The first book in the explosive new zombie series from the master of horror, now in paperback.

The exciting new series from the master of teen horror. Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, It's a big, sprawling, vicious tale...a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!

If you like Darren Shan you might also like to read books by Simon Lelic, Andrew Pyper and Stephen King.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
