Great series, can't wait for the third!
This turned out to be a great listen. I have to admit the first few chapters of Rot & Ruin almost made me stop listening. The story is through the eyes of a kid and how he grows up post zombie apocalypse, so it kinda put me off. But it definitely picks up and even the narration got better.. So by the time I got through it I had to pick up Dust and Decay right away.
So that's why, for me at least, the story gets 4 stars and not 5 because of the kid gloves on the story, but on Wikipedia its supposed to be for "young adults".
I wanted the story to push more, more east (where they are trying to get to) and more growing up, faster. The love story parts takes *forever*, I think the younger readers would like a little faster hitting of the bases there too. Also, when are they gonna get some real weapons instead of the wooden swords! After the first book no way they'd go out there _again_ with wooden swords! Com'on Mr. Maberry!
Dr Skilz and J-Dog, good stuff! Chong really made me mad though. Great characters and skilled writing won the day.

Hutchison's narration (once again) is excellent!

DUST & DECAY (Benny Imura #2) is even better than the captivating ROT & RUIN!
It’s rare to come across a sequel that is as good as it predecessor and even more rare for one to surpass the original, but Jonathan Maberry does just that with DUST & DECAY. In this thrilling second installment, Mayberry gives us even more emotion, more danger, more action, more zoms and more death. Yes some major beloved characters do die… it’s all very shocking really and a read not to be missed! I cannot wait till the release of book #3 FLESH & BONE; which promises to be another gripping journey in the highly addictive Benny Imura zombie series.
