I came across this author when I purchased The Orphans series, but like a lot of books on my kindle I have not got around to reading them. So this was the 1st one I have read by this author, and I wanted to read a good slasher story, with this book you have definitely got one

From the moment you start reading, you are met with a menacing man in a mask with a fetish for sharp items, be it a machete or a knife, no one is safe when he is out to kill.  Isaac and Traci are very much in love and to celebrate their engagement, they decide to go on a camping trip. Joined by 4 unexpected guests they set off oblivious to what horrors they will face. Not wanting to give any spoilers I will leave the synopsis there.

First off I cannot believe that the majority of the story happened over 2 days.   From the moment Traci and Isaac was in the forest I felt that I was there watching the horrific scenes. The action is none stop and I found myself shouting at them to keep running and try to escape. The killing scenes were graphic but if you have watched any slasher films then you know what to expect. Although I was not fussed about Brandi and Tony, I really warmed to Traci, Isaac, Katy and Jack and I think this was the way the characters were introduced to us. They were just like you or me, down to earth and went away to just have fun. I must admit I had tears in my eyes when I was reading the funeral scene, it was so beautifully written and not what I expected when reading a slasher book. With the police get involved, the action moved up a gear, and I am still trying to work out how the killer managed to do some of the murders. From that moment each chapter was alternating days Saturday describing how the group try to escape and Sunday the Police search, surprisingly this was not at all confusing and just added more suspense to the story. The twists keep you guessing throughout and even when you know when the killer is, the author puts one more twist into the story leading it nicely to book 2.

If you like your slasher movies or just want a great exciting story, then this book is a must read. I have never liked camping and after reading this, my reason for not going have just been proven. A brilliant action packed book
