Book Review: No Ordinary Girl by Cheryl Elaine

Book Review(6).png

Blurb:

What started out as a night of celebration for Aimee soon turned into a nightmare. Snatched by cruel, sadistic monsters – the worst creatures mankind has ever produced – she’s thrown into a metal container, among other victims too frightened to make a single sound.

The game-keepers force everyone to play. They deliver torment and pain in equal measure. Every hunter has their own agenda and reasons to maim and torture.

Detective Johnson is one step away from catching the killers. Wrestling with his instincts as a father to serve justice his own way, this is no ordinary case for him. Can he stop the vile sadists before they damage more young girls, as well as his own daughter?

Aimee’s ordeal within the compound brings her to the conclusion that she’s no ordinary girl. But can she hang onto her sanity long enough to escape? And will she find a different way to play?

This crime thriller will keep you riveted. It’s no ordinary story.

Please note: contains graphic content.

Review:

Well, the blurb wasn’t joking at the graphic content lol! This book was gruesome in parts but it was needed. Telling the story of Aimee and the thing’s she had to endure meant that in order to get the horror of her situation across to the reader graphic scenes were necessary. I did enjoy this book, it was different from anything I had read before and the plot kept me interested. The only let down was that I feel the 2nd half was a bit rushed. I would have liked to have seen what Aimee did during the months when she was becoming Angel. Aimee made for an interesting character, although the situation with her friend Kelly could have been resolved in a different way and in the end it seemed that she was not that different from those she had took Kelly from. Other than that I have absolutely no problem with the book. It was well-written and interesting.

Rating:

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Thanks for reading.
