Blackout (Newsflesh Trilogy, #3) by Mira Grant


 Rise up while you can. -Georgia Mason

The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising.

The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. They uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made.

Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this:

Things can always get worse.

Blackout is the conclusion to the epic trilogy that began in the Hugo-nominated Feed and the sequel, Deadline.
  • Genre: Paranormal, Post Apocalyptic, Dystopia, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy
  • Creatures: zombies
  • Age: new adult
  • Source: owned ebook
  • Read from September 06 to 09, 2012

FINAL RATING: ★★★★★/★★★★★

“It's the oldest story in the world. Boy loves girl. Boy loses girl. Boy gets girl back thanks to the unethical behavior of megalomaniacal mad scientists who never met a corpse they wouldn't try to resurrect. Anyone coming within a hundred yards of my happy ending had better pray that they're immune to bullets.”

I freaking loved it! IT was just fantastic, amazing and utterly badass! ♥ This trilogy must not be ignored, it MUST BE READ. trust me on this - i gave all three books of this trilogy 5 stars. And it was worth it.

I will so going to miss these books. Especially because of the characters. After all, this series proved to be great in characterization and good in story. I loved how the story concluded. I was not disappointed and now i am utterly happy.

Anyway, do not read this review if you haven't read Feed & Deadline...(p.s. stuff under spoilers can be really heavy)

I just knew it from the start that George and Shaun were in relationship, real one. I approve of that because they were not blood related but it also saved Shaun's life  he is immune because he had sex with

That was the one thing we never wrote down—the one thing we couldn’t write down, because no file or server is ever totally secure, and it would have gotten out. No one would have cared that we weren’t biologically related, or that we’d gone in for genetic testing when we turned sixteen, just to be absolutely sure. No one would have cared that we didn’t trust anyone else enough to let them be there while we slept. No. The media loves a scandal, and we’d been raised as siblings in the public eye. It would have destroyed our ratings, and then the Masons would have destroyed us, for blackening the family name.

There were a few people who’d guessed over the years. I’m pretty sure that Buffy knew. But we never, never wrote it down.

I loved all of the people from After the end Times, especially Becks and Mahir. Dave was cool too :D

I am just said that Becks didn't get any chance with Shaun, when she clearly was in love with him. I liked her a lot.
I was really said when she decided to blow herself up to save them all T_T

“Last guy I was interested in turned out to be an incestuous necrophiliac," she said. "So no, not currently dating, and definitely not doing any more shopping in the 'sociopath' category”

The ending was just what i wanted it to be. Concluded and explained. Thankfully they didn't bore with politics and they more focused on Kellis-Amberlee and other events.

spoilers for the end of the book =>
In the end, we conclude that government wanted to control people with a zombie apocalypse, through fear. And all because they couldn't find the cure. Even though they knew that people with Retinal KA were starting to get immune to virus, they killed them to hush that. It was really wrong and i am glad that that solved at the end. Also Shaun & Georgia getting a happy end too. If only Mira Grant made another chapter with what they are doing, IT WOULD BE AMAZEBALLS
