The Fallen by Charlie Higson is the fifth awesome book in The Enemy series. First the sickness rotted the adults' minds. Then their bodies. Now they stalk the streets, hunting human flesh. The Holloway crew are survivors. They've fought their way across London and made it to the Natural History Museum alive - just. But the fight will never end while the Enemy lives, unless there's another way. . . The kids at the museum are looking for a cure. All they need are medical supplies. To get them means a journey down unknown roads. Roads where not only crazed, hungry sickos hide in the shadows. SUDDENLY IT'S NOT SO CLEAR WHO - OR WHAT - THEY'RE FIGHTING. The fourth terrifying part of Charlie Higson's bestselling Enemy series. The Enemy is among us. . . ** 2013 is the year of zombies, with Brad Pitt's World War Z and Nicholas Holt's Warm Bodies films hitting cinemas. ** 'Lord of the Flies with zombies' - Rick Riordan, creator of the Percy Jackson series. ** Charlie Higson is the bestselling author of Young Bond, and creator of The Fast Show. ** Perfect for bloodthirsty fans of 28 Days Later and Darren Shan's Zom-B series. Charlie Higson started writing when he was ten years old, but it was a long time before he got paid for doing it. On leaving university he was the singer in a pop group (The Higsons) before giving it up to become a painter and decorator. It was around this time that he started writing for television on Saturday Night Live. He went on to create the hugely successful comedy series The Fast Show, in which he also appeared. Other TV work includes Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) and Swiss Toni. He is the author of the bestselling Young Bond books, and The Fallen is the fifth book in his current horror series, The Enemy.

The beginning was kinda slow, but towards the middle it became really good! Another great book in the series.

This book was great! Charlie Higson never fails to write a novel that gets the heart pumping, adrenaline rushing, and teeth crushing! I've read all of his The Enemy books, and I've got to say, he is a very talented writer. His books, while very science fiction, are also very realistic. He brings the theme to London, he brings the scientific explanation for the disease that turns people over 16 into 'sickos', 'adults', 'zombies', and other nicknames for those that are the enemy. I love how he describes the characters, how he makes you feel for them, and how he makes you believe you are in those books, living these things that the characters are living. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Charlie Higson is a talented author for kids and possibly adults that like science fiction, gore, horror, danger, and more!

The Fallen - The Enemy Series - Book 5 by Charlie Higson – another AWESOME book! If you love the television drama series ‘The Walking Dead,’ The Enemy book series by Charlie Higson is for you. The books in the series are: ‘The Enemy’ (2009), ‘The Dead’ (2010), ‘The Fear’ (2011), ‘The Sacrifice’ (2012), ‘The Fallen’ (2013), and I believe yet to be published ‘The Hunted’ (2014), and then perhaps the final book in the series ‘The End’ (2015). For a taste of what you will read in book one, Google < the-enemy.co.uk > and open ‘The Enemy/The Dead – Trailer – You Tube.’ Also see on You Tube - The Enemy by Charlie Higson – ZOMBIES. Another fantastic teenage rated series to check out is the six novel Gone Series by Michael Grant starting with ‘Gone.’ Doctor-at-Bass! Taylor A.
