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—or so they thought.

Perdido Beach burns and 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. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ, but are the kids of Perdido Beach desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?

Michael Grant, author ofMessenger of Fear, the Gone series, and the Magnificent Twelve series, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I'm not sure why, but this is my least favourite book in the series. It was still very good, I just didn't like the plot line as much. The characters have also changed a lot since the first book, adding to the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Several Great Plot Twists Another great book in the series, this one just as good as Gone. I don't want to spoil the fun, but there are some wonderful new developments in this story that make you stop and think, and even say "holy cow" out loud. The character development continues to astound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lies: A Gone Novel The story continues with ever more riveting twists, excitements and horrors. If you read and enjoy the first book of this story, you'll not only become just as engrossed in this third offering, you'll want the fourth as soon as you've finished this one!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, But not the best one in the series. I found Lies was good but I found it wasn't the best one of the series. It seemed like it was an opening to something bigger. The plot was slow and it didn't seem as thrilling or surprising as the other books. The characters were amazing though. They were well described like always and I felt like I knew them in real life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Wow! Another greatly delivered book by Michael Grant. The 3rd installment of the GONE series is not to be missed. Just when Sam and his town have conquered hunger, Orsay is claimed to be able to see past the FAYZ wall. Lies? Unsure. Drake is rumoured to be back from the dead. Lies? Unsure. Brittney seem to be a tough little cookie who is not yet ready to give up her fight with Death yet. She is aslo rumoured to have returned. As if lies and rumours were not enough, Zil is teaming up with Caine for the unltimate desctuction of Perdido Beach. Can Sam handle all this? Will Astrid let him? This fabulously fabricated book kept me guessing and wondering throughout the entire night. It's darker than the previous two books but that's exactly what was needed to bring this series to an even higher level. Decisions will be made. Paths will cross. A great book that revealed a secrect that many of us readers have been wondering since GONE. What is outside the FAYZ wall? This book involved a lot of mental actions unlike the first 2 books in the seiries. But the struggles that these characters face are still very close to the heart. A great book many of us can relate to. I wish I could give this book 11 out of 5! I could not put it down. Not even if my house was burning down.

Editorial Reviews

"The Gone books have been one of the most dependable YA series in recent history. Readers dying for this series ender will be rewarded by Grant's characteristic nonstop action. He keeps readers where he's always had them-on the edge of their seats-until the very end." - ALA Booklist

"As a series finale, this book is more than satisfying-it is epic." - Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)
