    1. Gemma Malley Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Disappearances book, this is one of the most wanted Gemma Malley author readers around the world.

    2. Actually this book is so much BETTER than the first one. Better plot and finally some character development.Oh did i've told you that this book reminds me of sereveral others?like1984: THE BIG BROTHER there is a character called Brother who is in charge of the city. he knows EVERYTHING that his people do. just like that idea of the Big Brother in 1984. Not only. Now appears this one that jezzzzz you'll see. his name is ThomasBrave new world: utopic society that makes all people become passive pe [...]

    3. The Disappearances is the second in The Killables Trilogy by Gemma Malley, also the author of The Declaration Trilogy. (What is it with Gemma Malley and making her titles The Something? The Killables, The Resistance, The Legacy, The Returners ect.) In The Disappearances we follow the Evie, Raffy and Lucas a year after The System has been shut down. All should be well, but in The City people are disappearing and no one knows why.I really liked this book. The different POVs were woven together as [...]

    4. It’s been about a year since the end of The Killables when Evie, Raffy, Lucas, Linus, and the crew all dismantled the System that tracked the City’s citizens, but trouble is still brewing. Evie and Raffy have found a settlement that seems like it could become home, but their relationship is strained because of Raffy’s controlling jealousy. Linus, living like a hermit in a cave hidden away from the City, is looking into some strange events on the coast. Lucas is poised as the leader of the [...]

    5. Gemma Malley never ceases to amaze me. She looks at power and leadership from different perspectives that really make me question how and why our society works in the way in which it does. The end of The Killables showed me how easily we fall into the trap of assumption. We assume that something is the way that it is (in reality as well as in fiction) because we are told that it is so. We assume that we know about life because of the little tufts of information we are told and taught. I was blow [...]

    6. I'm sorry I just did no enjoy this book at all. I found the whole plot boring and characters unbearable! And Raffy he was so contolling of Evie and he was in the first book."Just wait till everybody sees once and for all that your mine"RUN EVIE RUN Really the only Character I liked was Lucas. So overall I did not like this book one bit. I think one of the main issues with this book is that it had such potentiality to be a great story but sadly he Characters did not seem real enough and were just [...]

    7. I don't really know what to say about this book. this authour has the mist intresting ideas just when you think she is doing the same old dystopian novel. boom wrong.

    8. I'm glad I didn't pay for it but I think the book is underrated still. However, the story seems to resemble Divergent the movie too much.

    9. This is the sequel to Gemma Malley's The Killables which I read recently. It consists of the same characters as before, such as Raffy, Linus, Lucas, Evie, the Brother, and also some extra characters. It, obviously, takes place after the System has been shut down - this having caused some issues, such as the Disappearances.This is written in a rather different way to the previous book, in that it is told from different viewpoints and even during different time periods. The reader must piece toget [...]

    10. Oh, God. This book changed me. First of all, I love all of Gemma Malley's previous works, I really liked The Killables, but not as much as The Declaration. When I did finish The Killables, I was left think 'How the hell will she top that?!' Well, she topped it by like, a million.I LOVED IT.First of all, I completely lost all respect I ever had for Raffy. I mean,I liked him in the first book, but I realised in The Disappearences that he's so much darker underneath all that rebellious-prince-charm [...]

    11. I liked this book better than the first book- it had better plots and twists than the first one and the pacing of the story was quite good too. Kowever all the main three characters in this book kept disappointing me- Evie for being so meek and confused, she doesn't even do anything important in this book, not for once. Lucas, the only character I liked in book 1 disappointed me when he ran from the city without dealing the disappearances like a true leader. I also didn't like how they got toget [...]

    12. I was thoroughly disappointed by this book. I thought the first book was pretty decent, but upon reading this one well, I couldn't even finish it. I didn't even get to the halfway point. I tried to persevere, but I just found the story dull and half-hearted. I don't know if it's just that I'm growing out of YA or what, but this book, or at least the first 150-odd pages, was just bad. It was cheesy, there was cringe-worthy characterisation; just overall unpleasant to read. I particularly disliked [...]

    13. There's so much I love about this book that I don't know where to begin to explain it. What started as something that seemed quite straightforward in book one morphed into one of the most intricately brilliant and intriguing plots I've read in a long time. Gemma Malley never fails to create worlds that immerse me wholly and completely and with this series, she's done it again. The two storylines running side by side had me hooked throughout and drove me to distraction at times! I desperately wan [...]

    14. I liked The Disappearances, but it wasn't as good as The Killables. While the ending of the first book felt rushed, I didn't really like where the second book took us. I think it's a shame that we don't see much of the City in this bookI also didn't like the relationship between Evie and Raffy. I felt like he was way too controlling and too jealous. And I hated the love triangle.The ending contains a very exciting cliff hanger, so I'm sure I'll read the last installment in this series. Hopefully [...]

    15. The second book in a series is quite often an easier read than book one, because you know the characters and their situation. On the other hand, if you read a lot, or it was a long time since you read book one, you can spend time trying to recall how a certain character fitted into the scheme of things. With this book I fell into the second category, but that's is not to say that didn't enjoy the plot as it unfolded. I found I enjoyed Gemma Malley's thoughts expressed through Benjamin (page 341) [...]

    16. Second book to one of my favourite trilogies. I didn't realise that the idea Gemma Malley initially started the book with was much bigger than what it seemed.The way everything built up was so unexpected so I simply fell in love with how Malley writes. I didn't think it could get better than the first book The Killables but looks like I was wrong.The little love triangle between Lucas, Evie and Raffy definitely appeals to a 16 year old like me so I'm just can't wait for my local library to final [...]

    17. Wow. This installment was even better than the first. We got a lot of progress with Evie and Lucas as well us understanding Linus a bit more. Our main characters definitely developed alot more with the exception of oned yes I am speaking of you Raffi. The plot also got a bit more complex where we discovered that there is whole lot more to the system and the nemesis of our characters-Thomas. He has created an entire world which our characters have not even began to contemplate and which we find o [...]

    18. Great book :) I really liked it. But for me to much of repeating of the inner monologes of Raffy and Evie Book could be much quicker without it! But the ending was so unexpected and so twisted that I was really amazed :P Without the end like it was the book would have gotten 3 stars from me. The book can be little confusing and not-making-sense in some parts - There are going separate lines in the book, but end clears it all and story is saved :DWaiting for the 3rd book to read :D

    19. Felt as though this book didn't really get going until about halfway through - however, after that, it was non stop. Got a little confused with all the charcaters but the change in fonts helpedis book left on a note of not knowing where it will go and who will survive or not which means I'll definately read the next one

    20. I was disappointed in the second book. Was very jumbled didn't hold my interest and their was no need when the book kept going back in the past to use foul language very disappointed. Skipped over those sections. Hope the third book is better or I won't finish it

    21. Couldn't put it down. Gripping, heart in the mouth stuff. Had read The Killables a few weeks ago but picked the thread up very quickly with this sequel. Can't wait for the next and final installment.

    22. God I hated the parts where Devil was the focalizer, I'm really happy they turned out how they turned out to be (as in being important for the story). Still I liked this one more than the previous one :p

    23. Typical middle book, not as good as the first but sets up the plot for the third, I think. Still a good read. Can't wait for the next.

    24. I was either too wrapped up in the story too see the twists coming or they were hidden well, either way absolutely brilliant :) book three is on order!!!!!
