I am super excited to share my review with you today for The Drift by C.J. Tudor….Which is out now!
Survival can be murder . . .
During a deadly snowstorm, Hannah awakens to carnage, all mangled metal and shattered glass. Evacuated from a secluded boarding school, her coach careered off the road, trapping her with a handful of survivors.
Meg awakens to a gentle rocking. She’s in a cable car stranded high above snowy mountains, with five strangers and no memory of how they got on board.
Carter is gazing out of the window of an isolated ski chalet that he and his companions call home. As their generator begins to waver in the storm, the threat of something lurking in the chalet’s depths looms larger.
Outside, the storm rages. Inside one group, a killer lurks.
But which one?
And who will make it out alive?
I must admit The Burning Girls is the only book that I have read by CJ Tudor. I loved it that much I couldn’t wait to get my teeth into The Drift….And wow what a book! It sure as hell didn’t disappoint.
What can I say but this book is brilliantly written. I felt right there in the story when Tudor sets the scene with Hannah trapped on a coach….Meg wakes in a cable car above the snowy mountains.Then you have Carter in an isolated ski Chalet and a storm is moving in. Three different stories all woven into one. This book will have you racing through the pages to find out what is going to happen next.
You can feel the coldness, the atmosphere, the tension…..it will send shivers down your spine. I for one would not have liked to have been in that situation.
I was hooked from start to finish. It is scary, addictive, totally on the edge of your seat reading. I feel like Tudor is the millennium’s Stephen King. She is known for that supernatural element in her stories. So there I am waiting for that and boom I am thrown sideways with something I totally wasn’t expecting. The Drift is very different to The Burning Girls but it is so orginal and filled with OMG moments.
It is fast paced and makes you question the characters and want to know what is going to happen next and who is the killer! Not forgetting it would make a brilliant film. I loved everything about it, giving it all the stars!
