There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It’s very clear that something sinister is at play, which makes the plot a little unrealistic. Of course, the characters are quite desperate, but their reasons for attending the dinner just aren’t convincing enough. This bit of the plot is slightly sketchy, but it gets better.
What I love about this book is that it alternates between the present and the past, showing flashes of what happened one year ago. The story unravels and the crime becomes clearer, but it still isn’t obvious what everyone’s part in the crime is.
Meanwhile, at the creepy old mansion where the “dinner” is, suspicion abounds and the secrets begin pouring out. This part is quite fascinating because none of the characters can trust each other and loyalties are questioned. The story starts getting put together and the bigger picture becomes clearer.
Of course, there are several plot twists – who committed the crime? Who wants revenge? Is anyone really who they seem to be? And will everyone reveal their secrets? The last bit of the book was the most interesting, with everything being revealed, and the mysteries of both, the past and the present being solved. I loved the ending!

I feel like this had so much potential but in its execution it was just a let down. I try not to write negative reviews as I know whilst I may loathe a book others will love it, but this was just a disappointment.
The whole thing was just so unrealistic, starting with why the hell these kids would go to this weird murder mystery night to win a scholarship. Even with a website that seems totally bogus if you ask me, let alone the fact it was the anniversary of Shane’s death which clearly should’ve been a great big red flag.
Brett was the only character I liked, and that was mainly because even though he was a bully he seemed to have genuine emotions.
Parker was absolutely vile, no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Gavin was pointless. Like literally what was the point of his character?
Juniper was meh.
Ruby had a nice sequinned outfit.
That’s about it.
The plot of the five of them being lured to this house was absurd. Taking weapons to a party with your classmates? Yeh, ok then...
I can’t even remember half the stuff that happened up until the “revelation”. The twists didn’t really seem like twists, they seemed pretty obvious.
One thing I did like was the references to classic fairy tales that were scattered throughout. Perhaps if the author writes a retelling of a fairy tale I’ll read it.
I think because I read so many crime thrillers I was unfairly comparing this to them, but even so, the ending was just ridiculous and I’m pretty sure the police would be conducting one hell of an investigation.
Not for me I’m afraid.
It started off average but I hoped that it would get better, but boy was I wrong; it just got worse and worse, more and more confusing the more I read, so much so my head was almost spinning with confusion by the time I finished it.
The characters were well below average, they were all weak minded an had no originality. They all had there own dark little "secrets" which were not that compelling at all. And they had no depth to them whatsoever.
Now onto the biggest let down: the plot; what a load of rubbish. It was convoluted and unoriginal. It was written so poorly that most of the time I had no idea what was going on. I mean literally I was confused out of my mind; who was workinv with who, who loved who, who did what and why. I was sat there reading without understanding anything I was reading.
Overall the book was a major letdown, which quite frankly I'm suprised that it even managed to get published.
As all of the characters tell part of the story, it can be difficult to tell which person is talking and when. There are instances where you have to double check which character you are reading as they all blend into one.
The plot twist is somewhat predictable but is also creative, as you go from hating characters to loving them. Overall it’s not an awful book, however it’s something I wouldn’t read again and it is let down by the layout and undistinguishable speech from the charecters.
There are plenty of better YA crime novels to read than this.
