Zom-B Baby - Book Review

Zom-B Baby (Zom-B #5)
by Darren Shan

What is it about:
B has spent the last few months bunking with the Angels, a group of teens dedicated to eradicating the evil dead from the face of the earth, beginning with the undead roaming the abandoned wreckage that was once London. But the Angels' mission is a bit more complicated than that, and B takes to the streets of a very changed London to decide: is it a mission really to be believed? But instead of answers, B finds a horror beyond imagining.

What did I think of it:
This one was better than the last, although I'm not too happy about the fact that both the previous book and this one are heavy on religion. I know Shan is playing with lots of different themes for this series, but having to read whole sermons on how God has a plan with the zombies got a bit tiresome. To my relief B was skeptical of all the God talk, but that seemed to change towards the end of this book. I'm hoping this won't turn into a heaven versus hell story.

That aside: the story is moving forwards again. There are some really cool and creepy developments in this book, and I'm curious what will happen next. I'll be reading the next book soon.

Why should you read it:
It's a cool and creepy zombie read.
