Relentless (A Survival Horror Story) by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is a fast-paced tale of cat and mouse that I want more of! Below is a spoiler free review followed by one with more details.
Where to purchase:
This review is going to be minimal due to spoilers. After a night out, Sal and her friends wake up in an unknown place and are immediately thrust into a sick game of survival. It’s go, go, go from start to finish. The ending- it fits but I can see how some might not like it (for the record, I liked it). You’ll get closure for Sal and her friends, but it’s also left open for the next book (can’t wait for that to come to Audible!)
Kim did a fanatic job of narrating- great character voices, great pace, and perfect for the intense situation.
I highly recommend this one and while it’s not a new concept, it’s well-written and well-narrated. I was on the edge of my seat for this one and you will be too.
Parental guidance/trigger warnings: Due to spoilers, I will only say things like death and violence. Language used: Fx161, Sx54 (I’m impressed Christopher, didn’t seem that like many)
Below gives a tad more details about the plot. May contain spoilers. You've been warned.
After a night of drinking, Sal and her friends end up on an unknown island, thrust into a game of survival. It's a place where if you are wealthy enough, you can hunt humans. There is a game master of sorts. Sal and a few others turn the tables a couple of times, but is it enough to escape with their lives? Not telling you- sorry! I will say the story is left open for the next game of survival (but is it for Sal?). If you are familiar with Artinian's other works, you know it could go either way.
