The second book in Michael Grant's New York Times bestselling Gone series, Hunger is a thrilling, action-packed story that is impossible to put down. It's been three months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. Food ran out weeks ago and starvation is imminent. Meanwhile, the normal teens have grown resentful of the kids with powers. And when an unthinkable tragedy occurs, chaos descends upon the town. There is no longer right and wrong. Each kid is out for himself and even the good ones turn murderous. But a larger problem looms. The Darkness, a sinister creature that has lived buried deep in the hills, begins calling to some of the teens in the FAYZ. Calling to them, guiding them, manipulating them.
The Darkness has awakened. And it is hungry.
“Readers will be unable to avoid involuntarily gasping, shuddering, or flinching while reading this suspense-filled story.” —Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review)
Read the entire series:
In the sequel to 2008's Gone, things have only gotten worse for the kids trapped in the small area around Perdido Beach, Calif. After three months, they still have no contact with the outside world, more dangerous mutant animals are cropping up and food supplies are becoming perilously scarce. Even as Caine starts to recover from the confrontation with the town leader (and half-brother) Sam, the evil gaiaphage exerts its influence, manipulating Caine and others in a plan to gain more power. The ongoing divide between kids who have developed powers and ones who haven't also threatens to lead to violence. Grant throws everything at the children, from gory deaths every bit as nasty as in mainstream horror to sexual tension, eating disorders and drug use. The large cast of characters from a variety of racial and sexual backgrounds might be hard for some to keep track of, but readers looking for intense, nearly nonstop action and emotional drama will find lots to enjoy, even as the climactic ending sets up another sequel. Ages 12 up.
Great story line
I haven’t fully read the second book but I sure can say I love this series so much. I like to read survival books and this one is just perfect. I was struggling to find a good book and came across this in a library and read the first book and started the second and I am loving every bit!
This is seriously the best series I've ever read in my life. You know how in the beginning of books it's really boring and it usually only gets good until the middle? Well I loved it from the start and Even before I started reading it. I am the number one fan of Michael Grant! Michael Grant, if you are reading this, keep on writing books! Continue the series! I want to keep on reading this for ever! Write a book about after the Fayz!
