How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea (Newsflesh Trilogy #3.5) by Mira Grant

A new Newsflesh novella from the New York Times bestselling author that brought you Feed, Mira Grant.

Post-Rising Australia can be a dangerous place, especially if you're a member of the government-sponsored Australia Conservation Corps, a group of people dedicated to preserving their continent's natural wealth until a cure can be found. 

Between the zombie kangaroos at the fences and the zombie elephant seals turning the penguin rookery at Prince Phillip Island into a slaughterhouse, the work of an animal conservationist is truly never done--and is often done at the end of a sniper rifle.

FINAL RATING: ★★★☆/★★★★★


Do not read this novella if you haven't read whole trilogy. It contains absolutely serious spoilers about all three books, and if you don't want your experience to be completely ruined, then read it after you read those three.

I was really enthusiastic to read this, but sadly, my excitement killed it. I can't say i was bored, i just lost interest and it made it dragging. Which is why i degraded a star, but it's because of me mostly. This isn't as impressive as Newsflesh series all in all, and even though Mahir was the main character in this novella, he just wasn't as impressive as before ( that doesn't mean he wasn't amusing at times).

Now, this novella is set in post apocalyptic Australia... now imagine this:

this was a cute little beautiful creature called Kangaroo.

Now, it's not so cute anymore. Now it's ZOMBIE KANGAROO.

And Mahir wants to investigate the rabbit-proof fence that everyone in Australia is talking about.

Basically the plot.

Oh well, i do miss the original team though. I miss Shaun and his crazyness and i miss Georgia who was one of the best female characters ever.

Oh hell, i miss everything. And this was a nice reminder to how much i love this series.
