English
series

review 1: I saw this book on the shelf at the library and grabbed it purely based on the title alone. I love zombies, I love gladiators, so a combination of the two seemed like the perfect match, right? What I didn't realize until I started reading is the audience it is aimed at. Yeah a li...

review 1: I read this book because my friend Tanner was reading it, and said it was pretty good. I'm also into things like zombies so I thought it would be a good book. The story takes place in the present time in London. It goes around London from place to place with the main character. T...

review 1: I would have to say that this book was really good and was one of the books that got me into reading. What got my attention was the map at the beginning of the story that gave a feeling of adventure and got me wanting to be part of this adventure. What got me satisfied after read...

review 1: Darren Shan's engaging zombie series continues with Becky Smith and the Angels trying to keep the humans safe from zombies. As they travel with the evil Daniel Wood, B is torn between doing the honorable thing and doing the thing that will prevent more lives from being lost. The ...

English

review 1: I have to say that the best part of this book was the chapter where Darren imagines a rescue scene in which Larten doesn't die. I already knew when the Vampeneze Lord was announced that it was Steve (especially when he came back), but I wasn't so sure about who was going to die o...

review 1: Had to ruminate on this one for a day. I wasn't really convinced I was going to read the second one, once all the zombie stuff actually got going. It's a little gorier than I like my zombie books, even with skimming the gore there seemed to be a lot. But then the end had 2 real...

review 1: The Zom-B series by Darren Shan has been a blessing to anyone that has followed his career throughout the years. Now, with Zom-B Gladiator, readers have had their questions answered from things that weren't fully answered or explored in the previous novel, Zom-B Baby. The series ...

review 1: All I could say about this book after I finished it was “Wow”. It took awhile for me to get into this book. I thought it was a bit fanciful being about a hit-man and written by an author who usually writes YA zombie books; but once I was hooked. I couldn’t put it down.Lady of the...

review 1: For starters, I'm a huge zombie fan, so I was intrigued by the title immediately. However, I was so disappointed with this book that I won't even include it in my zombie collection despite the nice cover. The book lacked everything most people like in books: good plot, well-devel...

review 1: I decided to read this book because my daughter raved about The Cirque Du Freak series so much that I put it to the top of my pile. The story is unlike anything I've read lately and manages to merge crime and mystery with the supernatural. The characters are superb, I couldn't de...
Die Toten, die ich rief (2013)
language
English
4.18 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Ghosts, hauntings, assassins, double- dealing, romance, everything but the proverbial kitchen sink was thrown into this breathless rush of a novel. There is no time to pause and reflect, just go with it and hold on to your seat. This is a cleverly constructed book which challeng...
De geboorte van een moordenaar (2011)
language
English
4.28 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I think that this book gives me a surprising ending of Larten's emotions and reactions across from his confidence of changing his whole life. In the beginning of the book, Larten meets Sebra, a vampire that he wanted to be a vampire assistant. He's been confident for years after ...

review 1: After the horrific attack on the boat, Larten is almost at the end of his tether, disgraced by what he has done, alone and cold, trapped in Greenland with a baby, he's not sure if he can go on. Even Vampires have to give up sometime. But he then finds the legendary Ice Tomb, a sa...

review 1: I really really don't like the main character. Maybe it's just me, but I have trouble caring about her problems. I don't know. I'm just not getting into the story as much as I'd like to. The whole God VS. Satan thing left a bad taste in my mouth, and I really disliked that the st...

review 1: I was on one of my once a century trips to Sydney with my parents (even though we’re in Canberra, 2 ½ hours away from Sydney), we rarely go there. So we were in Sydney to see Twelth Night, which was really good by the way, great acting, great set, great directing. Okay, moving on...

review 1: The first novel in Shan's The City trilogy was a fast-paced thriller. It was a relentless ride to a satisfying finish. The second entry, Hell's Horizon, shifts the tone a bit. It's more of a detective story - a "whodunit" taking place parallel to Procession of the Dead. The stori...

review 1: This series was really good. It wasn't exactly intellectual, but any book written like that (looking at you... literary fiction) just feels stuck up and only worthy of being burned.It was heart-wrenching, the beginning. I'm not going to tell anyone what happens (but to be honest,...

review 1: I chose this book because I had read the previous one and I decided to continue on. The story starts off right after the events of Birth of a Killer where Seba recommended Larten and Webster to go enjoy themselves before committing to the clan. Larten and Webster join a pack of y...

review 1: I think this is the type of book for people like myself ( enjoy reading horror) to read and enjoy. It is full of excitement, thrills and much more. In the book Darren Shan is the main character. He will take the readers on an exciting journey as they read the book. From a normal...

review 1: Carrying straight on from book 1, Larten is geting used to being a vampire, but that doesn't mean he likes all that comes with it. Fed up of all the rules, training and hassle he sets off for a bit of freedom, taking Wester with him. Wester has also been turned into a Vampire by ...

review 1: Larten has really changed in this book. In the previous book he was young and hot-headed, but while still hot-headed he has grown a lot and gained many more experience. For example, he met the Lady of the Wilds, he decided to leave his training and he also declined to train with ...

review 1: Another great, frustrating, adventure. I don't know why I continue to submit myself to this torture every 3 months or so. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment and love my periodical Zom-B fix. Either way this latest installment, like the previous forrays into mental torture, was am...
