The third book in Michael Grant's New York Times bestselling Gone series, Lies is another heart-in-your-throat page-turner, both chilling and thought-provoking.
It's been seven months since all the adults disappeared. Gone.
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 Drake is dead. 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, who is back from the dead and ready to finish where he and Sam left off. And all the while deadly rumors are raging like the fire itself, spread by the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ. Conditions are worse than ever and kids are desperate to get out. But are they desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?
“Disturbing, brilliantly plotted, and boasting a balanced mix of action and scheming.” —ALA Booklist

I read this book and this series in matter of days! It has an exceptional story line and I would seriously consider it to anyone who is wanting a different read!
Really good book
Excellent story, not the best in the series, but an amazing story with a constantly switching subject. A lot more strange than the previous two, but this leaves a lot of gaps to be filled in the next books in the series. A great read overall.
I love this book but it is definitely the worst one in the series. I mean Lies is a good book but compared to the rest of the books (Especially Fear and Light) it is not as good. I wouldn't recommend this book cos it would make no sense without having read gone and hunger first. I would DEFINITELY recommend the series though.
BTW: if you have read Gone and Hunger you HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!
