Dead of Night
by Jonathan Maberry
Published by St. Martin’s Press on 10/25/2011
A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang…but a bite.
Ashley: Dude. Seriously. THIS is what a freaking ZOMBIE book is SUPPOSED to be right???? What’d you think???
Smash: This is my first journey into Maberry’s mind (I KNOW! Ugh) but I feel I can truly call myself a zombie enthusiast now. This man brings the zombies like no other! Truly impressed and horrified. Loved every minute of it.
Ashley: Dead of Night COMPLETELY blew me the hell away.
Smash: Such considerate language, dear Ashley. Shall we get real now?
Ashley: Hehe! I was TRYING to be “appropriate*. I WANTED to say he rocked my fucking face off and then sewed it back on. (too gory) lol
Smash: *snort* Appropriate? It’s the fucking zombie apocalypse! No time for manners, chic! So yea, Maberry is the MAN. I was completely sucked into this backwards ass town, Stebbins County, to be exact, and its pitiful band of survivors. The situation went from bad to really fucking bad in 60 seconds flat.
Ashley: Too true… RIGHT? Maberry is the king of the goddamn apocalypse. No joke. I was actually totally worried at first, because YOU know how I am about all the scientific/technical details… but it was SO easy to follow everything, that I was just *mouth open* and in “OMG mode” the entire time!!!!
Smash: Yea, the details were easy to follow and I was really grossed out over how zombies came to roam the earth. Those gory scenes where the thing that made them zombies made me gag. I fucking loved it.
Ashley: Duuuude, Dead of Night was wicked gory!!! The hubs kept asking me WHY I was making “that face”!
Smash: LMAO! You made faces, I made gagging noises. We’re a pair! Ok, what did you think of the zombies with a conscience? My jaw made real nice with my lap during that first scene with the Doc. I thought I would hate it, but it ended up being TERRIFYING.
Ashley: YES, the zombie with a conscience!!! I was like, oh dear GOD people are going to be like, “This hypocritical bitch!” after my review of Warm Bodies!! Because while I HATED that stupid, “wanna-be” zombie… I think Maberry’s “zombie with a conscience” was completely and totally different on ALL levels! Doc’s MIND was trapped inside his body… So it really doesn’t count, because he couldn’t CONTROL his actions. Right??
“He could feel everything.
Every. Single. Thing.”
“God, he begged, let me die.
But his own voice whispered to him, I’m already dead.
He hung trapped in darkness, an unwilling passenger, unable to move so much as a finger or a nostril. Nothing.”
Smash: That is some creepy shit. *shivers* Eerie beyond all belief. Dear Lawdie Above. *prayer hands* I’m not the best behaved little chickie on the block, but PLEASE do not let me have a conscience if I become a meatskin. How these zombies were created – why the first even came to be – was disgustingly brilliant on a horrific level. Take one off-kilter doctor with a vengeful attitude, add a sadistic serial killer and you get the zombie apocalypse, peeps! Maberry smacks you upside the head with WTFckery!
Ashley: OMG RIGHT???? That entire scenario from the scientist’s ‘motives’ to the carrying out of his revenge… was just… JESUS CHRIST- insane!
Smash: It was wicked insane! I loved how Maberry portrayed the ease of transmission, too. It was easy to see how all hell would break loose. And it did!
Ashley: YES!!! You know how easily confused I am, and I LOVED how easily I completely understood everything that was happening and HOW it was spreading!
Smash: Maberry did not take the deeply analytical or seriously scientific route. He laid it out all nicely on gore-filled pages.
Ashley: Gore-filled pages of awesomely badass zombie carnage. I was totally too scared to freaking go outside and smoke after dark while reading Dead of Night. It truly sent freaking chills through my entire body on more than one occasion!
Smash: The goriest scenes for me were when the conscience zombies could feel their er, zombie-making issue. I was literally squealing and itching my skin and jumping around from any little thing that fell on me, like a cat’s tail or piece of lint.
Ashley: So with you there! AND when we were privy to the thoughts of the Homer guy. SERIOUSLY. FREAKED. ME. OUT.
Smash: Being in that lunatic’s mind was EPIC. I loved how maniacal and twisted and plain ole crazy that SOB was. THAT insight, though it wasn’t real, felt real. Maberry knows his antisocial personality disorder serial killers!
Ashley: Maberry has literally just baffled me with how much I freaking loved this book. I totally didn’t expect to like it much. LOL
Smash: It’s ok to admit that you have a twisted side to your personality. I admit it freely. Join me.
Ashley: Ha! It’s not that, I just knew going in that this was going to be a different sort of book than I usually read! Like, alright… the back of the book -First line:
A prison doctor… blah blah, yada yada…
Ashley: Meh… I guarantee I never would’ve read this book, had you not said we should review it for Dark Ash’s and it was Zombie Craze! Holy CRAP, okay we HAVE to talk about the Aunt chick. Aunt Selma??? I’m actually at a loss for words. I loved her character. I DO wish she would’ve been explored a bit further!
Smash: She creeped my ass out, but I get your point. She had a short stint in the book and then Homer pays her a house call, and well, life changes for Auntie Selma. Soooo…I know you loved Dez, right? I was thinking of you the entire book because I knew you would be drawn to her BAMFness. (Ashley: What the hell is BAMFness? – Smash: Bad. Ass. Mother. Fucker. -ness. lol – Ashley: Ooooh EPIC WIN!) She was a broken and damaged police officer with enough fire to burn down the Amazon rainforest. Dez brought the pain. Homegirl was not going out without a bang. Case in point:
“Stupid cow,” Dex snarled.
Despite everything, JT smiled. “You have a real way with people, Dez. Charm and poise and–”
“We’re one half sentence away from me kneecapping you and leaving you here for these dead fuckers to eat.”
“Point taken,” he said, and they kept running.
Ashley: HOLY SHIT! Dez was SO freaking AWESOME!!!!!!! I loved her something FIERCELY hardcore! I would absolutely have Dez for a partner during the zombie apocalypse!!!
Smash: I loved her one-liners. Her mouth was as fierce as her drop kick.
“What in the deep blue fuck are you doing here, you asshole?”
Smash: This was spoken to love interest Billy, a local reporter. Actually, Billy loved her way more than she loved him, but only because she needed an apocalyptic massacre to allow her to see the truth. See kids! There is always room for romance! Anywho, I adored Billy throughout the entire book. He never gave up on her. I wanted to squeeze him.
Ashley: I thought Billy was such a great character dude! He had SUCH freaking DEVOTION to Dez that it damn near broke me in two!
If Dez was infected, if she was truly lost to him forever, then he would use Volker’s gun and give her peace… and then he would join her. If he could not have her in life, then he would follow her into death.
Ashley: But there weren’t any like OVERLY romantic tones… This was a ZOMBIE “tear your throat out” book through and through. Billy and Dez’s love was just ominous and wicked heartfelt!
Smash: Their romance took a backseat to the drama, but it was present and known. Now, I have to comment on the ending. I LOVED THE END! It could not have ended any more perfect. It was like the perfect ending to a scary movie that leaves you screaming into the night. I closed the book so satisfied and damn freaked out. Win!
Ashley: OH dear LORD, SO did I!!!! It was completely EPIC. Just when I thought… Well, that was really, really good! Wait… so what happened to the freaky eye guy??? Then… BAM!!!!
Smash: *snort* In yo face, bitches! Or more accurately, in yo skin and eating yo face off. Booyah!
Ashley: Totally eating your faces off (and making you like it!)
Ashley’s Favorite Quote
Windy like that, you don’t hold on to something, next thing you know you’re wearing ruby slippers and skipping down a yellow brick road.
(Is it presumptuous to assume every throwback to the Wizard of Oz in a zombie book is a tribute to me? *ponders*)
Today, join Ashley and I as we take over The Paperback Dolls during their 2nd Annual Zombie Week! Well, we don’t really take over, but they did invite us to write a review for this book…
The Dark Ash’s = Smash and Ashley from The Bookish Brunette
Says in best Carol Anne from Poltergeist voice…
|Title: The Body Finder
Author: Kimberly Derting
Series: The Body Finder
Release Date: 3/16/10
Genre: YA Fantasy
Source: Books & Books
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her “power” to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world… and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping that Jay’s intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she’s falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer… and becoming his prey herself.
Smash: The Body Finder…love the title. Macabre, gritty, to the point.
Ashley: Duuuude, I got CHILLS just from the prologue… Right?
Smash: The prologue was wicked. It set the scene for a very intense, creepy story! The entire book was eerie as hell…but before we get creeped out, let’s talk about puppies and rainbows! Or rather, Violet and Jay.
Ashley: Oooh so you want to talk about sweet, sexy, dreamy… Jay??
Smash: Isn’t he fantastic? I met Kimberly Derting at a signing not long ago, and she gushed about Jay. I hadn’t yet read the book, but damn, she wrote herself an almost-perfect boy!
Ashley: Totally agree, he was WICKED hot! *sigh*
Ashley: Okay! Violet can sense the dead, sometimes it’s a smell, a color, or a taste in the back of her mouth…
Smash: Yea, she describes them like a beacon -or an echo- and they help her hone in on the…remains…
Ashley: These dead bodies don’t like TALK to her or anything though, they just send ‘signals’ to aid in her finding them!
Smash: It’s her sixth sense, I guess. Not a sense I’d like to have. I think Violet feels the same way, at first…
Ashley: Oooh! If you could have a sixth sense what would it be???
Smash: Does X-Ray vision count? I’d be quite happy seeing what’s underneath Jason Momoa or Joe Manganiello’s jeans. Oh wait, this is a YA book!
Ashley: Ha! You=Made of WIN. People know us… we’re too overly (what’s a word for not filtered?)
Ashley:…honest for our own good!
Smash: yes…honesty is the best policy. *angel face*
Ashley: Okay… back to the review! What were we talking about? Whether Jay wears boxers or briefs? No?
Smash: Sounds like you want my sixth sense too!
Ashley: Dude, like I said- that idea is MADE of WIN!
Smash: Holla! Ok, back to Jay’s briefs. Oh, I mean. Wait. Let’s get our thoughts in order. *deep breath*
Ashley: *FOCUS* So Jay and Violet have been best friends for years.
Smash: Practically since elementary school. They know the ins and outs of each other’s lives and are bosom buds til the end.
Ashley: Only lately, Violet has been feeling much more than JUST friendly type feelings towards Jay. But so has damn near every other chick in school.
Smash: Seems as though Jay has filled out them briefs over Summer break. *wiggles eyebrows*
Ashley: You’re bad… I JUST got over the hot flashes from earlier. Now I must start the deep breathing ALL over again. #SmashFail ←- Yeah, I totally just rocked a hashtag in the middle of our review.
Smash: #TwittaWhoreFTW. Ok. Back to the story. I’ll be good. *puppy dog eyes*
Ashley: Uh huh… SURE! Okay! Violet is desperately trying to forget her new-found feelings for Jay, when Grady asks her to homecoming… and Jay gets ALL kinds of worked up about it!
Smash: THAT was a clear indicator to us readers, but they are both still so oblivious. I wanted to smack their heads together sometimes!
Ashley: Right? I’m pretty sure Jay KNEW he loved Violet, but Violet didn’t know he did!
Smash: Ahhh…the insecurities of teenage love…glad that shit is over with.
Ashley: Right? SO glad dating is over! Although… I still wouldn’t mind seeing Jay without pants on! *giggles*
Smash: YOU! Don’t you go off on the deep end now, too. We need to stay focused. Chant after me…Jay is delicious in his briefs.. I mean, Violet has a wicked, cool, scary sixth sense!
Ashley: UGH! Team ADHD… strikes again. Did we mention that Violet found a dead body at the lake? Or have we gotten there yet? Because several girls go missing and Violet makes it her personal mission to hunt the killer down.
Smash: You see, Violet can not only sense the dead, but she can also sense the death imprints on the killers!!!
Ashley: Yes! And every once in a few chapters we get a glimpse inside the killer’s perspective… Uuuum… it’s WICKED creepy! When the weird old guy grabs the girl and sticks her in his TRUNK, but whispers, “I promise not to hurt you.” I was thinking- WTF dude?!?!
Smash: Yea, in case you were wondering, don’t ever trust a guy that stuffs you in his trunk. #justsayin. I agree about the scenes from the killer’s perspective. They were so creeptastic! I can definitely tell that the author loves scary movies/books.
Ashley: Definitely. NEVER go willingly into some horrifyingly scary guy’s trunk. Not a good plan. So after, Violet decides to go looking for the killer… at least she called Jay first!
Smash: Yea, and he’s pretty unhappy with her attempts at being a hero, but you can just feel the love he has for her permeating the pages.
Ashley: Oh, I completely agree! They were absolutely ELECTRIFYING together… After Grady turns out to be the Worlds Biggest Jerk Face EVER (DOUCHEBAG!), ←- yeah, what she said! Jay rescues Violet from Grady, but another girl goes missing from the party they were both at! And now it feels wicked personal because it hits so close to home.
Smash: As Violet becomes more wrapped up in the game of cat and mouse, she helps to uncover the killer but not without some serious close calls! Jay, of course, is sincerely concerned for her throughout and risks it all. *swoon*
Ashley: I, for one, was wholly satisfied with the ending of the book… and the way everything wrapped up. I could not believe there was no cliffhanger- since they are so largely popular these days.
Smash: I agree. Great story, great romance, great villain, great mystery. It was just great all around.
Smash’s fav quote:
“Sorry about that…I’ve been so worried about strange men following you around that I forgot how dangerous Homecoming Queens can be.” –Jay
Ash’s fav quote:
“I can’t lose you, not now that I finally have you.” ~Jay (during a wicked make-out session, if I’m re-calling correctly.) (oh, those make out sessions!) *SWOON*

Read an excerpt (Excerpts may contain spoilers)
In 2014, two experimental viruses—a genetically engineered flu strain designed by Dr. Alexander Kellis, intended to act as a cure for the common cold, and a cancer-killing strain of Marburg, known as “Marburg Amberlee”—escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks.
It raised the dead.
Millions died in the chaos that followed. The summer of 2014 was dubbed “The Rising,” and only the lessons learned from a thousand zombie movies allowed mankind to survive. Even then, the world was changed forever. The mainstream media fell, Internet news acquired an undeniable new legitimacy, and the CDC rose to a new level of power.
Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection. Danger, deceit, and betrayal lurk around every corner, as does the hardest question of them all:
When will you rise?
Smash: Ashley and Smash here, aka The Dark Ashes. Holla! Welcome to our very first joint review. Are you surprised that it’s a zombie book? Nah, didn’t think so…Ok, so the year is 2039. Our narrator, Georgia Mason, is…crap. How did the book start out?
Ashley: Shaun was poking the zombie with a stick.
Smash: Right! We meet Shaun Mason and his sister, Georgia, in the field. Shaun is busy prodding and poking a dying zombie. It’s his thing. Poking stuff.
Ashley: DUDE… Zombies are already DEAD.
Smash: Er, but they move, so I’m calling it a dying one, capiche?
Ashley: HA! Okay, I was going to start by saying there’s no romance, no sex and barely any zombie action, but at least the Presidential candidate was Republican!
Smash: LOL. Ok, I give you your Republican. He was a decent dude, for sure. But there is some bit of story before we meet him.
Ashley: Okay, hang on! I gotta look at my notes!
Smash: OMG! You take notes tooooooooo. *swoon*
Ashley: Shhhyea I do! We are so awesome!
Smash: A woman after my own nerdy heart. Ok, so Shaun and Georgia are in the field. Georgia is our narrator, and she begins to explain the world as it is today.
Ashley: I knew from the first page- before the story even STARTS- that I would love the perspective that FEED was told in…
Smash: I have to agree. Georgia is a pretty fantastic narrator. I wasn’t so sure about her up front, but she has serious balls. As the story progressives, you learn more and more that Georgia don’t take shit from no one, senator, zombie or otherwise. Major cahones, ppl.
Ashley: Dude, I was KINDA talking about Shaun…I know Georgia was the storyteller, but I meant the quotes and the WAY it was told!
Smash: Shaun is stellar, and we get his perspective too. He’s what this world refers to as an Irwin. He’s the grab-the-action-by-the-decayed-body-part news blogger, and if you don’t get where “Irwin” comes from, you are the suck.
Ashley: Yeah… ya’ll are going to totally have to refer to Smash for all the tech/scientific/political crap because it was WAY over my head! Just sayin. Tell them about Newsies and Fictionals Ash!
Smash: You need to give yourself more credit. And I am not as smart as I look. *wink* Er, back to the review. The Newsies, of which Georgia belongs, are the stick-to-the-facts-or-break-yo-mama’s-back news bloggers. And the Fictionals are the entertainment bloggers. They provide the poetry, stories, and er, fiction, to lighten the stress of living in Hell on earth. Buffy, Shaun and Georgia’s partner, is the Fictional. Oh, and their news site is called After the End Times, and they each have their own blog, too. Georgia is kinda the head honcho, given her large cahones and all, but they work well as a team.
Ashley: Think everyone is clear on the team and their jobs?? Good! So Shaun and Georgia are in Santa Cruz- “Zombie Territory” looking for news, and like Ash said, Shaun is poking a zombie with a stick. Georgia threatens to leave him there and that’s when all hell breaks loose!
Smash: All of a sudden, zombies attack! Well, in the best way zombies know how. George – that’s what Shaun calls her- and Shaun find themselves in the midst of a zombie invasion. So, Georgia hops on her kick ass bike, and throws Shaun behind her as they set off into the sunset…
Ashley: And this is one of the things that makes FEED unique in the world of zombie literature! (Yeah, I said it) A lone zombie, like the ONE Shaun was poking with a stick isn’t so much of a threat, but you get a group together and they start to ‘think’ and almost ‘strategize’. It’s freaking AWESOME.
Smash: Yea, they kinda have a pack mentality, which is uber creepy! After a near miss with the zombie horde, Georgia and Shaun meet up with Buffy at their news van, packed full of fancy schmancy equipment. But first, they must pass a blood test. The blood tests become their own character within this novel, as they are given consistently to ensure no one is infected. You cannot get anywhere-in the van, the house, the mall, the farm, even the damn shower- without a blood test! I would hate to have my fingers pricked 10+ times a day.
Ashley: Completely agree chick… That would SUCK.
Smash: No, it would HURT. Hmmm. Wanna explain how zombies came to walk the earth? I always love a good, gory “oops” of a backstory.
Ashley: I shall try… So what happened was, in the year 2014 a Dr. Keller had apparently cured the common cold and was going to sell the formula to the highest bidder when some extremist type broke into the lab and literally BOMBED the world with this “cure”!
Smash: Um, don’t you mean Dr. Kellis?
Ashley: Huh? Oh! Was it Kellis? Fine, fine… Kellis then!
Smash: You can’t be messing up the name of the Dr., dude. He’s half the name of the icky virus that turned the world into flesh eaters!
Ashley: I told you it was all entirely TOO scientific for my taste! Anyway, after this Kellis character’s cure was distributed among the people it unfortunately had an extremely adverse reaction with Marbury EX19 (the cure for CANCER!), and therefore created the virus now known as Kellis-Amberlee and it causes the dead to reanimate.
Smash: So, they cure cancer and the common cold, but reanimate the dead in the process. Fun times! Oh, but wait. This virus can lay dormant in people and cause spontaneous zombification. “Rise and shine! It’s time to dine (on brains, that is!)” They call it spontaneous amplification. And for all you animal lovers, I hate to break it to ya, but this damn virus can take hold of any living cellular system that is over 40 lbs, which pretty much means half the animals on earth. Zombie elephants, anyone?
Ashley: Oh. My. God. I just had a thought! How much do flamingos weigh?? Do you think they’d be safe from KA? Surely they aren’t over 40lbs? This could be traumatic for me.
Smash: Um, more traumatic than zombie zombies?
Ashley: Uh YEAH dude. Can you imagine Zombie freaking flamingos?? That would be completely unacceptable for me. They are too pretty to be zombies.
Smash: *bites fingernails and looks around frantically* I live in FLORIDA! We have flamingos up the wazoo!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. Oh. Hi. What were we doing? Oh, right. So, for our narrator, Georgia, the virus has caused an interesting disability. You see, she has a Retinal Kellis- Amberlee reservoir condition. The dormant virus in her system has caused her pupils to remain dilated permanently. And if you’ve ever had your pupils dilated, you know how sensitive they are to light. So George is forever in sunglasses, or a special pair of contacts that she saves for fancy occasions. Her eyes also don’t produce tears, as the virus has created some protective film over them. It’s a bit of a bummer and hinders her at times, but she’s learned how to live with it, and is actually pretty bad-ass regardless.
Ashley: Basically, Georgia and her team are chosen to follow one of the presidential candidates around during the election process… and here’s where the book got ‘iffy’ for me! I’m not all that into politics and science anyway, *gasp* I know right? So for 200+ pages it was a lot of POLITICAL jargon and scientific explanations that frankly I could’ve lived without.
Smash: My undergrad was in international studies, which is a branch of political science, but honestly, it ain’t my thing either. I will say that Senator Ryman was a pretty cool dude. He’s sincere and honest, which is an uncommon personality trait in a Republican politician.
Ashley: Ha! I do believe we have a democrat on our hands…
Smash: Well, I am a social worker…LOL.
Ashley: *ahem* Moving on… Then as soon as we hit around about page 300 the story gets WAY more interesting… and then it’s like BAM! I dare you to put the book down with 100 pages left! The ending is SUPERB and in every sense amazing. Horrifically sad, but absolutely thrilling!
Smash: Yea, the book has a serious conspiracy throughout, and Georgia and crew find themselves knee-deep in zombie parts. Regardless of the risk, George doesn’t back down. Throughout the book, she refused to let the truth slide, and always put her ass on the line so that society was properly informed. I have to admit that the ending blew me away. I was not expecting that wrench in the story. It was a doozy, but it strengthened the message that Shaun, Georgia and Buffy fight for: THE TRUTH. And when you’re dealing with Republicans politicians, the truth is lost between the mounds of bull shit.
- At one of the conventions, George talks about the trade show booths and the kinda shit they sell: freeze-dried food, medieval weapons, new cars, toys for the kids. She had an affection for the Mattel booth, with their Urban Survival Barbie, complete with her own machete and blood testing unit. I totally though of Ashley. Is she not the perfect Urban Survival Barbie? ←- As long as I get like kick ass stilettos to go with! ←-It IS Barbie, after all!
- They talk about George Romero early in the novel, which kicked so much ass. They explain that the three most common girl names come from him: Georgia, Georgette and Barbara. Some say that good ole George became infected and was used for experimentation purposes, but others say his infection was no accident…
- One really cool thing about this book was the blog posts at the end of each chapter. As I mentioned earlier, each character has their own personal blog, and the author decided to use this avenue as a way to get to know the characters more intimately. It was pretty stellar, and made the blogging bit more interesting. ←– I SO loved this too!

“Actually, I decided to skip the weapons.” Picking up the other two kits, I brushed past him in my way up front. “If we meet any zombies, we’ll pacify them with Hostess snack cakes.”
“Even the living dead love Hostess snack cakes.” ←-I totally thought of Ashley! I totally NEEDED a HoHo after that one!!! No joke dude!
