"Gone" is a fascinating series, but I think I'm just about ready for it to finish. By that I don't mean that the individual books are getting boring, but that it's starting to seem like a never-ending story, and while I know that Michael Grant has only planned two more books in the series, I still worry that it'll be left with either an open or an unsatisfying ending. The advantage of knowing there are still two more books to go is that I no longer expected any real resolution in "Plague", so I was able to enjoy it despite that. And it did have some very interesting developments - the return of Caine, the discovery of Toto and the fate of Little Pete. I'm getting really annoyed with Drake though. There's no depth to him, nor any character development. He's just evil for the sake of being evil, and that's not interesting to read about. Hopefully, between the two of them, Caine and Sam will be able to take care of him.
