The Last One by Alexandra Olivia
I got an email from NetGalley this morning offering this title as a ‘read now’ for the first 200 members. This means you don’t need to request the title from the publishers.
These emails usually come when I’m at work so there’s never any point in clicking the link as the first 200 requests will be long gone. Being on annual leave has its advantages.
I wanted to read this because I love the blurb:
When Zoo agrees to take part in a new reality TV show, In the Dark, she knows that she will be tested to the limits of her endurance. Beating eleven competitors in a series of survival tasks deep in the forest, living on camera at the extremes of her comfort zone, will be the ultimate challenge before she returns home to start a family. A GAME WITH NO END As the contestants are overcome by hunger, injury and psychological breakdown, the mind games, tricks and hazards to which Zoo is subjected grow dark beyond belief. This isn’t what she signed up for: the deserted towns and gruesome props, the empty loneliness. Is this a game with no end? And what is happening away from the cameras’ gaze? Discovering the truth will be just the beginning.
