Description

From Darren Shan, the Master of Horror, comes the gripping second book in the Zom-B series.

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."
