Charlie Higson's "The Enemy" is the first in a jaw-dropping zombie horror series for teens.
Everyone over the age of fourteen has succumbed to a deadly zombie virus and now the kids must keep themselves alive.
When the sickness came, every parent, police officer, politician - every adult fell ill.
The lucky ones died. The others are crazed, confused and hungry. Only children under fourteen remain, and they're fighting to survive.
Now there are rumours of a safe place to hide. And so a gang of children begin their quest across London, where all through the city - down alleyways, in deserted houses, underground - the grown-ups lie in wait.
But can they make it there - alive? "Higson has got the balance of blood and gore just right". ("Daily Mirror"). "Clever ...fast-paced ...inventive". ("Guardian"). Charlie Higson is the author of the bestselling "Young Bond" series of novels for young readers, including "Silverfin" and "Double or Die", and the spine-tingling, teen zombie-horror series "The Enemy".
Can't wait for the next instalment? This edition contains the first chapter of the mind-blowing first chapter of the second book "The Dead". Check out website for more blood, more zombies and more terror.
