How exciting is it that this novel is being turned into a TV series!
I’ve been searching for a halloween read, and this had been quite a promising one.
The beginning vividly reminded me of Scream, so if you’re a fan of the Scream franchise, you’ll enjoy reading this. It’s almost the same thing, except it’s THE OSBORNE SLAYER instead of GHOSTFACE.
Also, when a certain murder occurs, it is presented in almost the same way it does in The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes. And the dialogue is just so smart it should turn into a script and then a movie ASAP.
Without giving too much away, I recommend you start reading this book. Incredibly satisfying.
Quincy is a Final Girl who, years ago, survived a massacre that occured in a Cabin where she went to vacation with some of her friends. Now, when another Final Girl who survived the same tragedy is found dead, Quincy receives an unexpected visit and suddenly her world turns upside down.
The killer might just be around the corner.
It is not just the smart writing and the perfect creation of the story’s characters that drew me in, but it’s also the way the author drops bombshells when you least expect them throughout the book, and also the ending that was completely satisfying. I find myself spending my non-reading time suspecting a couple of characters based on some deeply suspicious traits they were given by the writer, but the ending was something else and it turned out to be shockingly explosive.
