The Hunted by Charlie Higson, penultimate in The Enemy Series #6
“The sickness struck people sixteen and older. First it twisted their minds; next it ravaged their bodies. Now the sickos roam the streets, crazed and hungry for young flesh…”
This is hugely graphic story with blood and gore thickly spread. From a writer who feels young people should experience fear to be prepared for later life, he is, to phrase it tamely, obliging. It’s okay, if you have a stomach for zombies and intense horror. This series has a huge following of fans. Charlie Higson can tell a story for sure, interweaving stories and creating complex believable characters, but if you dream about what you read, try Higson’s Young Bond series instead.
