Reviews

“It's a clever mix of horror, fantasy and realism - about the damaging 'virus' of racial hatred and social paranoia... The horror scenes are well choreographed and not without the useful escape valve of humour... you can bet that fans will be as hungry for the second instalment as a zombie for brains once they have read this gripping opener.”
The Telegraph

“Character development is impressive for a relatively short book, and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully.” Publishers Weekly

“This is a highly thought-provoking and hard-hitting read that will make young readers question the world around them, and should be shared and discussed at home and in classrooms.” Red House

“Once again, Shan has hit a home run and proved that he truly is the master of YA horror. I had exceedingly high hopes for Zom-B and I’m pleased to say that Shan completely outdid himself with this one... To be honest, it’s silly to try and even figure out the twists because they’re all absoluteblinders that I guarantee you will not see coming... it was ridiculously smart and made me lookat everything in a completely different light. Well played, Mr Shan, well played indeed.” Writing From the Tub

“Took the traditional zombie narrative and turned it on its head.” Irish Examiner

“Zom-B offers a dark comedic edge to the traditional tale… With twists that will enthral and leave you wanting more.” Sorted

“Zom-B kicks ass and eats brains, and will definitely satisfy all those die-hard Darren Shan fans out there waiting on the edge of their seats for the new installment.” The Stardust Reader

“I really enjoyed the events in story and as usual Mr Darren Shan never fails to bring the awesome!” Fiction Fascination

“I’m really loving this series!” So Many Books, So Little Time

“Holy cow, Zom-B Underground is amazing…in a league of its own.” Empire of Books

“There’s plenty of gore and it all goes along at a rattling pace and I loved it.”The Bookbag

“I loved it, from beginning to end, and I guarantee that it is going to be massively popular with Shan fans around the world... One of [the plot] twists, which occurs a handful of chapters before the end, had my jaw hitting the ground with a thud... I wanted to hug and throttle Darren Shan at the same time for his sheer deviousness and audacity. ” BookZone for Boys
