The next installment in Darren Shan's epic zombie series, starring B, a teen zombie with conscious thought.
B Smith has spent the last few months bunking up with the Angels, a group of teens dedicating to eradicating the evil dead from the face of the earth. But the Angels' mission is a bit more complicated than that, and B takes to the streets of London to decide: is it a mission really to be believed? But instead of answers, B finds a horror beyond imagining.
The fifth book in the exhilarating zombie series from New York Times bestselling Darren Shan amps up the stakes completely. Are you ready for the ghastly revelations the master of horror is going to dish up?
"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."
