Zom-B Mission by Darren Shan Review

I am now past half way through the series now and I am loving this series more then ever and if it keeps going the way it is then it wont be long before it takes over The Saga of Larten Crespley as my favourite Darren Shan series. Anyway, it is time for a review.



B Smith and the other Angels are relieved to finally receive their first mission to safely escort a group of human survivors from the zombie-infested streets of London to New Kirkham, a barricaded safe haven in the country. But after battling through crowds of undead monsters, B discovers that the survivors of the town do not necessarily represent the best of humanity. And when evil influences make their way to New Kirkham, unearthing demons from B s past, the humans will be forced to choose between being honorable and being safe.

Darren Shan continues his adventures of a teenage zombie trying to right the wrongs of a flawed human life, exploring the morality and ills of society through the lens of an apocalypse gone wrong and a terrifying hell on earth reigning.”

Taken from goodreads

We finished the last book with B being freed from Dan Dan, and it is because of this that we get to see how B has not progressed with making friends with the Angels. I think it is great to see her become more involved in the group as I think some of the character of the Angels are great and I want to see more of them such as Rage and Shane.

The Angels finally get to go on a mission for the first time, this is when we finally get to see if all the training they have been doing  has worked and if they are able to look after the humans as they make their way to New Kirkham. This is something I have been waiting for since we first found out about the Angels, I wanted to see what they did for the humans and having the main group do it was great as we got to find out more about the talents that each of the Angels have.

Of course Darren Shan does a great job of describing everything perfectly, this makes imagining what New Kirkham looks like very easy, and makes for a more enjoyable read. Plus with the way he described how the characters were able to fight was great which is needed in an action packed book like this.

We find out that racists are still around after the castrophe that happened with the world and because of all the different theories about how it all started people who have a darker skin colour are hated by more and more people as they don’t think they can be trusted. This is sickening to me as I don’t get why people are racist especially at a horrible time where everyone should be together. I like the way Darren Shan has done this as it shows the reader just how horrible racist are and how they become the bad guy of the series.

Overall this is a great book in the series and is without a doubt one of my favourites, give this series a read as so far each book has been a great addition.
