The Lovereading4Kids comment
Mission number seven in the brilliantly horror-rich Zom-B series in which the dead have taken over the world. The undead, whether they are a revitalised or a revived, are being hacked down and killed everywhere. B Smith sets off on a desperate mission into the zombie-infested suburbs. Is there any chance he and his team can survive? The odds against them are heavy and the situation is desperate as they fight their way against the terrible enemy.

- Jennifer Bridgeman - 'Zom-B was scary but amazing at the same time. It was really scary because the zombies could crack your skull open with there long fingers. I loved it.' Read full review >
- Janet Gilliard - 'My son would recommend it...definitely a young adult novel!' Read full review >
ZOM-B Mission by Darren Shan
What has happened to the world since the dead took over? Where have the humans gone to hide? Who do the living most have to fear? B Smith is heading for unknown territory...Leading a group of humans through London and out into zombie-infested suburbs sounds like suicide - but not for the undead! Even so, the horrors of the journey will be beyond anything B has yet seen...
'Do not underestimate the dangers of this mission. Other zombies will not ignore you when they catch the scent of fresh brains. You will almost surely be called upon to fight. The city and countryside are full of angry, bitter people who are trying to execute as many of the undead as they can. They will not distinguish between a revitalised and a revived. Most do not know there is a difference. And most would not care.'
Zom-B is a 12 part series of which 10 have so far been released
