When B wakes up in a military complex, she learns that she has been turned into a zombie--a zombie that has retained her conscience and reason. She and her fellow "zom heads" struggle to escape their captors.
Each book in the series will confront challenging issues of racism, the politics of fear and survivalism, martial law, religion, and more as B navigates the initial attack and [spoiler alert!] life afterwards as a conscious zombie.
Praise for Zom-B Underground:
"Once the action starts, it doesn't let up...Shan has done a good job of balancing this angst with B's more physical situation, and it is the strength of this installment."
—School Library Journal
Praise for Zom-B:
"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."
