Zom-B City is yet again another kick-butt instalment from our master of horror! I simply cannot get enough of these moreish books!


What I enjoyed most was the city environment B escaped into. B has no idea what she was stepping out into, she doesn't know if there are any living people or if the place is overrun with the walking dead!


The city is a hellish place and B finds herself fighting for survival at every twisty turn. I liked that she met new faces and also how much she discovered along the way, but I have a feeling that there are so many shockers still to be uncovered....


I'm terrified of clowns, so the reappearance of a Mr Dowling pleased me to no end - thrill seeker that I am. He most definitely has the creep factor and I'm so intrigued by him. I can't wait to find out more about this interesting character!


Darren Shan writes awesomely and this series is only going from strength to strength. The descriptors are vivid and the action and intrigue are on from the very first page!


Zom-B CIty is a super-fast, action packed and punchy tale. It captures, holds and doesn't let up until the very end. The ending itself has the most annoying cliffhanger ever though, so be sure to have the next book waiting (I didn't at the time and I was pulling my hair out). I just know there is so much more to uncover and I can't wait to see where we will be taken next!


4/5 Stars!
