It's been over a year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.
In the time since everyperson over the age of fourteen disap-peared from the town of Perdido Beach, California, countless battles have been fought: battles against hunger and lies and plague, and epic battles of good against evil. And now, the gaiaphage has been reborn as Diana's malicious mutant daughter, Gaia. Gaia is endlessly hungry for destruction. She yearns to conquer her Nemesis, Little Pete, and then bend the entire world to her warped will. As long-standing enemies become allies, secrets are revealed and unexpected sacrifices are made. Will their attempts to save themselves and one another matter in the end, or will the kids of Perdido Beach perish in this final power struggle?
Light, the sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Gone series by Michael Grant, creates a masterful, arresting conclusion to life in the FAYZ.

At a Glance:
Light is the conclusion what is now one of my favorite series that I've ever read. I read the first five books in the Gone series in the duration of a week. Coincidentally, this book Light, came out the very day that I finished its predecessor, Lies. I was very happy to discover this fact.

A cover very similar to those of the other books in the series. It shows several of the book's characters posing rather dramatically. I, personally, have never been a fan of real people shown on the covers of books. It feels too much like a movie cover then, and I also think that it forces the image of a character upon the reader, rather than allowing the reader to imagine the character based on their description given in the book.

Probably the most fantastic aspect of the Gone series is its never-ceasing action. There is never a dull moment in any of these books, and Light is certainly no exception. I was completely unable to put this book down. It constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. There is never repetition in battle scenes, which are never far apart from each other. This is very impressive to me. Grant always keeps his writing unique and fresh, so you never will get bored with the series.

I've never been a huge fan of romance in books, but I was impressed with the writing of this book's romance. It was... well, it was romantic. Don't really know how else to put it. This is always the part of book reviews that I'm bad at writing. But I will mention the best romance scene of the book, in my opinion. The kiss that went on for a very long time.

Something I loved:
The spectacular writing, and the constant action.

No, I think the series finished off very nicely, tying up all up all loose knots.

Would I recommend it?
Absolutely. I've already recommended this series to several of my friends. It's definitely something you should read.

Did my friends like it? 
Yes, I would never have read it if it hadn't been recommended to me by several friends.

Will I buy/keep it?
This series will forever be on my favorite's shelf.
