Mash up Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist with a teen horror story and what do you get? Oliver Twisted. "FLESH," the woe-begotten moaned at Oliver, baring teeth which were ragged and black. "FLESH" came another moan, and he turned to see two more behind. They began to shuffle towards him, barefoot. The world according to Oliver Twisted is simple. Vampyres feed on the defenceless, orphans are sacrificed to hungry gods and if a woe-begotten catches your scent it will hunt you forever. On the advice of a corpse, Oliver flees his ghastly orphan life to seek his destiny in the dark streets of old London Town, despite the perils of the woe-begotten zombie-infested journey. There he meets the shadowy Dodger, the evil old soul-stealer Fagin, and the menacing Bill Sikes, who is more beast than man. But will Oliver Twisted be the world's salvation, or its downfall?! Like your books for teens to be edge-of-your-seat thrillers with a dollop of literary heritage? Oliver Twisted is the young adult horror mash-up for you.

“Not bad”

This book didn't blow me away, but it was enjoyable. It was a good idea for a story and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen. I haven't scored it higher as it wasn't anything special, but i... More

“Oliver Twisted”

Review courtesy of http://steppingoutofthepage.blogspot.com

I am not usually tempted by books of this type - an idea taken from a classic book, but changed by a new author, adding new ideas. However, I was glad to... More

“Darn good read”

This is a gory fast-paced reimagining (not re-working) of the Oliver Twist story that finds him an orphan in a world dominated by vampires, zombies and werewolves. While it is clearly aimed at younger readers it... More
