But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. NOW, twenty years after the Rising, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives-the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them. The Newsflesh trilogy boxed set includes Feed, Deadline, and Blackout.

Our customer reviews
Feed: This takes the current wave of zombie fiction into a much more interesting space. With realistic elements of technological media capabilities and the sardonic reality of US political cogitations, Ms Grant provides a story that is both truthful and emotive, while still having the humour and 'ick' factor of a zombie tale. Deadline: Grant continues with her tongue-in-cheek wry humour in the second book. The first was political satire meets gross zombie action. This one, in which the action widens and the conspiracy spreads, allows us to meet many of the characters who were peripheral in the first, and care for them as much as we do for George and Shaun. It is however, merely a stepping stone to the third and final part of the story. Blackout: The twists and turns of "Feed" and "Deadline" come to fruition in a deliciously delicate yet explosive final volume. I truly don't want to give away any spoilers so I'll limit myself to saying the following: When the one phrase you want to be able to quote from a text is something that has not one but two ideas in it that are generally considered distasteful, and you find it both hysterically funny and cleverly written, then you know that the world you have been inhabiting while reading it, seems real.show moreby Jodie Garrett
