Plague Review

497 pages
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. Yet despite the simmering unrest left behind by so many battles, power struggles, and angry divides, there is a momentary calm in Perdido Beach. But enemies in the FAYZ don't just fade away, and in the quiet, deadly things are stirring, mutating, and finding their way free. The Darkness has found its way into the mind of its Nemesis at last and is controlling it through a haze of delirium and confusion. A highly contagious, fatal illness spreads at an alarming rate. Sinister, predatory insects terrorize Perdido Beach. And 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? 

Wow. Out of all the books in the Gone Novel series this is definitely the best. It is also the most explicitly gruesome one I have read so far. From the plague killing people off, to giant bugs erupting out of the kids' skin, nothing remains the same in the FAYZ. There is so much turmoil and adventure going on in this one novel. The battle for control of the FAYZ becomes more intense. I still don't like the fact that you don't see Sam step up as much but you do see a change in Caine's way of approaching things. Most of the characters go through personal changes as well that make this novel even more exciting. I know that anyone who reads this novel will enjoy it but I recommend you read the first three first so you understand how the characters got to this point. I definitely can't wait for the next novel in this series!
