Ten writers are selected for a summer-long writing retreat with the most celebrated and reclusive author in the world. Their host is the legendary Roderick Wells.
Handsome, enigmatic, and fiendishly talented, Wells promises to teach his pupils about writing, about magic, about the untapped potential that each of them possesses. Most of all, he plans to teach them about the darkness in their hearts.
The writers think they are signing up for a chance at riches and literary prestige. But they are really entering the twisted imagination of a deranged genius, a lethal contest pitting them against one another in a struggle for their sanity and their lives. They have entered into Roderick Wells’s most brilliant and horrible creation.
The Dark Game.

I love this author’s books and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one – and isn’t that cover just great, it helped make this one jump right up my list of books to read!!
I thought that the plot for this book was great, the blurb really drew me in (as did the cover) and I have to say that I think the author did an excellent job with the story – I really enjoy his writing style and this one was a real page turner for me and a thoroughly addictive read!
This book is a fab new release from the author and whilst it is not as gruesome as some of his other books it is still a brilliant read. It is four stars from me for this one, highly recommended and I am already looking forward to his next release!!
