Rich, handsome, and intelligent, Markham Savoy rules the roost at Coleham Academy. He can make problems disappear - in return for a favour. But just why is Markham collecting so many favours, and when will he call them in?
Twist Literary caught my attention when I reviewed their debut release Alibi. They're putting out fast-paced serial novels consisting of a story told from several different characters' points of view, one in each book, with edgy, tantalising content.
This is in a similar vein to Alibi, with rich characters (in both senses of the word!), lots of secrets, and a very readable writing style which makes it easy to gallop through. Markham is a brilliant main character, very manipulative but still fairly likeable, and I also thought Piper, the one girl who may just be a match for Markham, was really great. The book ends on a cliffhanger, as you'd expect from a serial novel, which has got me eagerly awaiting book two, Dane's Addiction (especially since it's written by Sorrel Provola who wrote the excellent final part to Alibi.)
Definitely worth reading, and an absolute steal on Kindle for the bargain price of £1.28 - particularly if you're a fan of the kind of book like Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars, which is the audience this is aiming at.
