Madness (Engine’s Game Book 1)
by Paityn Parque
Madness (Engine's Game) Book 1 of 1: Engine's Game by Paityn E. Parque Death is not an escape. One night Ezra Adkins is brutally murdered in her own home. As she was dying, she expects to wake up in the afterworld. She was wrong. She loses consciousness and awakens into a horrific game of kill or be killed. Players can be killed an infinite number of times, but the only permanent way out of the game is their actual death by suicide. Players in the game ruthlessly hunt each other for points, while others kill for fun. Most players have given up on finding an escape from the game and spiral into insanity, killing without reason. It’s mayhem. Ezra soon learns who to trust and who to hunt down. But as she falls deeper into the game, she starts to lose herself as the bodies pile up. The line blurs between what she’s always known to be right and wrong. Metal will clash. Blood will spill. Minds will break. And before it’s too late, Ezra must find an escape from the game before she becomes the real enemy.
Trigger Warning: mental health, PTSD, suicide, and death.
Robin's Review: An enticing blend of suspense and thrilling drama. It was a well written and well thought out story that was full of twisty turns which is just how I like it. I really loved the authors descriptive storytelling, the exceptional world building and the suspenseful “gotta turn the page” of it. I am really impressed with Paityn E. Parque and hungrily await more from her. Thanks so much for a review copy of this book. I am voluntarily leaving a review of my personal opinion. Dark Fantasy Supernatural Thriller Murder Suspense
