Overview

It's been seven months since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

It happens in one night. A girl who died now walks among the living; Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach; and amid the flames and smoke, Sam sees the figure of the boy he fears the most: Drake. But Drake is dead. Sam and Caine defeated him along with the Darkness—or so they thought.

As Perdido Beach burns, battles rage: Astrid against the Town Council; the Human Crew versus the mutants; and Sam against Drake, who is back from the dead and ready to finish where he and Sam left off. And all the while deadly rumors are raging like the fire itself, spread by the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ. Conditions are worse than ever and kids are desperate to get out. But are they desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?

Meet the Author

Michael Grant

Michael Grant is nothing like Mack MacAvoy. He travels all over the globe, he has a bit of a sarcastic streak, and he secretly suffers from belonephobia, a fear of needles. Seriously: Do not invite him to a sewing bee. Or a tattoo parlor. Okay, fine, maybe he’s a little like Mack MacAvoy.

Michael is the New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series and has written a total of 150 books (yes, you read that right: one hundred and fifty). He wrote most of his books with his wife, Katherine Applegate (K.A.), but the action-packed thrillers in the Gone series are all his. As is his newest series, the Magnificent Twelve, in which he delves into his inner (or, some might say, not so inner) child to create Mack, the unlikeliest of heroes.

When Michael isn’t busy writing, he likes to travel, stare blankly at the TV, waste hours clicking aimlessly around the internet, listen to rock music and sing along in a nasal voice, complain, and go out to eat.

    Lies, Lies, and More Lies

    I am a little bit sad. For the past two weeks, my life (well, my book life) has been revolved around reading this series. I re-read the thrill rides which are Gone and Hunger-- then it was time for the main event, the newest installment in the Gone series. Lies.

    I have to say it wasn't my favorite in the series. The flaws I had previously brushed aside in the first too became so blatant in this one that I couldn't ignore them. Don't get me wrong- it was still fantastic and I enjoyed it immensely, but it just wasn't my favorite.

    The first disappointment was the length. Hunger was a monster, but this one was like it's runty cousin. I was confused about that. Usually books get longer as the plot thickens, and I didn't see why that wasn't the case for this installment. I mean, it was certianly possible to make it longer. There were plenty of loose ends and point that could have been ellaborated on. Perhaps he wanted to leave that to the next book (Plague!!). Also, maybe the fact that the time period for this one was shorter (only a few days as opposed to a couple weeks) had something to do it.

    All the characters were great though. They become darker, more complex. Gone (yay for puns!) are the innocent children. Now they are intense. Every person to the smallest tot carries a weapon. Everyone is looking out for themselves, most concerned only about getting food. They aren't hesitant to kill, either, or do what they have to to stay alive. And yes, everyone lies. Big manipulative lies that are the reason for the title. Everyone is changed though, for the worse or for the better. We are also introduced to some new characters, which makes up for the loss of some of the old ones (kinda). I really think Michael Grant is accurate is portraying the desperation these kids would have.

    The writing was meh. I mean, it was never amazing to begin with, but in this book it got worse. I think he should get a new editor. Many typos and things that didn't add up to previous infromation given in the previous books. Sam said Caine and him where half brothers, when they are twins. Dekka said she loved Brianna from first sight, where in Hunger, she said she fell in love with Brianna when they were imprisoned. And where did Astrid's powers go? After the first book, they are never mentioned again.

    The plot was kinda jumpy. I really love how he tries to get everyone's point of view in, but it didn't pull together that nicely. It was very character driven, and there was less sci-fi (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). It was also more slow-paced than the previous two.

    Overall, I still really enjoyed it. This is one of my favorite series. It's thrilling and thought-provoking and dark. All the things I didn't quite like about Lies, I shall attribute it to being a middle book in the series. I am very excited for Plague and cannot believe the release date is an entire year away! Fortunately, Michael did some foreshadowing, which leaves me with great material for speculation.

    And does anyone mind telling who the kids on the back cover are supposed to be? I'm guessing Brittany and Drake, but I'm not sure.

    Could he do any better?

    Michael Grant, yet again, pulls through for his growing fan base. Gone has always been my favorite series and each time a new book comes out, the love grows. I've gotten almost all of my friends and most of my family reading the series!
    Lies is great in many ways and disappointing in only one. I'll break the bad news first: It is extremely short compared to Gone and Hunger. I was slightly disappointed when I looked at the binding. IT'S SO SHORT. Frustrating that I had to wait a year for this, but still fulfilling.
    The great things about Lies and Michael Grant's writing.
    It seems like the climax occurs in the middle of the text, so it keeps you wondering of what is to come.
    You know something is up from the start with all the mystery.
    The writing makes you feel like you're actually there. I get hungry when they do, when Drake whips them, I feel the sting. I also get annoyed with the characters.
    The FAYZ is a forever growing mystery.
    With Orsay's 'visions' found out in the end and then with the most surprising part of the book following it, you can't help but to wonder if they're real.
    The ferocity.
    If you haven't read this series yet, you best get on it.

    Hopefully good :)

    The first to books were amazing, in my opinion! They are similar to lord of the flies, but that probably doesn't sound very appealing. If you like books with survival, a little romance, and adventure, you will love these. The following books are some very similar to the gone series, but I personally like gone better. Still, you would give them a try.

    !!!

    Got this book on 5-04-10 and finished it on 5-05-10! One day! The best book in the series yet, in my opinion. There are very shocking twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.

    Great book

    I have read the first two books in two days and now im reading the third i love this series. The only thing im having a problem with is that in earlier books Astrid is labeled as a freak and has the power to gauge other peoples powers, but in this book it is said she is powerless. Did I miss something or is it just a mistake?

    AMAZING!!! Better than Hunger by FAR!

    Hunger was alright, but Lies was incredible! The plot in Hunger interested me. I got sucked into theplot in Lies. Not that Hunger wasn't good... I guess I'm just trying to say that these books don't get worse throughout the series, they get better!!

    Sienna Delarosa Part 11

    Hey! Quest applications are over! I'll still put everyone in as a charcter though. Thanks to all of the peoples who like my story! A capture the flag scene will be in part 12. All comments go to bannana result one. I appreciate the feedback.---- Loga and I walked t the mess hall. "I am so freakin hungry!" I moaned. Logan rolled his eyes and laughed. "You ate like, 6 hours ago." He reminded me. "Ya, 6 loooonnnggg hours ago. It has been forever since I last ate." I exaggerated. Logan shook his head. We sat down at our respective tables. I sat alone, since I was the only child of Zeus currntly at Camp Half-Blood. I scrapped a portion of my meal into the fire. Then I scarfed down my meal. Chiron stood up. "Since today is Friday, today is Capture the Flag day!" He announced. An immense amount of cheering was heard. "The Apollo cabin, with head counselor Logan Namrel will be in charge of the blue team. Head counselor Terry Jones of the Nike cabin will be leading the red team!" Everybody cheered. As I got up, Logan came up to me. "Wanna be on the blue team? We have an alliance with Athena, Posiedon, Hecate, Hephaestus, Ares and hopefully Zeus if you accept the offer." Logan said. "Yeah, I'll be on your team.' I agreed smiling. "Come on. I'll get you some armor and the game will start." He said. We got fitted in armor and hid the flag. Our team went to discuss the plan. One of Logan's half sisters, Nicole, was bouning up and down. She was really adorable with her black hair and green eyes. She looked to be about 11. "Nicole, you lead the Apollo campers into the trees. You guys will shoot th your bows." He instructed. Nicole nodded. "Alexa and Annabeth, take your cabin as offense alongwith the Hecate cabin. Wes, take the Hephaestus, and set up traps." He said. I studdied Alexa. She was 16. She had the most stunning violet eyes flecked with silver. At first glance, I thought se was an Aphrodite camper. "Percy and Sophie, you lead the Poseidon cabin as defense. Ares, you are defense too. Sienna you ae coming with me." Logan said. I nodded. We got ready. Chiron quickly explained the rules and we got in our positions. Chiron blew his whistle. Capture the Flag had begun.------Next part in Plague by Michael Grant! Post any comments in bannana result one! Thanks!---SDA
