Writing From The Tub | 11 March 2015 | Carly

So, the end of this grisly, fast-paced series is drawing to a close. Can you believe we’re already on book ten? I remember when I received a copy of the original Zom-B and my mind was blown by the twist. Since then we’ve seen B go from strength to strength…and then get picked apart piece by piece in Zom-B Family.

Zom-B Bride opens with B being carried through the London underground by the zombie babies, until they reach Mr Dowling’s horrifying lair. The descriptions of his underground hideout were every bit as creepy as I wanted them to be and would send a shiver down even the most hardened horror fan’s spine.

As Zom-B Bride unfolds, we learn more about Mr Dowling, how he came to be and what sort of person he is. It was pretty interesting to discover his backstory and it did make me look at him in a slightly different light…though it’s pretty clear he’s always going to be one of the most off the rails characters in this series!

As is always the case with the Zom-B books, I can’t talk too much about the plot as there are so many twists and surprises that I don’t want to spoil anything, but I can safely say that if you’re a fan of this series you won’t be disappointed. Zom-B Bride takes things further than it ever has before and truly sets the wheels in motion for what I’m sure is going to be an explosive finale.

There are only two books to go and I’m already sad that we have to say goodbye to this series so soon – it’s been one of the most unique stories that’s been released in years and the characters, particularly B, will be sorely missed.
