Description

Waking up in a military complex, months after zombies attacked school, B has no memory of the last few months. Life in the UK has turned tough since the outbreak, and B is woven into life- and battle- in the new military regime quickly. But as B learns more about the zombies held in the complex and the scientists keeping them captive, unease settles in. Why exactly was B saved? And is there anyone left in the world to trust?

Praise For Zom-B Underground

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."
-Kirkus Reviews

"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."
-Booklist

"Character development is impressive...and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully."
-Publishers Weekly
