Book Reviews: Feed + Magic Bleeds

Feed by Mira Grant

Not since ‘World War Z’ has there been such an excellent zombie apocalypse novel. In 2014 a virus caused the Rising. Now it is 2040, humanity has survived and rebuilt. But life post-Rising has changed dramatically.
Bloggers Georgia, Shaun and Buffy are hired to cover the Presidential election. It’s a big story, but there is a story beneath the story. Georgia is determined that the truth will out, no matter the price.

This is book one of a trilogy and it’s a wonderful read with fantastic world building. The story is engrossing which allows you to overlook how smug, sanctimonious and obnoxious the main characters are.

Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

This is the fourth ‘Kate Daniels’ novel after ‘Magic Bites’, ‘Magic Burns’ and ‘Magic Strikes’. What seems like an ordinary bar fight turns out to be something much, much worse. A new player is in town, an ancient destructive plague sower.

As Kate battles this seemingly insurmountable foe, she and Curran have to sort out their testy relationship. Also Kate’s day job goes to hell and friendship is tested to breaking point.

This is a very good read. It is another delightful, dark look into Kate’s gritty and dangerous world.
