The Fallen by Charlie Higson

First the sickness rotted the adults' minds. Then their bodies. Now they stalk the streets, hunting human flesh. The Holloway crew are survivors. They've fought their way across London and made it to the Natural History Museum alive - just. But the fight will never end while the Enemy lives, unless there's another way...The kids at the museum are looking for a cure. All they need are medical supplies. To get them means a journey down unknown roads. Roads where not only crazed, hungry sickos hide in the shadows. Suddenly it's not so clear who - or what - they're fighting. The fourth terrifying part of Charlie Higson's bestselling Enemy series. The Enemy is among us...


Lord of the Flies with zombies ... tons of nail-biting action -- Rick Riordan, creator of the Percy Jackson series

Brutal, blood-soaked, full of zombies ... it's ace FHM
