The Enemy by Charlie Higson
Published by Puffin Books, 2009

When the sickness came, every parent, policeman, politician and adult fell ill. The lucky ones died. The Others who survived are crazed, confused and hungry. Only children under fourteen remain, and are fighting to live. With rumours of a safe place to hide, a gang of children journey across London, through alleyways, and deserted houses, underground where the grown-ups lie in wait. Can they make it to their destination - alive?

The relationships between the kids, change on an ongoing basis as they try to survive, with conflicts understandably occurring when opinions clash. The exploration of human emotions gives the novel an added dimension.

If you are a Darren Shan fan who enjoys Anthony Horowitz and Robert Muchamore you should also enjoy this book.

Charlie Higson is the author of the bestselling Young Bond series. The Enemy, not for the faint-hearted, is the first story in his brand new action-horror series for older teens.
