Format: Advance Digital Review Copy
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK Childrens
Genres: Horror, Teens, YA
Synopsis/Blurb (taken from NetGalley):
“One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens all played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.
But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.
Instead, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge who wants to finally unravel the truth about what actually happened that deadly night, one year ago.
Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?”
My Thoughts & Review
After reading the synopsis on this book on NetGalley I convinced myself that I would love it, so went and requested it, also the cover looks really nice. The book started well and pulled me in but as I read on the plot started to deflate a bit.
The first five or six chapters sets the scene for the book, as well as introducing each of the main characters. The first few chapters individually introduce each of the characters. I thought this was really good as we get to know more about the characters before the main plot starts, and we also get to learn how they link together.
I found the characters interesting but they seemed to be a little predictable at times. There were some interesting twists but again these were a little predictable too. I actually managed to work out the ending of this book.
Overall an enjoyable YA Horror but I personally feel it could have been a little better. I recommend this book to YA Horror lovers as I think you will enjoy this one much more.
I would also like to thank NetGalley and Simon and Schuster UK Children’s for a copy of my eARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.
