Description

Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has. But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.

Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

Review quote

"Intelligent and exciting...raises the bar for the genre."--Telegraph on Deadline "It's a novel with as much brains as heart, and both are filling and delicious."--The A. V. Club on Feed "Intelligent and intense, a thinking-person's post-apocalyptic zombie thriller set in a fully-realized future that is both fascinating and horrifying to behold."--John Joseph Adams on Feed "The story starts with a bang as corruption, mystery, danger and excitement abound."--RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Feed "While there's plenty of zombie mayhem, political snark, and pointedly funny observations here, the heart of this book is about human relationships, which are still the most important thing in the world...even in a world where you might have to shoot the person you love most in the head, just to stop them from biting off your face."--Locus on Feed "Wry and entertaining."--NPR Books on Blackout "Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Deadline "OK, all of you readers who want something weighty and yet light, campy and yet smart, horror with heart, a summer beach read that will stay in your head and whisper to you "what if," Deadline is just what you are looking for."--RT Book Reviews on Deadline "I can't wait for the next book."--N.K. Jemisin on Feed "Gripping, thrilling, and brutal... Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported."--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Feed "Feed is a proper thriller with zombies. Grant doesn't get carried away with describing her world or the virus. She's clearly thought both out brilliantly, but she doesn't let it get in the way of a taut, well-written story."--SFX on Feed "Astonishing ... a fascinating exploration of the future."--New York Times
