Product Description


Lord of the Flies with zombies . . . tons of nail-biting action (Rick Riordan, creator of the Percy Jackson series)

Brutal, blood-soaked, full of zombies . . . it's ace (FHM)

Product Description

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.


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. Charlie doesn't do Facebook, but you can tweet him @monstroso.

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you wanting more 5 Oct 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant. 18 Sep 2013
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step away from the others in the series. 22 Jun 2014
By zoew

If I'm honest I'm a little disappointed. I've loved the other books in the series but this one boarded the weird train and forgot to get off. The plot is just getting too far from the truth for me to stay engaged. I'm rooting for small Sam and I hope things turn out for him in the end. There should be a bit of a feel good for me rather than just persistent carnage. Excited however to see where the story goes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect as always 17 Feb 2014
By Alex S
I love this series, and after around a year wait (far too long!) I couldn't wait to read The Fallen. My expectations were easily met. While the series may be too gruesome for some, it's gripping and I look forward to the rest of the series. It's worth noting though that you should read the other books in the series first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 9 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book series appeals to me SO much, I absolutely love these books. I'm an 18 year old boy, started reading this series when the first book came out maybe 4 or 5 years ago, and every time I am so pumped for the next stage. This book was an excellent continuation and every book never fails to hit you with a perfect mix of action and death, along with friendships and peace. They also always mix in old characters with new characters, and my favourite part is when different groups of kids that are usually in different areas doing different things meet up, and this book contains plenty of these too. Definitely buy it. Start with the first one though, it gets complicated.
