This is one of my favourite books in the series, and as you can guess from the title, introduces a man called Oystein and his team of zom heads, otherwise known as Angels.
It introduces most of the major characters in the series, including Master Zhang, B's room mates and Doctor Oystein, who has brought his team of revitalized zombies together in the hope that they will be able to destroy the clown and hand the reins of power back to the living. Personally, I don't trust this man. I mean, his intentions sound good, but he never reveals much about his past and when B questions him on his surname, he brushes her off and changes the conversation. What is he hiding and why?
Never the less, he takes B under his wing and offers her protection in County Hall when she needs it the most. He is willing to help her change her ways and to become an 'Angel', and B can't help but accept his generous offer.
This book is slower than the others, but it gives us key information about the zombies and starts to delve briefly into Mr Dowling's intentions, though we only hear these from the mouth of Doctor Oystein.
I enjoyed learning more about the apocalypse, and I really liked Oystein as a character. He seems really nice, though I'm still a bit unsure about his intentions....B is beginning to develop into someone other than the rude, racist girl we first met in Zom-B. She is starting to see that she needs others just as much as they need her, no matter where they come from. A must read for any Darren Shan fan.
