Our customer reviews

I had been waiting a long time to get this book. When I read a blog post about the story, I saw that it said that the last book is titled Light. I thought maybe this would mean that the barrier would be gone. But of course, not. I shall not add any spoilers but Fear as the title of this book is very apt. As usual, Michael Grant offered quite a bit of thought-provoking elements with leadership and its responsibilities, being able to do more than what is expected in times of desperate need, humiliation and its effects, loyalty, regret, the gaiaphage (always there), relationships growing and breaking, turning a new leaf, death, and above all of it, fear enveloping the children of The Fallout Alley Zone in a tight embrace. Made me really excited for Light!show more
by Kerene Ng
Fear is definitely the best Gone book yet. A tentative peace has emerged between Caine in Perdido Beach and Sam in Lake Tramonto. Tensions between freaks and normals has faded. Food is plentiful and starvation is no longer an issue. Drake hasn't been spotted in ages. Suddenly, however, the barrier begins to turn black. Food once more becomes an issue. Astrid is back, but so is Drake and this time he must be faced in the dark. Each installment in this series is better than the last, and Fear is no exception. Alternating between Pete's spirit, those trapped in the FAYZ and those trapped without, this book is by far the most fascinating and the most frightening. With the children facing their greatest threat yet, under observation of those outside, this book surely lives up to it's name. As with the previous books, I highly recommend you read this.show more
