Follow up to the gritty and sharply written dystopian debut Deadlands. Great teen fiction with lots of crossover appeal. Lele, Ginger, Ash and Saint - aka the Mall Rats - are hiding out in the Deadlands, a once-prosperous area of Cape Town, now swarming with the living dead. Exiled from the city enclave for crimes against the Resurrectionist State, the Rats face a stark choice: return and risk capture - or leave Cape Town and go in search of other survivors.

Synopsis

Death of a Saint by Lily Herne

Some secrets are so unthinkable you can't even admit them to yourself...Lele, Ginger, Ash and Saint - aka the Mall Rats - are hiding out in the Deadlands, a once-prosperous area of Cape Town, now swarming with the living dead. Exiled from the city enclave for crimes against the Resurrectionist State, the Rats face a stark choice: return and risk capture - or leave Cape Town and go in search of other survivors. But what if the rest of South Africa is nothing but a zombie-riddled wasteland? Now Lele has discovered the truth about why the lurching dead leave them alone, she can't bring herself to tell the rest of the gang. And she's not the only Mall Rat harbouring a dangerous secret...Can the friends' survive on the road if all they have is each other? Or will their secrets tear them apart?

Reviews

I don't know how to express how completely besotted I am with the Mall Rats series...I've not adored a book so much for a long, long time...Go buy yourself a copy - that's an order! In fact, write to me and I'll send you a copy ... my life seems to have become a mission to make sure the world has read this book. It's worth the time and money - really, honestly, truly. * The Guardian *
