I don't want to say much - don't want to spoil anything for the vast multitudes who read this. But, if you haven't read Grant's Newsflesh trilogy - go, read. It's a refreshing take on zombies, and will appeal even to those who don't like zombie books. This series is really more of a political thriller - the zombies are just the vehicle that drives the story. And, for those who don't want to read a series until it is complete - Blackout finishes the series. Very highly recommended.
