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.

These books just keep getting better and better. There are several problems going on in this books that have to be dealt with. The food, the darkness, kids fighting, and new mutations. Grant does a wonderful job of bringing out the importance and urgency of which these issues need to be resolved.

Each character brings there own point of view into the story. I love how we have the main characters, but we also get to hear from the other kids in the FAYZ. They all have different problems and solutions.

This book has me brainstorming all different possiblities. Hunger kept me guessing and at the edge of my seat. There is no way that anyone would be able to see anything coming. Each twist and turn is welcomed and appreciated.

I absolutley can not wait for the next book to come out because this series brings my thoughts to life. I can't help but love a book that's so creative and different that I feel awed.
