This series is getting weaker. After really enjoying the first two in the series, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the third installment. But it just didn't add anything to the series, it was still well-written but I felt like the author was merely prolonging the story and not really moving the plot along. Maybe it's the old: longer series = more money, but that's just... crap.

Gaby The first two were better...

Gutts Warutare It was impossible for you to know this at the time, but this book actually serves to set up several plot points vital to the rest of the series. It also transitions into some of the crazy shit that goes down in the second half of the series and introduces many lasting concepts and characters. That being said, I can see (with the exception of the ending) how an why one could find this installment less ENJOYABLE than the previous two.

Arpit Ranasaria idk about you, but of the first 3, Lies is my favorite

Maddi Lies was not crap. the plot line was moving couldn't you see that. I think you should read it again as there are many things that are shown to us in this book in the series. There is a way out of the FAYZ, Everyone on the outside of the FAYZ is trying to get in. Little Pete might be the only way to end the FAYZ as shown when he goes crazy near the wall and it disappears long enough for people to realise that the FAYZ was a very known problem. And that the darkness isnt dead and Caine found food is gaining strength. And you are saying that this book wasnt moving the plot along but it was actually setting up the plot line for the rest of the series .
