Publisher's Summary

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?

Critic Reviews

"Grant continues to hurtle through an endlessly fascinating (and increasingly grim) story line; his chief achievement, though, is how the X-Men-style powers of his cast never overwhelm the mournful realization that their world is slowly degenerating into brutality." ( Booklist)

Beautiful series!

Honestly all the bad reviews just get on my nerves. He says one word you don’t like so you have to insult him? I think he does an amazing job of narrating and changing the voices and really understand the emotions of the kids. The book drives me crazy with how much violence and unnecessary problems arise but it’s such an amazingly entertaining ride. I couldn’t imagine who would portray Sam better than he is right now. I’ve been binge listening for his series and i can’t wait to start the next book.
