When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B’s racist father thinks it’s a joke—but even if it isn’t, he figures, it’s okay to lose a few Micks.

B doesn’t fully buy into Dad’s racism but figures it’s easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn’t work, B doesn’t hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.

That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A clever mix of horror, fantasy, and realism…The book is a carefully crafted attack on those who pull the strings to incite hatred.”

    Telegraph (London)

  • “Character development is impressive…and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Horror with a social conscience…This compelling page-turner builds steadily to the climax then throws the reader off the cliff with a twist that is impossible to see coming.”

    VOYA

  • “A raw and deeply observant tale of a morally questionable kid trying, and usually failing, to move beyond the ingrained racism instilled by B’s father. It is a brave move by Shan to posit such a bigoted hooligan as our protagonist.”

    Booklist

  • “Horror fans no doubt will eat up Shan’s latest, like some warm, sweet brains from a freshly cracked skull. Yum.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Shan packs in the bites, and he rips out enough entrails for even the most jaded zombie fan; the cliffhanger ending…closes on just the right note to leave the audience gnawing for more…A series opener to sink your teeth into.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " I think the book is very good and it is a mega thriller especially if you like zombies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Shieber | 8/10/2013

    " Really enjoyed book 3. Found it quite different to the other 2. Some bits may have been a bit unnecessary for a teen/young adult book. Won't spoil it or give too much away but for the people who have read it may understand when I say baby?! Looking forward to the next one as always! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 7/27/2013

    " Started off quite slow but got better near the ending. Looking forward to seeing where Shan is going next with this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Leigh | 7/16/2013

    " This is definitely the best in the series! I am liking the direction it is going, and I am really liking B's character development! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Mellen | 2/11/2013

    " Book 3 in the series has B escaping the military compound and out on the streets of London. Once again the blood and gore precludes this book from being in a middle school library but I am now hooked on this very different zombie book because you can never guess what will happen next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bella (Cheezyfeet Books) | 2/9/2013

    " It was good! Super annoying cliffhanger though... Review to come! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mehsi | 11/15/2012

    " Another great book. There were some inconsistencies though. Which is a shame, I expected a bit better in that regard from Darren Shan. "
