Social Media Tour – The Last by Hanna Jameson

#BookstagramTour Welcome to my stop on the bookstagram tour for #TheLast by Hanna Jameson.

Synopsis:

BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington.

Historian Jon Keller is on a trip to Switzerland when the world ends. As the lights go out on civilisation, he wishes he had a way of knowing whether his wife, Nadia, and their two daughters are still alive. More than anything, Jon wishes he hadn’t ignored Nadia’s last message.

Twenty people remain in Jon’s hotel. Far from the nearest city and walled in by towering trees, they wait, they survive.

Then one day, the body of a young girl is found. It’s clear she has been murdered. Which means that someone in the hotel is a killer.

As paranoia descends, Jon decides to investigate. But how far is he willing to go in pursuit of justice? And what kind of justice can he hope for, when society as he knows it no longer exists?

My Review: 4 / 5 very suspenseful stars!

I read The Last in one sitting. You may say “oh that’s quite common for reading any crime fiction”. But while I read it in one sitting, I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through! Hanna was able to set the scenes seamlessly and created such a suspense that I was so tempted on a few occasions (plot twists) to just go straight to the end to find out what happened. The suspense was off the chart! To me, reading The Last was like watching the movie Da Vinci’s Code but it is set in the world of Walking Dead! It was that intense!

What I also love most about this book is the fact that the author has created such chilling, creepy and haunting vibe for the hotel (I do not like this hotel at all!). It just adds to the level of uncertainty and suspense. There were a few occasions I was creeped out so much by the descriptions of what’s going on in the hotel. I love it and hate it at the same time!

In all, I thoroughly enjoyed The Last. It was intense, fast paced and suspenseful. An end of the world dystopian mixed with detective crime fiction. Really enjoyed this!
