Book Description

28 Mar 2013 Gone

The final instalment of Michael Grant’s epic Gone series. A blood-pumping, white-knuckle sci-fi thriller of epic proportions.

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. It’s the end of the FAYZ. Who will survive to see the light of day?

LIGHT is yet another tour-de-force from global sensation, Michael Grant. If there’s one sci-fi/fantasy book for teens you read this year, make it Gone.

“I love these books” – Stephen King

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIGHT: Best Teen Read 28 Mar 2013
By Nixaay
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally ruined my life. Forver. 28 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am any other average fangirl who loves reading books like this. The whole dystopian future type of thing is exactly my style. I started reading the GONE series while I was on holiday and it's taken me a year to read the series (I like to take my time).
When I first got LIGHT I was afraid to touch it. Sad, I know. I just knew it held so much power which would ruin my life. GONE is different from any other series in lots of special ways. By the time you finish the first book you feel like the characters are you best friends in the world. I knew that some of my friends where about to die and that's why LIGHT ruined my life.

*ATTENTION SPOILERS*

Its a simply ASDFGHJKLAMAZINGILOVEITSOOOOOOOMUCH book. I couldn't put it down and read it in three days. When I finally finished I was rocked by the death of Brianna. Breeze was my favourite character and some what of a best friend, like someone who I could really relate to. To put it simply, after her death I cried whenever someone said something Brianna related like "I love your new shoes."-tears. I was also shaken by Caine's death as I really hadn't expected it to come. Caine's story fascinates me and he has such a strong character development which comes from Cocky Kid to Evil Leader to King of the FAYZ to Wise Man in the end. I really felt for all the characters , especially these two and I will probably never get over the series. Ever. And I mean it.

*NO MORE SPOILERS*

I REALLY HIGHLY ABSOLOUTELY 100% recommend LIGHT as the perfect ending to an AMAZING experience.

*SPOILER*

I also cried when it said "You are now free to leave the FAYZ." But who wouldn't? After all we've been through.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Satisfying Ending to a Thrilling Series 2 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover
*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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great finish to a great series. 16 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading through the whole of the gone series without a break, this was the first book that I had to wait for. But it was definitely worth the wait. The whole series has been building up to this big finale, "the Endgame" as it's referred to in the book, and this book did not disappoint when delivering it. If you've gotten this far into the Gone series believing the plot lines then you'll continue to with this book, so I would recommend this to anyone who has read the series, and to pretty much anyone who hasn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing - My son's words - not mine...yet! 8 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!
