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

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Breaking the Spine and serves to showcase those books we’re not so patiently waiting to arrive!

This post is either very early or very late compared to my usual posting time.  Tonight I get to dance like a crazy person to Panic! at the Disco and drool over Brendon Urie enjoy a night out.  Since we moved to the ‘burbs, we don’t often get out to do fun things like seeing concerts during the middle of the week, so this is going to be fun.

You know what else is fun?  Zombies.

 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.

I spent a good chuck of Sunday night’s The Walking Dead premiere covering my eyes so I didn’t have to watch the gory bits.  This sounds like a nice, wonderful, creepy zombie tale with the added benefit of not having pictures so I get to imagine the level of goriness right for me.  After reading an unusual take on zombies, I’m ready for more willing flesh-eating undead.  Though I have to admit, those are pretty nice nails for a zombie.
