Final Girls by Riley Sager
Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead…
They were the victims of separate tragedies. Three strangers bound by similar traumas grouped together by the press.
When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And as the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.
The plot was guided by a ‘American teen horror movie’ feel to it. Each victim being the sole survivor of a massacre or mass killing. But what this novel had that gave it the edge, was the story of the aftermath.
The novel flicks back and forth between events in the past as they unfold and the present lives of the victims Quincy, Lisa and Sam. Quincy is the central character, she is well written and I liked her.
The story develops into the victims struggles to deal with the trauma of the past events. Especially as they begin to question for themselves, what really happened in those massacres?
The book has some brilliant little twists and I would recommend to fans of the crime/thriller/horror genres. 4*
