The End: A Review (The Enemy #7)

Description (Goodreads):

The end is coming.

The sickness struck everyone sixteen and older. First it twisted their minds; next it ravaged their bodies. Now the sickos—crazed and hungry for young flesh—are gathered in the center of London, lying in wait.

It’s time for all of the survivors—kids spread out across the city—to unite. They must come up with a plan of attack to end the grown-ups’ reign of terror before it is too late.

One thing is certain: surprises abound in the bloody conclusion to Charlie Higson’s Enemy saga.

My Review:

Finally! The end has come to this amazing series!

I have been waiting for this book for over a year! This was a fantastic ending.

There was so much more intrigue and wondering who was going to get along and who would fight the grown-ups. There are so many kids I'm routing for and so many who actually made me hate them. I didn't want anyone to die, but I wasn't sad when some of them did...

Everyone I wanted to live, did live though. I was so happy about that, because I had so many favorite die!

BUT, that's what you get when you read an apocalyptic book.

What I really appreciated is that this book didn't just, end end. Like, everything wasn't suddenly perfect and fine. Rather, we were given clues to how the kids would put the world back together and were left to imagine the rest. An ending like this, is my personal favorite. There's no reason to tie everything in a bow (unless it's a love story, then it dang sure better be in that perfectly tied bow) in a book like this.

The armies of children have come to fight the army of grown-ups. The kids have tricks up their sleeves, but so do the grown-ups! That's what was so terrifying about this series. The zombie grown ups could think. And they were so clever.

Once again, I rather loved this series. If you like zombie books, this is one you need to read.

5 out of 5!


  1. I've never heard of this series but I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

  2. I can't wait to read it, but I have to read Fabelhaven first because I have to review Brandon Mull's new series! Great review daughter!
