The Burning World (The Warm Bodies Series)




The latest installment in the Warm Bodies series plunges into darker, more dangerous and thrilling new territory

R is recovering from death. He's learning how to read, how to speak, maybe even how to love. He can almost imagine a future with Julie, this girl who restarted his heart - building a new world from the ashes of the old one.

And then helicopters appear on the horizon. A mysterious army is coming to restore order, to bring back the good old days of stability and control and the strong eating the weak. These grinning strangers are more than they seem. The plague has many hosts, and some are far more terrifying than the Dead.

With their home in the grip of madmen, R and Julie plunge into the wastelands of America in search of answers. But there are some answers R doesn't want to find. A past life, an old shadow, crawling up from the basement.

In this long-anticipated new chapter of the Warm Bodies series, Isaac Marion expands the scope of a powerfully simple story: a dead man's search for life in all its bloody rawness.
