Dust & Decay

Book 2, Rot & Ruin

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Six months have passed since the terrifying battle with Charlie Pink-eye and the Motor City Hammer in the zombie-infested mountains of the Rot & Ruin. It’s also six months since Benny Imura and Nix Riley saw something in the air that changed their lives. Now, after months of rigorous training with Benny’s zombie-hunter brother Tom, Benny and Nix are ready to leave their home forever and search for a better future. Lilah the Lost Girl and Benny’s best friend Lou Chong are going with them.

Sounds easy. Sounds wonderful. Except that everything that can go wrong does. Before they can even leave there is a shocking zombie attack in town. But as soon as they step into the Rot & Ruin they are pursued by the living dead, wild animals, insane murderers and the horrors of Gameland –where teenagers are forced to fight for their lives in the zombie pits. Worst of all…could the evil Charlie Pink-eye still be alive?

In the great Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you. Everything…and not everyone in Benny’s small band of travelers will make it out alive.

Customer Reviews


By far the best zombie book or book in general I have ever read, no book can match Dust And Decay nor it's pre mate Rot And Ruin and must buy for any major book fan can't wait for part 3!!!!!!!


Buy both Rot and Ruin and Dust and Decay as they are both incredible reads. Won't be able to put them down.

Dust and Decay

I've rated many books I've read but never have I commented on them before. Jonathan Maberry was unknown to me until I started searching for "zombie" related books. I just want to say that he is a great author and I'm glad I found his books. This book and the book that precedes it were tales I couldn't put down. I'd suggest anyone that likes zombies but dislikes the typical run and hide stories, these are definitely the books to read. Thank you Jonathan Maberry.
