Summary from Goodreads:
Damaged. Deceptive. Dangerous. Darling. Are they labels or a warning? The answer could cost Sera everything.
Murder, justice, and revenge were so not a part of the plan when Sera set out on her senior camping trip. After all, hiking through the woods is supposed to be safe and uneventful.
Then one morning the group wakes up groggy, confused, and with words scrawled on their wrists: Damaged. Deceptive. Dangerous. Darling. Their supplies? Destroyed. Half their group? Gone. Their chaperone? Unconscious. Worst of all, they find four dolls acting out a murder—dolls dressed just like them.
Suddenly it’s clear; they’re being hunted. And with the only positive word on her wrist, Sera falls under suspicion…
My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):
This was a very thrilling, fast-paced mystery that had me gasping in fear very frequently.
The thing that really made this a good book was the creepy aspect of it. This was a plot driven book, and we don’t really learn a whole lot about the characters. That was okay with me though, because I feel like that kept the plot moving at a nice pace.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a thrilling mystery that is very different and unique.
There’s not a whole lot that I can say without spoiling this book, so just go read it for yourself and you’ll see why it was so great. 🙂
