How many survived the zombie apocalypse?Where do the living hide in a city of the dead?
Who controls the streets of London?
B Smith is setting out to explore...
B is out from underground, picking up from where we left book three, she is weak, hungry and disorientated. Stumbling about she hits the streets of London, among the undead to try and find her way through the new world and what her place in it might be.
You can read this book as a stand alone as Shan does give a brief recap of what you have missed, however if you can I would suggest going back and reading the others. B is determined she won't be attacking humans but she knows what she needs to do in order to survive. Despite being undead and never being able to age, B is growing up fast and trying to adapt to her new way of life. Coming across the undead is not her only problem, there are much worse things than zombies out there and what do they have planned for her?
More death, gore and self exploration, some of the scenes cover innocent and young victims which some readers may find distressing. If you have read the previous and enjoyed you won't be disappointed with this one. B's journey continues, we are offered a bit more insight into what has happened and how our world looks now. I can't wait to see where the next installment takes us, 4/5 for me this time.
Hello Lainy, I enjoyed your review and ZomB City certainly sounds exciting, but I have to say I’m getting a bit fed up with stories about Zombies. Every time I turn on the TV it’s yet another Zombie fest – please let’s have a little less gore and a lot more joy.ReplyDelete
Sorry Darren I’m sure you put your heart into this so please feel free to ignore me – I’m just a grumpy old woman who wants to read about nice things. My grandsons would not agree with me. :)
It is interesting that this is a zombie book old from the point of view of one of the undead. That seems original.ReplyDelete
I would always read a series in order so I would start with the first book.
