Oliver Twisted by J. D. Sharpe, Charles Dickens
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Oliver Twisted takes its inspiration from Dickens' Oliver Twist but with one hell of a twist! The world according to Oliver Twisted is simple. Vampyres feed on the defenceless, orphans are sacrificed to hungry gods and if a woe-begotten catches your scent it will hunt you forever. On the advice of a corpse, Oliver flees his ghastly orphan life to seek his destiny in the dark streets of old London Town.

Other titles from YA imprint Electric Monkey include: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein and Bzrk by Michael Grant, author of the Gone series.

Synopsis

Oliver Twisted by J. D. Sharpe, Charles Dickens

Flesh, the woe-begotten moaned at Oliver, baring teeth which were ragged and black. Flesh came another moan, and he turned to see two more behind. They began to shuffle towards him, barefoot.

Oliver flees his ghastly orphan life to seek his destiny in the dark streets of old London Town, despite the perils of the woe-begotten zombie-infested journey. There he meets the shadowy Dodger, the evil old soul-stealer Fagin, and the menacing Bill Sikes, who is more beast than man. But will Oliver Twisted be the world's salvation, or its downfall?!
