S.T.A.G.S. by M.A. Bennett (Review)
In a world of money and prestige, Greer is the odd one out. She is not a rich socialite, she is an average middle class girl that is in the world of STAGS (a prestigious school stuck in the midivil times) on a special scholarship. Although elitist and snooty, the school seemed pretty normal, at least until a strange invite arrives to go "Huntin', Shootin', Fishing'" with the Medievals (the richest and most powerful of the school). From there things start falling apart. Who will survive the weekend? What are they really hunting, shooting and fishing?
Not as exciting as I thought it would be. If I'm honest, I assumed that there would be more action and insane twists in this story then there actually was. With the synopsis hinting at human hunting and a giant hunger-games level drama story, I was pretty underwhelmed. I thought that the build up was too slow for that much of an underwhelming reveal. For human killers, the killers really don't seem that committed to getting things done and done right. They seemed to just settle for just scaring their victims... their victims they had been intending to MURDER! It made no sense. Anyway, didn't love it, but it was okay all things considered so I give it the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
