ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of The Survivor, go HERE.
The Survivor was a really good read with a lot of suspense. I found it interesting how the novel was based on a solved cold case - it made the things that had happened to Amy all the more chilling.
I don't really have a favorite character from The Survivor. I liked both Tigo and Kariss, but a few things annoyed/frustrated me about them. Mainly, how stubborn Kariss was and all the risks she took. Also, all the mentions of Buzz Lightyear and Tigo were annoying - it was fine at first, but got to be too much towards the end.
The mystery was great! It took me a long time before I actually had a plausible guess of who the killer might be.
At times there seemed to be a little too much detail in The Survivor and that was one reason I didn't love the book. Still, it was very good and I really enjoyed it.
If you like suspense novels, I think you'll enjoy The Survivor. You'll probably want to read book one, The Chase, first, though it's not completely necessary for you to enjoy this one.
