B. Smith - part-time derelict snot and full-time zombie

Roughly six months after the apocalypse has come and gone, and a few days after B's escape from the government facility, B sets off to explore what's left of London. Annd, that's pretty much it.

There's a few fun moments, such as when B discovers the extent of her zombie powers or when she meets the undead baby for the first time. Darren Shan does (as always) a great job interweaving the macabre into his stories - I couldn't have been the

That cover is BEAUTIFUL! Extremely creepy and well-designed!

After reading:

As all the other Zom-B books, I loved this one. I really did. It was a very good story. And that cliffhanger, AHHH! I need Zom-B Angels now!

So I just finished Zom-B City by Darren Shah.

It's the 3rd book in the Zom-B series.

Rating: 3.5/5🌟

If you guys haven't read the first 2 book then stop reading this coz It might spoil those book for you.

The story starts where the 2nd book ended, when Brian got out of the military underground complex and now she is in the abandoned city of london crawling with mindless dead zombies.

This book story is basically how Brian struggled with the city zombies and how she dealt with them.

The continuation of this story is intriguing. I wasnt sure the setup would sustain but little twists and well set up scenario keeps this a very good read.
And if more people read it they'll belive me when I say clowns are bloody evil and should ve avoided at all costs.

Recommends it for: Shansters, Zombie fanatics, People who like GROSS stuff!
Recommended to Ninth by: Numey Berry (She sent me the first two books, thats the reason I'm onto this third book)
Weird Underground Complex where many revitaliseds and reviveds were being experimented upon... Something went zeriouzly wrong!

Anyway, our badass protagonist B made it out! Zooray!

So- B is out. B is free. B is free to explore - THE CITY!

Welcome to London, B's City. As readers who've read the previous book well know, it's been more than 6 months since the Zombies attacked the school and many other locations. So, naturally, with so many bones-sticking-out-of-their-hands-and-toes, awesome-nose-and-e

This series is really improving! B's interactions in this book are so insanely varied. We meet all sorts of new characters. The religious group is the typical religious fanatics that actually cracked me up. The artist with a very unique perspective not to mention the two different factions B is stuck between. Hunters and the zombies and mutants.
This set the stage for the world a bit better but no real understanding of the who, what, when or why and that is driving me nuts!

It's getting better! I still don't like B and there's possibly too many players in it but ... I'm enjoying it enough to keep reading!

This was an okay read. This was an improvement from book 2 and a definite improvement from book 1. I am now interested to see where this story might go. I think the characters and the writing got better in this book. Hopefully it continues to get better. I think this series has the potential to be a good one. The ending was good. I can't wait to read Book 4. I heard that book 4 is where the story really begins, so I can't wait. Overall, an alright read.

I feel like this series has been solid three star books the entire time and I think that's largely because they are so darn short. I know I should be reviewing even easier because of this, but it really impacts the quality of the story itself.
B still hasn't done much. We have quite a few interesting characters that are short lived (some literally). But other than her running around the sitting and her running into the "owl man" after, not much has happened. How many books are even in this serie

Honestly, this book was great. I'm still missing Shan's old writing style but this is just a fantastic book. I can't wait to continue reading this series!

Imagine this. You're strolling through whatever the zombie equivalent of a "park on a nice day" is, having a good, reasonable, zombie-filled time, when you round a corner, and there's a horrific scene playing in front of you. And I mean horrific to someone who's become accustomed to zombies. That's how this book plays out. It's a joyful zombie experience for about two thirds of the book, and then you're slapped in the face with all the scary bad things. And Darren Shan does it all delightfully.

When all hell breaks loose in the underground science lab containing the revitalized zombies, B is miraculously able to escape. After witnessing the flame throwers, chainsaws, and other instruments of violence used against the revived zombies and any humans unlucky enough to get in the way, B is determined to find somewhere to hole up by herself.

Dressed in multiple layers, wearing sunglasses and an Australian-style Outback hat, she is able to withstand the sunlight enough to head toward home. B

This book feels like an interlude. Since the books in this series are so short, it's almost like Darren Shan is catching us up on what the city is like while B has been busy. Sort of like, a day in the life of a lucid zombie. But boy these cliff-hangers get me every time! I will for sure read the next book!

Yet more twists and turns in this wonderful series. Darren Shan keeps you guessing, keeps you on your toes, but also let’s you glide along at ease with the story. I’m never disappointed with where he takes his novels

It was good just like the first two books, but it got pretty weird. I guess I'll just have to read the rest to make sense of all of it.

This series is really growing on me. I'm enjoying seeing the world development going on, and this novel especially made me want to keep reading. It's an interesting Zombie world that Darren Shan has created here, with lots of secret motives and mystery plots going on.

Zombie Becky Smith has escaped the underground (Book 2) and she doesn't really know why, but she is definitely different from other zombies. She can speak and think...she is what is called a revitalized and this third book examines B in London trying to get to humans/soldiers to tell them she is different and offer her blood to be tested and help in any way she can. But, this is not simple, when the world has been overrun by zombies and also mutants commanded by the scary clown figure, Mr. Dowli ...more

Still think the series is just okay, but they left me with a nice cliffhanger and is making me curious as to what is going to happen. Seems to be getting a little better. I will continue on and see where it goes for now.
