Book 3 (Book 1: Gone, Book 2: Hunger:A Gone Novel)
It’s been seven months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. It happens in one night. A girl who died now walks among the living; Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach; and amid the flames and smoke, Sam sees the figure of the boy he fears the most: Drake. But Drake is dead. Sam and Caine defeated him along with the Darkness-or so they thought. As Perdido Beach burns, battles rage: Astrid against the Town Council, the Human Crew versus the mutants; and Sam against Drake, who is back from the dead and ready to finish where he and Sam left off. And all the while deadly rumors are raging like the fire itself, spread by the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ. Conditions are worse than ever and kids are desperate to get out. But are they desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?
<Spoiler warning> From what I remember about this book, this book started off kind of slow. Not much happened throughout the book. There wasn’t really any startling new developments. Characters didn’t even really develop. By the end of the book we have Drake/Brittany sharing a body and fighting for control being guarded by Orc, the Darkness and Little Pete fighting within Little Pete’s mind, Sam confused and frustrated about what his role is, Diana and Caine living on an island, the Human Crew continues to stir up trouble, and Astrid being very pretencious. The other characters play small roles and some new characters are introduced as well. In the book we are given glimpses of what could possibly going on outside the wall but whether these glimpses are true or not remain a mystery. I would recommend this book to those that have enjoyed the series so far.
The next book in the series is Plague, followed by Fear and then Light
