Waiting on Wednesday: The Fear - Charlie Higson


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine to "spotlight upcoming releases". Right now, one of the book's I'm most looking forward to is:
The Fear - Charlie Higson
Publisher: Penguin Books (Australia)
Australian Publication Date: September 15th, 2011

HE DOESN'T KNOW IT BUT DOGNUT IS ABOUT TO SET OFF A CHAIN OF EVENTS THAT WILL AFFECT EVERY KID IN THE CITY.

The sickness struck everyone over the age of fourteen.
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... They're hungry. They're bloodthirsty. And they aren't giving up.

DogNut and the rest of his crew want to find their lost friends, 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 are the enemy in this changed world?

I'm a huge fan of Charlie Higson's work and loved both The Enemy and The Dead (which will be reviewed later this week). These stories are action-packed, exciting, clever and quite funny (which I can assure you, for a story set in apocalyptic London as a virus infects everyone over the age of fourteen, is tough to do!), so I highly recommend you check them out before devouring The Fear.

What upcoming releases are you eagerly anticipating?

URRR! I cannot wait for this book either, LOVE this series. It's funny, I've never seen a horror series unite so many people in agreeing that it's brilliant - and people who would never normally touch horror (crazy types). Bring on The Fear!
