Part of the The Gone Series Series

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on Light

Gripping, scary and unputdownable from the first page of the first book in this brilliantly plotted series right through to the last word in this the sixth and final heart-stopping instalment in the bestselling GONE series that really put dystopia back on the map in the 21st century. It is an exceptional page-turner. Escapism just doesn't get better than this.  At the start of the series it was seen as The Lord of the Flies for the Heroes generation and that very much still holds true now we've come to the end of a series that will in time become a classic.

 

The complete list of books in this epic series is....

 

1 Gone 2 Hunger 3 Lies 4 Plague 5 Fear 6 Light

 

reader reviews

A small number of teenagers were lucky enough to be invited to review the first in the series - Gone. Here's a taster....'This underrated, terrifyingly good book is a brilliant what-if book. We have discovered a better series than The Hunger Games. Teen reading simply doesn’t get better than this.'.... Click here to read what they thought.
