LoveReading View on Zom-B

The exciting new series from the master of teen horror. Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, It's a big, sprawling, vicious tale...a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!

About Darren Shan

Darren Shan's real name is Darren O'Shaughnessy. Although he is Irish he was actually born at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London -- directly across the river from the Houses of Parliament in Westminster (which may explain his fascination with evil bloodsuckers ...). He lived in SouthEast London until the age of six, when he moved to Limerick in Ireland, with his parents and younger brother, and has lived there ever since (but he never lost his London accent!). He later returned to London to study Sociology and English at Roehampton University. He then worked for a cable television company in Limerick ...
