Not too long ago, I bought a book from Target. Thought the cover looked really nice, so I bought it. I finished it recently and I figured ‘why not do a review on it?’
So, let’s get going on to the book.
The Assassin Game is by Kirsty McKay. At the main character, Cate’s school there’s a mystery game named Killer. The students see the game as more of an elite secret society. During the game’s “season” the members must avoid being “killed”, where everyone avoids pranks and the only person who knows who the killer is the “Game Master.” Cate is invited to join the game and play with them. But when people start to physically get hurt by allergies or herbs, the school threatens to shut the game down. Cate begins to unravel the killer’s mind games, as things start to get worse and worse.
When I first started reading the book, it felt really slow to me, as if I was reading the first part of 1984(it’s crazy boring). Once the first person was hurt, it slowly picked itself up. I loved the idea of the story. The mystery, the slight humor. But there were downsides to it. I know I might be too mature for this book, but it seemed childish at times.
Overall, I would give the book a3.5/5 stars. I loved the story and how it developed, but there were some unexpressed ideas that could have happened.
