entertaining badass that he has always been. Benny and friends now are more saviors than kids who are learning how to defend themselves and ...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Enjoyed the series "Rot and Ruin" so this continuing adventure for Benny and his friends is a delight. New characters and new zombies that make one not put down the book for a breath occurs. Jonathan Maberry knows how to tell a story. Does it stand alone? With the continuing tale invol...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    An extraordinary trek continues in the world I may zombie apocalypse. The world of rock and run continues in a new series. Great cast of characters and definitely hard-core action and violence with zombies and bad people. There will always be secret to balls of government people doing ...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    Oh man, it's incredible to be back in the Rot and Ruin. I mean, not really. This is truly one of the bleakest dystopias I've ever read. But Fire & Ash (the last book in this world) came out when I was a freshman in college, so it's been a while. I was really pleased with the ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim. ?The Broken Lands were broken indeed...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    At this point, I think I've read enough post-apocalyptic zombie novels that I could create a shelf just for them. This would be the most fun book on that shelf, but not the best. I really, really enjoyed the world-building. For lack of a better word, the setting had more character t...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Not sure if this was a horror novel or a medium for Jonathan Maberry to express his political views... I got this because I thought Maberry's Joe Ledger series and Pine Deep trilogy were some of the best writing I've read. I had not read the "Rot and Ruin" series because it was hail...

    I've read one other book by Maberry - it was a book of short stories that featured a private detective who was a werewolf. I enjoyed them, so when this first in a series book was offered as daily deal on Audible, I bought it. It was not as good. It is a YA series with a lot of teens (1...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    *Deep breath* This book was awesome! I have read maybe one of the Rot and Ruin books and one of the Joe Ledger series. When I picked this up, I didn't realize it was somewhat of a continuation. Memorable characters, action, a strong teenage Latina (who is also bi) protagonist, and a...

    Wow. In this new series set in the world of Benny Imura, we meet some new characters and some surprising ones. Joe Ledger continues to be the entertaining badass that he has always been. Benny and friends now are more saviors than kids who are learning how to defend themselves and ...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Enjoyed the series "Rot and Ruin" so this continuing adventure for Benny and his friends is a delight. New characters and new zombies that make one not put down the book for a breath occurs. Jonathan Maberry knows how to tell a story. Does it stand alone? With the continuing tale invol...

    An extraordinary trek continues in the world I may zombie apocalypse. The world of rock and run continues in a new series. Great cast of characters and definitely hard-core action and violence with zombies and bad people. There will always be secret to balls of government people doing ...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    I can scarely say enough good things about Maberry's Joe Ledger series or the Rot & Ruin series. And now he gives us a new series set in the Rot & Ruin with some of our favorite characters, introducing new characters, and continuing the storyline that all began with Patient Zer...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Jon Maberry is one of my favorite authors. From his early horror work to the stunning JOE LEDGER series. And while I have read and enjoyed his YA fiction in the past, this book just failed to capture my attention. Don't get me wrong this is an excellent book.... if you're 15....

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    ALL the stars to Jonathan Maberry's return to the Rot & Ruin world in book 1 of his brand new series, Broken Lands! I'm so happy he chose to return to this world and to return to some of my favorite characters ever, Benny Imura, Nix, The Lost Girl, Chong, and especially Joe Ledger!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    Oh man, it's incredible to be back in the Rot and Ruin. I mean, not really. This is truly one of the bleakest dystopias I've ever read. But Fire & Ash (the last book in this world) came out when I was a freshman in college, so it's been a while. I was really pleased with the ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    An extraordinary trek continues in the world I may zombie apocalypse. The world of rock and run continues in a new series. Great cast of characters and definitely hard-core action and violence with zombies and bad people. There will always be secret to balls of government people doing ...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Jon Maberry is one of my favorite authors. From his early horror work to the stunning JOE LEDGER series. And while I have read and enjoyed his YA fiction in the past, this book just failed to capture my attention. Don't get me wrong this is an excellent book.... if you're 15....

    Can I add more stars?! I was nervous about going back to Rot and Ruin. Could Broken Lands really be as good as that? A hundred times yes! Gutsy Gomez is my kinda girl. She, Spider, and Alethea are great characters - who doesn?t love tiaras and rain boots? The backstory of the virus i...

    I rather have read a direct continuation to the Rot & Ruin-series than a new story line next to the old. I wasn?t deeply fond of the new main character and the new angels of zombies, that at least for my taste are too extraordinary despite being a big fan of the genre of zombies....

    ALL the stars to Jonathan Maberry's return to the Rot & Ruin world in book 1 of his brand new series, Broken Lands! I'm so happy he chose to return to this world and to return to some of my favorite characters ever, Benny Imura, Nix, The Lost Girl, Chong, and especially Joe Ledger!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    Oh man, it's incredible to be back in the Rot and Ruin. I mean, not really. This is truly one of the bleakest dystopias I've ever read. But Fire & Ash (the last book in this world) came out when I was a freshman in college, so it's been a while. I was really pleased with the ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim. ?The Broken Lands were broken indeed...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    At this point, I think I've read enough post-apocalyptic zombie novels that I could create a shelf just for them. This would be the most fun book on that shelf, but not the best. I really, really enjoyed the world-building. For lack of a better word, the setting had more character t...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Not sure if this was a horror novel or a medium for Jonathan Maberry to express his political views... I got this because I thought Maberry's Joe Ledger series and Pine Deep trilogy were some of the best writing I've read. I had not read the "Rot and Ruin" series because it was hail...

    I've read one other book by Maberry - it was a book of short stories that featured a private detective who was a werewolf. I enjoyed them, so when this first in a series book was offered as daily deal on Audible, I bought it. It was not as good. It is a YA series with a lot of teens (1...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    *Deep breath* This book was awesome! I have read maybe one of the Rot and Ruin books and one of the Joe Ledger series. When I picked this up, I didn't realize it was somewhat of a continuation. Memorable characters, action, a strong teenage Latina (who is also bi) protagonist, and a...

    Wow. In this new series set in the world of Benny Imura, we meet some new characters and some surprising ones. Joe Ledger continues to be the entertaining badass that he has always been. Benny and friends now are more saviors than kids who are learning how to defend themselves and ...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Enjoyed the series "Rot and Ruin" so this continuing adventure for Benny and his friends is a delight. New characters and new zombies that make one not put down the book for a breath occurs. Jonathan Maberry knows how to tell a story. Does it stand alone? With the continuing tale invol...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    An extraordinary trek continues in the world I may zombie apocalypse. The world of rock and run continues in a new series. Great cast of characters and definitely hard-core action and violence with zombies and bad people. There will always be secret to balls of government people doing ...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    At this point, I think I've read enough post-apocalyptic zombie novels that I could create a shelf just for them. This would be the most fun book on that shelf, but not the best. I really, really enjoyed the world-building. For lack of a better word, the setting had more character t...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Not sure if this was a horror novel or a medium for Jonathan Maberry to express his political views... I got this because I thought Maberry's Joe Ledger series and Pine Deep trilogy were some of the best writing I've read. I had not read the "Rot and Ruin" series because it was hail...

    I've read one other book by Maberry - it was a book of short stories that featured a private detective who was a werewolf. I enjoyed them, so when this first in a series book was offered as daily deal on Audible, I bought it. It was not as good. It is a YA series with a lot of teens (1...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    *Deep breath* This book was awesome! I have read maybe one of the Rot and Ruin books and one of the Joe Ledger series. When I picked this up, I didn't realize it was somewhat of a continuation. Memorable characters, action, a strong teenage Latina (who is also bi) protagonist, and a...

    Wow. In this new series set in the world of Benny Imura, we meet some new characters and some surprising ones. Joe Ledger continues to be the entertaining badass that he has always been. Benny and friends now are more saviors than kids who are learning how to defend themselves and ...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Enjoyed the series "Rot and Ruin" so this continuing adventure for Benny and his friends is a delight. New characters and new zombies that make one not put down the book for a breath occurs. Jonathan Maberry knows how to tell a story. Does it stand alone? With the continuing tale invol...

    ALL the stars to Jonathan Maberry's return to the Rot & Ruin world in book 1 of his brand new series, Broken Lands! I'm so happy he chose to return to this world and to return to some of my favorite characters ever, Benny Imura, Nix, The Lost Girl, Chong, and especially Joe Ledger!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    Oh man, it's incredible to be back in the Rot and Ruin. I mean, not really. This is truly one of the bleakest dystopias I've ever read. But Fire & Ash (the last book in this world) came out when I was a freshman in college, so it's been a while. I was really pleased with the ne...
