The next installment in Darren Shan's epic zombie series, starring B, a teen zombie with conscious thought.
Without a shadow of a doubt, B Smith has decided to live--and to fight for good as long as possible. London is swarming with human mercenaries, though, whose sense of right and wrong dissolved when society did. When they lay a trap, B is captured. It'll take dozens of battles--and the fight of a lifetime--to escape.
Darren Shan continues his adventures of a teenage zombie trying to right the wrongs of a flawed human life, exploring the morality and ills of society through the lens of an apocalypse gone wrong-and a terrifying hell on earth reigning.
"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."
