Story: Everyone is starving. And half of them are evil. And people die horribly. And there's an evil monster under the ground. In other words, the world (or at least the small part of it that is FAYZ) is going to hell in a handbasket.
Gone, and the next books: Lies, Plague, Fear, and Light.
And besides that...I don't really know what else to say about it. It was great? I read it in a day? I've ordered the next one? Yeah, that's pretty much it.
