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.

Product Description

About the Author

Michael Grant 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 Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, their two children, and far too many pets. In addition to his best-selling Gone series, described by Stephen King as “high-tension stories told in a driving, torrential narrative”, Michael has also written books such as the BZRK, Magnificent 12 and Animorphs series as well as the standalone book for young adults Eve and Adam.

Kids under the age of fifteen trapped in a 10 mile radius dome in modern-day California. With mutant powers and isolation from civilization as we know it comes Hunger, Lies, Plague, Fear and finally Light.
What does every teen series need in it's final installment? There needs to be action and romance, a climax that makes all the reading worth while, the opportunity of redemption, adored characters meeting their ends, sorrow and hope. Michael Grant's final novel to the Gone series has it all. He also achieves what few writers do - a sufficiently detailed aftermath which allows you to feel closure.
You'll feel awestricken yet satisfied with this finale.
It's just a FAYZ.

*WARNING: This review contains spoilers of all the books in the Gone series, including Light.

Bravo!

Light is the 6th and final book in the best selling Gone series by Michael Grant. Filled with action, suspense and shocking revelations, Light, and the rest of the Gone series, represent dystopian thrillers at their best.

All eyes are on Perdido Beach. The barrier wall is now as clear as glass and life in the FAYZ is visible for the entire outside world to see. Life inside the dome remains a constant battle and the darkness, away from watchful eyes, grows and grows...

The society that Sam and Astrid have struggled so hard to build is about to be shattered for good. Who will survive to see the light of day?

I received the first three books in the Gone series as a Christmas present. I wasn't much into reading at that time, but I have to say, the UK/Ireland cover looked brilliant! So I gave them a go. Well, ever since then I've become a book addict. And I want to say this, thank you Michael for bringing the love of reading into my life. You have no idea how much I appreciate it!

So, after I finished Gone, Hunger, and Lies I rushed to the book store to pick up Plague and Fear. I was completely hooked in, I couldn't escape the FAYZ! I only had to wait a short while for Light to come out, and I got it the first day it was released. I started reading straight away, I was so excited! Well now I've finished it and I can't believe this amazing series has come to an end.

So, lets get started!

"88 HOURS 39 MINUTES"

As I was reading Light, I felt so many different things. I was shocked, scared, upset, amazed, heartbroken and most of all, Michael you achieved your goal because I was definitely creeped out.

My boy could not put the book down - literally! We went on a 2 hour car journey and he read the whole way - then he wouldn't get out of the car without a lot of cajoling and then couldn't wait to get back in for the 2 hour journey back so he could pick up where he had left off.

I am 40 pages in and I am struggling to put it down also.

If you have read the others you just have to read this one!

*****Updated April 9th 2013***** WOW! I woke this morning to read the last couple of chapters and they were great! Totally recommend this book and the whole series.

Thank you Michael Grant!

I was walking through the local supermarket book aisle and noticed a book with a black cover with bright green writing. I knew that I was getting a kindle for christmas so I made a mental note to give Gone a go when I had it. Its been just over a week since Christmas day and I have now read all 6 books. The need to continue reading these books for me can only be compared to the Harry Potter series. It has been a long time since I could say I felt this way about a book series and I adored all of the books in equal measure. I have never been so happy to have been dragged into the book aisle of a supermarket before. If you haven't read them, then do. Much like Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games, they say that these books are for children but really they are for all ages. You will fall in love with the characters (my personal favourites were Edilio and Lana) and you will laugh, cry, cheer for them, get angry with them and mourn them. The Fayz will draw you in, the mystery that surrounds the whole situation will leave you wanting more. If you think you can handle a world where everyone is under 15, there is anarchy, murder, cannabalism, lust, love, courage and much much more. You will see children grow into 'adults' and characters change for the better, and the worse. It is a true look into human survival. I personally think if it was adults it would have got a whole lot messier. Anyway, firstly I would like to thank Michael Grant for an ending worthy of the whole series, and secondly I will say to start reading Gone.. now. Its not just a FAYZ.

When I was reading the earlier books in the series I loved all the mysteries about the situation they were in and how it had happened and what had caused it. I also really loved the characters and excitement, personally, I kinda liked the gore and the creepier characters as without them the series wouldn't have been so gripping and stand out from a lot of young adult books but I get that thats not for everyone. Anyway, Light was just about as gory as the rest of the series so if you were okay with the rest of the books then light is the same in that respect. However I wasn't convinced that Michael Grant could create a satisfying ending. The odds were so much against a happy ending and I wasn't sure any explanation of what happened and/how they escaped the dome would really work and not just seem like some way of tying up the end of the series in a nice,neat way. On the other hand there was the chance that the series wouldn't be ended at all and would be left as a cliffhanger with no more books coming. Luckily, I was totally wrong. Light is just as good as the rest of the series (I'm not going to say better than the rest as the whole series has been pretty awesome). I'm not going to give away the actual ending but I thought the ending was satisfying and did justice to the rest of the series. It left me sad the series had ended (because it's one of the best series I've read, ever. And I read a lot.) but as it had to end, the ending in light was about as good as endings get.
