Zom-B Gladiator is the 6th instalment in the fantastic Zom-B series. It sees us at the halfway point and really anything could happen....and probably will!


I really enjoyed the events in this story and as usual Mr Darren Shan never fails to bring the awesome! He is developing B so beautifully and I read some things I never thought I'd stumble across....even in a Shan book!


This story sees B fitting rather nicely into Angel life again after her solo mission in the last book. The only problem is that B won't get too close to the other Angels in fear of loosing more people. I loved seeing this vulnerable side to the normally snarky B.


Things rapidly go downhill when a blast from the past shows up and kidnaps her! She is taken on board a ship where very dangerous members of 'The Board' eagerly await her arrival. They want her for their own twisted sense of a gladiator!


B wouldn't normally play by anyone else's rules but the disgusting Dan-Dan forces her hand when he threatens the lives of the human children, that are being held captive on board the ship. So she kills and fights like a trooper, but she couldn't possibly hope to last long against hoards of the undead!


The introduction of Dan-Dan is a stoke of genius! Just when you think no more villains could possibly come crawling out of the woodwork, along he comes and rivals Mr Dowling in a whole different brand of evil!


Zom-B Gladiator is an action packed and kick ass instalment. It sees us introduced to a whole range of new and very twisted characters. B is going from strength and really I just can't wait to see what exciting adventures she will bring us on next!


3.5 / 5 Stars!
