Staff Reviews

In Charlie Higson's fantastic The Enemy series, everyone over 16 has been struck with a devastating disease that turns them into zombie-like creatures. With those who protected them now flesh eating monsters, the children and teens who survived band together just to keep surviving. In The Enemy, a group of children who have sheltered in a supermarket since the disease struck now plan to make their way to Buckingham Palace, which is rumored to be a beacon of light in the post apocalyptic darkness. With all the adults dead, or worse, The Enemy is like Lord of the Flies- with zombies! What's not to like?

— Thomas


In the wake of a devastating disease, everyone sixteen and older is either dead or a decomposing, brainless creature with a ravenous appetite for flesh. Teens have barricaded themselves in buildings throughout London and venture outside only when they need to scavenge for food. The group of kids living a Waitrose supermarket is beginning to run out of options. When a mysterious traveler arrives and offers them safe haven at Buckingham Palace, they begin a harrowing journey across London. But their fight is far from over-the threat from within the palace is as real as the one outside it.

Full of unexpected twists and quick-thinking heroes, The Enemy is a fast-paced, white-knuckle tale of survival in the face of unimaginable horror.
