The Enemy Series

by
  • (6 reviews)

    When a plague hits the world contaminating anyone older than fourteen, turning them into blood-thirsty undead horrors children are left to fend for themselves. With intertwining narratives, plenty of likeable(and despicable) characters and most importantly heaps of bloody gore Higson creates a sprawling apocalyptic teen-masterpiece of a horror series.

    Charlie Higson is the master-mind behind the bestselling Young Bond series of novels for young adults which have made him a household name among teen book lovers, however, what could be argued to be his greater body of work is The Enemy series for its expertly written blend of horror and action.

    In the series' first instalment we are introduced to the various groups that the series revolves around and to the familiar yet fundamentally different world which children must now learn to survive in. Whether you choose to align yourself with posh-boy David and his Buckingham Palace dwellers, the Morrisons group or the Waitrose group, this is certain to become a personal favourite. The shady morals the children adopt lead asks the question, what would happen if adult supervision desisted? Making the novels fascinating conceptually in addition to being masterful works of teenage-literature.
