Blurb from Goodreads


After spending the last few months wandering around London--a city filled with the dead--B Smith has given up hope for any sign of normal human existence. But then B finds strange signs all over the city--a "Z" plus red arrows. Following them, B finds The Angels-- a group gathered in the hopes of combating the evil dead and the forces that introduced them. But all is not as it seems and it's up to B to find out: what battle are they truly waging?



My Review


This is book 4, if you haven't read the previous books I would recommend you do so as I think you get much more out of the story knowing the previous parts. B is out and about, going around London and not finding anything much apart from zomheads. She has followed the Z & red arrows and come across a group, a safe haven, a place she can be herself. As B starts to understand what the place is about and their mission, she has to decide if this is right for her.

So, we certainly get a few more answers in this book and a focus as to where the story is headed as well as a bit more insight into the dreaded clowns ans his minions. Again some scenes are gross and there is one particularly harrowing scene with a child so be warned. I felt there was a wee bit of preachiness in this book, religion and again racism which has featured in the previous books especially if you know B's background.

Overall, if you have enjoyed the series so far you will like this one. B is further developing who she is and whilst she won't physically age she is certainly maturing and growing as a "person". 3/5 for me this time, I have the next installment and I will be reading it soon, I am quite keen to see where Shan takes it.

  1. This very much reminds me of in The Walking Dead where they're following the signs to "Terminus". I actually really enjoy Zombie related things. Especially movies. Unfortunately, my boyfriend hates them. I would recommend Under My Skin by Zoe Markham - it's an exceptionally interesting YA take on zombies / Frankenstein!

  2. This sounds interesting premise. I read one recently Survival Ties by Trisha Leazier. It was really good. I was hooked in the story!

  3. Great review.

    I think that this type of fiction is ideal to delve into issues such as race and religion. With that, when such commentary becomes simplistic and preachy, it falls flat and goes nowhere.
