The mind-blowing conclusion to the Monster trilogy and the final installment in the Gone series from science fiction and fantasy master Michael Grant is perfect for superhero and Stephen King fans alike.
After the fall of Perdido Beach dome, a new set of humans developed mutant powers from the rock infected with alien virus. They are the Rockborn Gang: Dekka, Shade, Cruz, Malik, Armo, and Francis. With their superpowers, they have defended the earth from other rockborn who used their powers for evil, like Dillon Poe.
When another rock carrying the virus strikes New York, a new foe, Bob Markovic, rises with a horrifying and nearly unstoppable ability. Markovic’s unending ambition and lack of a moral compass made him unbearable before the virus. And that was before he was a swarm of plague-ridden insects, with the power and means to take over the city—and maybe the world.
As the Rockborn Gang try to defeat their latest villain, they will find themselves on morally gray grounds and have to make tough decisions if they want to save the world.
In this pulse-pounding finale to the saga more than ten years in the making, Michael Grant delivers an unforgettable conclusion while asking: What does it take to be a hero?
Praise for Monster:
“Ratchets up the gore and action, and features a diverse cast of characters. An evocative, intricately plotted companion series.” –ALA Booklist

Would definitely recommend!
I started reading the Gone series in 8th Grade, when I started reading them I wasn’t sure what exactly to think about it. When I started reading this series the first six were already out and the seventh one was on the way. I fell I love with the series from the first book and read each book. I love and own every book and would recommend it to anyone wanting a good series to read.
I’ve read all nine books and this is the first to honestly disappoint me. The stakes in this sequel trilogy are yes world wide but not as high for our main characters, or they don’t feel like it. It’s not the ending that I really feel like the author come up with driving home and said yea I’ll do that, but the first half is downright slow and boring. The gone series has never been slow and boring. The satisfying character returns almost saved it but Mr. Grant just had to go all Game of Thrones on us.
