Not familiar with this little feature? It's simple, really. Monday Must Reads! is a feature I created to showcase books that I think you, well, Must Read (ha!).
This week's pick is one that was a very pleasant surprise to me. I had actually never heard of it, but saw a stack of free ARC copies at BEA and decided to pick one up. Once I started it, I didn't stop until I flipped the last page. It's gritty and graphic and filled with gruesome zombies. It also ends with a huge surprise that you really don't see coming--which makes for a very fun read! And even better? It's the first in a series! Be sure to add to your TBR lists...

product description from goodreads.com
Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, "It's a big, sprawling, vicious tale...a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!"
Trust me you guys, if you love zombies, this one is definitely for you, so make sure you grab a copy on September 27th!
