Synopsis:

“Shaun and Georgia are orphans of the Rising, the cataclysmic event which left the world reeling in the aftermath of the zombie uprising. Adopted by the Masons and raised in the strange world of the post-Rising media, they’ve spent their lives chasing the next big story, the one that will allow them to break into the big leagues once and for all. Now, in Senator Peter Ryman’s run for the Presidency of the United States, they’ve finally found it.

All they have to do is survive until the election.

In a world filled with the constant threat of both the living and the living dead, it will be all that Shaun and Georgia can do to keep themselves in one piece. Accompanied by the rest of their blogging team, Senator Ryman’s staff, and a whole lot of caffeine, they might succeed…or they might finally answer the big question of their post-Rising world: When will you rise?”

Feed by Mira Grant

Mira Grant knows how to write a fascinating tale of people surviving the unthinkable. She excels at capturing the complex emotions of horrific situations and creating characters that are extremely real. This is true of the Mason siblings, especially Georgia. In Georgia, readers will find a wry sense of humor and a pragmatic and unapologetic approach to this new life. Her pride as an independent reporter, one who tells the true story no matter what the risk, is not only admirable but what helps drive the story. Her consideration for the news also gives readers one of the most powerful scenes one will read in a horror novel.

 

Feed is not just another horror novel however. With elements of political thrillers, there is a crossover appeal for those who might shy away from the idea of a book about zombies. Intense, thought-provoking, scary, and yet very poignant, Feed is not just for the Halloween season but perfect for any time one wants a fantastic story.

    I love this book so much! The ending killed me. Just killed me. I want to reread the series but I need to emotionally prepare myself.

      I will get to the rest of the series eventually. I thought the ending was so well-done. And powerful. Holy cow.

    OK, I’ve heard really good things about FEED. And as much as I enjoy reading paranormal (witches especially), I’ve never gotten into the whole zombie thing. However, your words make me think that I might try this book. Other elements are very interesting. 🙂

      I really enjoyed it. Plus, it is so much more than a zombie novel. I hope you give it a chance and like it as much as I did!
