The Hunted is the sixth and penultimate book in Charlie Higson’s amazing series following the lives of various groups of children surviving an infection outbreak. This outbreak turned all adults into zombie-like flesh eating maniacs. If you haven’t read the other five books prior to this one you will struggle to fully understand just what is going on as the events and individual characters stories overlap and intertwine throughout the series. References are made to numerous people that have featured in the previous books but may or may not feature in this one so you really should start at book one. You won’t regret it. Read my reviews on them to learn a bit more.

To start with, this book follows Ella, (Small Sam’s sister), who left the safety of the group she was with in London to find a different life in the country. Her story has been completely different to any of the others in that, so far, she has somehow managed to survive by being protected by everyone else. Things didn’t go too well for her at the end of the last book though and she now finds herself with someone she names Scarface. I won’t go into details on what happens as that would spoil things. Needless to say though, it’s a great progression of the story and an important one at that.

Meanwhile, Ed wants to launch a search party for Ella because he stumbled across Sam and helped to get him to safety at the museum. Ella still doesn’t know that Sam is actually alive and has faced quite a journey throughout the previous books. Along the way Ed and his search party face a mix of good things, bad things, new people and old acquaintances but, again, I don’t want to spoil anything by going into too much detail.

I don't quite know how Charlie Higson has done it. He has managed to craft a Young Adult dystopian series, something that is now beginning to feel a little overdone, without simply hanging a gimmicky premise on to thin characters and a cliched plot. This is YA thrills and spills done right.

I have followed these stories and the trials, suffering, horrors and excitement contained within them since the first and each one has gripped me from beginning to end without letting go. Somehow, Higson manages to keep the tension and emotional connection high throughout the series as a whole while also making each episode distinct, fresh and vital to the overarching, increasingly and intricately intertwined storylines.

This novel, the sixth out of a total of seven, is no different. Like the others, it explores new territories, characters and events in the hell scape that is disease-ravaged London, simultaneously expanding and enriching the well-established world he has created while further tying together plot lines and characters arcs previously set up in the previous books.

As before, the whole thing builds to an emotionally fraught yet satisfying climax while also perfectly setting up and spurring on the action to make you thirst for the next instalment. After seven years and a truly epic saga, the final book promises to be an explosive finale. I simply cannot wait.

I would (and do, regularly) recommend these books to anyone interested in Young Adult fiction, dystopian novels, horror, suspense and zombies, from age 10 to 100. Although 10 is just on the cusp of what's appropriate (these books are *seriously* scary and gory, no gentle dispositions here!

Format: Paperback
It’s immediately after THE FALLEN. Ella’s the only survivor of the sicko attack on the hotel – rescued by a grotesquely scarred kid she called Face-ache because he can’t speak. They hide out on a farm near Windsor but it’s not safe – either from the sickos who are building an army that’s moving on London or the local kids, who are out for whatever they can take. Fortunately Ed is at the Natural History Museum, putting together a group of fighters to look for her but they soon find that conditions in the suburbs are just as bad as in London and the kids just as divided ...

The sixth in Charlie Higson’s THE ENEMY SERIES is another slickly plotted, fast-paced and violent affair that advances the overall story arc while also giving more background on what’s caused the sickness. I enjoyed the way Higson brings back some old faces from THE ENEMY and the focus on Ella, who grows as a character while still being a believable scared little girl. I also enjoyed the interaction between Ed and Brooke, which shows how they have both grown over the course of the books and been shaped by their experiences. Having been raised in Slough, I was less thrilled with Higson’s depiction of the Slough kids as a mix of losers and psychos and I would have liked to have seen more of how the Bracknell, Windsor, Maidenhead and Ascot crews were organised (although that would have doubled the length of the book). Once again, Higson closes events with another massive cliffhanger and I will definitely buy the next book to find out what happens.

The relationship between Ella and Face-ache is central to the story here and I thought that Higson did a good job at showing their growing trust while also incorporating their respective backstories.
