The Enemy is among us . . .
First the sickness rotted the adults' minds. Then their bodies. Now they stalk the streets of London, hunting human flesh.
The Holloway crew are survivors. They've fought their way across the city and made it to the Natural History Museum alive--just barely. 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 they must venture down unfamiliar streets, where it isn't only crazed, hungry sickos who lurk in the shadows.
In this fifth terrifying entry in Charlie Higson's Enemy series, suddenly it's not so clear who--or what--the enemy is.

PRAISE FOR THE ENEMY
The Enemy grabs you by the throat . . . and bites off your ear. It's kids versus zombies and no one is playing nice. The action--and boy, is there action--takes us through a London transformed by the unexplained illness that has turned every adult into a shuffling, drooling, kid-crunching machine. Bonus: zombie royals. Sheer fun."
