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.

Synopsis

Light by Michael Grant

All eyes are on Perdido Beach. The barrier wall is now as clear as glass and life in the FAYZ is visible for the entire outside world to see.

Life inside the dome remains a constant battle and the Darkness, away from watchful eyes, grows and grows...The society that Sam and Astrid has struggled so hard to build is about to be shattered for good. It's the end of the FAYZ. But who will survive to see the light of day?

'Exciting, high-tension story told in a driving torrential narrative that never lets up. This is great fiction' STEPHEN KING

'A chilling portrayal of a world with no rules' READING ZONE

'Levels of nastiness almost worthy of Dante' GUARDIAN

'A potent mix of action and thoughtfulness - centred around good and evil, courage and cowardice - renders this a tour-de-force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed and utterly breathless' BOOKLIST

Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France.

He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children, (Jake and Julia), and far too many pets.
