Zom-B Gladiator by Darren Shan Review

This is the sixth book in the series and it is weird to think that I am halfway through the series and the story is already so good, I can’t wait to get onto the next book. Anyway, it is time for a review.


The Story

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, B Smith has decided to live– and to fight for good as long as possible. However, London is overridden with brain-eating undead and swarming with human mercenaries whose sense of right and wrong dissolved when society did. When they lay a trap, B is captured. And it’ll take dozens of battles–and the fight of a lifetime– to escape.

Filled with gripping, bloody action sequences, the sixth book in Darren Shan’s horrifying Zom-B series promises the fright– and the fight– of your life.

Taken from goodreads

Going from the last book where all it did was give people different reasons to believe in God or not, this book is totally different and does loads to add to the story as well as introduce some new character that you are either going to hate or despise depending on your morals. This is the Darren Shan I have come to love.

At the end of the last book we find B going back to the Hall and getting into the Groove Tube, this book takes place not long after B wakes and we find that B has come to the decision to not make friends anymore as she doesn’t want to feel hurt for anyone or for them to feel anything if they die. The book revolves a lot around this fact and it comes into play more when B gets kidnapped by the people who tried to kill her in book 2.

For me the book doesn’t seem to kick in until B gets kidnapped as they seem to be doing a lot of the same stuff as in the other books such as going on a search mission to see if they can find any survivors. But when she does get kidnapped then trust me the book gets very interesting very quickly and I didn’t put it down when it happened.

She is taken to a boat she had tried to gain access to when she was traveling around London but was shot at, it turns out that the boat is owned by 6 people, a mixture of politicians, rich people and a prince. They all think they are better than anyone else and seem to think that in a few years’ time they are going to be the people who are going to be controlling the country, of course B being B she uses her charm to offended them in minutes giving the book a nice bit of humour before we find out what the main purpose of her kidnapping was.

I loved this book and thought the story was great as it kept you gripped for the whole read and it makes you want to jump straight into the next book.

If you want to read the book then here is an amazon link for you to buy it:
