It's been three months since everyone under the age of fifteen became trapped in the bubble known as
Three months since all the adults disappeared. GONE.
Food ran out weeks ago. Everyone is starving, but no one wants to figure out a solution. And each day, more and more kids are evolving, developing supernatural abilities that set them apart from the kids without powers. Tension rises and chaos is descending upon the town. It's the normal kids against the mutants. Each kid is out for himself, and even the good ones turn murderous.
But a larger problem looms. The Darkness, a sinister creature that has lived buried deep in the hills, begins calling to some of the teens in the FAYZ. Calling to them, guiding them, manipulating them.
The Darkness has awakened. And it is hungry.
I find this series so disturbing. It almost haunts me. I'm not sure why. I mean, clearly its fiction. But maybe it's because it has to do with this society that has to thrive without adults. And all these kids are running around doing adult things while still being kids. Or the monster that's really freaking creepy and I can't quite figure out.
I still can't say I love it. The characters are still kinda distant to me. And it takes me such a long time to get through a book. But man, I'm hooked. I want to know what's going to happen next, while hiding my eyes at the same time.
Bring on the next book, Lies!
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
