I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you so much for sending me a copy of your book Caroline It was a pleasure to read it ”There was a new tantalising feeling growing in my chest One that had evaded me for so long it took me some time to figure out what it was Hope”If I had to describe “V Games” in one sentence I’d say it’s a mixture of “The Hunger Games” and “Resident Evil” lol Yes you read right “Resident Evil” The movies not the games ; PTo say it was a book that had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning would actually be the understatement of the century And this is putting it mildly XD I’ve always been a sucker for vampire stories and when Caroline offered me to read her book I didn’t even hesitate before I said “yes” lol When I accepted to read “V Games” as an ARC I didn’t expect to be swept off my feet so thoroughly thoughAnd oh boy did this book cause me to fall There was so much action and suspense it was really hard to put it down and with every round that followed Caroline only raised the stakes even higher Uh oh no pun intended I swear ; P There are a lot of literal stakes in the “V Games” though and the beautiful girls on the island that take part in the competition aren’t the sueamish kind of type at all They certainly made sure to make good use of their stakes and their minds were at least as sharp as their tongues Especially Kite’s but that’s another story XDAnyway let’s get back to the main review so I can tell you how amazing this book was ; I have to admit that this was probably one of the best if not the best ARC I’ve received so far Sure the plot is rather simple The motto is survive and the love story is barely there they are too busy with the motto ; P but how Caroline executed it is the real treat XD The storyline was intriguing and I just couldn’t help it but I found myself pulling for Selena lol And if we’re already speaking about the plot I might as well use this chance to brief you on it ; The plotAfter killing her abusive stepfather Selena Grey finds herself in a prison cell in an English jail her only ally her new inmate named Cass Selena is just getting used to the daily routine of her new “home” when a mysterious man appears and takes her and some of the other prisoners to a barren island in the North Sea Little did she know that she’d become a part of the “V Games” and soon would struggle to survive On an island that’s dipped into darkness and with a bunch of other girls that won’t hesitate to feed her to the Vs Varick might actually be her only hope to get out of this alive ; The characters This is where I go into detail about the characters and might drop a few spoilers So you better ignore my excessive ramblings if you don’t aim to be spoiled ; P ”Nothing could come of this It was a brief moment of light in an eternity of darkness”Selena I dropped my eyes “I’m a killer”“Killing a man who tormented you and your mother isn’t much of a crime”This girl is such a good person She always tried to help the others and this even though some of them definitely didn’t deserve it Despite the fact that she was brought to the island and given a stake she still fought to keep her humanity and in my opinion this really made her special While the other girls only aimed to survive and sacrificed others in order to achieve their goal Selena tried her best to save as many girls as possible Sure this kind of mentality caused her a lot of trouble and almost got her killed a few times Selena never second guessed her decisions though Or at least not much lol The story about her past broke my heart and I really hope that she was able to make it off the island There wouldn’t be a book two if she really made it I’m aware of that but still how can you not hope for the best lol ; P ”I don’t know” I hissed “But I’d be grateful if you stopped trying to worm your way into my head”“I can’t read your mind”“No Well I guess that’s ten points to Edward Cullen then isn’t it” ”I’d envied the rich growing up of their nice things their easy lives But now I despised them for it Money bred power and power bred evil Nothing was ever enough And even if they’d burned the entire world down for their own entertainment no happiness awaited them Only a pit that could never be filled”Varick ”He was breathtaking his skin golden and perfect his eyes two endless mossy pits His hair was overly long and twisted at the nape of his neck a thin black bandanna holding it in place”Ohh don’t even get me started XD I loved him right from the minute he entered the scene Dark mysterious handsome direct serious and sarcastic what’s not to love lol At the beginning of the game he was pretty detached but the blood he drank the human he became I loved that he fell for Selena without him even noticing and the conversation they had at the end of the book was just so so human I have no other word for it To read how he began to feel again how he reacted to her blood it was so damn bittersweet TT My poor sexy pie Varick I hated that he wasn’t able to escape the island and if those damn Helsings and their stupid daughter Mercy torture him even I’m going to safe him myself 3 What else I liked the fact that Varick was a pirate in his former life and I can’t wait to find out about his past Especially now that Jameson is with him XD ”I was broken then trained like a damned animal and every day since I’d had to fight the sickness in my gut The torture of being so close to their heavenly scent and yet forced under their thumb unable to acuire a single taste” ”Selena was trying to suss me out For what purpose I had no idea But it felt good to be seen by her Even if all she saw was a monster” ”I hadn’t felt desire for a girl since I’d been changed I didn’t know it was possible But even if I were blind I couldn’t miss the light of her She shone with the power of a thousand suns brightening the shadowy corners of my black heart perhaps even enough to return to me the ability to love”My conclusionI loved the book and it was so fast paced that it never got boring There wasn’t much of a love story in book one but the promise of it was already tangible and I really can’t wait to see how Caroline is going to continue with what she began XD I’m sure it’s going to be intriguing ;
