Light by Michael Grant (Gone book 6)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first five books in this series, Stop! I don’t want to ruin a fantastic story for you.
“It has been over a year since all of the adults disappeared. Gone.”
It’s been two days since the barrier between the FAYZ and the rest of the world went transparent but didn’t come down. For the first time in a year, children could see their parents although they cannot hear them. The written word is the only form of communication with the outside world. Instead of gaining sympathy from the world when the barrier went clear, his mother and everyone else saw Sam burn Penny to death as well as severely injuring young Gaia. The world is disgusted by the horrific and desperate actions the children had to endure and take part in to survive. Soon the media dubs them “little monsters.”
Gaia has gone off to heal herself. Repulsed that the gaiaphage is using her daughter’s body as a host, Diana is unable to leave her side. When Gaia admits that she has no powers of her own and accesses those of the others, Diana realizes why Caine wasn’t killed in the battle. Drake/Brittany devotes themselves to the gaiaphage and work to meet its needs. The gaiaphage is readying itself for the battle against Nemesis, aka Little Pete. Diana attempts to not raise Diana’s ire and begins to plot the destruction of the gaiaphage.
On opposing sides since day one of the FAYZ, Sam and Caine realize that the two of them are the best chance to defeat the gaiaphage. Putting their differences aside, the brothers go off to meet Gaia and Drake for the endgame.
It all comes down to the final showdown. Will the barrier finally come down? Who lives and who dies? Will the gaiaphage or Little Pete be victorious at the end? What does life bring for those who survive?
Don’t miss out on the epic conclusion to the Gone series that spans over six books and three thousand pages.
