Light: A Gone Novel

Picture a world where there are no adults (you are a liar if you even think about saying you've never daydreamed about this.) Now throw in a wall that divides you from all the grown-ups and modern ways of communication. Toss in some gore, violence, sex and everything else your parents have warned you to stay away from, and you’re about halfway to the idea behind Gone.

"If you ever wanted to get dangerously hooked on a series without a movie attached, this is your chance...reading this series has been the best book experience of my life."

LIGHT, the sixth and final book in the series, starts off only days after the end of FEAR (the fifth book.) The barrier is now transparent; Gaia, Diana’s daughter, is out who-know-where doing who-knows-what; and nosey adults are poking their cameras to the barrier, acting more confused than the kids did at the beginning of the first book.

This entire series has made me laugh, bawl my eyes out and almost wet myself on more occasions than I will ever admit to. If you ever wanted to get dangerously hooked on a series without a movie attached, this is your chance. The characters have more life to them than most people I have ever met. You will cry when they cry (or, in many cases here, fall to their deaths.) You will get up and do a pride-less happy dance when they pull some miracle out from up their sleeves --- your heart will hurt.

For those of you who aren't familiar with this series, “Fayzian” is the term referring to fans of the Gone series by Michael Grant. I am one of them, and let me tell you something: reading this series has been the best book experience of my life.
