Author information

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.

Customer reviews

By Nurture Waratah 16 Sep 2013 4

The threat of starvation is receding in Perdido Beach, and the horror that is Drake has been imprisoned, but now a new threat is emerging. A devastating disease is spreading through the FAYZ - a terrifying illness that causes sufferers to cough up their lungs. At the same time a new infestation is growing - one that eats its victims from the inside out, and one that even Sam cannot kill.

Plague is the fourth book in the popular Gone series and it is the best yet. Terrifying, horrifying, disturbing, no reader will rest before the final page is turned - and eve then, they will be left wanting more. If you have yet to read this series, I recommend that you do so. You will not regret it.
