Are you a Zombie with employment issues? Do you feel like you haven’t got a leg to stand on? Are your rights currently being violated? Are you being treated like a second class citizen? Would you like a hand? Well look no further than Z.I.R.M. The Zombie International Rights Movement is here to serve you. Protecting the rights of Zombies across Nibiru from death onwards. Where life stops, we start…. The Revolution is coming!
Rhaul is not your ordinary vampire. He believes in the Accord his Great Grandfather fought so hard for, and that his father and mother upheld and tried to build on before their untimely accident that rendered them permanently dead rather than just undead.
With Uncle Derek now in charge, Rhaul fears Yomi will slip back into the dark days before the Accord, where anyone who isn’t a vampire is nothing…
Fast paced and laced with dead-pan humour, Z.I.R.M. is a delightfully dark read for Upper Key Stage 2 and beyond.
B.B. Taylor has created a world of creatures of the night who face many of the problems those of us in the world of the living face every day: the battle for equality and fair treatment for all. I loved the Librarian and her importance to The Movement; that she wields the knowledge to unite the people and bring freedom to Yomi.

One lucky reader hasn’t had to wait for weekly instalments…
I love scary books, so when Miss Cleveland said she had one about vampires, werewolves and zombies, I couldn’t wait to read it. This is such a great short read. B.B. Taylor has written a really funny book that tackles prejudice without being preachy. I loved Viola the Librarian. She’s fierce, funny and deadly. It makes me glad that not all librarians have axes! I can’t wait for Volume Two!
I have just finished Z.I.R.M & I LOVED it! I really did. The complexity of Rhaul; his want to progress Yomi and Nibiru, but his lack of courage & background make his such a loveable character. His reluctance to take over after his uncles death makes him even more likeable. Cana is a great strong character and i love how she wants to be better, be stronger and become a business women. I LOVE Viola! sweet innocent but deathly sinister Viola! brilliant character.
The graphic parts of the book were a thrill to read and the pace was perfect. it may be 58 pages but it didnt feel like the story was rushed or there wasnt enough detail. There was plenty of gore which is great and some very funny parts that made me chuckle!
I honestly loved it and found it a perfect mixture of fun & gore, yet not over done on it, just enough to set the scene.
Loved the mental picture of Yomi, the characters, their mannerisms and personalities that it brought to my mind.
