Review: Plague by Michael Grant

Review: Plague by Michael Grant

To be honest, I feel that this series may have peaked with “Lies.” While “Plague” is an excellent follow-up, it feels more like a maintainer than an innovator, keeping the quality of the story steady instead of enhancing it. Rather than significantly improving upon the aspects of its predecessors, as the last two books have done, this installment keeps the status quo.
