Pulsating with tension, twists and a whole lot of blood, Zom-B Fugitive is the penultimate book in an addictive twelve-volume series by horror supremo, Darren Shan. While the ingeniously unpredictable plot, involving the likes of a crazy killer clown, mutant babies and legions of brain-eating zombies, will have gore fans turning the pages at breakneck speed, this series also confronts big issues face-on. The horror of fighting for survival in a violent, post-apocalyptic world is juxtaposed with horrors readers will recognise from our own - racism, cruelty and the abuse of power. And the stakes couldn’t be higher as the momentum of this unique series hurtles towards its undoubtedly shocking climax. As B, the resilient protagonist, remarks, she’s “carrying hope for the entire world”. Featuring evocative full-page illustrations by acclaimed comic book artist Warren Pleece, this is an audaciously inventive read for older readers with a thirst for the gory. - Joanne Owen
