From the first page, “THE ENEMY” shoots out of the gate at a dead sprint and does not stop. Higson’s prose, fast pace, creativity and originality will keep you on the edge of your seat, yearning for the next page.
We are thrust into a chaotic new world, on the streets of London one year after “the disaster”. Everyone older than 16 has either died from or succumbed to a strange new illness. Adults have become mindless eating machines, leaving the children untouched… Except by the adults themselves.
The author’s ability to telegraph a punch, while still keeping you wondering if you have the right of it, is uncanny. The suspense is built in plain sight. Almost every twist and turn is laid out before you, but in such a way as to make you doubt your own intuition.
