Plague by Michael Grant
After all that’s happened so far in the Fazy, you’d think whatever God exists, would give them a brake from all the hardship they’ve been through? It would seem not, after all there is no God in the Fazy, there’s, it seems, God’s. When I say this I don’t just mean it in metaphoric terms, I mean it in literal as well. Sam and Caine the two former and current ‘power giants’ of the Fazy are dwarfed by the businessman, Albert’s enterprise, Alberco. But even the three of biggest powerhouses are like match sticks in comparison to the God’s that fight to win the game, but who cares anyway, after all it’s only a game? Isn’t it?
The Darkness, it seems, does not give up easily and still relentlessly strives to eliminate the remains of the meagre population of Perdido Beach, by less than humane means, but after all The Darkness is an Alien so why would it care anyway? Plague is not the least of the kids worries as Drake still very much alive, still walks among the living and more sinister threats may lie in wait on the horizon, but everyone’s question still remain’s subconsciously, how long will it be before there isn’t a horizon anymore? All they do know though is, water is running short and unfortunately peace doesn’t last forever.
Teen Rating: In a battle of God’s and ‘men’… who am I kidding, ‘kids’, fight for their very survival, even in a living hell. But what can they do, but watch, when forces they can not fight literally eat them alive. 4/5 14+
