By Mira Grant
The gripping finale to the science fiction zombie-thriller Newsflesh trilogy. The truth won't rest, and neither will the dead . . .
The year is 2041, and Shaun Mason is having a bad day. Everyone he knows is dead or in hiding. The world is doing its best to end itself for the second time. The Centre for Disease Control is out to get him. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, he must face mad scientists, zombie bears and rogue government agencies before the conspiracy that killed Georgia manages to kill the only thing he has left of her - the truth.
And if there's one thing he knows is true in this post-zombie, post-resurrection America, it's this: Things can always get worse.

The conclusion to the Newsflesh series is both satisfying and utterly believable. It's an impressive feat that Grant manages to make the humans more frightening than the zombies, and she never steps a foot wrong in her portrayal of the darkest facets of humanity. Haunting, thought provoking, and likely to keep this reviewer up at night for a while, if you buy one book this year, make it Blackout. — TheBookBag.co.uk
