Description

Product Description

The third book in Michael Grant''s New York Times bestselling Gone series, Lies is another heart-in-your-throat page-turner, both chilling and thought-provoking.

It''s been seven months since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

It happens in one night. A girl who died now walks among the living; Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach, and amid the flames and smoke, Sam sees the figure of the boy he fears the most: Drake. But Drake is dead. Sam and Caine defeated him along with the Darkness—or so they thought.

As Perdido Beach burns, battles rage: Astrid against the Town Council; the Human Crew versus the mutants; and Sam against Drake, who is back from the dead and ready to finish where he and Sam left off. And all the while deadly rumors are raging like the fire itself, spread by the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza. They say that death is a way to escape the FAYZ. Conditions are worse than ever and kids are desperate to get out. But are they desperate enough to believe that death will set them free?

“Disturbing, brilliantly plotted, and boasting a balanced mix of action and scheming.” —ALA Booklist

Since the power went out in the FAYZ, life has gotten worse. Food is scarce, the Human Crew has waged war on the "Freaks" and now people who used to be dead are walking around town. In the third installment of Michael Grant''s Gone series, Lies delves deeper and darker into a world where all adults are gone, kids as young as five are forced to take care of themselves, and reality is never quite as it seems.

While Sam began life in the FAYZ as the natural hero, the natural leader, he hasn''t recovered from being whipped within an inch of his life by Drake Merwin. Now he is unstable at best, but still the one kids look up to. While Astrid is desperately trying to establish a government to maintain order, her council''s complete lack of respect or power among the kids is leaving the FAYZ in danger. Zil and the Human Crew are doing everything they can to destroy the power of the Freaks, starting with amassing weapons and getting as many normal kids as possible on their side.

The tenuous stability in the FAYZ breaks down quickly, though, when the Prophetess Orsay begins telling kids she can hear their parents dreams from outside the wall. She tells them they can return to their parents by blinking out when they turn 15. Thanks to her handler Nereeza, her message is heard far and wide. Then a broken Caine enlists the help of Zil and the Human Crew to create a diversion in Perdido Beach by burning houses down so Caine and the few starving, cannibalistic cohorts he has left can steal boats and seek out the island that belonged to an actor and his wife- a place that just has to be full of food. As Zil follows through with his side of the bargain, the FAYZ erupts in chaos. Can Astrid, Edilio, and Sam keep the bizarre civilization together through the chaos?

This installment of the series is the darkest yet. Grant wasted no sentiment on the fact that this was a young adult series and pulled out all the horrors of the apocalyptic and dystopian genres- starvation, cannibalism, death, etc. This book is as adult as it could be without completely crossing the line of the young adult genre. Descriptions of Caine''s crew seeking out the body of a boy who killed himself in order to cook and eat him was probably the creepiest part of the book. This is not a story for the faint of heart! While it is dark, though, there is always a hope amongst the kids of the FAYZ. They are trying to make life as tolerable as possible. It is hard, though, with no electricity and having to rely on children to keep society together. The twists are interesting, new characters are introduced, and the action keeps you flying through this book as fast as possible. While it was an amazing volume, this series is getting more and more mature and its readers should be ready to handle the harsh circumstances it deals with.

Title: Lies

My Review

Ok, to start I want to warn you that this review will contain spoilers. I usually like to avoid them but when you''re 2000 pages and 4 books into a 6 books series, that''s kind of hard to do. So don''t say that I didn''t warn you.

Where do I begin with this story? You may wonder why I gave it 3.5 stars rather than 4 stars. I will be more specific about this later, but I think that generally I felt somewhat less enthusiasm for this installment than the prior three. Now, on to specifics...

As with the first three, I find Mr. Grant to be incredibly brave. It''s obvious that he''s written these stories the way that he wanted to do so, and not according to any of the proscribed theories of "how to succeed" in writing. Those theories including things like, "ya readers won''t read more than 100,000 words," and, "ya readers want 1st person POV like Bella...not multi-POV," and, "you have to keep the number of characters to a minimum to avoid confusion."

Now, as a ya writer, I''ve heard these dictates directed at me as if they came from on high, and seeing as I have not yet snagged an agent with my stories (which defy the dictates as well), I have a tendency to be swayed. But no more! Mr. Grant has shown that you can write a captivating and POPULAR story that includes a whole gol-danged mess of goings on! Good Lord a''Mighty at times it''s even too much for me and I like that sort of thing.

The other thing that makes him brave, IMHO, is that he is willing to explore so many themes at once: us vs them (Freaks vs Normals, Whites vs. Minorities, Rich vs. Poor), God vs. Evil, right vs. wrong, and working together vs. going it alone. His bravery is what makes this such a complicated and layered story. On the surface, it''s Lord of the Flies meets Marvel, (as I said about Gone) but beneath the surface there are more themes running together than I may have encountered in any other single story. And yes, it is a single story. There are consistent elements, the most central of which are Sam, Astrid, Little Pete, Edilio, Albert, Mary, Dahra, Brianna, Dekka, Jack, Orc, Howard, Lana, Caine, Diana, Drake, and the Gaiaphage. "WOW!" I hear you cry (if you haven''t read the others yet). "THAT''S the cast?" No, that''s the CENTRAL cast, peeps. There are many, many, many, many other characters. Pack Leader, for example (How do you make a talking coyote a character? Ask Mr. Grant) If I were to list all the characters, I''d run out of room on my blog.

Even so, the central story is based in the phenomenon known as the FAYZ. How do they all survive (hopefully without killing each other) until the FAYZ is ended? What if it doesn''t end? And where does the Gaiaphage come into it?

In LIES, you think that the Gaiaphage was destroyed in Hunger (silly you!), only to find out it''s come back strong and is using deception to manipulate the children of the FAYZ. Due to Albert''s overwhelming (if also selfishly driven) sense of organization, a self-sufficient FAYZ society has emerged from Hunger. Caine and his cohort have been banished (essentially) to Coates where they are steadily starving. Sam and the rest of the children of the FAYZ are living off the farmed, hunted, and fished foods provided by some of the children...and a market using currency invented and named after Albert (`Bertos) has emerged. All seems to be well, if abnormal, in the FAYZ.
But of course, it''s not. It''s all about the LIES.

The Gaiaphage has survived and is wreaking all kinds of havoc. It''s created (with Little Pete''s unknowing help and supposed-to-be non-functional Game Boy) a girl named Nerezza who manipulates the Dreamwalker, Orsay, into convincing children that the "poof" at fifteen will return them to the former world and the loving arms of their parents. It also manages to raise Drake from the dead using Brittany''s broken body.

At the same time, Zil and his idiotic and zealous "Human Crew" are still making trouble and looking to make more.

What I liked about LIES was the action, the new characters, the lost characters, the changing characters, and the basic 15 layer cake with a gooey, evil, green center (the Gaiaphage).

What make me hold back a star or two was the 15 layer cake with a gooey, evil green center. Huh? Well, let me tell you that even I find it hard to keep up with all the characters and Grant is NOT holding back in adding (and killing) more of them. And he switches POVs MUCH more often and casually than in prior books, so you definitely head-hop a TON.

There is a new group of characters that are revealed to be living on an island off the coast in the home of the super-rich former movie star couple that adopted them. The rip from Brangelina was definitely tongue-in-cheek, but also so direct that it was kind of an eye-roller. That being said, I loved Sanjit and Choo (Wisdom and Virtue). They were really enjoyable additions.

Also, there was drama between Sam and Astrid that seemed a little...overwrought. Then again, you''d expect everyone to have mentally broken by now so it''s not implausible that Sam would break down and that Astrid would drive him away, but I found it a little tiring, given everything else that was going on. It''s like the constant state of imminent disaster is so exhausting that I don''t have the energy for romantic teen drama at the same time.

Of course, I can''t say that I didn''t soak LIES up like a sponge, because I did. The ending was well done and made me excited for the next one (which I''ve already read...review coming soon), and I continue to like the carefully wrought chaos of this story.

One thing I''d like to add. Stephen King loves these books, and this may give those of you who are not into horror pause. I''m not a horror buff, but I like a good story. Does this qualify as horror? Not directly. Does it have horrifying elements? YES. There is a ton of violence and darkness and fear. And all the people suffering this terror and darkness and death are children. Prior to the popularity of the Hunger Games, I might have warned readers more heavily, but given that fact...this should be an enjoyable read for all but the most sensitive of readers (no disparagement...violence isn''t for everyone).

I still highly recommend this series. It''s so incredibly imaginative that I am eager to see how Mr. Grant ties it all up in a pretty bow at the end. It will be quite the undertaking, but unlike my prior worries, I no longer think that he won''t be able to pull it off.

I''ve been addicted to the Gone series since it came out, and couldn''t wait to get my hands on Lies, the third book in the series! These books are for young adults, but be prepared for gruesomeness if you read them. Example: In the beginning, a few of the characters eat their dead friend to stay alive, since they''re running low on food and starving to death.

This book was interesting, although not my favorite in the series (that would be the first one!) What was nice was that it seemed like Grant was starting to give us some answers about what is going on in the real world. (Or is he? I was unsure about if the part about the outside world was real or not, and I would love to hear your opinions on it!) It gave an interesting twist to the story, which I enjoyed.

While not as action packed as some of the others, it seemed obvious from the beginning that Lies is leading up to the fourth book in the series, Plague. (I''m always a fan of crisis situations, and just the title of Plague makes me intrigued about what''s in store next.)

We didn''t see as much of Sam and Astrid in this one, and it would have been nice if they had more scenes, especially Astrid, because she''s an interesting character. Her theories about what''s going on in the FAYZ are interesting, because it brings up iquestions about what''s happening. Also, since she''s a two bar, I''m still wondering what her ability is, if she can manifest it at all! I''m thinking intuition, but I''m not sure.

The series has large similarities to X-Men, although I think it''s more interesting with the kids having to learn to survive by themselves in the bubble of Perdido Beach. I would definitely recommend the series to those of you who haven''t read it yet!

"Lies," the third book in the Gone Series, is fantastic for a YA novel. The first book, "Gone," still out ranks it''s two sequels. "Lies" has many aspects of the first book that makes it great (complex characters, relatively well written book, action, dives into human behaviors, mistakes, redemption) but "Gone" still holds the torch!

Subjects Grant explores in his book are the moral dilemmas and corruptions within an administration. Specifically, does doing the wrong thing, for the right reasons, make it the right thing to do? It''s almost... comical, in a grotesque way, the way lies, deceptions and personal gain enter into an adolescent "government," much the same way it enters into real world governments. Not even 15 year old children can escape the temptations to compromise their principles, and justify their compromises by human reasoning. Good material - kept me committed to the story.

It was interesting to watch (in this book and its immediate predecessor, "Hunger,") the development of money, businesses and a regime. The book provided a simple model for teenagers to understand currency, economics and the workings of a local government. I was hoping Grant would address taxes as well. How else were the fire department, militia and council being paid for :-P

I strongly recommend parents read this book first before they give it to their children. There is some material that parents may or may not find appropriate for their teenagers. Do not just read the first book in the series and judge the rest of the books from there. Each book is different.

I can''t help but think of this book as Lord of the Flies on steroids. It''s like driving by a car wreck - you can''t help but look.

Don''t get me wrong. I really like this series. Grant writes an engrossing page-turner. I was on the edge of my seat and could hardly put the book down. His characters are well developed, if frightening. You can''t help put care for and sympathize with the "good guys" and shiver, perhaps shrink away from the "bad guys."

Lies is the third in this series, following Gone and Hunger. Plague is scheduled for release in April of 2011. Nothing is ever easy in the FAYZ. The residents barely survive one threat before facing another one. In this latest installment, people thought dead now walk the streets, the non-freaks (Grant''s terminology, not mine) are beginning to resent the Freaks (those with strange powers), and what little semblance of order there was from the establishment of the Town Council quickly evaporates. Zil, leader of the Human Crew sets fire to the town in an attempt to take power away from the mutants (freaks). Osray, now labeled the Prophetess by her strange new companion Nerezza, seems to be telling the children they should embrace the "poof" or maybe even death as a way to escape the FAYZ. As tempers flare, people go hungry and the evil darkness threatens to return (if it ever really left), Sam, Astrid, Edilio and the others must find a way to survive. And even if they survive what will they be facing next?

I can''t wait for the next installment.

This is the 3rd installment of the Gone series and so far, I am still invested in the story and the characters. While YA isn''t normally my go-to genre, Michael Grant''s series has me pretty hooked. Admittedly, it was the King comparison that made me pick these up in the first place and his influence is strong, both in the overt horrors that take place and in the hidden darkness that starts to envelop the kids as their situation deteriorates. So after this 3rd book, I guess I''m in it for the long haul. Three more books to go!

It has been seven months since all the adults disappeared and all the children under 15 are still struggling with life in the FAYZ. Hunger is an ever present problem, kids are getting drunk and smoking and carrying weapons. Some are trying to set authority with a Town Council; others aren''t above violence and destruction to get their way. As Sam and Astrid fight (sometimes with each other) to do the right thing they are also dealing with the so-called prophetess who is saying death is the way to escape the FAYZ. On top of that Sam and others think they see Drake the dreaded Whip Hand, but he''s dead - isn''t he?

"Lies" is the exciting third book in Michael Grant''s thrilling "Gone" series for young adults (the first two books are Gone and Hunger: A Gone Novel ). Grant has managed to keep the tension throughout the series and you feel that the kids (some of whom are oh so young) as many struggle to do the right thing - not all agree on what the right thing is. While it is easy to feel sorry for Sam as he tries to lead those who don''t necessarily want a leader and Astrid who is beginning to realize she is not always right, it is Mary who I felt the most sorry for as she has to decide whether or not to "poof" when she turns 15. This is not an easy decision for Mary - she is tired of taking care of the "littles" yet wonders who''ll take care of them if she does disappear. Grant fills the book with many other memorable characters (for better or worse) including Orsay and Nerezza, Lana, Zil, Caine, Sanjit, Brianna, Dekka, Brittney, and more.

The Gone series reminds me a lot of a Stephen King type series for young adults and never more so than with this book which reminds me a lot of King''s Under the Dome: A Novel . It is interesting to see what two authors do with a similar concept. There is a lot of good versus evil in both books and lots of destruction. Without giving anything away I do think Grant came up with a better explanation of what caused the FAYZ then King did with his dome. Grant gives readers just enough glimpses of life beyond the FAYZ to make readers wonder who among the children is doing the right thing - it will be interesting to see how Grant deals with the ramifications of the actions of all those living in the FAYZ - both the "good guys" and the "bad guys".

"Lies" is another excellent entry in Michael Grant''s thrilling "Gone" series.

Lies is the third book in the Gone Series. Lies is an epic read. Kids are trapped in a Dome and without any adults. In Perdido Beach, Sam and Astrid aren’t getting on. Zil and his human crew continue their campaign against kids with powers, leading them to set a massive fire that threatens to destroy all of Perdido Beach. Albert continues quietly with his Alberto currency and running the market. Mother Mary struggles with the responsibility of the daycare, her mental health and her upcoming fifteenth birthday. Brittney comes back to life and digs her way out of her grave. Kids start to report sightings of a Drake, the boy with the whip hand who died in Hunger. Sam is frustrated at the council’s lack of decision and action about the Human Crew’s antics. Sam goes AWOL emotionally traumatised at the thought that Drake, who tortured him, may have returned to the land of the living. Orsay becomes a self-proclaimed Prophetess, claiming that she can see into parents dreams outside of the barrier. She also claims to be able to predict the future. Orsay gets a protecter called Nerezza, a weird kid that nobody seems to have seen before. The council decide to spread the lie that Orsay is making up her ability to reach kid’s parents on the outside of the dome. Meanwhile Caine and his followers have become desperate. The last straw for Caine is eating a dead kid. Caine, Dianna and his followers steal a boat to head to an island which holds the promise of food. I particularly enjoyed reading the good side of Dianna, as it added depth to her character. As Lies continues some of the kids are start to get ill, knocking some of the kids with powers out of play at vital moments. The darkness continues to manipulate kids and events throughout the book. Lies develops the main characters well – each having their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations. It adds in some new characters as well. Some of my favourite new characters were: Justin & Roger, Peace, Sanjit and Virtue. As always the plot is fast-paced, mostly showing rather than telling the story. Description is sparse, but enough to give the reader a good visual. Lies gives enough of the back story, so if you haven’t read Gone or Hunger you can still enjoy it without feeling like you’re missing something. But I would still recommend that you read both of them first. On everyone of the Gone Series books it has a quote from Stephen King ‘I love these books.’ and I completely agree with him. I love these books.

After reading the first two books, I have found myself a true Gone fan! Lies throws us straight back into the FAYZ and this book is one big rollercoaster from beginning to end. The main character of the series, Sam isn''t in this book as much but I enjoyed that, it gave us time to focus on others and new groups and his absence is understandable. My favourite addition was Zil and his Human Crew who out to destroy all that is mutant. And although I love Dekkha, I don''t think the ''lesbian'' storyline has much meat to it... Maybe it will expand later in the series. I hope so as randomly reminding us she is gay seems to not flow right currently. At points, the story gets a little far fetched (watching a film in order to learn how to pilot a helicopter), but I think the author manages to make us think... ''Ok maybe that could be possible... in desperate times...'' This book has some genuine sad moments and I''m glad that the author doesn''t mind killing characters off. I won''t mention names... Looking forward to Book 4. Have decided to read something inbetween so to go into the fourth with fresh eyes. If you like XMen, you will love the series there is a huge resemblance to the good vs bad mutants and the humans confused in the middle. Well worth a read!
