Riveting, brilliantly imagined and passionate, THE DISAPPEARANCES, the compelling sequel to THE KILLABLES, will appeal to everyone who loved the powerful and gripping storytelling of THE HUNGER GAMES. They walked in silence onto the raised path that led to the East Gate. The closer they got, the louder the buzzing was. As they approached the gate it was almost unbearable. There was a stench in the air that made it hard to breathe, a stench that made the hair on the back of Lucas' neck stand up on end. Whatever had brought the flies here wasn't good. It's been a year since Evie and Raffy escaped the controlling regime of the City, leaving Lucas behind to rebuild the ruins of the place they once called home. And Lucas knew that once he said goodbye, Evie would be lost to him forever...But the City soon finds itself plagued by another terrifying threat: the Disappearances: teenagers who have gone missing from within the City walls, apparently vanishing into thin air. With the City at stake, Lucas has no choice but to call on his old friends - even if seeing them together is more than he can bear.
Part two in a gripping dystopian trilogy for fans of The Hunger Games.
Praise for THE KILLABLES -- : Chillingly well-imagined. -- Daily Mail Malley creates a harrowing dystopian world that keeps you turning the pages. -- We Love This Book I love Gemma Malley ... Somehow, she manages to produce books that are at once intellectual, challenging, sophisticated, exciting, romantic and accessible. -- Thebookbag.co.uk At times I felt I couldn't put this down, there were times where the action was riveting and others I just wanted to read on to find out the truth about the system ... Malley has done an excellent job and it is well worth a read. -- Passionfornovels.co.uk A great deal of thought and planning has clearly gone into the world building. I believed it, could see it happening and found it disturbing and fascinating at the same time ... -- Myfavouritebooks.blogspot.co.uk The Disappearances is vintage Malley. Its clear, elegant, flowing prose is easy to read and deceptively intelligent. The narrative concentrates equally on its wider themes - freedom, control, self-expression - and on its characters...I defy you to find anything wrong with The Disappearances. It's wonderful stuff. Don't miss it. -- www.thebookbag.co.uk
