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?

With each book, Grant's story becomes more and more incredible. This series is definitely not for the faint of heart, as Grant does not mince words when describing the horrific events that are unfolding in the FAYZ. While I was frustrated by the seeming lack of progression in the second book, Hunger...
3.5 stars. Like other reviews have said, this book was a little weaker than the previous two. I have always enjoyed Grant's use of multiple POV, and still did with this book, but this time it felt like it was stalling the plot a bit. I also feel like the ending could have been done a bit better. The...
This is the 3rd in the Gone series. The kids at Perdido Beach have formed a council, but it doesn’t seem to be working. The division between Normals and the kids with Powers is more prominent fueled by Zil and the Human Crew. Caine and the group at Coates have resorted to cannibalism. And we are...
