Waiting on Wednesday: Fire and Ash (Benny Imura #4) by Jonathan Maberry

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. This week I've picked the fourth and final book in a series, yet I haven't read the third one yet.  The reason I've chosen this is because I've decided to wait until the last one comes out and read the last 2 right in a row.  I often wish I'd found series when they were done, instead of having to wait a year or so in between each book.  And so I'm trying to make myself kind of feel like that by reading the last two in the series together.  My book this week is Fire and Ash (Benny Imura #4) by Jonathan Maberry.  Here is the synopsis from Goodreads.com:

Benny Imura and his friends have made it to Sanctuary, they've found the jet and they've discovered that civilization is struggling to regain its foothold in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Scientists are on the verge of finding a cure for the zombie plague. It should be time for celebration, but it's not. Benny's best friend, Chong, has been infected by an arrow dipped in the flesh of a zombie and he hovers between life and death and Dr McReady, a researcher who may have the critical formula for a cure, has gone missing. So Benny convinces Captain Ledger to mount a search and rescue mission to find the doctor and help Chong. But with the Reapers still pursuing their plan to turn all zombies into super-fast shock troops even if they can save Chong, can they save themselves? In the fourth book of the thrilling and emotionally charged Rot & Ruin series, the battle to end all battles is about to begin...


I'm so ready to find out what happens next after book two when we lost a beloved character!  It will be interesting to see how it goes on, and also to see if there can be a cure to solve all the issues.  Because I got to meet this author at BEA, I of course have to share that picture with you here.


My zombie love has grown so much with watching The Walking Dead, where once I wasn't really a fan of zombies, or at least not a big fan.  Now, I'm pretty excited to read any book or watch any show about them.

So tell me, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. You know, I haven't read any of this series, and I keep seeing them. I must change that. Sounds awesome. Great pick.

  2. I haven't heard of this series. I'm with you, though, sometimes I wait until all of the books are out before I start a series. When I don't, I always have to re-read the previous book in order to remember what's going on. I read way to many books in a year to keep plot points in my head.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following back. ;)

    1. I haven't been able to wait until most series are out, but now I'm kind of hoping that I can do it more often. If I don't get e-galleys or ARCs that get me going on the first one, then I end up not being able to wait really. Thanks for stopping by and following back!

    1. I didn't hear that, but I've always thought it would make a great movie! So excited to hear! With the popularity of The Walking Dead, it makes sense!

  5. I'm not familiar with this series at all but I've heard good things about it so maybe I will check it out once all the books are released.
