Hunger (Gone, #2)
It’s been three months since everyone under the age of fifteen became trapped in the bubble known as the FAYZ.

Three months since all the adults disappeared. GONE.

Food ran out weeks ago. Everyone is starving, but no one wants to figure out a solution. And each day, more and more kids are evolving, developing supernatural abilities that set them apart from the kids without powers. Tension rises and chaos is descending upon the town. It’s the normal kids against the mutants. Each kid is out for himself, and even the good ones turn murderous.

But a larger problem looms. The Darkness, a sinister creature that has lived buried deep in the hills, begins calling to some of the teens in the FAYZ. Calling to them, guiding them, manipulating them.

The Darkness has awakened. And it is hungry.

Yay! I absolutely love this series. What I love about this book is that it has many characters with their own POV and I enjoy that as I always want to know how they feel. I finish this book in just one day and I keep thinking about it even after long finish reading it.

In the first book we know that people over the age of 15 will vanish and we also know that Sam and Caine (fraternal twins) survive the “step-over”. No one for sure know where the “stop-over” will led to but no one dares to find out anyway. In this book they managed to survive by far but now they are facing another crisis-hunger. Food is running out and kids are developing power everytime. Kids are choosing sides between freaks and normal and at the other side of the town, Caine is forming a plan for a takeover after recovering from his own nightmare.

Sam on the other hand is handling many childish problems everyday. Though everyone respect and look up to him as a leader, but sometimes they do too don’t cooperate. Gangs broke out, more people got killed, food become rare and it doesn’t help that their food source is being guard by zeeks!
Though Sam is being so moody and irrational sometimes but who can blame him? It’s hard enough that he have to be a father over 300 plus kids, he also need to think about the threat from his brother, Caine.

It’s quite sad actually to see Sam and Caine fighting and nearly get killed when they never even meet and act like brothers before. They never got the chance to know each other. When they first met they are already fighting. There’s the part in this book that for a moment Sam and Caine are working together nd they are jut fine! I was really hoping they would become brother again but nah..that doesn’t happen.

Overall, I’m falling in love with this book! Not falling but already are in love with this series! There’s much more to know about the dissapearance of adult and more pot hole to be covered! I’m so gonna run to the next book after finishing this.
