Darren Shan has done it again. He has a new series; this time the subject is zombies. Book #1 ZOM-B already has a waiting list in my classroom.


B and his friends and family are hearing rumors about zombies attacking in an Irish village. Living in London, B doesn't take it very seriously, instead focusing on friends and living in the here and now.


B has enough to worry about with an abusive bigot for a father and not much support from a weak, terrified mother. Unpopular with the principal and teachers at school, B spends time hanging with friends and usually causing trouble as a way to have a bit of fun.


When the zombies arrive in London, the action truly begins. In typical Darren Shan form, there is plenty of mayhem and madness complete with gruesome details. Shan's fans will eat it up.
