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?
(Recently I blogged about The Army of TEN. This is the book associated with that group) Also, TEN has the best book trailer I have even seen –
Gretchen McNeil (the author) is the women signing in the background! The trailer is a replica of the video on the DVD from the book. Awesome, right?
I read this book in (literally) 3hrs. I was going to do a little bit of reading before going to bed, and I couldn’t stop. (FYI- Don’t read this book in the dark, with a flashlight. I did that…) It was amazing. It had so many plot twists, I was guessing the whole time. Even in the last chapters, I thought I knew who the killer was, and I was totally wrong. People (Not telling who, ’cause SPOILERS) who supposedly died, were alive. I was engrossed in the book, that its not even funny. Also, Meg is literally me. Its almost creepy how similar Meg is to me. The nerdy writer, always overlooked, unable to communicate her thoughts. Its like Ms. McNeil was writing about me. So, I connected with Meg very easily, and that helped me enjoy TEN even more then I would of with a different character.
I give TEN 5 out of 5 stars. But, don’t blame me if you can;t sleep at night after reading TEN…
