I love cheesy horrorsurvival type books and films so I was really pumped for this I was expecting lots of gore and some twists and turns First the gore was kind of basic and predictable to me Keep in mind that I watch a lot of horror no I mean a lot and while there was gore than normal YA books it just felt flat to me Nothing made me recoil or shocked me It was liked a REALLY watered down torture porn flick and I wasn't too impressed The characters are all morons which would be fine if they weren't written like experts in so many fields The decisions made no freaking sense I'm all for some dumb decisions but the side eye was heavy in this one for me I just wanted I will say the book moves fast and I can understand why some will find this one exciting I am not one of those people and I cannot recommend this book sadly It's my second read from the Red Eye series and I plan on reading them all eventually I loved Frozen Charlotte which was also put up for the Red Eye series RTC

we also see its impact on the relationships between family members I definitely understood and empathised with the protector roleWhat delighted me above all was that I was surprised by both characters and events at the end I was surprised by certain actions of two characters and the actions of a third while I saw it coming had me rethinking whether I still liked them or not Usually young adult books while entertaining are generally fairly predictable I had some ideas of where the plot was heading but I not only didn’t guess the end it was also better than anything I’d come up with myself Another unexpected bonus was that this story got me to thinking about what I’d do if I was in any one of the character’s places Black and white moral uestions greyed for some characters and in most situations I could understand where they were coming from I loved the uestions this book made me consider for myself What would I be willing to do to win £1 million What sacrifices would I be willing to make How much is my integrity worth to me Would £1 million cover the therapy bills I’d need to pay if I compromised my morals enough that I did what I had to in order to win Is there a point of no return where the end justifies the means and what type of person is willing to cross this line If you hurt me does that then entitle me to take revenge on youI had just one unanswered uestion at the end of this book and while it’s possible I missed the explanation it is bugging me Why was team 10 disualifiedI need to go find some of Bryony Pearce’s novels If this novel is any indication of her talent her back catalogue is going to be making its way to my Kindle fairly soonThank you so much to NetGalley and Stripes Publishing an imprint of Little Tiger Group for the opportunity to read this book I knew from having already read Charlotte Says that I was interested in reading Red Eye books Now I’m convinced I need to read them all
