Darren Shan, New York Times bestselling author of Cirque Du Freak, The Demonata, and the Saga of Larten Crepsley series has announced Zom-B, the new zombie series for young adults.
When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke. B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks. That is, until zombies attack. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.
A twelve-book series, installments will confront issues such racism, the politics of fear and survivalism, martial law, and religion.
The first in the series hits shelves on October 16th, 2012.
