The penultimate title of the terrifying Zom-B series from master of teen horror Darren Shan.
After learning the dark secrets hidden in Mr. Dowling's twisted mind, B is on the run. And when B learns of the history between Mr. Dowling and someone she trusted, she realizes that she can't rely on anyone--B, and B alone, is the only one who can save humanity.
Praise for Darren Shan's Zom-B series:
"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."
"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."
