In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.

I just got done reading the lost hero by Rick Riordan (another great book) so my expectations were preeettyy high, but I wasn't let down one bit. The description, pace and creativity were amazing, don't skip this one.
I am usually EXTREMELY picky about what books I read for instance I have only found three other books in my life time that I have actually enjoyed. Fulfilled my expectations exponentially. Can't wait to read the rest of them.
This book series is completely unlike anything I have ever read. It's so *real*, which isn't something that you get a whole lot from zombie books. The heroes, with all they've been through...they way they deal with what happens to them. It's relatable. This whole book series is relatable.
Every time I think it couldn't go any deeper into the truth and emotion, every time I think that there couldn't possibly be someone more psycho than the nutjob in front of me, every time I think the hero might make it, every time I think I know where this is headed, Manerry pulls the rug out from under me and catches me by surprise. Every time. There's no filler in these books. Everything has a purpose in the rhythmic chase towards the end. Warrior Smart.
