“Multiple releases this year!”
Author: Darren Shan
Genre: Horror, Age: YA+
Released: 27th September 2012 (UK version), 2nd October 2012 (US Version)
Darren Shan continues to amaze with multiple releases this year. His previous series have included vampires in The Saga of Darren Shan and its prequel The Saga of Larren Crepsley, and demons in the Demonata series. It was only a matter of time before he decided to work his horror magic on zombies. Look out for this book, the first of a 12-book series.
According to the official website:
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!”
