These Deadly Games Review

These Deadly Games Review

Title: These Deadly Games
Author: Diana Urban
Style: Young Adult, Thriller
Rating: 4.5/5

These Deadly Games is a story that will put you on the edge of your seat. Much like a video game that you can't stop playing, it's a story you can't stop reading. Crystal is sitting in class one day when she receives a video message.  Her little sister is bound, gagged and the message is clear.  Crystal must play a game and the rules are simple. If she calls the police, her sister dies. If she tells anyone, her sister dies. If she doesn’t play, her sister dies.  

This story is perfect for those that love YA thrillers.  It gave me Karen McManus and Holly Jackson vibes. The story is fast paced, suspenseful, addicting, creepy, and full of twists.  I'll say it again. This story is unputdownable. I had all these theories in my mind and I had to find out if I was right. The characters were well written and acted how I would expect high schoolers to act.  After I finished, I immediately added her debut novel All Your Twisted Secrets to my to-be-read list. I highly recommend this one!
Thank you Wednesday Books for the gifted advanced readers copy in exchange for my review.  These Deadly Games is out February 1st.
