Teaser Tuesday: Zom-B

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser comes from Zom-B (Zom-B #1) by Darren Shan:

It was the darkest, most wretched hour of the night when the dead came back to life and spread like a plague of monstrous locusts through the village of Pallaskenry.  The luckiest victims were slaughtered in their sleep, their skulls ripped open, their brains devoured.  The others suffered a far more terrible fate. (p. 1)

With an opening like this you know it's going to be one heck of a zombie book!  I'm about half-way through this and have found it hard to put it down so far.  The main character is hard to love but at the same time he's hard to hate.  His life is not a good or easy one and the author is amazing at bringing that to light as the story progresses.  Just as any good zombie novel, this isn't about the undead... it's about the living and it definitely comes through in this first installment!

Have a teaser to share?
Leave a link below and enjoy your Tuesday!
