The GOOD: PLOT, A+++ VERY original. I cannot say how wonderful it is to read a novel...romance, YA, mystery, crime horror or any other genre that has a plot with twists and turns rather than the same old plot-line with different characters. For this alone, I offer my gratitude, a curtsy, continued success and good writing juju. Sadly, it has become a true necessity to also thank your editor for being phenomenal! With the advent of self-publishing, I've had to discard books that appear to have never been eyeballed by an editor. Not the case here! OUTSTANDING JOB Madam Editor! Ty! (BTW...despite my pet peeve about editing, I will NOT be editing my review... Wink!). Great characters and character arcs. Additionally, the characters were absolutely true to life. So well developed I felt like they were a part of my life. I TRULY was captured from page 1 and continued to be until "THE END". (The brilliant...a female lead, Petty, who is BADA*** and the male lead Dekker, who is whiney, graceless and nearly useless at defending himself, let alone Petty! What a phenomenal flip from the Alpha male/needy female and with a realistic reason WHY this works!)
THE BAD: hmmm.....oh yes....I wanted to finish " The Drowning Game" in one sitting, but I didn't think my heart could take it (and I was tired).
THE UGLY: Likely this unedited review! Nothing in the story as far as technical issues, though I generally figured out twists JUST before I read them...but I'm brilliant, so no fault to LS Hawker...lol. Seriously, the only UGLY would be the characters meant to be UGLY...and there are more than a few!
family crises, family caring and very descriptive emotional results of the treatment of the main character. Loved the ending.
This fast paced thriller follows Petty, over a short timeline, as she tries to escape the future her father has planned for her, outrun the police and various others out to get her, and find out why her father brought her up in the way he did. The few main characters come to life as Petty uses all her wits, and father's training, to try to survive and discover the truth about herself and her family.
I loved this book. I found it exciting and gripping, plus it has some interesting psychological angles. I was totally involved with the main characters, and enjoyed the cliff hangers many chapters ended with. No question that is a 5* rating from me, because of the enjoyment and entertainment value of the book.
The Drowning Game opens with a death, then of learning the lead, Petty Moshen, is an isolated young woman who makes Katniss Everdeen seem warm-natured and lazy. Devious manipulation sends Petty on the run with Dekker, with non-stop action, plot twists, and danger. The Drowning Game was a thrilling ride. I cannot to dig into everything LS Hawker has to offer.
Enter Dekker, a college dropout, delivery boy and drummer, who has a chance to right himself with a band he formerly played for. But in addition to being a loser, and an addiction to nicotine, this 22-year-old has a heart of gold and is pretty-substantial hero material.
We learn a lot about Petty, how beautiful she is, how buff and strong she is, and we learn much about Dekker; still I wanted a better sense of him physically. The author concentrated so much on his negatives, which says a lot about her ability to write character growth because I still really liked this guy.
Full of twists and surprises, a complex plot and good guys vs. bad, the reader will root for Petty all the way till the very last page.
