Grant (pseudonymous urban fantasy author Seanan McGuire) continues her postapocalyptic zombie series with this adrenaline-packed, quick-witted tale of medicine and mayhem. It's 2041, a year after Shaun Mason's sister and co-blogger, Georgia, became infected with the zombie virus (in 2010's Feed). After nearly three decades of rampant zombiism, procedures and protocols have evolved to keep humans safe, constrained, and scared. As Shaun struggles to cope with Georgia's death, a doctor from the Centers for Disease Control sets the After the End Times blogging crew to investigating a conspiracy around people with a reservoir condition—a state in which the virus goes live in just one area of the body—and the high death rate among reputable scientists trying to study them. Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans. (June)
