Pre Pub Book Buzz -- Feed by Mira Grant

Mira Grant's "debut" Feed is a book that I've been looking forward to ever since stumbling across the cover art on Orbit's website. I didn't even need to know what it was about with this cover. It was enough all by itself to get me salivating and on the edge of my seat until the release date, which is coming soon!

Feed hits shelves April 27.

Now, why is "debut" in "quotes?" Because Mira Grant is also Seanan McGuire, author of the October Daye series that began with Rosemary and Rue last September (A Local Habitation, book two, was released in March). They're two different series, though. Feed, first in the Newsflesh series is zombie horror while Rosemary and Rue is paranormal/urban fantasy.

So, if the cover is not enough to entice you, I guess I should go ahead and include a synopsis. Kidding, I was going to anyway. Here's the description from Grant's website (Psst. PW gave it a Starred Review!):

When Senator Peter Ryman of Wisconsin decides to take a team of bloggers along on his run for the White House, Georgia and Shaun Mason are quick to submit their application. They, along with their friend Georgette "Buffy" M. are selected, and view this as the chance to launch their careers to a whole new level...that is, if they can survive the campaign trail.

Called "a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported" by Publisher's Weekly, Feed follows the Masons and their crew into a world filled with the living dead—and the much more dangerous living.
