    I think this might be the best book of the series so far. No longer are we sat around County Hall talking and training but here the action really begins as B and her Angels are sent on a mission to transport some humans to a "safe" community. Suffice to say this is easier said than done. What I liked about most about this book is how it expanded the Zom-B universe. We've spent so much time with the revitalised like B and until now haven't really been told how the standard humans are doing. In terms of surviving it appears some of them are not doing too bad as we are introduced to the community of New Kirkham. Shan does a great job here of making it convincing, imagining everything a post-zombie apocalypse community would need to consider in order to survive.We also are given some big shocks during the progress of this book. The first comes quite early on and involves one of the series' most likeable characters, Mr Burke. There's a scene involving him which is both completely unexpected and at this point completely unexplained.Our other shock comes towards the end when the drama really escalates. Unlike what one might expect it doesn't involve Mr. Dowling, who is notably absent here once again, and it looks like it might set up the direction for the series from this point. It looks as though the racism storyline from the first book is more important than it first appeared considering what B has to face now. I am still a little frustrated with the format of these books though. It means here we are given a cliffhanger, which I always feel shouldn't happen in a book. I would have preferred a longer book with the next volume coming out later.A great addition to the series which ramps up the action and starts to prepare us for what I feel is going to be a superb and exhausting rest of the series!

    Actual Rating: 3.35 This was an okay read. I thought this one was not as good as the previous three books. However, I did like reading about the more softer and vulnerable side of B's impressive character. Also, I enjoyed the part where she played soccer with the other Angels. Also, I thought the issue of racism was incorporated into the story well with Vinyl's character. I liked the friendship between Vinyl and B as well. I hope the series does get better. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Overall, a good read.

    Review by Amelia (14/15)Zom-B Mission is about a zombie apocalypse which causes massive disruption between the living and the dead. Also there is a twist, there is not just the living and the zombies, there are angels too, and whose jobs are to safely escort the living to camps where they are safe from being bitten or eaten by the zombies. They encounter a lot of obstacles whilst they are delivering a bunch of humans to a camp across town.The main character is a girl called B who works for HMS Belfast on the Board, which gives the angels jobs to take the living to compounds which is a ‘safe haven’ for the living. Whilst on a journey to escort the living to a compound in New Kirkham she bumps into an old friend whom her dad did not like her being with, because her friend was black and her dad was a racist.My favourite part of the book is when a bird touches a child and infects it and turns it into a zombie, the reason that this is my favourite part of the book is because it shows that nature also plays a part in any world, and it makes the whole story more realistic. Also the fact that B’s dad is a racist also makes the story more realistic because even a zombie apocalypse will not change people’s disgusting attitudes.The only thing I disliked about the book was the fact that you had to wait until the middle of the book for it to start getting exciting with all the action.I think that one of the ‘angels’ should of actually been a zombie disguising which would add a twist to the journey.I would recommend this to others, around teenagers because there are some swear words and disturbing scenes throughout the book.I would give this book 5/5.

    Becky (B) has gone through quite a lot in her short life. She lived with an abusive father and then she became a zombie.Now, she has revitalized, and has faced numerous other challenges. A demented clown called Mr. Dowling, a man with extraordinarily large eyes she calls Owl Man, starved and beaten and forced to fight other zombies for her life in the arena, are just a few.You would think that would be enough. No, now in this book, she faces racism at its worst.This is my favorite so far. I know I say that about most of them but it is true. Here, in this book, B has to confront her own racist behavior in the past, and attempts to redeem herself by rescuing survivors in New Kirkham.I so look forward to the next book in this series!

    Another great book in the Zomb series. Here B and some of the other 'Angels' go on a mission to escort some survivors to a safe place called New Kirkham. B meets an old friend along the way, and an old adversary too! A rather sad and disturbing scene with a bird, but I will say no more than that! Ends on a cliff-hanger... when the next one out??

    Loved it! Very interesting ending... Can't wait til July when the next installment comes out! I am always on the lookout for badass female characters and I don't find them as often as I hope but I adore B. How funny that one of my favorite female protagonists is a zombie!

    This series is just getting weirder and weirder. I honestly don't even know what to think anymore. This book was more about B getting her own mission and getting humans to a safer compound with others. Mr. Burke is in Timothy's apartment trying to learn new things about Owl Man and Mr. Dowling when he comes back to the compound crazy. He brings a gun and tries to kill Dr. Oystein calling him a demon. It doesn't make any sense but makes me question Dr. Oystein. There may be more than meets the eye when it comes to him. Emma and Duncan are back in the story and they are the ones that the angels have to transport to a new compound. B finds out that Vinyl is still alive! How crazy!! The story just went into a strange area where the KKK group is forming and raids the compound where everyone is. I just don't really understand the plot so much anymore, but maybe it'll get more interesting I'm not sure.

    3.5 As some of you may know these are not my most favorite books out there. However, I will say that they have been getting better and better as the series goes on. Even though they may not be my absolute favorite I wouldn't discourage anyone from giving them a go. They are quick easy reads, that you can easily buzz through.

    It has been a few months since B's encounter on the HMS Belfast and the Board and she is losing patience and becoming bored. After the death of her artist friend from the hordes of London's undead, B took on the task of keeping his artwork safe and sorting them out. But she wants more from her role as an Angel. She often wonders if there is more or is Dr. Oystein trusting enough of her to give her more of a role.During a soccer match between herself and fellow Angels, suddenly herself and her fellow room mates are called on for their first Angel mission. To escort some humans to a compound or a community for the living.The mission and travelling through the treacherous streets of London seems to go off smoothly but soon they meet up with some more survivors in Hammersmith looking to make their way to the compound as well. As well as B meeting up with an old friend and her first interaction with someone from her past life.Travelling to the compound, the group encounters what other dangers could be out there apart from zombies. Like wildlife.When they finally arrive to the compound, they are welcomed with caution but allowed to be given a tour. While being walked around they encounter racist and bigoted people, bring B back to the days of her abusive father. The Angels are also told that the people in the compound are not the only ones out there, that there are bigoted people out there, waiting for their revolution and re-build the world to suit their ways.The Angels mission suddenly turns into a rescue mission. One that is extremely personal for B and could open up old mental wounds but maybe the killer inside is perfect for their new mission.I liked book seven particularly for the fact that we change location. Being in City Hall and exploring the ruins of London is fascinating because you can't imagine London other than busy and full of activity, not in ruins. But when we are taken out of the London bubble and out into the countryside then we see how exactly the survivors are trying to survive.The scene where the bird comes and encounters one of the children is probably a frightening scene for me but it makes the struggle of the survivors seem more real, that they are so exposed at all times, no matter what they do or how safe they think they are.And the fact that once again, the racism card comes into a major play, which includes one of the biggest racist cult of all time makes it more real. That just because we are in the zombie apocalypse, doesn't mean that everyday things and people's disgusting attitudes evaporate. What is meant to be surviving together for a better day, still becomes the so called survival of the fittest among the living.Again, Darren Shan just doesn't fail to entice and en-capture his readers. Not only is he weaving the story and filling in gaps regarding the survivors but he is giving this group of Angels more confidence in themselves to complete missions but know that their missions don't just end when the orders are finished but when they feel they have done their parts of Angels.

    First of all, I can honestly say I love the cover. It is still creepy, but not as disturbing as the other covers in this series. And just like all the other books you don't find out what the cover means until you read the story.I have to say the story was awesome. But well it is at times a bit much. I mean, we already have zombies, we already have a crazy clown, his crazy followers, a pedophile (since I would say Dan Dan is that) and now we also have the KKK. I don't mind it that much, it makes a good story and Mr. Shan weaves it all together so it seems to all match together. And we already had the theme of racism mentioned several times (B's dad, various other characters), so the KKK thing matches, but it still seems a bit weird to have it together with all the other things we already have.Like all other books, this one also ends with a cliffhanger (gahhhh why???), so I am all curious as to how this will continue. What does the Owl man have to do with the KKK, what will happen to our Angels, and many other questions. Luckily it doesn't take that long for the books to come out, so I can wait. I loved B in this book, she was really awesome and I also felt sad for her. What happened with Burke, how she felt during that time. But I was also cheering for her when she continued with her things, not wanting to drop her friends, her family. She is one kick-ass zombie, and I really like her more and more as the books continue. She has sharp reflects, when that happened with the girl, how fast she was up in that tree, how fast she handled the situation. And she still makes awesome remarks about everything that happens, no matter what situation, she has them ready and uses them. :)There are 2 sad events happening. One involves Burke, and I won't spoil, but I can tell you I was sad. I didn't expect it to happen, and I was kind of hoping it wouldn't happen. Then we have the girl and the tree and what happens there. Poor thing, so happy, so free and then that happens. I totally forgot about the deadliness of the zombie blood. All in all, a totally awesome book, and I can say I am looking forward to the rest of this series, I do hope everything will be concluded nicely since we only have 5 books to go. But I trust in Mr. Shan, and I am sure the ending will be epic.Now I only have 2 wishes: 1. To meet with Mr. Shan (Please visit the Netherlands!) and 2. To read the next book. :)And I would recommend this book to everyone!Review first posted on

    Another success in the Zom-B series by Darren Shan (to me anyway). In this book its been about 4 months since B was held captive to fight as a gladiator. Her and her group of angels have been waiting impatiently to go on a mission to help Dr. Oystein with anything. They finally get the chance to escort a group of humans to a survivor base. Along the way B links up with one of her old friends Vinyl. B was friends with Vinyl even though he was black and her racist father would of beat the crap outta her if he caught her hanging out with him. This is where the racism that played a huge role in the first book comes back into play. Once at the survival base, the angels are allowed in for only a short period of time., where Vinyl gives them a tour. In the base there are racist people who dislike Vinyl because he is black. I find this to be amazing because you'd think in a world like this with dead people who want to eat you, things like racism would die down because it becomes a common goal of all humans to stay alive and work together. Sadly this is not the case. B even hears of rumors that the KKK have come to London and are invading survival camps and getting rid of anyone who is not white. How this organization still manages to function in this world is beyond me. I thinks its ingenious for Darren Shan to make racism a focal point in this and possibly the next book because it shows how no matter how dire a situation, people will still hold on to their own beliefs, no matter how dumb even when they shouldn't. Humans will still hold on to grudges and prejudices even when humanity as we know it could be wiped out. Like I said, Ingenious. B has gone through a lot of changes throughout the series. I don't believe that B was ever a racist like her father but rather that she had to put on a front to be so that she could survive. She genuinely feels bad for throwing that boy to the zombies when she was in the school running for her life and she truly hates what her dad is and how racist he is. Since, you know, she's dead she has a lot of time to think about things. B gets angry at the racists who are living in the survivor base and wants to hurt them but realizes she can't without killing them. She had grown immensely from the scared girl who does whatever her father said to a zombie "woman?" who thinks for herself and does what's right.

    How nice to be able to read the next book in a series just after you finished the last one :)I started "Zom-B Mission", book #7 in the Zom-B series by Darren Shan immediately after finishing "Zom-B Gladiator" and I regret nothing.Story: B Smith and the other Angels are relieved to finally receive their first mission to safely escort a group of human survivors from the zombie-infested streets of London to New Kirkham, a barricaded safe haven in the country. But after battling through crowds of undead monsters, B discovers that the survivors of the town do not necessarily represent the best of humanity. And when evil influences make their way to New Kirkham, unearthing demons from B s past, the humans will be forced to choose between being honorable and being safe.Finally a mission for B and her group of Angels. Dr Oystein took his time to trust them to leave London and now they should escort the human Emma and her child.It was nice to get out of London. I always find a change of location interesting and after a big part of the last book was set on a boat, a restricted area, being on a mission with the characters was interesting and varied. We also get to know new characters. Vinyl, one of B's best friends, appears on the scene. Of course, there's trouble coming B's way.She learns more about her past, but this could affect her future in a negative way.Nevertheless, Rage has a bigger part, yeah :)What is the scary dog up to? Can she trust her companions?Many new questions came up while reading this book and I have no idea how all this will turn out in the end.It makes me wondering how I would react, if I would live in a world where I would never be safe, where I would need to watch out for zombies everywhere I go, where I could not even be safe in with other humans. Can this have a good ending for humanity?Like always, 4 stars for this Shan-book. I'm looking forward to the next books.

    Anyone with a taste for zombies will love this series featuring a tough-as-nails protagonist named B, and some positive takes on zombies. A brief introduction brings readers up to speed, and the action never stops. In this installment B and some fellow Angels (good zombies who have been revitalized, set off on a mission to bring several human survivors to a safe place. Their path is dangerous since they must go through streets and areas filled with zombies who will certainly attack the humans if they realize what they are. But even after the mission is completed, B must return to the sanctuary since a band of white supremacists is en route to the safe place. Readers will find plenty of humor and gore as well as a bit of philosophy in the book's pages--and just when someone thinks he/she is safe, beware. Darren Shan is very, very good at this sort of thing, teasing his readers along from plotline to plotline.

    This was better than the last one, but I still thought it was too short. XDI was actually surprised in this one though, when (view spoiler)[Liz was turned into a revived and the people inside New Kirkham were racists. (hide spoiler)]I hated the way this ended! Best cliffhanger ever! And it's going to annoy me so much because the next book'll start with (view spoiler)[It was 4 weeks ago when we attacked the Ku Klux Klan. (hide spoiler)] It'll annoy me because I wanted an account of the fight! XD Oh well. I'm also shocked with the amount I'm hearing of the Ku Klux Klan lately! I only learnt about them a month ago and I've read/talked/heard about them like 4 times since then! It's weird!That's all I'm gonna write about this one though haha. Don't have too much time.

    I am so happy they finally got out of Country hall into some action! But poor Liz! I was so happy that Declan had found another little kid to play with but when she turned... I was so close to tears. I really don't think I could do what B does even if it is for the better, which is why I admire her. Especially when the KKK invaded New Kirkham and B saved the little boy by killing the Klansman. But Owl Man... I want to know his deal even more! When B followed the dog I expected it to be Mr Dowling or one of his mutants, Owl Man surprised me. And when Shan brought in the KKK That surprised me even more. I really can't wait to read Clan and see how the rest of this unfolds, especially the zombie dog...

    This was a great book in a great series, but it was not my favorite. The writing was very straight to the point, which is a good thing. I like the author’s style of writing. I don’t want to give anything away, but the series is going even farther into themes of racism, as revealed at the end of the book. However, that was also one of the problems. The majority of the book was just thoughts of the main character, B, with little to no action. The book only began to heat up at the end, in a cliffhanger. This was a very fun to read installment in the Zom-B series.

    The Basic Summary: The Angles finally get a mission! They escort a few people to a safety compound, and B is quite ecstatic about it, though saddened by (view spoiler)[ the death of her favorite mentor and teacher, Billy Burke. (hide spoiler)] She reunites with an old friend, gets some fighting in...and then comes to see the biggest horror of her life.My Review: Oh, easily the best book in the series so far. The second through fourth books sucked, but I'm so glad I stuck with the series!!

    As usual the author has delivered a great novel which makes me want to read the book to the very end. the only problem with the book is that the climax to the novel is at the the end of the novel, this really only frustrates me because by the im so immersed in the novel that i find it disappointing for it to end.

    Ok just curious! Thoughts about what's to come. I'm on page 152 and Burke has turned. So I'm wondering is Dr. Oystine is the horrible Mr. Dowling? Or created Mr. Dowling? Or last but not least is Mr. Dowling's brother?

    Another amazing installment in the series. I love how Darren can still keep the twists and turns coming even when he's 7 books in. He's definitely got talent and the way he paints such gruesome imagery is to be admired.

    Some action spices this volume up after a few introspective and quieter books. As usual we get more new questions than answers, but the series is still going strong, and considering how easy it is to pick up and finish one of these in a single sitting, it works quite well in installments.

    Zom-B mission is the 7th part of Becky Smith’s journey in the collapsed city of london and the chaos of the undead apocalypse. After her little adventure with the rich scumbags of the yacht and being rescued she returns to the angels headquarters and, with her new friends, prepare to embark on a real mission after being cooped up in county hall for so long. They are super excited to finally be able to do something meaningful after months of training and exercises. They need to escort a group of survivors to a fortified compound called New Kirkham on the other side of London in the countryside. Becky and her gang of angels head out with serious intentions of completing this mission flawlessly, but they can’t get too cocky because they are risking lives in this chaotic world. I like this book because of the detailed suspense and environment, you really feel what Becky feels during the most important thing in her career so far. I like the way Becky developed to be cooperative and coordinated with her fellow angels during the mission, it really shows how determined she is now after her horrific experiences in this life. I would give this book 5 stars because this book shows suspense and wonder on this life or death journey throughout the ruins of London and it is interesting to see what they run across during this sensitive mission. This was a interesting book and it only got more interesting as it went on.
