Lucca wakes up in a burlap sack, and that isn’t something that happens every day. He quickly realises that he’s woken far from home in a place where most things will eat you. Lucca begins to run. He’s soon joined by a girl who can’t get away from him fast enough but that is about to change when they discover the true horrors that surround them on the island.
This is a short introductory story for a series that looks promising. Once you get used to the narration style, the story immerses you within the world French has created. The characters are youths with very realistic teenage personalities and the threats are frightening as seen through the eyes of said teenagers.
I look forward to finding out more about this sinister island.
