“Light” Michael Grant

Gone Series #6. Katherine Tegan Books (HarperCollins). 2013. 413 pp.

The gaiaphage has taken up residence in the body of Gaia, Diana and Caine’s daughter. Worried that Little Pete will find the means to return through someone else’s body and destroy her, she plans to kill everyone in the FAYZ so he won’t have a body to inhabit. Once the FAYZ is gone, she will go on to kill everyone on Earth and rule forever. With death and destruction raining around them, Sam and Caine will have to finally bury their mutual distrust to find a way to destroy the gaiaphage.

In this last book of the very exciting “Gone” series, showcasing a dystopian world one hopes to never inhabit, Grant pulls out all the stops in this continuing war of good versus evil. Readers 14 and older will find themselves shedding tears as favorite characters are lost to the gaiaphage’s ever increasing powers while others unexpectedly rise to the challenge of fighting for her defeat. It is a fitting tribute to those who fought, loved and suffered through life in the FAYZ, and I was sad to see it end.

As a School Librarian, I was Co-Chair of REFORMA's (The National Association to Promote Library Services to the Latinos and Spanish Speaking) CAYASC (Children & Young Adult Services Committee) for 2 yrs. As Co-Chair, I was in charge of all things YA. I have been a member of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) for many years, and have worked as a school librarian for many years. When I'm not blogging, I like to read, run, race and sing - not necessarily in that order. My blog reviews books I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), which leaves you to ask yourself "Should I Read it or Not?"
