Spoiler-Free

Just finished Deadline by Mira Grant (also known as Seanan McGuire); the first book in the trilogy, Feed, was fantastic - even made me cry, which never happens. Deadline is equally fantastic, with a whole big bunch of WTF and Holy Shit. If you haven't bought them yet, GO DO IT!

What are they about? The trilogy is a thriller with politics and zombies (and if you're not big on zombies, it's ok - they're more of a background fact of life in this world than the main focus). The zombie apocalypse has happened, and the world is dealing. The media lied to us, no great surprise, and the bloggers who searched out the truth have become your best news source. The first book introduces us to the Masons and their blog team as they follow a presidential candidate on the campaign trail, and uncover some nasty plots. The second follows the same team as they uncover a conspiracy that makes anything in our world look like a kindergarten fairytale.

I interrupted a very good series when Deadline arrived in my Kindle, and I may just go back and reread both books before I go back to that series because I'm not ready to leave the Masons and their world yet.

If you have read them, please refrain from spoilers in the comments.
