The world was changing. The old order was dead or dying. The center, to quote the poem, was not holding, it was coming apart.Woah. This is like the Gone series on steroids. I was hesitant about picking up Monster, thinking that it would be an unnecessary attempt to extend a series that had already been wrapped up well-- but it isn't at all. This is the seventh book I never knew I needed. I can't wait to see what happens next!I think fans of the Gone series will eat this up and be longing for mor [...]
Ugh I am so wREAKED right now. So mad so so mad. I want the next book so freaking bad I was stalking online to see when I can preorder but also??? There's so many problems with this book, and I'm not a fan of the author's behaviour online. But the Gone series was what I grew up with and it meant a lot to me and this is like COMING BACK TO A CHILDHOOD FRIEND AND GAH.Plus it mentioned Sam Temple. And basically *slams 5 stars on the table just for the single 3 sentences of him* SAM. SAMMMMM.I frikk [...]
I've not made it a secret in the history of my online book blogging presence that I was a big fan of the Gone series as a kid. I read the series toward the end of primary school, and I really loved it then. It was my favourite series and it got me into reading. Those memories are really fond for me stillbutI'm an adult now, and it's been brought to my attention recently that the series is problematic in many aspects of it's characterisation of minorities. I will be providing links to own voices [...]
My BlogActual Rating 3.5 stars Spoiler FreeWell, that was one hell of a freaking rollercoaster ride. Action-packed the entire way through, it definitely wasn’t a boring read! I have mixed emotions on my view but i will divulge into that in a second.For everyone who has already read the gone series a long while ago, don’t worry! Michael grant starts this book with rewriting the last scene in the dome from a new character’s POV to help remind us how it ended. Throughout the book, it does men [...]
WHY? HOW? WHAT? WHYYYYY? This was legit the first series I've ever read so it kinda feels like a classic to me and it really doesnt need anything added to the story Im excited that this is going to happen but it better be as good as the originals or else Ima shoot something, preferably with beating heart.
A follow-up to Gone at last?YES. PLEASE.Four years after Michael Grant seemingly ended the series with the sixth and final novel Light, here beginneth a new trilogy that takes the FAYZ and its alien virus and all its ramifications and brings them to a more global stage. Well, so far a lot of the action is confined to the US, and especially to California (there's a lot of Bay Area action scenes, including one of the most inventive spins yet on Golden Gate Bridge destruction), but there are sprink [...]
Thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in away influence my opinion on it.I am a really huge fan of the Gone series, I devoured all the book in 4 days with almost non stop reading. I was really excited to hear about Monster because I really missed the series. It was really great coming back into this disturbingly wonderful world. The writing is top notch as usual and easy to get absorbed with. This is what drew me to the series in the first pl [...]
4.5* - Well that was one hell of a ride, I was literally exhausted after finishing! eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for honest review!So, going into this I'd only read the first in the Gone series so was aware of what the Fayze was but obviously had no idea about how it all ended. If you're at all inclined, even slightly, to read that series then definitely go do that before you get to this one. Monster goes straight in with what I assume is an account of the happenings at the end of the [...]
Michael Grant4 starson the line. Mr. Grant has managed to take us back to the days of the FAYZ, only four years later. But this time without a dome. Monster contains old and new characters, some likable, so not so likeable. (Yes, Drake (Whip Hand) is back in a minor role). Mainly focusing on new characters, this action-packed whirlwind of a plot takes us all over the globe, but mainly focuses in California, U.S.A.I do not want to give away too much of the plot - mainly because doing so would cau [...]
it's been four years since a meteorite hit perdido beach and everyone disappeared. gone. It's been two years since i finished this series and i'm so glad that i get to step back into this series again with a new book and i absolutely loved every moment of this book. The gone series will forever be one of my favourite series that i have ever read i just love it so much.Plot:This book picks up about 4 years after the events of the sixth book and we pick up following a new range of characters but a [...]
Michael Grant's 'Gone' series is one of my all-time favourite series so when I found out that 'Monster' was a follow on I knew I HAD to get my hands on a copy. I had extremely high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed. IT WAS AMAZING! I loved how some of the main characters from the FAYZ were present and I found it really interesting to see how they were living their lives after their nightmare. The interweaving of the new characters with the older ones was very well done, and their vo [...]

whaat?! another book? Dekka's? i haven't even moved on from Brianna's death
Well, this is a truly outstanding book. It's exciting, pacey and mixes the real world with the absolutely incredible and fantastical. It would be perfect for fans of DC/Marvel, or Brandon Sanderson and Stephen King. Although it's set after the events of the Gone series, it can be read as a newcomer to MG as the story largely focuses on the current events, however it does explain the goings on of the last chapters of Light. In my opinion, so much happens in the whole of the Gone series, that even [...]
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book and it did not disappoint! GONE is one of my favourite series ever and I've been desperate for a follow up for so long! It follows the stories of several new characters as well as a couple of characters from the original series, the main one being Dekka, who is still just as badass as she always was. Shade Darby is a new character who has a burning desire to erase what happened when the Perdido Beach dome came down, and she brings along her trans [...]
I devoured all the books in the "Gone" series and one of my favorite characters was Dekka. So it was amazing to find her as one of the main characters in this book. I loved the world building and the characters. The story isn't for the faint hearted, there's a lot of graphic description and a lot of wounded and/or dead. And it's a long story. But with everything happening it didn't feel like 500+ pages. I highly recommend this book and all the other books in this series. I chose to read this boo [...]
I got this book early because my friend lent me her ARC and I will forever be grateful.I'm gonna be as spoiler-free as I can because I know this book isn't technically out yet, but I'm gonna mention some spoilers towards the end, so just a heads up.A lot of spin-offs usually feel unnecessary. Most of the time, you can tell that a spin-off is something the creator just half-assedly threw together so they could make more money, and was totally irrelevant to the original story. But I didn't feel th [...]
When I heard that Michael Grant was writing a sequeling series to one of my favorite series of all time, I was skeptical. I've read some great sequel-series and some awful ones. I wondered what the story would even be since everything was resolved. I'm honestly still wondering that after reading it. I decided to give it a shot because I had faith in one of my favorite authors. Now, I'm not sure if that faith was justified.This book was basically an alternate version of the Gone series but with a [...]
OH. MY. GOD.I've been a fan of Gone since I was eleven years old, so nearly nine years, and it has been my favourite series since I first read it. No other series has ever compared to my love for this one and I was sad that it ended, so you can imagine my pure excitement and overwhelming happiness when Monster was announced. I will admit that despite my excitement, I was nervous about it. I was worried it was going to be an unnecessary addition to an already perfect series. But let me tell you, [...]
The amount of joy at finding out a favorite but completed series has more books coming cannot be expressed in human terms. It sounds kind of like a squeal and is paired with flapping hands and an ear-to-ear grin. I was enthralled by the Gone series--it is a go-to recommendation for my teens and is still one of my favorite series of all time. This book starts a few years after the last book and creates a whole new series of problems, crises, and incredibly bad-ass battles, featuring some amazing [...]
I will admit I took a punt on this one as I fancied something completely different to read alongside my normal books and had seen this authors Gone series mentioned many times before and was intrigued with the fandom surrounding it. After checking it would be ok to read as a newcomer to the series I delved in and wow!, prepare for your imagination to be blown with teenagers who have contracted a virus and now have unique superpowers but it's how they all respond differently to these powers that [...]
Michael Grant, you once again stole copious hours of my day I will never get back. What an excellent, brilliantly gripping story! I’ll always love Rio and the girls a little bit more, because Front Lines was unbeatable in my eyes, but superheroes (and SuperMONSTERS!) came pretty close.This story is very obviously a new spin on the World Grant created with the Gone series. Whilst it definitely helps, and probably adds to the reading experience, to have some memory of the Gone characters, as som [...]
"Normal had left the building, and crazy was in charge now." Crazy is always in charge when Grant is writing. All the intensity of the FAYZ without the dome - yes, it's bad. Very bad, and only the kids who survived the PBA understand how bad it can be - and then it gets worse. Grant delivers his standard bloodbath of fear, sarcasm, and oh yes, literal bloodbath after bloodbath. His mind is a dark place where beautiful stories come to life, and call me crazy but I can't get enough. When I put my [...]
Now, that was a pretty good follow up to an intense series. I'm a huge fan of the Gone books and I was worried about this one, however, it did not disappoint! I don't want to give anything anyway so I'll just say it's definitely worth the read and you should check it out if you're a fan of the series. Highly looking forward to the next installment (fingers crossed)!
I'm loving this series sso far, but I'm not sure I'll be reading this. Dekka isn't a favorite of mine. I actually can't stand her right now to be honest. So unless my feelings for her change, I will not be reading this. Especially if it's just her book.
NO WAYS PLEASE.
I had extremely high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed. IT WAS AMAZING!I loved how some of the main characters from the FAYZ were present and I found it really interesting to see how they were living their lives after their nightmare. The interweaving of the new characters with the older ones was very well done, and their voice was portrayed beautifully causing you to feel all their emotions and form your own judgements about the villains/heros.I hope this is the start of a new seri [...]
