Waiting on Wednesday (76): Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel by Jonathan Maberry

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel by Jonathan Maberry
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publish Date: October 25, 2011

Publisher's Description
A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang…but a bite.

Why Jessica want to read this: It's a zombie novel.  Do I really need to explain more?

  23. Neri - Oooh...first zombie book. Hmmm....so hard, so hard. My favorite YA Zombie book is Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel. It comes out in October. And while not "technically" zombies I still think it counts - The Strain Trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan - books 1 and 2 are out, 3 is coming soon. It's a vampire book, but the infected are basically zombies instead of vampires. So creepy it gave me the heebie jeebies. Dearly, Departed is a much lighter read than Strain though.
