The explosive conclusion to the Newsflesh trilogy from New York Times bestseller Mira Grant.
Rise up while you can. -- Georgia Mason
The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising.
The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. The uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made.
Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this:
Things can always get worse.
BLACKOUT is the conclusion to the epic trilogy that began in the Hugo-nominated FEED and the sequel, DEADLINE.

Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) concludes her zombie apocalypse trilogy (Feed; Deadline) with another thoughtful high-energy tale of life and politics among the dead and not-so-dead. Foremost among the latter category is journalist Georgia Mason. After she was infected with the amplified version of the Kellis-Amberlee virus that causes zombiism, Georgia s brother, Shaun, responsibly shot her in the head. Georgia, aka Subject 7c, has been resurrected as a clone by the Centers for Disease Control. As she tries to figure out why she s alive again, Shaun and the rest of the news team, hiding from the corrupt CDC at a mad scientist s lab in Oregon, are tasked with discovering how Shaun became immune to the virus and acquiring one of the new breed of mosquitoes that s spreading it. Zombie attacks, family members in physical and emotional jeopardy, and vast government conspiracies all contribute to a heady tale that reaches a satisfying conclusion.

Another great addition
Great book. Fantastic trilogy!
This is a fantastic series! It is not your everyday zombie book, it has emotion, depth, evil, corruption and a bit of sci-fi science. It's what happens when people in power get greedy, those that suffer the consequences, and how adaptation to new social norms conflict with what has been engrained into our DNA.
It's a must read series, spooky in parts, sad in others with a bit of humor tucked in for good measure. Excellent!
I loved this series!
I loved this series, but I am sad I have no more stories coming to look forward to. Maybe these books will be made into movies :)
