Ten – Gretchen McNeil ★★★★

Blurb; It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie are looking forward to two days of boys, booze, and fun-filled luxury. But what starts out as fun turns twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine. And things only get worse from there.

With a storm raging outside, the teens are cut off from the outside world . . . so when a mysterious killer begins picking them off one by one, there’s no escape. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on one another, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

My Review; This one caught my eye over on Amazon and now I’ve ended up with most of the authors other books. Can’t beat finding a new author. The simple cover and the short blurb on the front caught my eye. This was brilliantly written a spooky, dark, deadly, twisted, clever and haunting young adult story.

I bloody loved it! I was dragged in. 10 teens on a remote island for a weekend full of parties where noone knows where they are… That was their first mistake noone knew they were there. The second mistake? Ever believing they were there for parties and fun. Straight from the first night wierd things and situations start to happen and from then you’re trapped. 10 soon becomes 9… 9 soon becomes 8… All while a massive storm is happening around them.

Who is doing this? Who is next? Will any of them survive? Seriously gripping, thrilling, tense an edge of your seat read. I don’t want to say much more about the story itself but its very clever, cunning and all planned down to a T. Crafty. The outcome I never saw…

Do you want to know what happened that weekend? Reckon you would survive? Reckon you will figure it out? Dive in and find out… I really enjoyed it. A well deserved four stars from me. I cannot wait to read the rest of thid authors books now if they’re as good as this. Highly recommend.
