My Review: The Last Resort by Matt Drabble


The Last Resort
By Matt Drabble
Genre: Horror, Thriller



The Paradise Resort is the ultimate in exclusive luxury island resorts, a private haven for only those deemed worthy enough to attend.


Landon Verger is a titan of industry and the founder of Paradise. The resort’s opening weekend should have been a celebration of wealth and excess, but without warning, it has gone silent.

Sam Verger knows his father only too well; the great man casts a long and dark shadow. He also knows that Landon Verger’s enemy list is long and varied, any one of which would love to see his father dead. Sam seeks to employ a professional to investigate the island, and Mac is one such woman.

An ex-military officer, she works dirty jobs and doesn't ask questions if the money's right. With her like-minded team, they travel to Paradise. Mac thought she’d seen everything that death had to offer, but she was wrong. What started out as a simple mission will quickly become the most desperate fight for survival she’s ever faced. There’s only one thing that she’s sure of: not everyone is getting out alive.

Review


I love a good fantasy that covers all the basic elements- great characters, a great plot and drama and this book has all three. Mac is a rough around the edges, take charge female that believes in trustworthiness.  She and her team are set on a mission to investigate a resort but unfortunately things don’t go as plan for them. Zombies run rampant and must be stopped by any means necessary. Fortunately for us it makes for an amazing read.


The plot is strong and the characters are well developed. This book is not for faint-of-heart. It’s a thrilling action packed adventure. This book lives in the heart of horror. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read.
