Title & Series: 100 HOURS (100 Hours #1)
Author: Rachel Vincent
Release date: March 28, 2017
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Pages: 368
Formats: Hardcover, audio, eBook

Description…

A decadent spring break getaway on an exotic beach becomes a terrifying survival story when six Miami teens are kidnapped and ransomed.

Maddie is beyond done with her cousin Genesis’s entitled and shallow entourage. Genesis is so over Miami’s predictable social scene with its velvet ropes, petty power plays, and backstabbing boyfriends.

While Maddie craves family time for spring break, Genesis seeks novelty—like a last-minute getaway to an untouched beach in Colombia. And when Genesis wants something, it happens.

But paradise has its price. Dragged from their tents under the cover of dark, Genesis, Maddie, and their friends are kidnapped and held for ransom deep inside the jungle—with no diva left behind. It all feels so random to everyone except Genesis. She knows they were targeted for a reason. And that reason is her.

Now, as the hours count down, only one thing’s for certain: If the Miami hostages can’t set aside their personal problems, no one will make it out alive.

NOTE: This review is based on an ARC received from the author and an eARC received from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest thoughts about the book. A Kindle eCopy has been pre-ordered for my collection.


The Review

Action-packed and suspense-filled, 100 HOURS takes readers on a harrowing and nerve-wracking journey through the jungles of South America from not one but two characters’ perspectives. With a pace that is lightning fast, tension that continues to build, and with a few surprise twists, this is a story you will not be able to put down.

What starts off as a simple spring break vacation turns into a terrifying nightmare for Genesis, her cousins, and her friends. Used to being in control of every situation, she did not expect her decision to go to Colombia and hike to their beautiful remote beaches would be anything more than a mild inconvenience for her privileged friends and a step out of her comfort zone for her cousin Maddie.

She couldn’t have anticipated the situation they found themselves in – on the run, fleeing from a gun-toting kidnapper, facing even graver threats. She didn’t think her life held as many secrets as it did. She never imagined that things could go from idyllic to deadly in just 100 hours.

With a quick peek at the present, alternating points of view, and 100 hours to find out just what happened, Rachel Vincent created a gripping, electrifying, twisty-turny thriller. She introduced two female main characters to tell the tale – one who is strong, arrogant, entitled, manipulative and one who is cautious and caring, and who gains strength as the story progresses.

Not everything is as it seems – so expect a few surprises. This is not simply a young, wealthy tourists kidnapped for ransom horror story. There are hidden truths, power struggles, conflicting agendas, and betrayals of trust at play. And because this is just the first book in a series, not everything will be revealed or wrapped up at the story’s end.

100 HOURS promises to be a quick and enthralling read that will keep you on edge from the very first chapter where it teases what is to come. It delivers all the chills and anticipatory tension that can be hoped for. It drops hints at things that might be amiss. It reveals information from one character’s perspective that the other isn’t aware of. And it switches viewpoints, leaving you hanging for a chapter until the viewpoint switches back.

Readers who love their stories exciting, intense, and climactic from start to finish, that have a bit of a mystery, a touch of romance, a pulse-pounding pace, and characters they can connect with, will not want to miss this first installment in a sure to be outstanding series.

I haven’t read a ton of books this year, or blogged very much, so I almost decided not to participate. But this event is so much fun that I just couldn’t miss out.

The Book I’m Looking Forward to in 2017

There are SO many books I can’t wait to meet in 2017 – some I don’t even yet know I want to meet – and even more books in series that I want to continue reading. But I had to choose just ten.

However, for this post it doesn’t matter how few books I read this year, so I am totally listing a few honorable mentions.

I just wish I knew whether certain series were continuing in 2017 or at all…. like Leah Clifford’s Resurrectionist seriesJenna Black’s Gifted series or Sara Shepard’s The Amateurs.

And I WISH I hadn’t read a few books in 2016 that I totally would have listed as books I’m looking forward to in 2017 – 100 HOURS by Rachel Vincent, ROSEBLOOD by A.G. Howard, FLICKER AND MIST by Mary G. Thompson, and WAYFARER by Alexandra Bracken.

In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters.

In the tradition of Speak, this extraordinary debut novel shares the unforgettable story of a young woman as she struggles to find strength in the aftermath of an assault.

Eden was always good at being good. Starting high school didn’t change who she was. But the night her brother’s best friend rapes her, Eden’s world capsizes.

What was once simple, is now complex. What Eden once loved—who she once loved—she now hates. What she thought she knew to be true, is now lies. Nothing makes sense anymore, and she knows she’s supposed to tell someone what happened but she can’t. So she buries it instead. And she buries the way she used to be.

Told in four parts—freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year—this provocative debut reveals the deep cuts of trauma. But it also demonstrates one young woman’s strength as she navigates the disappointment and unbearable pains of adolescence, of first love and first heartbreak, of friendships broken and rebuilt, and while learning to embrace a power of survival she never knew she had hidden within her heart.

Blackbeard the pirate was known for striking fear in the hearts of the bravest of sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything.

Edward “Teach” Drummond, son of one of Bristol’s richest merchants, has just returned from a year-long journey on the high seas to find his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, Teach dreams only of returning to the vast ocean he’d begun to call home. There’s just one problem: convincing his father to let him leave and never come back.

Following her parents’ deaths, Anne Barrett is left penniless and soon to be homeless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne is forced to take a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks, and Anne longs for escape. How will she ever realize her dream of sailing to Curaçao—where her mother was born—when she’s stuck in England?

From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn to each other, they’re trapped by society and their own circumstances. Faced with an impossible choice, they must decide to chase their dreams and go, or follow their hearts and stay.

For fans of Cassandra Clare and Richelle Mead comes the unputdownable sequel to The Stars Never Rise, a book Rachel Caine, author of the bestselling Morganville Vampires series, called “haunting, unsettling, and eerily beautiful.”

ONE SPARK WILL RISE. Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.

Nina isn’t about to let that happen . . . even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Q&A with Author Rachel Vincent

Interview with Rachel by her sixteen-year-old daughter (Codename: Melody), who’s thinking about actually reading her mother’s book.

Melody: So, this is a series is about demons, right?

Rachel: Sort of. Not really. A century ago, Nina’s world was invaded by residents of another reality who can only remain in our world by taking over a human body. People called them demons, because that’s the only association they had for the concept of possession.

Melody: So these “demons” aren’t actually bad?

Rachel: Oh, no, they’re totally bad. They’re entertained by the suffering of humanity. They’re just not the residents of hell most people think of when they hear “demon.” But that’s all I can say without spoiling anything from THE STARS NEVER RISE!

Melody: Okay. But if they’re not religious demons, why is the government in this world run by the Church?

Rachel: Because people assumed that only the Holy could fight the unholy. So a fictional “Church” stepped in to do just that. To fill the power vacuum, when secular government couldn’t protect the people.

Melody: So THE STARS NEVER RISE is a book about faith?

Rachel: No. It’s a book about false faith. About the frailty of untested beliefs. About how accepting everything you hear as the truth can mean living a lie. That’s true with every predatory situation, from abusive relationships to investment scams. I just chose to tell that story on a larger scale, where the entire world has accepted a lie because it was easier to believe a hero has come to save us than to stand up and fight our own battles. Take from that what you will… 😉

Melody: Wow, Mom. That was deep. (Teenage eye roll.)

Rachel: (shrugs) There’s also lots of fighting, kissing, and setting demons on fire.

Her town’s population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.

When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she’ll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie’s sin has put her in serious trouble.

To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?

Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can’t survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.
