BLOG TOUR ~ The Island by Adrian McKinty




Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the final day of the Blog Tour for The Island by Adrian McKinty where I have a review from his latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Tracy Fenton from Compulsive Readers who organised this tour in conjunction with Orion Books to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else has taken part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of this review so without further ado, here it is:

Tom is married to Heather who is a step-mom to Olivia and Owen, they are an American family who are in Australia on holiday. They are given a once in  lifetime chance to visit an idyllic island off the coast which is a private oasis where only one family lives and when they are told so much about the island and all the animals they'll visit, especially the 2 kids, they jump at the chance for this adventure.

But while there, their lives will change forever.....

Whilst driving around on the island, they commit a hit and run but in desperation they try to save the persons life but when they fail they instead they try to hide the body. It's not long before the other family on the island discover one of their own is missing and so begins a desperate and scary game of cat and mouse, a hunt for justice and a vicious fight for survival against all the elements and more importantly, each other......

I hadn't picked up a book since July 2020 due to a lot of stuff going on in my life and I just lost interest in it with the pandemic we were dealing with so I asked to take part in this Blog Tour for The Island and I'm so glad that I did as I think it's got me back into reading again after such a long time, so the verdict is I didn't just like it, I absolutely LOVED it, it definitely didn't disappoint. This book is absolutely brilliant and I CAN'T recommend it enough, it had me gripped from the prologue right through to the end, there were some great twists and turns too. I even had to slow down reading it as I didn't want it to end, the story flowed really well and at a fast pace too like a rollercoaster ride with some pulse pounding in parts. There were parts in the book I could feel my heart rate rising a little so it's definitely not for the fainthearted. This is the second book by Adrian and I am really looking forward to his next book already but first I'll be going back to read The Chain as it's been sitting in my book pile for a long time.

The Island is published and available on Kindle, Audiobooks and from all good bookstores from May 26th 2022.
