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""" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
Darren's gripping style and "F1" speed plot action keeps him at the forefront of writers in this popular genre of fantasy-fiction-horror writing!
This latest addition to the "Zom-B" series carries the line of the Undead into more new and uncertain futures. New characters emerge from the shadows of the Zom-B vaults - just who is this 'Ivor Bolton', the mysterious but cleverly-named keeper of the keys to the Zom-B vaults?! I'm sure that we shall be hearing lots more of him in future Zom-B writing!
Look out for Daren Shan's appearances on his reader tours! His performances are as great as his stories because he really CARES about his readers, and works hard to meet and please them. How many other authors do you know who do that? Jacqueline Wilson does her best! JKR ? No chance ! Check out the Darren Shan website for the programme of Darren's appearances.
Zom-B Angels! Another GREAT Darren Shan read at a great Amazon price!
didn't want it to end
the best book series eva...
(This is my son's review as this book was bought for him)
There isn't much action in the book but still a very good read and I like how some old characters have been reintroduced
The plot is developing most finely and the various characters are starting to
come into their own. The 'baddies' are still very much in the background but
are hovering just around the corner...planning and waiting. Can't wait for the
next installment. Highly recommended!
Would recommend to any Darren Shan lovers like myself, anyone that loves zombie stories, or even anyone that enjoys a series with a few interesting twists.
Great prices available too, no reason not to buy it!
