Book Review: Plague by Michael Grant

(Gone Series Book Four)


It's been eight months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. They've survived hunger. They've survived lies. But the stakes keep rising, and the dystopian horror keeps building in Plague, Michael Grant's fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Gone series.
A highly contagious fatal illness is spreading at an alarming rate, while sinister, predatory insects terrorize Perdido Beach. Sam, Astrid, Diana, and Caine are plagued by a growing doubt that they'll escape—or even survive—life in the FAYZ. With so much turmoil surrounding them, what desperate choices will they make when it comes to saving themselves and those they love?


My Review

This series just keeps getting better and better. Perdido Beach is suffering from a water shortage. There's rumor of a lake at the very edge of the dome which might have enough water to stave off disaster. So naturally Sam, and a few chosen others, go in search of the lake. But Sam couldn't have picked a worse time to leave town.

Drake, undead and virtually unkillable, on his own is bad enough. But when The Darkness supplies him with an almost indestructible army he will bring down a reign of terror the likes of which the kids have never seen. Their only hope for survival is to turn to an old enemy.

Caine and Diana are hidden away on a private island. Food, water, electricity, they have it all and more. But can Diana keep Caine by her side, or will his thirst for power destroy the life they've begun to build together?

Astrid is certain the only thing keeping the dome intact and isolating Perdido Beach from the real world is the power of her autistic brother, Pete. If only he would die, the dome would fall and countless other lives would be saved. But can she carry out the awful deed?

To top it all off, a terrible plague is blowing through Perdido Beach. A plague which has kids literally coughing themselves to death. Medicine can't slow it down. Lana's healing touch can't cure it. And as the death toll rises, everyone is asking the same question. Could this be the end?

Plague is the thrilling tale of a world gone mad. Heart pounding danger, nail biting tension, and human drama unfold with every turn of the page. Because in the FAYZ, there's no telling what might happen next.
