How I Got It: I own it!

Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn’t seem as fun when you’ve lost as much as he has.But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.
The second part of this series continues the saga.  I love this series.  We get away from the political intrigue, or do we?  As much as I missed Georgia, I really grew to love Shaun in this book.  Even his crazy conversations with Georgia added a great character flaw.  And we get to meet some of the beta bloggers who become alpha bloggers.      I especially loved Maggie and all her crazy teacup bulldogs.  Of course, the conspiracy keeps getting deeper and deeper.  I loved the science involved in this series.  The zombies are scary, but I’m more scared of the humans involved.  I stayed up last night way too late trying to finish this book.  I got to the end and sat in my chair stunned.  I knew there would be a cliffhanger, but good graciousness that was big cliffhanger.  Now I must start Blackout.
