Plague: A Gone Novel by Michael Grant

Standard

They’ve survived the starvation and the hunger. They’ve survived the backstabbing and the lies. But now another challenge faces them: plague. For a short while, there has been peace in the FAYZ. But soon Dahra Baidoo’s hospital is filling up with sick, coughing children. This isn’t like any other cough. It’s something not even Lana “The Healer” can heal. This is where kids are hacking up their own insides. Yeah, gross. And deadly. And sadly, that’s not the only thing wrong. As Sam discovers on Hunter “the hunter”, there are also little devious bugs eating people from the inside out. Yeah, that’s gross too. With their reflective little shells, these bugs can’t be burnt by Sam’s glowing green fire. They can only be crushed. With really big rocks. While all of this is happening, Caine and Diana are on an island that once belonged to two movie stars eating and doing whatever they want.

The Darkness, or the Gaiaphage, is back too, if it was ever truly destroyed. And it’s reaching out for one thing, its “Nemesis” as it calls it. The Gaiaphage is using its faithful (and psycho) servant,  the Drake/Brittney creature to get exactly what it wants. Nemesis is Little Pete: Astrid’s five-year-old autistic brother so powerful that he started the FAYZ without even meaning to. Nemesis could be the very thing that the Gaiaphage needs to be reborn into the creature that can overpower everything and take over the world! Yeah, very supervillan-ey. And because Gaia means Earth, and Phage means eater, Gaiaphage must mean EARTH EATER and that can’t be good.

Although it was really gross, I loved this book. With each book, there is more gross stuff and more bad stuff, like love….and a little bit of cursing, but not really anything too bad. Sometimes during this book, I wanted to throw up just because it was so descriptive. But that’s what you get when you read a horror book, I guess. MILD SPOILERS/HINTS: Someone gets pregnant! Sam gets drunk in the beginning!

If you haven’t read any of the Gone books, I highly recommend them. Also, check out my reviews of the other books before this one! They are Gone, Hunger, and Lies. 

Happy Reading!

Lies: A Gone Novel by Michael Grant

Standard

Lies by Michael Grant book #3 in the Gone series. It’s been several months since all of the adults have disappeared and the bubble around Perdido Beach, California known as “the FAYZ” has appeared. All in one night, Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach. A girl who was once dead is rumoured to have been seen walking along the streets. Drake, the horrible psycho “Whip Hand” is back from the dead not to kill, but torture the people he despises most with his tentacle-ish whip-hand. And among the list of people he despises is Sam, the person who fears him most. And this time, Drake cannot be killed. Immortal. Orsay, the Prophetess claims that there is a way to get out of the FAYZ besides the big poof: Death. As Sam and Astrid grow farther and farther apart and in this book you will not be able to stand Astrid! I have to admit, she gets really annoying. Together, the team of Sam, Brianna “The Breeze”, Dekka, and Edilio try to stop most of the big problems in the FAYZ! Oh, and here’s a sneak peek: Cannibalism! Yeah, gross and very desperate! But I won’t tell you who!

This whole book series is awesome. The first two books are Gone and Hunger. As far as I recall, there isn’t really any serious bad stuff in this book aside from a few curse words. The Gone series is definetely for some Stephen King fans and lovers of horror books! The story is awesome and the characters totally make the story what it is.    

Happy Reading!
