Deadline (Newsflesh #2) by Mira Grant

Deadline (Newsflesh Trilogy, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has.

But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.

Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

Deadline (Newsflesh Trilogy, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was an okay story, but it was very much like the first.

Shaun was irritating in this book again, he wasn’t quite so into poking zombies, but he was being reckless. At times it seemed like he was purposefully putting himself in danger so that he too would die. The talking to a certain deceased person was also pretty weird to.

The storyline in this was okay, but again there were tonnes of information, and the whole thing was very news heavy. I did find that we got some interesting bits towards the end, but not that much unfortunately.
There was romance in this one, which was pretty unexpected, and I didn’t really like it.

The ending left us with a big cliff-hanger, but while the way the story ended was supposed to be unexpected, I predicted what would happen quite early on, so it wasn’t really unexpected for me.
Overall; okay story, but still too much info,
6.25 out of 10.
