It's Lord of the Flies for the Heroes generation The third instalment of Michael Grant's epic Gone series. A blood-pumping, white-knuckle sci-fi thriller of epic proportions 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 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. And the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza, are preaching that death will set them all free. As life in the FAYZ becomes more desperate, no one knows who they can trust. LIES is yet another tour-de-force from global sensation, Michael Grant. If there's one sci-fi/fantasy book for teens you read this year, make it Gone. "I love these books" - Stephen King

Michael Grant has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states of the USA, 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 whole year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in Southern California, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, their two children, and far too many pets.

Once again, Michael Grant has outdone himself. In this, the third book of the Gone series, fear truly takes hold. Hunger is ever present, tensions between freaks and normals are escalating, and most terrifying of all, are the reported sightings of Drake.
It seems that each book in this series is better than the last, and you will not be disappointed with this one.
