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

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.

About the Book

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?

About the Author

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 few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.

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)

Appropriate for ages: 13 - 17
