First of all, before starting this review, I think I owe an apology to the library staff who, generously, hosted the Escape Room on August 14th. I had registered for this event, but hadn’t ended up going. I had to go to the hospital for a family emergency at the last minute, and had no time to un-register the class. I’m sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused.
So, on to the book: 🙂 This book was an awesome novel that has just the right amount of horror and murder! I think I’m emotionally drained… Oh, and be warned: This is the 4th book in the series: “The Naturals”. But nevertheless, I read this book without reading the first 3 books, so I guess you don’t really need to read them in order…I loved this book with all my guts! So, this book was about a girl named Cassie who joins the FBI Natural’s program. Her main goal is to find out what really happened to her mother- if she was murdered or not. And Cassie makes a discovery that is just what she suspected: her mother is alive-but she’s held captive somewhere secret. The people holding Cassie’s mother captive are much more powerful than anticipated. Cassie and her team start to little by little uncover the truth about the secret society that has been murdering innocent people-as it seems. But as the bodies pile up, Cassie’s team realize something-they’re not just following the hunter, but they’re becoming the hunted.
I wanted to take my time and savor each word, but like I always do, I whizzed right through. But my main reaction was: THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED BUT SO MUCH MORE! :)💖
I am, honestly, throughly afraid of horror murders, but I just couldn’t resist. This book’s protagonist, Kay, is a star soccer player and has a tight-knit group of friends. But the day when she and her friends find a girl’s body in the lake, Kay’s life is on the brink of self-destructing. She has carefully buried her past away, and the past is the past…right? The dead girl has left Kay a computer coded message…or, as one might say: a scavenger hunt. But Kay starts to realize something. The detectives are starting to suspect Kay more than anyone else. Kay only has a limited amount of time to find the murderer, or her life is at stake. 🙁
I recommend this book to people who are fans of: Pretty Little Liars, Dangerous Girls?Dangerous Boys, and murder mysteries in general! 🙂 So, this book was like a buy-every-copy-available-and-force-all-my-friends-to-read-it stage of awesome. Seriously. Although I didn’t really force anyone to read it. 😉
Breaker by Kat Ellis
It all starts with a notorious serial killer nicknamed, The Bonebreaker. Quite original. I know. But, things aren’t REALLY about this killer. This book is based on his son. Oh and:
¡EXTREMELY POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!
Okay. Now, from here on, read at your own risk. The famous ‘son’ I’ve been talking about earlier is kind of the ‘main character’ or this novel. But then again, not really. Kyle Henry is his…..name. But really, his name WAS Kyle Bluchevsky-son of a notorious serial killer named Robert (Bobby) Bluchevsky. But Kyle’s dad has been killed in a death sentence, and it only leaves Kyle himself and his mom. So, he changes school, name, and most of all, his life. But even after his dad’s death, he’s still haunted by his father in the creepiest ways possible. Not soon after, he realizes that he recognizes one of the girls at his new school-in a bad way. Her mother was murdered by Kyle’s dad. But the girl, Naomi, is very soon intrigued by Kyle’s mysteriousness, all the while immune to the fact that this boy’s father was the killer of her mother. But as they open up to each other, secrets float up to the surface.
I finished this 334 page book in one sitting from 8:30 in the morning to who knows when. I just couldn’t stop my hands from turning the crisp pages. The writing is incredibly gifted and she has a way of making her characters stay with you long after you are done with the book. I honestly don’t want to return this book to the library. I might as well buy a copy from Indigo! 🙂 Guys, read this! 😛
