Countdown ~ Mira Grant
A Newsflesh Novella
A prequel to the Newsflesh trilogy
Very short ~ a mere 65 pages.
Well constructed, neatly interlinked vignettes giving background to The Rising.
I read this after #1 & #2 of the trilogy ... and I think that is when it was released. I think it sits well here even though it is a prequel. It adds depth to the Zombie saga even though most of the information about the release of the virus had come though in Feed and Deadline.
Maybe this was just a titbit to feed the hungry hoards of rampaging zombies eagerly awaiting the release of #3 Blackout.
