The Sacrifice book trailer - Charlie Higson

Charlie Higson is not even half way through his zombie trilogy, in fact he has only just reached his planned Book 2 and yet this is the published Book 4!  The Sacrifice has taken on a life of its own, far from being a linear journey from one book to the next it jumps backwards and forwards bringing its characters into new, dangerous situations as it does.

Charlie Higson is not the shy and retiring type, he relishes the horror and action in his books and is not afraid to say so.  However he is also a big fan of mythology and Tolkein, citing his favourite line in literature as being Tolkein's "the tale grew in the telling..."  This has been such an inspiration that Charlie Higson has taken it quite literally and grown his tale in the telling!  The cross fertilization of mythology has been another big inspiration and all this has led to The Sacrifice.  

The popularity of Zombie stories and of this series is immense and the power of the zombie os growing so watch out!  For the stars of this trailer Higson used the force of Twitter and a London secondary school where, as you will see, plentyy of Zombies and children under the age of 14 are to be found!

So if you have not yet had the pleasure of Charlie Higson's amazing trilogy of four books and counting here is a little taster of what to expect

Enjoy and remember to spread the word as well as finding yourself a copy of the book!  Oh and keep a close eye on any grown-ups...
