The fifth book in the bestselling Gone series by Michael Grant continues the page-turning saga of Sam, Astrid, and Drake in their terrifying post-apocalyptic world.
It's been one year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.
Despite the hunger, despite the lies, even despite the plague, the kids of Perdido Beach are determined to survive. Creeping into the tenuous new world they've built, though, is the worst incarnation yet of the enemy known as the Darkness: fear.
Within the FAYZ, life breaks down while the Darkness takes over—turning the dome-world of the FAYZ entirely black. A will to survive and a desire to take care of those they love endure in this ravaged band, even in the bleakest moments. But in darkness, the worst fears of all emerge, and the cruelest of intentions are carried out. After so many months, is all about to be lost in the FAYZ?
“Fans can count on more excellent storytelling, multidimensional characters who continue to develop in unexpected ways, and some mighty find eye-popping moments.” —VOYA (starred review)

I love the gone series!!
I love this series and this book certainly didn't disappoint when i came to reading this one!!! I think it would be amazing if they made these books into films they could get as big as harry potter or the hunger games!!! x
Good book, but dragged on.
I was really anticipating this book. I read the others,and I thought that this one was a must read. But in fact, I think these books have been decreasing in class ever since the first one, "Gone". This was a good read, certainly better than Plague, which I thought was a tad disappointing. I thought it had a clever plot, but I thought it dragged on a lot. It took too long to get to the climax. I also thought that Michael Grant perhaps overcomplicated the book; there was an awful lot to take in, albeit that's been the case in most of the "Gone" books. I think Michael Grant could also do with a bit of a change in the storyline. The bad guys have been the same people since day one, so there aren't a huge amount of surprises in "Fear". I thought also that in the parts of the book that dragged on, Grant filled those spaces with some content that just isn't that interesting, and you spend those moments thinking "For God's sake, when is it going to get to the good part?", which might cause a lack of interest at those points which might lead to the failure to notice an important detail in the plot.
So overall, a very good book, the best "Gone" novel since "Hunger"; I thoroughly enjoyed it, but be prepared for a lot to take in when reading this; it's no Mr Men book.
Truly an amazing book well worth the price. My number one book series! Keep up the great work MG
