Overview


The Sacrifice picks up after Small Sam and The Kid arrive at the Tower of London at the end of The Dead. Though Sam finds safety and friendship at the Tower with Jordan Hordern's crew, he can't settle down. The only thing he wants is to be reunited with his sister, Ella. Despite Ed's protests, Sam and the Kid strike out westward, through the no-go zone.

Meanwhile, Shadowman is tracking Saint George across north London, watching him build up his army. Shadowman knows that Saint George is an extremely dangerous threat, but no one will take his warnings seriously.

Some answers to the questions we've been wondering about--What is the Disease? Where did it come from? Is there a cure?--are addressed by an unexpected source: a diseased adult nicknamed Wormwood who has the ability to speak, though his ravings are difficult to decipher.

Unspeakable horror, edge-of-the-seat suspense, and stomach-churning plot twists continue in Book 4 of Charlie Higson's masterful Enemy saga.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

After the violent events of The Dead, Small Sam and the Kid find a few weeks of peace and friendship in the Tower of London, but they are too restless to remain in safety. The street fights they witness are only the beginning of the fast-breaking events of this new entry in Charlie Higson's apocalyptic Enemy series. Zombie-like surprises seem to be waiting behind every dark corner. A dystopian delight; editor's recommendation. (P.S. This edition contains exclusive Barnes & Noble content: a battle map showing London routes and wartime locales.)

VOYA - Ava Ehde
This suspenseful, longed-for, fourth novel of the Enemy series takes the reader into the heart of London where the kids must now venture out to find family or replenish their food and water in order to survive. The disaster last year created a sickness which either wiped out everyone over the age of fourteen or turned them into diseased zombies with an insatiable hunger for children. Courageous, small Sam and his creative, funny, bright, somewhat mad sidekick, the Kid, manage to arrive safely at the tower, but barely take the time to rest before setting off to Buckingham Palace to find Sam's sister. Ed, the warrior, leads forays into the no-go zone to rescue little Sam and the Kid, but he and his team encounter terror, danger, and vile bloodbaths. Across London, organized camps of kids have set up and attempted to impose order via rules or religion, oftentimes with dictators. Meanwhile, Shadowman tries to convince the kids he meets that the dreadful zombies have begun to congregate and build their forces. Death, religion, friendship, survival, power, politics, and fear are explored throughout this installment. The storylines run full speed ahead in this horrifying page-turner. The solid writing is, at times, brilliant, such as the Kid's description of music. The unanswered questions will prime readers for the next in the series. This popular, dark dystopian tale with its combination of adventure, horror and suspense will appeal to many at both public and school libraries. Reviewer: Ava Ehde

    I love this series

    Charlie Higson writes books in a way that makes you feel like you know these characters in real life. I love this series and the reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it wasn't longer. I am glad that it is going to be longer and can't wait for the next installment.

    What????????????????????

    Seriously!!!!! What do you mean book 5 is only available in the UK until spring 2014? Ugh. I read all 4 books in 6 days. Not a fan of book 2, but OMG, could not hardly put them down. And now there is a 4-6 month wait? This one is the best of the 4. Apparently there will be a total of 7. 5 will be out next year and 6 & 7 will each be a year after the previous one. You be the judge on this marketing strategy? Personally, not a fan.
