Review: Flesh & Bone (Benny Imura #3) by Jonathan Maberry

Title: Flesh & Bone (Benny Imura #3) by Jonathan Maberry
Author: Jonathan Maberry
Published: September 11th 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Book Description:

Reeling from the tragic events of Dust & Decay, Benny Imura and his friends plunge deep into the zombie-infested wastelands of the great Rot & Ruin. Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong journey through a fierce wilderness that was once America, searching for the jet they saw in the skies months ago. If that jet exists then humanity itself must have survived…somewhere. Finding it is their best hope for having a future and a life worth living.

But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine. They are hunted by fierce animals escaped from zoos and circuses. They must raid zombie-infested towns for food and medical supplies. They discover the very real truth in the old saying: In the Rot & Ruin…everything wants to kill you.

And what is happening to the zombies? Swarms of them are coming from the east, devouring everything in their paths. These zoms are different. Faster, smarter, infinitely more dangerous. Has the zombie plague mutated, or is there something far more sinister behind this new invasion of the living dead?

In Flesh & Bone, Benny Imura, Nix Riley, Lou Chong and Lilah the Lost Girl are pitted against dangers greater than anything they've ever faced. To survive, each of them must rise to become the warriors Tom trained them to be.

My Thoughts:

So far this the best book of the series and I have quite a few reasons why.

So starting off from the events of the last book, for the first time, Benny and his company are all alone without adult supervision. In some sense, they are now somewhat independent as they will have to make decisions on their own. 

Jonathan wasted no time in throwing us in the action this time. I think after 2 book, the world and setting is established solidly that we need not too much stuff so the action and events at the opening of this book is really fantastic, It created already a fast-paced and intense feeling of the book which I really liked.

Then I finally discovered for me, what is one of the best selling of points of Rot & Ruin series is that the author can really create excellent villains. Villains who can affect you by their ideals and you can't help but be "contre" against them in a high level.  

Also as I have said earlier in my previous reviews about this series, the ideals and life lessons written in this book are really good. 

Easy read. Really good pacing of the story and an excellent ending, finally we can somewhat see where the series is going on  and we can see where it might possibly end. I think the end is near? I am not sure.

But over all kudos to this book best one so far. I give it 5 whales



  1. I'm glad you think this is the best book so far! I bought a copy of the first one ages ago but haven't had much of a chance to read it yet. I'm definitely looking forward to it now. :) Lovely review, Dannielle.

  2. wee give it a try, the first one is also good :D -JP

  3. I have sooo many zombie books sitting on my to-read list and this series by Jonathan Maberry is one that I keep coming across time and time again. Maybe it's a sign! Thanks for the great review :)
