Monster is the seventh book in the Gone series. It is set four years after the events of Light.


It's been four years since the FAYZ. The events that happened inside that dome are forever seared into the public consciousness. A constant reminder of the existence of the supernatural. Of humanity's capacity for both heroism and atrocity. There have been books about it, even a TV series inspired by what is officially called the "Perdido Beach Anomaly". Time has passed, and the survivors are simply trying to move on with their lives.

However, the meteor which crashed into Perdido Beach nineteen years ago was the just the first of many. There are more coming. Governments will do their best to intercept them, prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. But inevitably, there will be some that slip through the cracks. The FAYZ was just a preview. Mutations and powers, heroes and villains, Dark Watchers with sinister intentions. It's all happening again. But this time, it'll be a battle for the fate of more than just a couple hundred kids. This time, the battleground will be the entire planet.

US Goodreads description

In the stunning follow-up to the globally bestselling Gone series, Michael Grant continues the story of the teens who morph into superheroes—and supermonsters—when they ingest an alien virus.

Four years after the events of the FAYZ, new meteorites are hitting Earth, and the whole world is exposed to a strange alien virus that gives humans unique superpowers.

As some teens become heroes and others become dangerously out of control with their new powers, the world will become more terrifying than the FAYZ—and only a monstrous battle between good and evil can save them.[1]
