If you've ever wondered whether the pen is mightier than the desiccated corpse, this book is for you. Georgia and Shaun Mason are bloggers in a world where politicians use the zombie apocalypse to manipulate people and push their own agendas. They think they're ready to face anything, alive or dead, in their quest for the truth. They have no idea what they've gotten themselves into.
Now, for the first time, Mira Grant's complete New York Times bestselling NEWSFLESH trilogy is available in a single volume.
"Alive or dead, the truth won't rest. My name is Georgia Mason, and I am begging you. Rise up while you can."
The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.
Now, twenty years after the Rising, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them.
The Rising includes Feed, Deadline, and Blackout.
