Traveling Sisters review by Brenda with Kaceey
I read The Killing Game with Kaceey and we were lost in the traumatized dark murky coulee and not wanting to be found until we finished this chilling, fascinating yet disturbing killing game. At times we wanted to crawl on out as we became a little uncomfortable in all the grimy, muddy violence but we couldn’t bring ourselves to actually start crawling out. Instead, we were lost in this captivating and unsettling story. Our hearts were racing and I am sure at times we needed to be found as we thought we might stop breathing. We continued and felt ourselves being pulled more into the twisted game our tormenter had in store for us. There is no holding back here from our master of the killing game, creating the most uncomfortable tension like we never felt before.
The Killing Game is a brilliant and exciting paced story that is cleverly told in real time, minute by minute, drawing us right into the fear and terror of this fast action-packed story. The chapters are short with cliffhangers that left us dangling and gasping for air.
Carol does a fantastic job creating Hollywood’s finest of wealth, fame and fortune with these likable and not so likable characters. He cleverly pushes his characters, testing their limits with the twisted, disturbing games and in turn testing us and had us questioning human nature. He had us rooting for some and shamefully not for others, drawing us into this twisted, murky game. In the end, we were left shocked by these characters and our reaction to them and what was behind Hollywood’s fame and glamour in this story. That’s great writing.
Yes J.S. Carol, you have done your job well and succeeded in traumatizing us with your twisted Killing Game. We will gladly be searching out more books by you and keeping our eyes peeled for your new one.
We highly recommend with caution as there is a bit of violence to this one.
