Publisher's Summary

The mind-blowing conclusion to the Monster trilogy and the final installment in the Gone series from science fiction and fantasy master Michael Grant is perfect for superhero and Stephen King fans alike.

After the fall of Perdido Beach dome, a new set of humans developed mutant powers from the rock infected with alien virus. They are the Rockborn Gang: Dekka, Shade, Cruz, Malik, Armo, and Francis. With their superpowers, they have defended the Earth from other rockborn who used their powers for evil, like Dillon Poe.

When another rock carrying the virus strikes New York, a new foe, Bob Markovic, rises with a horrifying and nearly unstoppable ability. Markovic’s unending ambition and lack of a moral compass made him unbearable before the virus. And that was before he was a swarm of plague-ridden insects, with the power and means to take over the city - and maybe the world.

As the Rockborn Gang try to defeat their latest villain, they will find themselves on morally gray grounds and have to make tough decisions if they want to save the world.

In this pulse-pounding finale to the saga more than 10 years in the making, Michael Grant delivers an unforgettable conclusion while asking: What does it take to be a hero?

The ending makes no sense

Even though the ending is terrible and ruins the entire series, still a better ending than rise of skywalker.

Great Book, Horrible Ending

I really loved this book and the two other additions of the Gone series, but the ending is terrible in my opinion!!! I cant believe it ended in such a pathetic way, and in such a way that it took away from the entire story universe as a whole. The ending will definately make me have a bad taste in my mouth now whenever I think about the series.

Glad To Have Some Closure

Alright. I've come back to edit my review, now that I've finished the book.
To be honest, I did not like the narrator. She did loosen up a little bit halfway through the book, but all in all, the emotion just wasn't there. She sounded robotic a lot of the time and I had a hard time differentiating characters.

As for the book itself, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the "Gone" series. And I even liked the first two of this last trilogy. However, I don't feel like enough was done with this. It was a little bit all over the place. But Michael Grant has a way with words and it was still worth the read.
I'm glad to have been able to finish this and get some closure. I'm going to back to listen to the first "Gone" book since it's been years. I'm excited to start the journey all over again.
