Bluejay Megan Stockton Noah, Jack, and Phil are three average guys who collect horror memorabilia and have a running competition to see who can come up with the most extreme or repulsive horror movie for their weekly guys’ night. When one of the friends gets the opportunity to steal tickets to an exclusive club that touts offering a realistic, immersive torture simulation, he jumps on the opportunity. Once they arrive at the theater they quickly realize that it isn't a simulation at all, and they have delved into an underground world that they don’t belong in. They have to uphold their stolen identities while trying to escape and not die (or kill anyone else) in the process.
Noah, Jack, and Phil have been best friends since college. Brought together by their love of the extreme and the macabre. When Noah got the chance to steal some tickets to an exclusive club that offers realistic torture simulations, he jumped at the chance. Surely his friends would enjoy this night out! It doesn’t take the three friends long to figure out this is no simulation, and they may have made the biggest mistake of their lives.
Talk about a thrilling read! Stockton came out swinging with this book. I was engrossed from the start and couldn’t wait to see what awaited these characters. Terror and dread, that’s what. With each turn of the page, things get darker and more brutal. The guys start to crack as they are tested in more ways than one. We follow along as they fight to survive, experiencing all the doubt, heartbreak and everything in between right along with them. If you enjoyed Hostel you need to read this book! This was my first time reading this author’s work and I will definitely be snatching up her other books.
