About the Author

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.

Having waited a year for this book I couldn't wait to get my teeth into it. The previous four books in the series are excellent and this instalment is no less brilliant. You really do need to have read the previous books to understand the story and characters though. Don't try reading this if you haven't.

Set just after event from The Enemy and running simultaneously to events in The Sacrifice (The Enemy) the surviving kids that reached the Natural History Museum now have new problems to contend with. Not only do they have to get along with a new group of kids that are initially suspicious of them, but there is also someone sabotaging their safe haven, (read The Enemy to learn about who this is).

The museum kids have a bit of a science division set up and are trying to work out what is causing the illness in adults, possibly even to find a cure. They are, however, not fighters. This is where Blue, Maxie, Big Mick and the rest of the gang come in. They can provide the muscle and security needed on an expedition suggested by the lead `scientist', Einstein. He wants to go to a scientific research facility near Heathrow to get medical supplies and research equipment to use in their labs at the museum.

As with most events throughout this series things are never easy and the trip across London gets a bit messy. The sickos cause problems as normal and the two groups of kids argue about how to do things and who should be in charge. A clash of personalities amongst teenagers... Who would have thought it possible?

I have read all of The Enemy series and each time I wish I could fast forward to next year so that I can read the next installment. Charlie Higson's ability to write gross scenario's in an entertaining way keeps you gripped to the story line. He bounces from one scene to another, sometimes fitting in fragments from previous books in the series which you vaguely remember, and cant help going " a-ha" when it registers. I read the first book to see if it was appropriate for my kids age group. I was 39 at the time and bit all my nails off and finished it in 2 days. I found it terrifying. I let my 12 year old daughter read it with some reservation but she coped much better with the really scary bits than I did. Now I wait with baited breathe every September, looking forward to what happens next. Bring it on.

I was extremely excited after waiting a whole year to get my hands on this book, and boy it was definitely not a disappointment.
Charlie Higson is a genius in the way that everything starts to connect together, it's amazing. The book is definitely worth a read if you've read the other books.
The book itself is action packed and makes an advancement on the disease itself. The book provides the background and the cause of the disease along with our favourite characters from The Enemy, the Holloway gang. It's thrilling and action packed and I highly recommend it to anyone.

By Millie on 1 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover
I'm going to start off by saying OMG I absolutely love this cover! The green and black really complement each other and the black pages give it an eerie feel. Great work! This book is the fifth book in the series and is written by the great minD of Charlie Higson. It follows the story of a group of kids who are looking for a
cure as all the adults have been turned into zombies.
I have delved straight into this book without reading the ones before it so many of the background stories went straight over my head. However, the detail and great descriptions put into the book enabled me to read it with understanding of the current plot line. I love post apocalyptic books and have read many books where adults are no longer present such as the Gone series by Michael Grant. I find these series are always very fast paced and The Fallen is no less than this - a definite page turner right from the beginning. The unique factor of the adults turning into zombies set this book apart from other "kids only" novels however sometimes I did feel some features were very similar to those in the other books. This book is set in London, England - my home country. I love how the busy city of London has been turned into chaos in this book with the adults taking over Buckingham Palace, Clock Tower and all the other famous landmarks. This series is a very addictive one but at times I felt the plot had been dragged out with unnecessary parts added into it to create more books. This saddened me as I would rather read a short series or trilogy that is all relevant than a longer one with ramblings.
Overall, it was a great fast paced book with amazing development but sometimes irrelevant parts - a definite read for those who loved Gone by Michael Grant.

Set just after THE ENEMY and taking place simultaneously with THE SACRIFICE, Maxie, Blue and the rest of the Holloway crew arrive at the Natural History Museum just as Paul releases the Sickos in the basement. Despite helping Justin and his nerds survive the attack, the relationship between both groups remains uneasy until head scientist Einstein proposes a trip to a medical research warehouse near Heathrow to get more supplies for their work on a Sicko cure and Blue agrees to take a bunch of fighters to protect him and his nerdlets. Meanwhile the kids left at the Museum have their own problems because something is still hiding in the shadows - something dangerous - and it's picking them off one-by-one ...

The sixth in Charlie Higson's ENEMY SERIES is another dark and twisted survival YA tale, filled with violent scenes as the characters continue their struggle to survive. I loved the Twisted Kids and the cause of the Sicko virus is gloriously explained. However, I missed Sam, the Kid and Shadowman and the way Higson jumps between timelines in books left me frustrated given that the story had previously felt as if it building to a central point. There's also an increasing repetitiveness to the Sicko skirmishes while the wide cast of characters mean that some of the character deaths lack impact. I still enjoy this series and the jaw-dropping cliff hanger ending will ensure I buy the next book but I need the plot to start coming together in a definite direction.

Despite all the action scenes, I found the book a little slow and repetitive until the arrival of the Twisted Kids half-way through. I really enjoyed how Higson introduces them and makes their disabilities a source of strength.
