From Master of Horror Darren Shan, an infectiously gory bind-up to sink your teeth into...
B Smith doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, black, or immigrants. That is, until zombies attack. This bind-up of the first three novellas in Darren Shan's Zom-B series leads B on a mad dash through the corridors of high school, a secret underground military complex, and the dangerous streets of a very changed London, making allegiances with anyone who has enough gall to fight off the deadly - and undead - attackers.
Praise for Zom-B:
"Shan packs in the bites, and he rips out enough entrails for even the most jaded zombie fan; the cliffhanger ending...closes on just the right note to leave the audience gnawing for more... A series opener to sink your teeth into." - Kirkus Reviews
"A raw and deeply observant tale of a morally questionable kid trying, and usually failing, to move beyond the ingrained racism instilled by B's father. It is a brave move by Shan to posit such a bigoted hooligan as our protagonist." - Booklist
"Character development is impressive... and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully." - Publishers Weekly
"Horror with a social conscience... This compelling page-turner builds steadily to the climax then throws the reader off the cliff with a twist that is impossible to see coming." - VOYA
