The Drift – C.J. Tudor.

Back of the book :

Survival can be murder . . .

Hannah awakens to carnage, all mangled metal and shattered glass. Evacuated from a secluded boarding school during a snowstorm, her coach careered off the road, trapping her with a handful of survivors.

Meg awakens to a gentle rocking. She’s in a cable car stranded high above snowy mountains, with five strangers and no memory of how they got on board.

Carter is gazing out of the window of an isolated ski chalet that he and his companions call home. As their generator begins to waver in the storm, the threat of something lurking in the chalet’s depths looms larger.

Outside, the storm rages. Inside each group, a killer lurks.

But who?

And will anyone make it out alive? . . .

What I think :

When I first Started reading this novel it wasn’t clear what country it was set in (although I guessed probably Switzerland or some equally cold country) or even what time – now 5,10 or even in 20 years or that it was a dystopian world. However it soon becomes clear that its not life as we know it. All of the above do become apparent quite quickly though.

All the way through there isn’t a dull moment, its very fast paced, there really is a lot happening. (WARNING : The opening pages are pretty gruesome, so strap yourself in for a bumpy ride !)

This action packed novel is spread over three sites with three main characters, Hannah, Meg and Carter who narrate the chapters and tell the story of the ‘survivors’.

These characters are brilliantly written, and I certainly couldn’t put this book down, In fact I was up until the early hours of the morning to finish this book !

I Loved it ! But I wouldn’t expect anything less with a C.J.Tudor novel ( I always get very excited when a new C.J.Tudor novel is published, I just love her books and have read all of them !)

This is my first book review in a long time (about 6 months) and I couldn’t think of a better book to get started with reviewing again.

I give this brilliant book 10/10 (5 Stars)
