Meet The Living!

The New York Times bestselling Warm Bodies Series has captivated readers in twenty-five languages, inspiring a major film and transcending the zombie genre to become something "poetic" (Library Journal) "highly original" (Seattle Times) and "ultimately moving" (Time Out London). Now the story of a dead man's search for life reaches its conclusion on a scale both epic and intimate.

Before he was a flesh-eating corpse, R was something worse. He remembers it all now, a life of greed and apathy more destructive than any virus, and he sees only one path to redemption: he must fight the forces he helped create. But what can R, Julie, and their tiny gang of fugitives do against the creeping might of the Axiom Group, the bizarre undead corporation that's devouring what's left of America?

It's time for a road trip.

No more flyover country. This time they'll face the madness on the ground, racing their RV across the wastelands as tensions rise and bonds unravel—because R isn't the only one hiding painful secrets. Everyone is on their own desperate search: for a kidnapped daughter, a suicidal mother, and an abused little boy with a gift that could save humanity... if humanity can convince him it's worth saving.

All roads lead home, to a final confrontation with the plague and its shareholders. But this is a monster that guns can't kill. A battle only one weapon can win...

A list of the top 5 things a reader would need to survive the zombie apocalypse



1. Blood. You need blood in your body. You need this to survive pretty much any scenario, really, and a zombie apocalypse is no different. Whenever possible, keep your blood in your body.

  1. Emotional resilience. If you have a breakdown every time someone you love gets killed—or you have to kill someone you love—you're not going to last long. Grow some leather around that gooey heart—but keep a little soft core just in case you need it later!
  2. Disassociation. Learn it, love it, use it—but remember how to turn it off! The numb invincibility of detachment can become highly addictive. There may come a day when you want to feel everything in all its dangerous heat. Step back from the fire when you need to, but don't forget how to come back.
  3. A sense of humor. Zombies are ridiculous. The world is ridiculous. You are ridiculous. When it seems like the entire universe is conspiring to destroy you, laugh at it for being such a petty hater. Get a life, universe.

5. Hope. Hold onto it tighter than any shotgun or chainsaw. There is no stronger weapon than the will to keep fighting.

I am unfamiliar with this series, but now I want to read it after reading about the first two books. The cover is great and this synopsis sounds like it will tie this series up nicely. Good luck with your novel.

To be honest it was the cover that caught my eye and made me stop to check out what the book was about. I have not read the first 3 books in this series however after reading about it in this spotlight I am intrigued and believe I would enjoy this series immensely.

Honestly, what caught my eye was Isaac Marion written in large letters. I think he's a brilliant writer and I love this series. I can't wait for this finale.
