For the past six years, six books, three thousand pages, from Gone all the way to Light, that is exactly what we, the readers, did. For me it definitely was the characters, their struggles and triumphs, their fears and doubts, their beginnings and ends, that made me keep returning. After reading the conclusion, the finale, the endgame, it was sad to say goodbye. So thank you Michael Grant. For a story and message s that will linger, forever, deep within, and whenever I look upon my shelf and see those books I will remember what they hold: To not be afraid.
To be someone that chooses wisely, someone who uses their power — whatever that power may be — for good in changing and making the world a much better place to live in. Michael Grant understands his readers, the modern teenager, and enhances his stories with this understanding. After all, we need to battle through darkness to discover a world of light.
There was a lot of horror and pain, torment and loss in Light — all of that belongs to be in the book, rightfully, dutifully. We have that right if we choose to accept it. There are other times when we are far beyond being given the right to choose, clouded too heavily in darkness.
That the choice, if there ever was one, was made without us even knowing, subconsciously, predetermined. This was the case with Drake. He was predetermined to take on a dark role within the FAYZ, and there really was no change in him since the first book other than physically and in his thirst for more power. Read on for more spoilery stuff, you know, to do with Light. You think you can do better? It has to be some sickness, some syndrome, right?
Put a label on it and everything will be better. Such joy realising that all that power is yours, and all the fear and pain is right there, in your victim. You know the word for it. Come on, say it. Draked laughed, threw up his hand wide, and nodded his head. You know that, too. It was in you. I saw it in your eyes as you looked down in that cooler. We all want to have someone powerless beneath us while we stand over them. We all want that. Because the alternative is to look at ourselves in the mirror and know that we are capable of dark and terrible things. And the joys they bring. Merwin said that he would pull the trigger again on a helpless Vietnamese prisoner if it needed to be done again because he took pleasure in the revenge.
Drake has exactly the same principles. And throughout Light we see Drake consistently trying to get revenge on those that have annoyed him, tried to kill him, witnessing his psychopathic tendencies and the pleasure he gets out of what he does. Where one fails, another succeeds. Drake was always one of the bad guys since the beginning; he had no intention to do good whatsoever. Then you have Caine who although was seen as a bad guy for most of the series, he never truly was depending on how you decide to see him. We understood Caine and why he has always had the urge to control, to be on the top.
He never really did anything as evil as what Drake did. But he still progressed and changed slowly as the series progressed. It is in Light where Caine truly shines. Fear forced Caine into a vulnerable state after what Penny did, but he still had his dignity and the objective to rise above everyone despite being stripped of the control he worked so hard to get.
Light is where he learns that he was doing it wrong all along, and decides to atone for everything he has done in the FAYZ. Why do you want me to say it? Redemption not only within the people around him, from a bully to a near hero, but redemption in himself for overcoming his excessive alcohol drinking and addiction.
His transformation internally reflects in his transformation externally from back in Gone, from when he turned into some being composed of rocks and stone and gravel. He went from being in a weak state to someone strong, a rock for other people if I may say. Orc deserved his ending. But did Caine deserve his? Astrid smiled at him. How strange he felt. Quite a few moments in Light the characters think about life directly after and well beyond the FAYZ. Would any of them be charged with murder, sent to prison? Would any of them see each other again?
That all they have gone through will mean nothing in the eyes of the people on the outside, that it was all just a game and they can all just go home and live happy and normal lives. What rights do teens really have in the real world, where their fantasies are almost non-existent? Where what they had in the FAYZ they would not have in the outside.
What reward will they really get for surviving the FAYZ? Was the FAYZ perfect after all? That even within a bleak and disastrous world such as the FAYZ there was still happiness and comfort to revel in. Early on in the book, at page 12 of the uncorrected proof at least , has Astrid thinking about her relationship with Sam and what it means for them in the future.
The very idea that she should be happy was absurd. It was almost a crime. Things were desperate, but then they had been for a long time. Desperate had long since became the new normal. If the barrier really did come down… if this really was the endgame… They were fifteen. Out there, out in the world, they had no legal right to be together. But none of that would mean anything in the eyes of the law. Her parents, or his mother, could snap their fingers and break what Sam and Astrid had built. It was not the first time Astrid had had the thought that maybe liberation from the FAYZ would be no such thing.
Each book has had their various villains — or not quite villains, just confused individuals. In Light he is now known as Gaia, a child growing with speed as every day goes by, becoming more powerful. Gaia possesses the abilities of those who are still alive in the FAYZ. So when she kills one she loses their power. It destroys things and kills people, but humans love it. Is it because they crave their own destruction, Sam? I want to understand your kind.
I am going out into the wider world, and I must learn. But first things first. First, to escape this shell, this egg in which I have gestated, all eyes will be on the fire, all eyes blinded by the smoke, and when I walk out of here, out into your large world with its billions, no one will even see.
It reveals, but it also distracts and blinds. So many meanings and interpretations taken from one word. They not only meant their literal meanings but metaphorically, too. Each character had their defining moments to shine. And even by the time I reach the Aftermath chapters of Light the second time round, the lives of the characters will continue to prosper long after the final page, no matter how many times I return to this book, and this series. I may still add more onto this… just… because… I need this review to be perfect. A mega huge thanks to Jen at Hardie Grant Egmont for sending me an uncorrected proof to review and cry over.
I pestered her for months on end and I think she deserves some hugs of thanks. View all 12 comments. Apr 03, Carrie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Although, not to criticize, but come on. It's making me worried that it will have a cruddy, cliche happy ending, like the FAYZ wall comes down, and everyone's happy and it's all virtual reality and the dead kids aren't really dead.

So the next day I continued reading at school, and as I was reading, I thought "Ha, this isn't that bad after all, I don't even feel remotely upset", only to get half way through the book and find tears streaming down my cheeks and goosebumps on my arms, several times I had to stop reading because I seriously couldn't control my emotions, even now, writing this review, I haven't stopped crying. I sound really cheesy but many of you must understand how traumatised I am.
It's not sinking in, even as I'm crying I can't believe that they're over, I've become so used to waiting annually for each sequel to come out, and now I don't get that tradition next year. I loved these series and its characters. I feel like an era has ended. View all 9 comments. Dec 19, Brendan rated it it was amazing. Apr 04, Rachel Fisher rated it it was amazing.

She yearns to conquer her Nemesis, Little Pete, and then bend the entire world to her warped will. Perfect, perfect, perfect ending. I absolutely absorbed this book, and I knew I would. I've been on this ride with Mr. Grant for a while now and I have a lot invested in this story. Ironically, the "world" is a small space, but it's an entirely different universe, no different from Middle Earth in its need for world-building. I love the "truth" of being teenagers forced to face adult issues.
I love the "truth" of duality: You know why I think so? Let me break it into categories for you. And you thought I was going to be brief. Grant is brave because he's willing to muck about in religious waters that often scare authors, particularly ya authors. He has characters that had faith that lose it and others that gain it. He has characters that have no idea what they believe, but who feel the pull of ritual, the desire the make sense of it all.
But none of it is a simple, trite, easy answer. Still, people are terrified of this in ya. Bravo for showing a loving, mutual relationship in Sam and Astrid, as well. Grant is brave because he deals in all those real-life issues of race and prejudice. He's the "businessman" but he's African-American, and characters are wary of him in this role at first until they realize they're hungry.
And Edilio, often referenced as the "wetback" by the nastier or more ignorant characters. The way that Grant addresses those issues and turns them on their ear without sounding preachy is excellent and gives a lot of DEPTH to a story for and about teens that one would not associate with "superhero" kind of stuff. Grant is brave because he wasn't afraid to write it his way, with a kabillion shifting POVs, sometimes that last for only a few sentences at a time! Grant is brave because he's not afraid to take on a modern-day "Lord of the Flies" in a time when we've become increasingly uncomfortable with precocious youth.
In the end, that is what this story is about, I think: I never expected anything that Caine ever said to anyone, especially Diana, to make me cry. And it was perfect. And I never expected a kiss between Astrid and Sam to feel like the last gasp of a marathon when you feel the tape snap across your chest, but it did. I practically pumped my fist in the air! Ok, I did pump my fist in the air. And I never expected to be so moved, so entertained, and so enthralled by such an odd, personal, and utterly genre-breaking story as the Gone Series.
May I be so fortunate as to write something that makes people say the same. View all 3 comments. Jul 22, Linna marked it as to-read. Sep 27, Ricky rated it it was amazing Shelves: More than a year ago, Perdido Beach, CA, was cut off from the world by an impenetrable force field twenty miles in diameter. Some of the kids developed powers. All sorts of powers. More than eight months ago, the food started to run out, and the Darkness in the wilderness began to grow.
More than five months ago, the Darkness tried to convince the kids of the FAYZ to kill themselves in order to make it through to the other side. More than four months ago, two different plagues, a freakishly mutated flu and an even more freakishly mutated variety of insectoid parasiste. So much body horror. Once upon a time, not so long ago, the FAYZ wall started to go dark, and the Darkness tried once again to work its evil on the land around it, by trying once again to insert itself into a helpless host body. Then the wall turned transparent as glass - just in time for the whole world to see the unthinkable.
School Bus Sam himself. As promised, Grant wrote a story so dark he had to resist his editor's request to tone it down, to the satisfaction of his devoted readers. Now, the story will conclude They say it's always darkest before the But how can there possibly be a bright, light, even remotely happy ending to this wild series that has followed me from high school to college?
But it takes a very long time to get there. And yes, it's darker than dark and freakier than freaky. Especially when Gaia comes into play. Good God, she's scary. And it's a more than satisfying ending to the series. Short and sweet, if slightly bogged down by Ending Fatigue. But everything you could ask for and more. If you haven't started this series yet, do it now, and don't take six years to read very single book.
Do it in six days if you can. Trust me, you'll thank me later. Feb 20, Ayesha S. To me, it was just a punch in the face. All severe sentimentality aside, easier said than done btw this book, the whole series in fact, was bloody brilliant, quite literally. And the fact that the author uses all his characters as collateral damage to fulfil his story line? Jan 06, C. In fact, the book either ends up a roaring success or a roaring failure — not much middle ground. It blew me out of the water with sheer awesomeness and I might have throw the book across the room a few times while I sat on the bed and wept and screamed and despaired.
FEAR reeked of over-cooked lasagna. LIGHT was everything it needed to be and more. This book dragged such feelings as most books cannot touch. In typical Michael Grant style, there is a lot of fluff. Diving into the first chapters, I questioned when the plot would arise. How is this going to be dragged into a page book? It was gruesome and violent, a little extra gore then some of the precursor novels but the bugs eating people in PLAGUE kind of grossed me out maximum. Gaia is a pure little monster. The answer is a big fat: Gaia is awful and terrifying and psycho and creepy and chilling need more description?
Which is a roaring shame. The people I thought would die, lived ironic and the people who lived, I thought would die devastating. Please, pause and appreciate the trauma I am suffering through. The ending has a twist that shattered me. There are mixed feelings as the books range, but if I could list all the epic characters and say I loved them, I would. Some ticked me off what was the point of Sanjit again? And Sam and Caine?

When they went into the finale together — as a team — be still my beating heart. I feel like writing a memorial to them all. Their story is over and I feel traumatized and scarred by it. It tore out my heart and ate it. Sincerely A terribly scarred reader Aug 12, Thomas rated it it was amazing Shelves: If there's one series that captures my teenage years, it's this one. I picked up Gone five years ago at the age of 13 maybe because Sam was cute, not like I knew I was into guys at the time and five books later I've finished the series, now as an adult.

If you haven't read Light yet or the books preceding it, I'd recommend skipping this paragraph and catching up right now.
Otherwise, the central story line of the last installment in Michael Grant's epic series revolves around Gaia and her its? Every character joins in for the fight no matter his or her previous wounds or scars. As always, Grant's plot grabbed me from the get go.
The exposition of Light builds tension and suspense while the rest of the book brings it all out into the open with action scene after action scene. This must be my sixth time trying to describe Grant's storytelling ability, and it really hasn't changed that much. He captivates with every shot of light from Gaia or Sam's hands, every backstabbing piece of dialogue, and every little horrible detail that goes into the characters' deaths or near-fatal encounters.
Maybe more than you would expect, but if you're a pessimist, maybe less. Irrespective of their mortality characters reach their peak in Light , evaluating not only their actions but their religious beliefs, sexualities, abuses of power, family histories, etc. Grant has not only changed his characters from the somewhat flat archetypes they were at the very beginning to developed young adults with unique desires, he also incorporates a laudable amount of diversity.
He delves into the essence of his characters and pushes them to the finale, an impressive feat with such a wide ensemble. Of course this book - and this series as a whole - will not please everyone. The writing does not scream of sophistication even though it serves its purpose. Some of the philosophical implications of the characters' actions and the dystopian setting do not get that much attention due to the sheer size of the plot.
A few of the events near the ending occur almost too easily or without explanation. However, none of these qualms come even close to detracting from the overall fabulous quality of this series. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a dark, thrilling story with strong characters and consistent writing. View all 11 comments. May 12, Alexis marked it as to-read.

You will laugh, you will cry, you will gasp, your heart will wrench and break and then break again and then shatter and then put itself together and finally evaporate. Michael Grant is one of those authors, that a budding writer like myself, looks up to as a writing GOD. He is so awesome, he tied everything up, the characters are amazing, and he is one of the few that knows how a teenager talks like, and I'm gushing, and I don't care And it occurred to me, in the ending hours of the FAYZ; it occurred to me, as I was sneering at the outside worlds' ignorance of the FAYZ, that if this happened in the world we live in today, we would probably have the same reaction.
Don't say, no i wouldn't! What if we didn't have the inside scoop, we didn't know the situation, or what they were thinking, or what the consequences were, all we knew was what they did? And that was all we knew? Would we really be so kind? I don't think all of us would be.
I think one of the greatest messages of this book was just that, that there are shades between evil and good, and it's not always easy to pick. And it's never easy to decide to do something that general society considers immoral. We need to try and understand why people do things rather than just jumping to conclusions all the time.
We shouldn't be all holier-than thou, turn up your nose and assume shit. And really, we should understand that all we can do is try our best, do what we hope is right, and if it ends up not being right, we shouldn't judge them for it. Because we're not perfect. We're only human, after all. Oct 21, Elise TheBookishActress marked it as zzzzz. This isn't an actual review because I don't remember what happened in which books, even though I reread this series like eight times. I just want to reassure you all that I love the series to the end. I am so, so okay with this conclusion??
But she still gets a character arc and a happy ending. Bad characters in YA lit hardly ever get happy endings, and the fact that she did is amazing. All in all, this was definitely a satisfying conclusion. I'm actually pretty scared about the expansion book. Dec 07, Lisa marked it as to-read.
Before you tell me it's crazy, hear me out. Okay so in Gone the adults disappear like page 1 and in plague the sickness starts in what?
So I think Light will be entirely about outside life as Sam as wondered about in Plague. Plus, we can hear from Connie and other adults. We could get a whole new perspective.

I'm lucky that way, though the ending for those are close too. I understand that when you are a writer it is har NOTE: I get that and I am happy that Michael Grant did conclude pretty much everything. Complaints containing very minor spoilers: I really though you would not forget Michael Grant.
I had faith in you: Where are you, I thought you would have a bigger role You came back and then you just sort of left the story at the end. They mention at the end that someone saw her or was that a joke It was repulsive as always. Gotta love a grown man's arm getting ripped off. It grosses me out, but that is just the way this books are and I except that. I had my problems with Astrid in this series, but I kind of liked her in this one.
There were a lot of sad deaths, but the worst for me was Orc. At least Dekka lived, I love her. Everything wrapped up nicely and there was much, much action. It was smart of him, it added a nice depressing and dramatic feeling after everything. The acknowledgements at the end were well done.
So, even though it was not perfect, it was a good ending. It will be interesting to go back and read them again some day knowing what happens. I am very sad to let it go Aug 19, Sigh. Dead and buried in the town plaza. Dead and floating in the lake or its shores. He and his sister both have their share of romance. The actions scenes are probably one of the most exciting part on this novel aside from the protagonist's "surprises".
Though some parts get a little confusing due to the heavy and complex discussion on magic and its application, readers can still easily enjoy the flow of the story. Recently, an anime adaptation has been made based on this light novel. Suzuki, an adult programmer, suddenly noticed that he was thrown into another world wearing casual clothes at level 1. He gains a high level and many treasures after using a 3-time-use disposable magic spell, Meteor Shower, once.
Evil - Wikiquote
He meets three beast-kin girls, beautiful purple and black-haired sisters, and an eccentric blond-haired elf girl, along with various people during his trip. Although there are occasionally fights with demons and demon lords, this is a heartwarming fantasy story. The story primarily involves the use of game elements in a fantasy setting. The protagonist is very powerful. He manages to fight off a superior dragon and kill a god when he's at level 1. To top it off, he hides his ability and identity to a certain extent.
The romance is harem-style, though the protagonist himself only pursues one lady. Plot is somewhat repetitive, which makes it quite boring at times as the the character gains a new power or ability, fighting new monsters and enemies, and finally gets rewarded with prizes or a title. This novel is great for reading on fantasy and adventure lovers. A genius magician, to fight against his fate of dying a natural death from old age, grasps at the truth of magic to allow himself to reincarnate with a power he created.
The cycle of reincarnation is repeated multiple times and the magician is in his 31st reincarnation. He becomes a boy named Syril who lives in a village of elves. The village is ruled by humans, and the elves are treated as livestock. After turning 14 years old, Syril, who regained his past knowledge and experience, stands up to help a girl who is his childhood friend.
The story of the creation of an ideal country begins in that village, a place where all races can coexist. Elves, fox-girl, and various other heroines. This is a kingdom-building type of novel. The protagonist is definitely overpowered since he has been reincarnated several times and gained various abilities in the process. These abilities make him the ultimate overpowered character in the novel.
The plot is well built, and the story is very fast-paced. Action scenes are frequent since resistance against the protagonist is to be expected. The romance aspect is tan-tan-dan-dan: Anyways, it's a good novel ehem Oh no, the MC is accidentally killed by a god! Due to this unfortunate error, the MC starts a second life in a parallel world. The god revives his body and he is allowed to take and use his smartphone. He comes across various other characters while also joining up with important comrades.
He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and he travels around the world casually with a power that matches the new world's god. The story starts out good with the protagonist getting two companions yep, it's exactly what you're thinking. The protagonist's OPness does not really focus on having a smartphone, but instead on being an "otherworlder" doesn't change the fact he's OP.
The plot revolves around the MC getting involved in different conflicts, making a pact with a powerful beast, and defeating a king. The action scenes are well balanced, but the romance seems to be too vague. Reading a few chapters of the novel feels great, but later chapters become dull.
My pet, assets, and territory within the game have been transferred into a world similar to the game. While playing, I was in at a higher level than my followers who were stronger than me. The demons and beasts of this world, and even demi-humans, start following me too. Before even realizing it, I have established a huge empire. Additionally, the appearance of mysterious enemies causes me endless trouble. The mixture of comedy especially with the protagonist as a boy inside a girl's body and action works well.
There are also extra chapters where the story is from the protagonist's subordinate's perspective. Three years ago, in the land of Reinbulk, in the Kindom of Leezalion, a legendary hero was summoned. He succeeded in repelling the Demon King. Now, five students are summoned back into Reinbulk by the Kingdom of Luxeria to fight against the Demon King and the demon army. Unlike the other heroes, Yashiro Yuu has no magical affinity and the Luxeria Kingdom has no intention on acknowledging his existence or returning him to his world. However, Yuu is actually the previous Hero who fought the Demon King originally.
Moreover, he is perplexed by the situation since he knows the Demon King has not returned since he sealed him. If the seal was ever broken, he would be automatically summoned instead of summoned by members of Luxeria. He decides to become an adventurer. The protagonist is definitely strong, but he's also a pervert. Plus, no one knows that the main character was the hero who sealed the Demon King.
As he lays dying, bleeding on the ground, he hears a voice. This voice is strange and attempts to help with his dying regret being a virgin by giving him the [Great Sage] unique skill! Is he being made fun of!?! The protagonist might be a slime, but he has a powerful skill that makes him the strongest being. Additionally, his companions, who evolve with him, are all strong. Before I understood what was happening, I had reincarnated into another world. I kept sleeping, and at some point I became a Demon Lord, even though I never wished for it. But as far as not having to work, this world is the best.
It must be true that good things happen to good people. The flavor of Sloth is as sweet as honey. Glory, diligence, virtue, honor; I have no interest in anything like that. The Lazy king is… none other than me. The main character is definitely the strongest and the most lazy person alive. He might be lazy but he is super strong, especially when knows he'll get a new title. Some parts of this book are pretty boring, but it can't be helped since the protagonist would be useless if the whole story was from his perspective.
Ryouma Takuma, a 39 year old man with hidden past, finds himself in a strange white room. The gods tell him that he has died and they are sending his soul to a different world, a world where magic exists. Living alone for 3 years, his gamer soul loses common sense and starts doing crazy things. This is one of the best novels I've read in a while. There's no need to describe the protagonist's OP abilities; he can casually talk to the gods and goddesses in their realms and even have their blessings. What makes the story fascinating is that the protagonist actually collects different kinds slimes as his familiars.
He even manages to build a business at a young age, using slimes as the concept. But after defeating the last boss and freeing everyone, he is swallowed up by a strange light and finds himself inside the game world years in the future and unable to leave. Though the setting is typical getting trapped inside a game the story is still very interesting. The protagonist is a master blacksmith and also known to be very popular since he is one of the famous people who was thought to have disappeared.
His race also makes his more important. With the progression of his Chuuni Disease, Shioda Tetsuya is shunned by his family, and dies in despair, a thirty-three-year-old jobless virgin. He vows that if he is born again, he will stay away from delusions and live life seriously. Fortunately, he reincarnates in another world as a girl named Tilea, and lives a happy life with her kind parents and adorable little sister, but….
Her beloved sister has begun talking about how she is actually one of the Six Demon Generals, serving directly under Demon King Zorg, a descendant of the Three Great Demons. The situation looks bad. Tilea has to do something before this Chuuni Disease gets any worse! This is certainly one of the funniest novels I've read. The main character is very powerful, though she never realizes it until now, I guess. She could even kill a demon general with one punch or a simple kick.
Her sister is one of the demon generals who became her follower and the trusted butler first thought to be jobless. That was the plan, but for some reason the player character did not log out some time after the server was closed, and NPCs start to become sentient. A normal boy who loves gaming in the real world seems to have been transported into an alternate world along with his guild, becoming the strongest mage with the appearance of a skeleton, Momonga.
Since the main protagonist is a powerful mage-villain, it's a refreshing story. He even owns a tomb that is more majestic than a castle and has strong servants that guard the area as well as to protect him. That ends the list for now.

Light Novels With an Insanely Powerful Protagonist
I love how the plot goes and the MC, though I honestly can't deny that some parts are really repetitive. I'll try to take a peek at a few chapters. Did you read i reincarnated as a magic academy and everyone else is a returne. Both are funny and have op characters. I understand your point. However, my rating on both of the novels is purely from my experience on reading. But I'm not saying 'Overlord' is bad or anything; it is indeed a great novel to read. My point is, the rating mainly reflects my experience and preference on the novels.
Each of us is entitled to have their own experience and preference especially on what novel to read. The story uses elements that goes beyond personal power to move things along. Everything revolves around how powerful the MC is and how he is restraining himself and hiding his power. Being basically a God while taking quest to subjugate goblins is not fun to read. Nor is reading a few chapters about him searching for weeds to get a few coppers.
Well, it's a light novel where the story revolves mostly around the main character being overpowered all the time. So I kind of understand what you mean.
