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. We have discovered a better series than The Hunger Games. Teen reading simply doesn’t get better than this.'.... Click here to read more reviews.

Synopsis

Plague by Michael Grant

The FAYZ goes from bad to worse...The Darkness has been foiled once again and the resurrected Drake has been contained. But the streets of Perdido Beach are far from safe, with a growing army of mutants fighting against the humans for power in the town. In a small room of a house near the edge of town Little Pete lies ill on a bed. In his fevered dreams he continues his battle with the hidden evil that seeks to use his power to bring about anarchy and destruction.

Reviews

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

'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'
- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)

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.
