Fear by Michael Grant

Fear by Michael Grant
2012, Katherine Tegen Books
Series: Book 5 of Gone

Synopsis: It's been one year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

Despite the hunger and the lies, even despite the plague, the kids of Perdido Beach are determined to survive. Creeping into the tenuous new world they've built, though, is perhaps the worst incarnation yet of the enemy known as the Darkness: fear.

Within the FAYZ, life breaks down while the Darkness takes over, literally—turning the dome-world of the FAYZ entirely black. In darkness, the worst fears of all emerge, and the cruelest of intentions are carried out. But even in their darkest moments, the inhabitants of the FAYZ maintain a will to survive and a desire to take care of the others in their ravaged band that endures, no matter what the cost.

The Good: Something wonderful happened in this book - we got a line to the outside world! The chapters have rotate different characters perspectives and in Fear, we got full chapters of Sam and Caine's mother. We got to know what happened to those who aged out. We know how the world is reacting. We know what's going on with the military and the scientists. It was amazing. I never cared about the Diana story line before. Shes never been very important. But, whoa boy, did she become pivotal quick. I couldn't get enough of her story. Big, big things happening throughout the book. There was no good place to put the book down. I promised it was the last chapter before bed repeatedly. And still had to keep going. The next book is the last book, so this book brought a lot of situations to their boiling point. I can't wait to see the whole thing come together.

The Bad: Not a thing.
