Waiting on Wednesday #113: Broken Lands by Jonathan Maberry

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Broken Lands
Author:  Jonathan Maberry
Expected Publication Date:  December 11th, 2018

New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry returns to the world of Rot & Ruin with this first novel in a brand-new series that’s more thrilling and filled with exceptionally terrifying adventures.

Ever since her mother’s death, Gabriella “Gutsy” Gomez has spent her days flying under the radar. But when her mother’s undead body is returned to her doorstep from the grave and Gutsy witnesses a pack of ravagers digging up Los Muertos—her mother’s name for the undead—she realizes that life finds you no matter how hard you try to hide from it.

Meanwhile, Benny Imura and his gang set out on a journey to finish what Captain Joe Ledger started: they’re going to find a cure. After what they went through in the Rot and Ruin, they think they’ve seen it all, but as they venture into new and unexplored territory, they soon learn that the zombies they fought before were nothing compared to what they’ll face in the wild beyond the peace and safety of their fortified town.

Oooh! A book about zombies!  I can't wait to dive into this book soon!

  9. For awhile there, I was adamant about not reading too many zombie novels, but like many other things, I changed my mind and find myself more interested in them now. This does sound like it will be a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it when you read it, Ronyell!

  10. Got me curious about Gutsy. I'll be on the lookout for this one.
