Publisher Comments:

It's been one year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

despite the hunger, despite the lies, even despite the plague, the kids of Perdido Beach are determined to survive. Creeping into the tenuous new world they've built, though, is the worst incarnation yet of the enemy known as the Darkness: fear.

Within the FAYZ, life breaks down while the Darkness takes over—turning the dome-world of the FAYZ entirely black. A will to survive and a desire to take care of those they love endures in this ravaged band, even in the bleakest moments. But in darkness, the worst fears of all emerge, and the cruelest of intentions are carried out. After so many months, is all about to be lost in the FAYZ?

About the Author

Michael Grant, author of the Gone series and the Magnificent Twelve series, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, 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 year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.

Fear is definitely the best Gone book yet. A tentative peace has emerged between Caine in Perdido Beach and Sam in Lake Tramonto. Tensions between freaks and normals has faded. Food is plentiful and starvation is no longer an issue. Drake hasn't been spotted in ages.

Suddenly, however, the barrier begins to turn black. Food once more becomes an issue. Astrid is back, but so is Drake and this time he must be faced in the dark.

Each installment in this series is better than the last, and Fear is no exception. Alternating between Pete's spirit, those trapped in the FAYZ and those trapped without, this book is by far the most fascinating and the most frightening. With the children facing their greatest threat yet, under observation of those outside, this book surely lives up to it's name. As with the previous books, I highly recommend you read this.
