The Island – C.L. Taylor ★★★★★

Blurb; Welcome to The Island.

Where your worst fears are about to come true…

It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.

But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.

Because someone on the island knows each of the group’s worst fears. And one by one, they’re becoming a reality.

Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.

Who will make it off the island alive?

My Review; I was lucky enough to be sent an early copy of this amazing book as I am one of Cally’s VIP readers. I am a huge fan of all her books and the wait between each one gets longer and longer due to me reading them in a couple of days… but they are always worth the wait! Another brilliant read I devoured. She hasn’t disappointed me yet. The cover is also gorgeous and eye catching.

This is a young adult, thriller set on a remote island. Six teenage friends are off to enjoy a seven day survival on a remote island but things soon start to turn scary, freaky and deadly. Who can trust who? Will they survive? Will they all leave the island? They’re a typical group of friends each with their own personal problems.

The story is told through each of the characters over the seven days and it works. It’s a tense, thrilling, gripping, fast paced, page turner of a read. I really enjoyed it and didn’t figure out the plot either which is always a bonus. This is a perfect YA thriller. One to pre order, keep an eye out for. It’s due January 2021 and I’m really excited about it.

Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me and a strong contender for my top twenty reads of the year. Brilliantly written. Perfection. Not got a bad thing to say…
