Good story

This idea of adults disappearing is a bit of a fad but this book was well written with many diverse characters.


This was a wonderful book, very unique concept. I personally love dystopian, so this was interesting to me!


This book was so intense I couldn't stop reading it! Can't wait to read hunger!!!

For Dystopian Fans Only

If you like 'creepy' stories I think this book is for you. Personally, being a Sci-fi and fantasy reader, I think this series is great. Good story line and writing.


this book didn't really draw me in


Great book, I fell in love with it, i rushed to get the next books, but had to wait until hunger game out ughh T_T still it was worth it. I definitely recommend it


Michael Grant has made a wonderful story full of adventure and magic.
