AudiobookSYNC Week 13 offers dark fantasies in which young people are pitted against the odds of survival. The sceneries may be fantastic, but there are real-world matters at their cores.
Gone by Michael Grant is the first title in the popular series. The characters are a band of kids who have awakened to a world in which everyone older than 14 has completely vanished. Power struggles ensue, with the added twist that some of the kids also happen to be imbued with magical powers.
Tania Unsworth’s The One Safe Place is a genre blend of mystery and fantasy. Devin, who has both a photographic memory and synesthesia, falls in with two other teens, one of whom lures them to a garden populated by confused young children who seem to be contained there by disturbingly cheerful guardians.
