Storyline (From Goodreads):
   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 cruellest 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.

   Fear, Michael Grant's fifth book in the bestselling dystopian Gone series, will thrill readers . . . even as it terrifies them

   I really enjoyed this book. I loved all the intricate plots and the way the author portrayed all of the characters in the FAYZ.
   This is the 5th and penultimate book in the Gone series, and in my view, is well worth reading. It has a lot of characters, but despite what can sometimes happen in books, you don’t get confused with who is who.
   I loved the way the plot moved, which was not so slow that you got bored reading, but not fast enough for you to find yourself confused and wondering what was happening.
   I also liked the way the storyline flicked between the Lake, Perdido Beach, Peter, Clifftop, The Mine and Outside. This made the story even more interesting and helped me understand more.
   Another thing I liked was the ending. I won’t say what happened, but it made me really want to continue reading and to want to read Light, the next book in the series.
   All in all, I felt that this was a very good book full of cliff hangers, narrators and excitement. Because of this, I feel that this book is a book worthy of the Carnegie Medal.
