Overview

It's been one year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

Despite the hunger, despite the lies, even despite the plague, the kids of Perdido Beach are determined to survive. Creeping into the tenuous new world they've built, though, is the worst incarnation yet of the enemy known as the Darkness: fear.

Within the FAYZ, life breaks down while the Darkness takes over—turning the dome-world of the FAYZ entirely black. A will to survive and a desire to take care of those they love endure in this ravaged band, even in the bleakest moments. But in darkness, the worst fears of all emerge, and the cruelest of intentions are carried out. After so many months, is all about to be lost in the FAYZ?

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Stacey Hayman
It has been four months of relative peace in the FAYZ. The killing flu is over, the supersized bugs are gone, and the remaining kids have divided themselves between living under Sam's council at Lake Tramonto or at Perdido Beach with King Caine. Regardless of location or leader, they have all found some degree of success in the everyday struggle for survival. When a dark stain begins to creep upward in multiple locations on the barrier wall, both camps realize this could be the final, fatal blow. If the stain closes out all the daylight, how will kids without a "Sammy sun" keep safe? More importantly, without sunshine, how will anything grow? As the fifth entry in a series of six books, it is a relief to have a few of the original puzzles solved, but the solutions are not absolutely complete, and new queries are ready to take their place. One of the most satisfying revelations is discovering what has been happening outside the dome, but it raises deeper questions about life before the FAYZ. Most threatening moments in the story come from elements beyond the kids' control, giving a bleaker, more desperate aspect to their actions. Adding a layer of tension is the underlying feeling that judgment day is drawing near, but who will be judge and who will be jury? Fans can count on more excellent storytelling, multidimensional characters who continue to develop in unexpected ways, and some mighty fine eye-popping moments. Just how will readers manage to wait for Light? Reviewer: Stacey Hayman

This book is bound for greatness. As soon as I finished PLAQUE, I couldn't wait for FEAR to come out! Michael Grant has such a gift to write such a series; he makes each book so that you can hardely wait to read the next. I really hope the time flies quickly because I don't think I can wait any longer!

Nobody will read these reviews if they've read the first 4--they'll just buy it!!!!! I cant believe that the final book, Lights, isnt coming out until 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too bad I wont be able to read it because the world will have already ended by then...:( hahaha just kidding, but anyways this book was the best of the rest of the series so far. Fear kept me up all night reading--something a good book should always do! The plot line is grabbing and with everyone scattered around the FAYZ I feel as helpless as a character in the book. This book makes me laugh, smile, grimace, and best of all--KEEP READING IT AND WANT MORE!!! Lana, Sannjit, Quinn, Astrid, Sam, Edilio, Brianna, Dekka, Orc, Jack, Diana, Caine, all are great, well thought out, detailed characters that make you see and understand their thinking in this great novel. I dont know why everyone is complaining about gore--and yes I admit it has it and creeps me out a bit--every great book needs some to keep you under its SPELL!!! OVERALL--MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS!!! :) THANKS MIKE GRANT FOR THIS!!

I love these books so much! Even though I'm only 13, I'm in love with this series! Michael Grant has done an amazing job creating this world that has compelled me for the past 5 months now. I have torn through these books, and celebrated every victory, cried for every death, and gasped at every plot twist. I'm excited for Light, but also sad that the series is coming to an end soon. :( Either way, I applaud Michael Grant for these truly amazing books. :) Read on all you FAYZ fans!

If you're a fan of action, romance, and science fiction, this series is for you. I started to read the Gone Series a year ago, and I have finished Fear this summer. (It didn't take me this long to read these books, it's just that they were always out at the library.) All of these books were really good, I and I would propbably reccommend them to a teen or an adult. (These are NOT books for kids!) This just my honest opinion, I'm not some crazed fan. Although, if there was a movie I might be. Wink wink, hint hint! MIchael Grant has a very good writing style, he compells the reader to finish the book, even if that means staying up until two or three in the morning, which I have done on countless occasions. Although it does get a little too much into the details in this book. I really like the monsters though, and Michael Grant does a great job explaining them so you can imagine what they look like. Anyways, if you're looking for a book series with monsters, tragidies, survival of the fittest, death, horror, disease, pain, confusion, starvation, (I know this sounds bad, but wait) friendships, love, unanswered questions, no adults, and finally in April 2013 - Light! You HAVE to read this series!

This series is right up there with a few of my other favorites.. Twilight and Hunger Games. I could not put the book down. It took me a little more than a day to read. Then I had to go and by the next and the next and so on. Now after a week or so I am more than ready for the 6th book.

Great book! Great characters and awesome world-building! This author uses a technique in his writing that I haven't seen used nearly as much or as effectively as Michael Grant. In his writing, he dashes quickly from place to place or character to character, tells a little about what's going on, and dashes on to the next place, leaving me thinking, &quot;Oh no, the story here is not done. I still want to know more about what's happening.&quot; But the story continues somewhere else and I have to try to keep up. Fast-paced action throughout the book. Anxious to dive into book 6, The Light, while simultaneously dreading it because it is the last book of the series.
