Product description

The sickness struck everyone sixteen and over. Mothers and fathers, older brothers, sisters, and best friends. No one escaped its touch. And now children across London are being hunted by ferocious grown-ups who are hungry, bloodthirsty, and not giving up. DogNut and the rest of his crew, in search of the friends they lost during the fire, set off on a deadly mission from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace and beyond, as the sickos lie in wait. But who are their friends and who is the enemy in this changed world?

Review quote

No YA zombie book out there approaches the ick factor reached by Higson's The Enemy (2010), The Dead (2011), and this gooey third volume. The plague of "sickos" has dwindled enough that Higson's primary focus is now the power grabs occurring between the surviving tribes of teens holed up in the Tower of London, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, and the Natural History Museum. Higson's savviest move is making the goofy 15-year-old DogNut our hero: he is the stark opposite of most brilliant, brooding protagonists. And for those who just want to see a zom "poking his tongue into the eye socket of a severed head," well, there's that, too. - Daniel Kraus Booklist"
