After escaping a secret military complex amid the zombie apocalypse, B roams the streets of a very changed London, dirty and dangerous and eerily quiet, except for the shuffling of the undead. Once again, B must find a way to survive against brain-eating zombies --and now also against those who have seized control of the city. With danger lurking around every corner and no one to trust, B must decide whether to join the creepy Mr. Dowling in exchange for his protection. When everyone around you is dead, where do you turn for help?
~My Thoughts~
This fell so flat and boring after the high of the ending of the second book, Zom-B Underground. Just, ugh!! It makes me want to pull out my hair and I freaking love my bright auburn hair!
If I actually liked the main character I think I would have enjoyed this so much better! However, I dislike her and don’t really give a fuck to what happens to her. Sad, I know. It’s even sadder that I want to continue to read this series. The endings are always a pretty decent cliffhanger!
If you’re not a fan of cliffhangers then you should stay clear of this zombie series. You should also stay away from this series if you like to know where the storyline is going and trust me, you won’t know where the fuck it’s going for this series! I’m so confused and wondering what on earth the author is thinking! This book makes me think he should have stopped at number two but I understand why he couldn’t, because of that freaking cliffhanger!
The journey for B in this book is interesting and like I said, if I actually cared for her I would have enjoyed this book so much more. But since I don’t, this one fell so low and after reading the second book I honestly thought this series was looking up!
Oh so wrong!
Honestly I don’t see the point of this series! I have no connection to B and there’s really no other characters to get connected to, so the reader is just stuck. I’m just torn!
Overall, after the ending of Zom-B Underground I had high expectations for this one. That was a bad decision because this was so lackluster. The few exciting things that happened around B were very few and far apart, making this a dull read. I was so excited to see more of the creepy clown yet he only showed up until the end, the freaking end! Ugh, where is this series going?! Honestly I don’t recommend you read Zom-B because once you start this series, you won’t be able to stop. 
P.S. I like the writing and the author has some good ideas but if only I liked the main character and the author actually executed the ideas better, this would have been an more enjoyable read....

It will make you shrill

Sweet Readings Everybody!
