MY GOODREADS RATING 4/5 STARS

(Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources, I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:

What started out as a night of celebration for Aimee soon turned into a nightmare. Snatched by cruel, sadistic monsters – the worst creatures mankind has ever produced – she’s thrown into a metal container, among other victims too frightened to make a single sound.

The game-keepers force everyone to play. They deliver torment and pain in equal measure. Every hunter has their own agenda and reasons to maim and torture.

Detective Johnson is one step away from catching the killers. Wrestling with his instincts as a father to serve justice his own way, this is no ordinary case for him. Can he stop the vile sadists before they damage more young girls, as well as his own daughter?

Aimee’s ordeal within the compound brings her to the conclusion that she’s no ordinary girl. But can she hang onto her sanity long enough to escape? And will she find a different way to play?

This crime thriller will keep you riveted. It’s no ordinary story.

Please note: contains graphic content.     

MY THOUGHTS:

Starts off immediately with graphic content. Quite disturbing scenes that contain rape and torture that were definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone with a weak stomach. It read how I would expect the scariest of horror movie would play out. I felt like I couldn’t stop at the end of each chapter. I had to continue reading since each chapter ended on a cliff hanger. I found the book completely unpredictable. Kept me wanting to know how everything was going to turn out.

The author gave excellent character description. There are maybe two main character type people throughout the book and I felt like I knew them on a very personal level. It was awesome to see how each character progressed throughout the book.

Overall I would recommend this book to people who enjoy horror movies and books with very graphic scenes. If you enjoy highly unpredictable books with very different story lines this book would be for you. I would not recommend this if you have a weak stomach or can’t handle gory scenes. I personally enjoyed the book because I felt like I was watching a horror movie the whole time.

  1. I don’t know if I would be able to deal with the graphic content with my already overactive imagination but you seem to always make me want to read books that I wouldn’t read normally solely on your review .

  3. I love a good horror movie myself but lately I have not felt very scared by them. Maybe I should try a book, like this, that has a little fear factor and gore! Will defiantly make a change from just watching a quick gore fest movie.
