Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn’t seem as fun when you’ve lost as much as he has.

But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news—he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.

Now Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kim Ryser | 1/27/2014

    " I don't even know what to say. I have both too many and too few things to say about this book. The many are all spoilers, and mostly my reactions is !!! and ???? Luckily rather than write some long rant about all the things I don't understand, I'll just move on the the next book and hopefully get all my questions answered. All things considered, this is not quite as good a story as the first book, or as emotionally moving, but it's also not as contained of a story. It doesn't really end so much as pause with a To Be Continued. So it's difficult to judge it on its own. It is incredibly page-turning, actually more so than the first novel. I read this one in two sittings. 300 pages and then a second 300 pages. So, yeah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Celeste_pewter | 1/23/2014

    " Was originally going to give it three stars, but I'll add a star on for the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jake Forbes | 1/22/2014

    " The first Newsflesh was good and volume 2 is better in almost every way. I was a bit wary of Sean as a narrator at first, as his "on camera" persona in FEED is a bit overbearing. Grant does a great job transitioning him to the lead, with a subtler hand in the narration that serves the story and the character. The supporting cast feels more three-dimensional this time around as well. The stakes are bigger too(which is saying a lot). There's a lot of padding here -- extreme repetition of people's reactions to Sean's neuroses, for example -- which makes it easy to skim pages if you're not careful. The themes at play involving truth, fear and security, never really come together in this volume, but the growing conspiracy against an apocalyptic backdrop sure makes for a hell of a compulsive read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ian Burrell | 1/9/2014

    " A compulsive read set in a world where the dead rise up. But this is more than a mere zombie gore fest. The medical explanations seem believable to this layman and the plot, with twists and turns, is convincing. What really hooked me are the sympathetic main characters, some of whom I became attached to in the first book. I'm looking forward to reading the next book. "
