LoveReading View on The Fear (The Enemy Series 3)

April 2012 Book of the Month.   Best-selling author Charlie Higson has created a chilling world in his thrilling Zombie series. Not only have all the adults – older siblings and parents – lost their minds and become hopeless has-beens but there is the horrific danger of the Collector. How can the children survive in their broken world and, in particular, how can they keep themselves safe from the child-seeking Collector?  A tense story about survival against the odds, The Fear, the third in the Enemy series, is devilishly creepy and seriously spine tingling. A delight for all those who like to be seriously scared.

The Fear (The Enemy Series 3) Synopsis

He doesn't know it but DogNut is about to set off a chain of events that will affect every kid in the city.

The sickness struck everyone over the age of fourteen. Mothers and fathers, older brothers, sisters and best friends. No one escaped its touch. And now children across London are being hunted by ferocious grown-ups ...they're hungry. They're bloodthirsty. And they aren't giving up. DogNut and the rest of his crew want to find their lost friends, and set off on a deadly mission from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace and beyond, as the sickos lie in wait. But who are their friends and who is the enemy in this changed world?
