Review - The Desert Island Game by Cat Voleur

Synopsis -

The world has ended. Now what?

When Bea wakes to discover she and her lover, Evian, are still alive after the apocalypse, things seem too good to be true. Soon, she begins to suspect they are. The more concerns she voices about their survival on an island paradise, the easier their lives become. Her attempts to ask questions are met by disinterest and anger from her partner.

Why can she not remember key details about her life before coming to the island? Why is she seeing and hearing things that aren’t there? How well does she really know Evian?

As suspicion and distrust continue to mount, Bea realizes the apocalypse was the least of her worries.

But is there a way off the island, and is paradise really Hell?

Review -

The world has ended, with Evian and Bea the only ones to make it out alive. The pair are on Evian's private island, living in the lap of luxury, with romance blooming. But all is not as it seems.

This book is relatively short, but it is a mind-bending trip where you never really know what's real and what isn't. That is a theme that runs through the entire length of the story, which ends with more questions than answers.

I have let this one percolate in my brain for a few days after reading and am still somewhat on the fence about how I feel about the whole thing. it's wonderfully written and filled with tension and angst, but it's one that is sure to be very divisive.

The book releases on January 15 and you can pre-order your copy HERE.
