Countdown ~ Mira Grant

< OK >

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.
