And their doom comes swiftly.
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.
But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.
Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?
The thing with TEN is I can’t tell you too much about it, not with out giving anything away. So what I will tell you is important and I expect that you commit it to memory, damn it!!
#1 You will WHIP through this book! Slow reader, fast reader…don’t care…you will speed read this baby because it a non-stop thrill ride and you will ALWAYS be needing to know what’s around the next corner or who’s the next to kick the bucket.
#2 You will not be disappointed! So, you know when you sit down to watch a movie or read a good book that’s horror/thriller based and with in, oh 4 seconds you go “ That’s who did it”? – well that WILL happen here….only about 10 times….lol. You will think you know who did it, then they die and your all “Shit…..hmmm ok then” and you start all over again. Gretchen McNeil goes above and beyond in this and gives you twists you will never see coming.
#3 You will be scared. I promise. There will be moments where you will jump or get goose bumps up your arms at the very least. Don’t read it in the dark, at home alone. Well don’t read it in the dark because that would be stupid…who can see in the dark? You know what I mean!!
I loved TEN. I loved it because we don’t have enough like it in YA and I most sincerely hope that McNeil keeps writing creepy, bloody horror novels in the future because she’s fantastic at it.
TEN is available TOMORROW! So pre order, call you’re local book shop to make sure they are planning to carry it and if they are not simply ask them to order you a copy. They will.
You don’t want this book. You need it.
