It’s been more than a year since every person over the age of fifteen disappeared from the town of Perdido Beach, California. In that time, countless battles have been fought: Battles against hunger and lies and plagues and worse, battles of good against evil, and kid against kid. Allegiances have been won, lost, betrayed, and won again; ideologies have been shattered and created anew, and the kids of the FAYZ have begun to believe that their new society is the only life they’ll ever know. But now that the Darkness has found a way to be reborn, the tenuous existence they‘ve established is likely to be shattered for good. Will the kids of Perdido Beach even survive?
Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will know that I am a huge fan of Michael Grant’s books. The Gone series is one of the best Young Adult series that I have ever read and I can not recommend them enough. Light is the last book in the Gone series and it did not disappoint me. I don’t think I am going to be able to give the book the justice it deserves in my review but I will have a go.
On its release date, I went and bought a copy of the book and did not put it down until I was finished reading.
Grant kept the suspense going right till the end of the book and I could not have asked for a better ending. It was not how I thought the books were going to end but I am happy with ending and feel like it tied up the whole series.
I was so happy to get to the end and realise that Grant had included Aftermath chapters, I am one of those readers that always wonders what happens to characters after the story has ended. This series has been with me for so long it was nice to see what happened to them. Though the Aftermath chapter could have been longer as there are still some loose ends that have been left to the reader’s imagination.
