Description

Welcome back to the FAYZ! This is Book 4 in the series that Stephen King calls a `driving, torrential narrative'. Disease is spreading through the streets of Perdido Beach: a devastating, hacking cough that makes the sufferers choke their guts up - literally. Across town, Little Pete lies unconscious, struck down by the mysterious illness. With the most powerful mutant in the FAYZ out of action, the future of the world hangs in the balance... The GONE series is Lord of the Flies for the 21st century. In turns breathtaking, harrowing, and utterly terrifying. Its complex characters and moral dilemmas will delight fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner. This is dystopian fiction at its best. Have you got all 6 titles in the New York Times bestselling saga: Gone, Hunger, Lies, Plague, Fear, and Light? `I am now free to leave the FAYZ, but my time there was well spent' Stephen King If you love GONE, be sure not to miss Michael's new series Front Lines - it's WWII but not as you know it! The first book is Front Lines, followed by Silver Stars. Michael Grant also has a World Book Day book, Dead of Night, which is set in the Front Lines universe and written exclusively for World Book Day 2017. Michael Grant has lived an exciting, fast-paced life. He moved in with his wife Katherine Applegate after only 24 hours. He has co-authored over 160 books but promises that everything he writes is like nothing you've ever read before! If the Gone series has left you hungry for more from the dark genius of YA fiction, look out for the BZRK trilogy: BZRK, BZRK Reloaded, BZRK Apocalypse and the terrifying Messenger of Fear and its sequel The Tattooed Heart. Michael is a World Book Day author for 2017.show more

About Michael Grant

Michael Grant is the evil genius of YA Fiction. Among his biggest fans is Stephen King who called the GONE series `A driving, torrential narrative'. Michael's life has been similarly driving and torrential. He's lived in almost 50 different homes in 14 US states, and moved in with his wife, Katherine Applegate, after knowing her less than 24 hours. Michael and Katherine were running their own cleaning business when they were working on their first book. Since trading in his marigolds, Michael has now written around 150 books (with Katherine, as himself, under pseudonyms and as a ghostwriter). He now lives in the San Francisco Bay area taking his inspiration from his charming view of Alcatraz. From across those dark waters have emerged his dystopian fantasy series, GONE, his thrilling futuristic trilogy BZRK, and the menacing Messenger of Fear. Now he is reinventing history with Front Lines. The GONE series has sold over 800, 000 copies in the UK meaning that Michael has terrified a lot of people. Something he particularly likes to do.
