As much as I dislike book reviews that open with “This genre usually isn’t the type I read so I was unsure if I’d like it, but ended up loving it”, I can say that about this book. Kind of.
I tend to read general young adult books, as well as the odd few fantasy and science fiction. Rarely thrillers, but clearly I’m missing out. If I remember correctly, the last time I read a thriller-type book would be Scorpia Rising from the Alex Rider series, which came out back in 2011. So yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve read a thriller. Not only that, but the amount of thrillers I have read has been far and few.
