More About the Author

Michael Grant was born in Los Angeles but that's not important because he was soon out of there. His father was a military man, frequently transferred, so Michael was the "new kid" in school every year but one. He left school early and embraced the rootless lifestyle as his own. He's lived in more flats and houses than he can recall, all across the US and in France and Italy as well. He's back in southern California as of this writing but with no plans to stay put.

Michael met his wife, Katherine (K.A.) Applegate, 30 years ago, in Austin, Texas. He saw her through her apartment window and immediately knocked on her door. They've been together since that first meeting.

Michael Grant did not set out to be a writer. He's worked as a stock clerk, a house painter, an apartment manager, busboy, waiter, restaurant manager, janitor, editorial cartoonist, political media consultant, documentary producer, and no doubt some other jobs he's managed to forget. After ten years working odd jobs together, Katherine informed Michael that it was time for them both to grow up, get careers, possibly have children. Once he was revived, Michael agreed.

Katherine and Michael began writing in 1989, often as a team, and wrote 150 books, including the ANIMORPHS series.
They have two disobedient children, Jake, 11, and Julia, 9, an overweight Labrador Retriever named Goofy, a cat named Lightning and a pug named Pugs who is Michael's personal nemesis.

The children and young adults inside the dome are finding some kind of stability at last. And then, slowly, the dome begins to turn black. Without light, there's no food, no safety, no way of knowing what's waiting in the dark.
And what's waiting is even more unsettling for the 'good' guys than ever. Penny is a fabulously twisted creation - doing damage that even Lana can't fix. Drake/Brittany is as terrifying as s/he ever was, and, of course, there's the thing in the mine and this time it wants company.
This book feels like it's building to a great climax in Book 6. It refers to the characters as chess pieces at one point, and it does feel as if everyone is being moved into position for the Endgame. I, for one, can't wait to see how that game plays out in the final enstallment.

***No spoilers for FEAR or the previous books***

Michael Grant knows how to write a story full of action, mystery, humour, disturbing/gory-stuff and occasional romance with a great variety of characters and plot twists added in to shake things up.

The idea behind this novel was promising and Michael exceeded my expectations once again by writing a really thrilling read. The plot twists were really well done. A lot of it I wasn't expecting, and like the previous four books, I just couldn't tear through this book enough. Even though the book is a big one, I felt that apart from the beginning it was really fast-paced and enjoyable.

It was great to meet up with my favourite characters once more. All of the GONE novels manage a balance between characters and action, but with each GONE novel different characters play different roles in the book. Personally, some of my favourite characters, Lana, Dekka and Diana have solid roles in this book which was nice. Lana is as determinedly strong as ever (and hey, she even smiles once or twice, which is great because she DESERVES some sort of happiness after the hell she's been through in the previous 5 books, no?) and Dekka, while she plays a smaller part in FEAR than I would have liked, tries to recover from the events of PLAGUE, in which she didn't leave fully unscathed. At all. Diana, on the other hand, was charming to me for the first half of the novel, and it looked like she would continue to be. But then the last fifty or so pages happened and I remembered that all of the main characters of the GONE novels have shades of grey, and are completely human in their unpredictability despite the strange situation (being trapped in this dome) they have found themselves in.

Every so often you come across a book which just makes your fingertips tingle with joy every time you turn a page. For me, the Gone series has offered five such books so far.

From the very first chapter in the series, these books have had me hooked. The key conflict of the series is situational, as is the case with most great books. Grant had a great "What if..?" which set the story on its way: What if a bunch of kids with emerging superpowers were trapped in a bubble with no adults and a monster out to destroy them?

The situation has changed and mutated (pun intended) as the books have progressed. What if the food started to run out? What if everyone started getting sick? What if kids got their hands on the booze and drugs lying around? And with every mutation, the books have become more and more brilliant!

The situation is awesome enough, but when you add Grant's ability to create flawed protagonists and truly villainous bad guys, the result is a series which is incredibly gripping. Fear has seen my favourite antagonist so far: the cruel and insane Penny. Penny's "power" is her ability to create illusions so vivid and sensory that they are impossible to distinguish from reality. This makes her useful to Caine, the self-proclaimed King of the Perdido Beach kids.

I loved hating Penny. My favourite illusion of the book saw her treating a boy to some imaginary Red Vines which were actually the veins of his arms. They tasted so good... he just kept digging into his flesh for more! So. Very. Dark.

She's part of the "fear" suggested by the book's title. The other is that the sphere which has encased the town is slowly turning black and will soon block out all light. Without the sun there will be no more food production.

This book was amazing, Grant some how managed to keep me at the edge of my seat the whole way through the book. With new twists and turns its. Absolutely brilliant I promise you. It worth reading a gazillion times over. Most of all and as a huge Astrid hater, I must say I dint live her but I admittedly don't bate her as much. The character development was brilliant and well the ending unwashed orgasmic. I'd read it a gazillion times over

Though I know gazillion isn't a real word shows how freaking awesome it truly is.
