I've read the 1st three books. This series is really good. We see Benny grow up from a whinny little kid to the man he suppose to be. Nix has always been firece fight no none sense. lilla (the lost girl) gets to finally connect to people and actually care for them, but don't be fooled she'll quiet you in a heart beat if your bitten. Tommy Benny's brother was always looking out from he's kid brother and sees him finally become his own person.
I gave it a 4 out of 5 because of the last book i read

I absolutely love this series. I found the first book, "Rot and Ruin" in my middle schools' book fair. That was three years ago. During those three years, I've collected the rest of the series and have reread all of the books atleast twenty times since. Once I pick up the book, I can't place it back down until I'm finished (Yes, it's that good.) Rot and Ruin is a very eye-opening book and it has honestly changed the way I look at things, it had made me a more open minded person. I would definite ...more

This book is really good for anyone who enjoy zombies with a dark twist. The main character Benny lives in a village in California after the wold has been over run with zombies most people call the night the zombies call "First Night".
Benny lives in the village with his brother Tom an his friends Chong,Nix,and Morgie.

I am a librarian who was looking for a good zombie series for young adults. Just finished the first book in this series and have started the second. This is a great series for YA, with good writing, strong characterization and, of course, lots of zombie action. I'm enjoying it so much, I'm buying the rest of the books in this series for my library.

I love the Rot and Ruin series. A coming of age story in a post apocalyptic world that is character based and delves into the main characters emotions and realization of how to survive in the world they live in. Outstanding story that continues in Dust and Decay and Flesh and Bone
