Reviews for Lies


Booklist Reviews 2010 February #2
Shortly after the world-changing events of Gone (2008) and Hunger (2009), the young residents of the FAYZ face ominous new threats, including a death-obsessed cult leader and the resurrection of a buried girl. And remember Drake the Whip Hand? Yeah, he might be back, too. 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. The vast array of characters will challenge newcomers; fans, though, will go bonkers. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Fall
In this sequel to Gone and Hunger, Sam seems to be the only mutant capable of moral integrity--or is he? Short, choppy sentences drive the very fast-moving plot of this near-future post-apocalyptic-meets-comic-book-video-game fantasy complete with graphic violence, death, and cannibalism. Multiple points of view add some confusion. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
