LoveReading View on ZOM-B Baby

Zom-B Baby is the fifth instalment in Darren Shan’s epic Zom-B series. In his latest book, the ‘Master of Horror’ gives readers relative pause for thought after the break-neck pace of the first four books. 

How do you know if you're working for a lunatic? Where do you go when you've run out of people to trust? Have you ever heard an undead baby scream? B Smith is out of her comfort zone ...

ZOM-B Baby Synopsis

The story to date: protagonist B Smith has been ‘saved’ from the zombie apocalypse by Dr Oystein, who continues to prepare his revitalised ‘Angels’ for the war he believes God is directing him to wage. Meanwhile, Mr Dowling continues to prepare the brain-dead zombies, the enemy. Or so it seems. And then there’s the baby. The terrifying baby, identical to those that have appeared in B’s nightmares for years. This is no ordinary baby – it seems to hold
significant power among the undead, and has B in its sights…

Once again, Warren Pleece’s vivid illustrations bring to life Shan’s graphic storyline and the questions with which B continues to be presented: who can be trusted? Is
Dr Oystein the saviour he presents himself to be? Is this war justified? How can B
compute these inherent feelings for a racist, bullying father? How can one combat
loneliness?

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 ...
