Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy, #1)

Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy, #1) - Mira Grant I didn't think I was a fan of zombie fiction, however this one seems a little different. Set forty years after the zombie outbreak (a viral accident when a cold cure and a cancer cure merge) it follows the news team led by orphaned brother and sister - him an adrenalin seeking 'Irwin' (after Steve Irwin) and her a more sedate factual reporter - as they report on zombie activity. Having grown up post zombie apocalypse they've never known anything else which avoids the usual cliches of shock and fear. Suddenly their lives change for the complicated when they win the opportunity to report on the presidential campaign of the probable next president of the USA.
