Review by Hugh, a 15 yr old fan:

Lies is the latest installment to the Gone series, in which relationships are tested and new measures are resorted to in order to stay alive. The balance of power has become more important than ever as the characters struggle with each other, and fear drives them to do things that they would never normally do: but their lives are far from normal. The plot is gripping and although it is a long book, I found myself reading for hours at a time. It is also more complex than the first two, as the line between right and wrong becomes ever more hazy, but this makes it more intriguing, and the reader has to think more. There are unpredictable twists in the plot, which increase the drama and the thrill of the story. It is a relentless high tempo plot with new events and situations introducing interesting elements to the story.

Many questions are left unanswered, and it ends with a brilliant twist which leaves the reader eagerly anticipating the next in the series, Plague.

Synopsis

Lies by Michael Grant

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 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. And the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza, are preaching that death will set them all free. As life in the FAYZ becomes more desperate, no one knows who they can trust.

Reviews

Gone: '... exciting, high-tension story told in a driving, torrential narrative that never lets up. This is great fiction. I love this book.
Stephen King, bestselling author

'A tour-de-force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless
Booklist

'If Stephen King had written Lord of the Flies, it might have been a little like this

About the Author

Michael Grant

Michael Grant is the co-creator and coauthor of the series of books and publishing phenomenon Animorphs and the Everworld series. Michael 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, including Antarctica. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children, (Jake and Julia), and far too many pets.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
