Secrets. Everyone has them. But what if your secret is something so unthinkable that you can't even admit it to yourself? Lily Herne returns with Death of a Saint, the next installment in the Deadlands series.
Some secrets are so unthinkable you can't even admit them to yourself . . .
Lele, Ginger, Ash and Saint - aka the Mall Rats - are hiding out in the Deadlands, a once-prosperous area of Cape Town, now swarming with the living dead. Exiled from the city enclave for crimes against the Resurrectionist State, the Rats face a stark choice: return and risk capture - or leave Cape Town and go in search of other survivors.
But what if the rest of South Africa is nothing but a zombie-riddled wasteland? Now Lele has discovered the truth about why the lurching dead leave them alone, she can't bring herself to tell the rest of the gang. And she's not the only Mall Rat harbouring a dangerous secret . . . Can the friends' survive on the road if all they have is each other? Or will their secrets tear them apart?
I don't know how to express how completely besotted I am with the Mall Rats series...I've not adored a book so much for a long, long time...Go buy yourself a copy that's an order! In fact, write to me and I'll send you a copy ... my life seems to have become a mission to make sure the world has read this book. It's worth the time and money really, honestly, truly. - The Guardian
