Publisher's Summary

The beach story you have been dying for! When ten of America's hottest teenage influencers are invited to an exclusive island resort, things are sure to get wild. But murder isn't what anyone expected. Will anyone survive?

Everyone knows Unknown Island—it’s the world’s most exclusive destination. Think white sand beaches, turquoise seas, and luxury accommodations. Plus, it’s invite only, no one over twenty-one allowed, and it’s absolutely free. Who wouldn’t want to go?

The mysterious resort launched with a viral marketing campaign, and now the whole world is watching as the mysterious resort opens its doors to the First Ten, the ten elite influencers specifically chosen to be the first to experience everything Unknown Island has to offer. You know them. There’s the gamer, the beauty blogger, the rich girl, the superstar, the junior politician, the environmentalist, the DJ, the CEO, the chef, and the athlete.

What they don’t know is that they weren’t invited to Unknown Island for their following—they were invited for their secrets. Everyone is hiding a deadly one, and it looks like someone’s decided it’s payback time. Unknown Island isn’t a vacation, it’s a trap. And it’s beginning to look like the First Ten—no matter how influential—are never coming home.

Couldn’t pause!

The characters are compelling and the suspense kept me listening to the exclusion of all else.

Great Plot - But Narration Wasn't Good

The story and premise was great. It was fast-paced and full of action which kept me guessing the whole time... HOWEVER, with the multiple POV's the narrator was not great at distinguishing which character we were on. I often had to rewind because it sounded like we were still on one character, when we were on a completely different one. (That was part of the guessing)! The narration took away from the story and this could have been a 5-star for me. If I read the physical copy I might up my rating.
