The Sacrifice (The Enemy #4) by Charlie Higson

The sickness destroyed everyone over the age of fourteen. All across London diseased adults are waiting, hungry predators with rotten flesh and ravaged minds.

Small Sam and his unlikely ally, The Kid, have survived. They’re safe with Ed and his friends at the Tower of London, but Sam is desperate to find his sister.

Their search for Ella means Sam and The Kid must cross the forbidden zone. And what awaits them there is more terrifying than any of the horror they’ve suffered so far .

Charlie Higson’s The Sacrifice holds all the scares, suspense, and gore of this bloody slaughter-like series, but this story also shows readers that surviving may not be enough. What we have to sacrifice day to day to survive in life plays a big part of this journey and a huge reason why I love Mr. Higson so much. Review by Laura Good Reads

The Fury by Alexander Gordon Smith

 

 

 

The Fury has been described as chilling and utterly unputdownable!

 

Imagine if one day, without warning, the entire human race turns against you.

Every single person you meet becomes a bloodthirsty, mindless savage, hell bent on killing you – and only you

Friends, family, even your mum and dad, will turn on you. They will murder you.

And when they have, they will go back to their lives as if nothing has happened

The world has the Fury

It will not rest until you are dead

Cal, Brick and Daisy are three ordinary teenagers whose lives suddenly take a terrifying turn for the worse. They begin to trigger a reaction in everybody they meet, one that makes friends and strangers alike turn rabid whenever they are close. One that makes people want to tear them to pieces.

Cal and the other victims of the Fury – the ones that survive – manage to locate each other. But just when they think they have found a safe haven, a place to hide from the world, things get worse.

Some of them begin to change…

They must fight to uncover the truth about the Fury before it is too late. But it is a truth that will destroy everything they know about life and death
