*BLOG TOUR* Codename Firefly – C.J. Daugherty ★★★★

Blurb; Hunters are hunting the daughter of the Prime Minister… How long will she hide before it’s time to fight back? Gray Langtry is on the run. As the only child of the British Prime Minister, Gray’s life has been in turmoil ever since her mother was chosen to lead the country. Both she and her mother are targets of a Russian assassination plot. And what’s worse, members of her mother’s own cabinet are involved. A team of bodyguards never leaves her side. The press attention is relentless. And then there are the death threats. Now, after an attempt on Gray’s life, she has been moved to an elite boarding school in the British countryside. Shielded by high walls and locked gates, Gray finally feels safe, but the plotters are still hunting, and soon they will find her. Gray’s personal bodyguard, Julia, and the school’s young headmistress are determined to protect her. They both know how dangerous things are. The assassins searching for Gray are highly trained. And when they arrive they will aim to kill. Dylan, a mysterious American student, seems to know more than he should – but he’s always there when Gray needs him. Can she trust him? Can she trust anyone? As winter closes in and darkness falls, Gray will have to think fast. The hunters are coming.

My Review; This was such a good read! Very unique. Gripping. Gray is in a boarding school which houses very special children from people who want to hurt them, kidnap them and the media wanting to capture them. Kids like Gray… The presidents daughter. But can the school handle these intruders? Is Grey safe? Is the security tight? They’ll soon find out…

An action packed, tense, gripping and fast paced read. A real page turner that I devoured. A perfect YA read. Loved most of the characters including Greys friends. This would make a brilliant film or TV series. I’d love to see more of Grey & her friends. A read I won’t forget for a long time. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Camp Death – Jim Ody ★★★★

Blurb: The place had a gruesome past that nobody wanted to talk about…

Camp Deathe is now a great place to spend the summer. Ritchie soon finds a group of outsiders like himself. Teenagers who ignore the organised activities, and bunk off in the old abandoned cabins deep in the woods. The cabins that have a history.

The campfire monster stories were meant to just scare them. Nobody expected them to come true. Then one of the teenagers disappears in the middle of the night.

Something is watching them. It hides in the woods and hunts at night.

Ritchie will have to uncover the secrets of the camp, and understand his own problems in order to survive.

My Review; I loved reading Jim Odys books in the past and this was no disappointment. What a brilliant, short horror… From the prologue I was intrigued and hooked.

This is so much more than just straight up horror it focuses on the teens, family, romance and friendships alongside the horror. Loved the whole thing. He made a very eerie setting. Parts had me holding my breathe and turning the pages for fun. Thrilling. Suspense filled. Tense. Creepy. Scary. Spooky. Dark. Heart pounding read. Another not to read alone at night without the lights on.

A camp I would never want to attend… Horror stories emerge about the camp from the past. Some altered… Some true. But what’s the true story here? Are they safe? Is this just a twisted game? Very spooky. The title says it all. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

Murder Thy Neighbour – James Patterson ★★★★★

Blurb; As seen on Discovery ID, these two true-crime thrillers follow a neighbours’ quarrel that turns violent and cyber-bullying that explodes in a double murder.

(with Andrew Bourelle)

Ann Hoover is a nice woman, but she’s come to hate her neighbour. Roy Kirk moved in next door with plans to renovate. But as the weeks go by, his DIY construction turns to shambles and Roy himself becomes sullen and hostile. When Ann takes him to court, Roy’s retaliation will be shockingly gruesome.

(with Max DiLallo)

Jenelle Potter has always been better at connecting through social media than in person. With overprotective parents, she hasn’t had many options to meet people until she links up Billy. But her feelings for Billy are unreciprocated, causing Jenelle to start a virtual war – a war that enters the real world.

My Review; As you should all know by now I am a huge James Patterson fan. This did not disappointed. I absolutely loved it. This is two short stories in one book and both are TRUE stories. For me these being true stories makes them even more horrifying and scared. It’s scary what some people do.

Both were gripping, thrilling stories that had me on edge. But I preferred the first one more because that was just messed up who even does that? As usual the book contains short chapters and was an easy read but one I throughally enjoyed. One I can’t forget, those poor victims. The second story has a huge focus on social media and it reminds you to be careful online always, no matter what age you are.

A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. Spooky. Scary. Messed up. Dark. Death. Murder. TRUE CRIME.
