Read full description of the books:
I assume that by picking up this book that A) You’re up to date on this series so far or B) You’re an older fan of Darren Shan and you’re curious as to what he’s up to now.
Well, let me catch you up on what he’s been doing.
Zom-B family is the ninth book in the zombie-infested series by the ‘Master of Horror’ Darren Shan. If you are not up to date on the series and are allergic to spoilers…put on your face mask and blindfold now.
You have been warned.
At this point in the series, we have learnt that B. Smith is sort of dead. Yes, she is a zombie, but she has retained all of her thinking abilities and consciousness. This is as a result of being inoculated as a child by the mysterious Dr Oystein. She struggles with this new way of life for a long time throughout the series. She eventually reconciles with her new place in the world however, and joins other ‘revitalised’ as they are known to become ‘Angels’. These help Dr Oystein in the fight to save humanity from the gruesome clown figure Mr Dowling.
Toward the end of the last book Zom-B Clans, we see B betrayed by one of her fellow Angels and taken captive. Her captors include the sick, twisted and downright creepy child-killer Dan-Dan, racists (of which her father is one and who she despises) and the ever present Owl Man.
Now that we’re up to date, what follows is without doubt, one of the most gruesome, bloody and gory bits of writing I’ve read in a very long time.
As a student of Mr Shan and having read every one of his books to date, I can safely say that he’s learnt a few new tricks for this book.
Ability to make your dinner come back up your throat…double check!
Mr Shan has stepped up his game in terms of sheer brutality here. The torture scene between two characters is a detailed and organised mess of blood, flesh, maiming, blood and taunts, that will leave you with your own scars on your mind, so powerful is the writing.
Even after all of this, we have death fights, brain smashing, ripping limbs and a whole host of other delightfulness that fans of Shan will sink their teeth into!
Away from the violence, the plot is advanced along very nicely. I felt that the reveal of Owl Man’s personality and a closer look up at Mr Dowling and his henchmen is a welcome relief for fans who have been feeding on scraps for so long. The change of scenery from Dr Oystein and the angels too is appreciated as we see if the grass really is greener on the other side of the zombies.
A delightful little mystery is introduced at the end too. If you’re like me, then when you’re reading the passage…you will be screaming at the book for it to be revealed!
The ending is very much akin to a lot of Shan’s other work…I can’t say much more without fear of spoiling it. The last few pages have the inevitable feel about it. We always knew that B would end up where she ends up. What we don't know is how it will all turn out. That is the million dollar question here!
Book ten is scheduled for February 2015 so until then…Happy Brain Munching!
