Based in London, this epic supernatural novel blends the best of the living as they struggle for survival as well as the living dead who want to kill everyone in their wake. The Enemy is the first book in this series of novels that revolves around teens who apparently have survived a very devastating disease. The teens converge in one place and try to live it out there but they are soon running short of supplies. The disease did a good job of wiping out everyone above the age of 16 and the surviving ones have this terrible affliction that is just nasty. So, one day a stranger comes by where they are staying and he offers to take them to Buckingham Palace where there is plenty of everything that they actually need.
So, they go out with the aim of getting to Buckingham Palace. This group of teenagers had been staying at supermarket that was known as Waitrose, which was apparently running short of supplies. They realize that there is a far much greater threat that is within the palace walls than even the one which is outside and so they must proceed with caution.
