Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to—a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls. Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet...
Once again this is a NetGalley copy that I have had lingering around on my Kindle forever. After receiving a copy in my FairyLoot I finally gave in and read it... honestly I was a tad bit disappointed. Personally I thought the writing style a little unnecessarily over complicated, it took a while to get used to but it was beautifully descriptive.

Roar shouldn’t be drawn to the moody human girl with eyes that leave him weak in the knees.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog you will know how much I girl crush on Kaitlyn Davis and her book. Frost (Midnight Ice#1) was one of the first books I formally reviewed and I still think about it on a regular basis.

Cut to several months later and £100's less in my bank account I now have so many fantasy reads on my shelf, some that I have thoroughly enjoyed and some I am excited to read. And for that reason I am eternally grateful to Kaitlyn.
