This is the fourth book in the mind-blowing Gone series. So far with Gone, Hunger, and Lies it's been a blood-pumping, white-knuckle ride of epic proportions. It's a world without adults and normal life has crashed and burned. When you hit 15 everything changes. It's a sci-fi thriller first and foremost but any reader who wants an intense all action thriller that races along and leaves you wanting more should get into the series immediately. Brilliantly plotted with characters you'll both love and hate. Lord of the Flies for the 'Heroes' generation is not far off the beat. To check out the whole series go to our Michael Grant page.
Warning: Contains scenes of cruelty and some violence.
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.
