Today I’m thrilled to be able to offer followers of my blog the chance to win a paperback copy of Final Girls By Riley Sager to celebrate its release in paperback today. My thanks to the publishers Edbury Publishing for this fabulous prize.
If you haven’t read Final Girls yet it’s a book I would highly recommend and you can read my thoughts on this gripping book further down this post, you can also find details on how to enter the Giveaway, but first the book details…….
Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead…
They were the victims of separate massacres. Grouped together by the press, and dubbed the Final Girls, they are treated like something fresh out of a slasher movie.
When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.
If your looking for an “edge of your seat” thriller then look no further, Final Girls by Riley Sager will have you gripped from the first page, all the way to its nail biting conclusion. Final Girls tells the story of Three victims of separate massacres, they all have suffered similar experiences to those slasher movies most of us have watched, you know the ones I mean where one “Final Girl” is left in the closing scenes and manages to come out alive. Final Girls is a compulsive read, with characters who are at once unreliable and sympathetic.
What follows is the story of two of the survivors Quincy and Sam, and that’s all I’m going to say about the plot as I would hate to give away spoilers. What drew me to this book in the first place was the author took the unusual step to focus on the survivors of the most awful crimes after the event, so this novel certainly makes for an original and compulsive read.
As you would expect both Quincy and Sam may have survived shocking and traumatic events but neither of them have come out unscathed, at the start they both seem pretty average until the author weaves his magic and you realise both characters are not only complex but also very damaged by their traumatic experiences and I found them both untrustworthy and for me that’s what made this novel such a compelling read.
With twist and turns galore it’s pretty much impossible to “second guess” where the author is leading the reader, but I certainly enjoyed every minute of this dark crime thriller. Full of mystery and suspense this novel certainly fray’s the nerves, as the tension and suspense reaches fever pitch before the final shocking scenes. Riley Sager without doubt has written a novel that makes for a tense and exhilarating read and if you are a fan of a well written crime thriller then this is one book you don’t want to miss.
