Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this standalone Enemy series novel, DogNut, Coutney, Olivia, Al, and Felix continue their London search for lost friends and lovers. Like Higson's earlier teen novels, The Fear features individualized characters, a believable survivalist plot, and sudden spurts of danger. An adoirt dystopian novel.

VOYA - Jessica Miller
One year after the disaster that turned all adults into diseased cannibals, London's surviving kids have found ways to protect themselves from the Sickos. Micro-civilizations have been created in secured locations like the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Many still wonder, though, what may have happened to the siblings and friends that they were parted from on the route to safety. A group of ten kids, led by DogNut, a tough sixteen-year-old, decide to leave the relative security of their home at the Tower of London to seek out friends and siblings. The journey takes them through a dangerous path that leads them not only into deadly Sicko territory, but also into a struggle amongst the surviving groups of kids, fighting for power in the heart of London. Unfortunately, they discover that the Sickos are gaining new skills and have begun to work together and now, only the luckiest will survive. The third book in Higson's terrifying zombie series will continue to enthrall horror fans. Less adventurous readers, though, may want to ease into the genre with a less graphically violent world. Higson's readers soon learn that, while the action is non-stop and the world-building is well done, characters may be killed off at any time, so attachments are often cause for despair. Genre fans, though, will be happy to immerse themselves in a world where danger lurks around every corner, and gruesome, grisly deaths are frequent and heart-stopping. Reviewer: Jessica Miller
