THE DEAD begins one year "before" the action in THE ENEMY, just after the Disaster. A terrible disease has struck everyone sixteen and over, leaving them either dead or a decomposing, flesh-eating creature. The action starts in a boarding school just outside London, where all the teachers have turned into sickos. A few kids survive and travel by bus into the city. The bus driver, an adult named Greg, seems to be unaffected by the disease. Then he begins to show the dreaded signs: outer blisters and inner madness. The kids escape Greg and end up at the Imperial War Museum. A huge fire in South London drives them all to the Thames, and eventually over the river to the Tower of London. It is there they will meet up with the kids in THE ENEMY in Book 3, THE FEAR.

After a few chapters however I was absolutely hooked to this book and couldn't put it down. I loved the characters in...
The blurb for this book is terrible. I know. This happens, and then this happens, oh and then they end up here and this happens. It's like the blurb writer didn't even try. For that reason you might be thinking that this book is not worth reading. I know I do when I read crappy summaries. Well, I ca...
I have had The Dead on my TBR for over a year. I actually started it, found it a bit too intense at the time, and set it aside for another day. October always puts me in the mood for scary stuff, so I pulled the book out again and wondered why I ever put it down in the first place. This is a fast...
I really enjoyed this book. Definitely scary and sometimes completely disgusting. Those who have read the book...that scene with the "snowman" in the cab of the truck?? GAG. The plot was faced paced and there was always something crazy happening. The 400+ pages go by very quickly. Even with all that...
