Charlie Higson’s THE ENEMY Series

higson collectionIt’s no big secret that Charlie Higson’s The Enemy series is one of my YA series. I’ve been telling everyone who will listen that these books are required reading for those looking for a YA series that isn’t afraid to push the envelope (imagine if the film 28 Days Later was turned into a YA series, and you’ve got an idea of what The Enemy books are like). The series takes place in London after a deadly plague has killed most people over the age of fourteen. The adults that haven’t been killed have been turned into insane cannibals that prey on children. Each book follows a group of kids as they struggle to stay alive against the deadly hordes of “sickos.” The fifth book in the series, The Fallen was recently released in the U.K., and since I don’t want to wait until it comes out here in the States in 2014, I went ahead and bought it. In fact, that’s what I did with the second, third, and fourth books in the series. The Enemy books are all intense, filled with violence, horror, and Higson is not known for sparring his main characters, so don’t get too attached to anyone, becuase you never know whose going to meet a gruesome fate. Look for a review of The Fallen sometime in the next few weeks.
