Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry
This book picks up 7 months after the end of the book Rot & Ruin. Tom and Benny and Nix brought Lilah, the Lost Girl back to town and she has been living with the Chongs, and Tom has been training Benny, Morgie, Chong and Nix in Sammurai and Zombie hunting and surviving skills.
Tom, Benny and Nix plan to leave town and go east in search of the jumbo jet they saw and the civilization it might represent. Chong goes with for the first night to see them off - or at least that was the plan. In reality, they cannot leave without confronting Gametown, where children are tossed into pits to fight the zoms while adults place bets on it. Once again, we are faced with the question of who the real monsters are - and it is not the zombies.
This book is very intense, filled with action, mystery and a bit of romance.
I hope the author continues this series.
