The Troop by Nick Cutter Review

18002456

Once a year, scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a three-day camping trip—a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story and a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder—shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry—stumbles upon their campsite, Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. An inexplicable horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival that will pit the troop against the elements, the infected...and one another.

*********
I first got pulled into this book because the title and cover intrigued me. The synopsis begged me to open the pages within..and boy did I turn the pages! I love thrillers and this one did not disappoint. I love that as you are reading what is currently going on, you get flash backs of what led up to the current story so you don't get lost, but explained. You find yourself reading what may seem like a cozy read, then turns into a scary thriller when the boys and Tim find themselves not so alone anymore. Then the story takes another turn and is no longer just about surviving the unknown and unwelcome guest on their trip, but they find themselves having to make difficult life or death choices. These boy don't seem to be able to catch a break... 

This was a great debut novel, I did leave the story with a couple of unanswered questions but that did not take away from the greatness of the book or the author.   
I would recommend this book :)

I received this ebook for free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review
