#Review ~ Ten by Gretchen McNeil

Posted September 15, 2016 by Michelle in Review / 8 Comments

When I started this book I didn’t realized it was based off another one. I didn’t read that one so this was new to me. It sort of reminded me of a movie. I just can’t think of what movie that is but one of those teen b-horror movies you see on the Syfy channel. I love those movies and I actually really enjoyed this book.

Meg and her friend Minnie are invited to a party on an island. Minnie is a little needy and Meg is hiding a few secrets. When things take a drastic turn 10 people are stuck on an island with a killer that is out of revenge. This book was one hell of a ride. I liked the characters, each with a very different personality and voice. I thought Gretchen McNeil did a very good job of writing each character. I am finding myself really enjoying her book. The book is told in Meg’s POV and I really was rooting for Meg the entire time. I felt at some point she got pulled into this without really doing anything but I could see how the killer wanted her involved.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, I thought the story was creepy and since I didn’t read the other one I have nothing to compare it to so it was a great story and I loved all the twists and turns. Honestly had no idea who the killer was and was sort of shocked when it was revealed. I can’t wait to read more from this author since she quickly becoming one of my favorite horror writers.

  1. I’ve seen this one around, but didn’t realize it was based of another book either. It does sound like a creepy read with how they are stuck on the island and all the twists and turns. It’s great when each character has a very different personality! Glad you enjoyed this one. I am not a fan of horror, but I do enjoy a good suspense or mystery book.

  2. Sounds really good. Your description of her as a horror writer has me scared though… I thought she was more teen suspense. Is Get Even horror? Because I’m reading that next and I’m totally scared now. Horror is not my cup of tea…

  3. Dude, this book. I liked it too- yeah I know it’s sort of a play on And Then There Were None maybe but it was still fun, from the teen/ horror perspective. And after this and Get Even I’m liking her stuff too. I liked Meg and thought it was cool her friend has issues- that added something to it. And I wasn’t sure about the killer either. Nice review!
