A group of students are being evacuated to safety at The Retreat when their coach crashes, trapping them inside without food or water while a snowstorm rages and temperatures plummet. Elsewhere, a sudden power outage leaves another group similarly stranded in a cable car suspended high above the ground. Meanwhile, the group of people residing at The Retreat are facing their own perils. Supplies are dwindling, the power supply is unreliable, and everyone is on edge due to suspicious activities that have recently come to light.
The hazards each group faces are different, but they have a few things in common:
All are determined to survive.
None can call for help.
Their greatest fear, above all else, is exposure to the deadly virus that sometimes culminates in something far worse than death itself.
What an outstanding book this was! Five stars isn’t enough. This book—as well as the previous books in the trilogy—has more than earned ALL the stars… and here’s why:
Tara and Beth have been estranged for over a decade when she’s notified of her older sister’s death in a suspicious fire at their childhood home. Tara is shocked to learn Beth named her as guardian of her sixteen-year-old daughter, Hannah, but is determined to make the best of it. Hannah has questions Tara is unable to answer, but of even greater concern are the threatening messages she started receiving shortly after her niece arrived. Someone seems to be targeting her family, and Tara is pretty sure she knows why. The question is… who? And why now?
It’s been a while since I’ve written a review, or anything else here on the blog. With everything going on in the world right now, I haven’t been able to concentrate on writing out my opinions about the books I’ve read—until today. A quick thought written out on Goodreads ending up becoming a mini-review, so I decided to post it here, as well.
