About the Book

Darren Shan's thrilling 12-part "horror with a social conscience" series continues.

"In my experience, people are pretty much the same wherever you go-decent, honest folk who care about family and friends, welcome strangers and only want the good things from life. But certain sections of our society and media want us to believe differently. They try to paint certain groups as vicious threats, to tar all people of a certain race or religion with the same brush.

Of course that's nonsense, yet many people believe the lies, especially people who (like me when I was younger) don't travel much or get to mingle with people from other cultures. I felt I had to do what I could to get young readers to question the ways of their elders, to decide for themselves what is right or wrong, to look for the truth behind the cloud of lies. The main message I wanted to impart was: question everything! But I didn't want to write a dry, serious, message-laden book about racism. That's not my style. It needed to be an exciting, fast-paced, action-packed story. I remembered how George A. Romero had used zombies to hold a mirror up to society in his early films and felt that I could do something similar, use them as a way to get us thinking about the real monsters in our midst." - Darren Shan
