THE DEAD begins one year before the action in THE ENEMY, just after the Disaster. A terrible disease has struck everyone sixteen and over, leaving them either dead or a decomposing, flesh-eating creature. The action starts in a boarding school just outside London, where all the teachers have turned into sickos. A few kids survive and travel by bus into the city. The bus driver, an adult named Greg, seems to be unaffected by the disease. Then he begins to show the dreaded signs: outer blisters and inner madness. The kids escape Greg and end up at the Imperial War Museum. A huge fire in South London drives them all to the Thames, and eventually over the river to the Tower of London. It is there they will meet up with the kids in THE ENEMY in Book 3, THE FEAR.

If you love the television drama series ‘The Walking Dead,’ The Enemy book series by Charlie Higson is for you! ‘The Dead’ is a great sequel to book one ‘The Enemy.’ Now on to books three and four in the series: ‘The Fear,’ and ‘The Sacrifice.’ Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

This book is kind of dark but is nevertheless an epic book. You can imagine it since alot of movies do use this idea. I recommend it for everyone 10+

The Dead is a mile long surpasser than its prequel, "The Enemy"! This book has you gripping the book for the plot twists waiting for you in the next page! It's literally a "killer" book and a must-read for anyone who likes suspense and a heead pounding ending that will leave you crawling on the floor for the next book: "The Fear"!

Next to Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and Year of the Flood, this has been the best post apocalypse series I've read in years.

adults are zombies. Kids: oh crap! Kids run away from zombies. Zombies kill one main character. Kids hide away in big church, simple. Good book.
