Welcome to this weeks #BWW this week we have this creepy looking thriller!

It’s too late for you. You’re dead. Those words continue to haunt Claire Cain months after she barely survived a brutal beating in Chicago. So when her father is offered a job in another state, Claire is hopeful that getting out will offer her a way to start anew.

But when she arrives in Peculiar, Missouri, Claire feels an overwhelming sense of danger, and her fears are confirmed when she discovers the body of a popular high school student in the icy woods behind the school, surrounded by the town’s feral cats. While everyone is quick to say it was an accident, Claire knows there’s more to it, and vows to learn the truth about what happened. 

But the closer she gets to uncovering the mystery, the closer she also gets to realizing a frightening reality about herself and the damage she truly sustained in that Chicago alley….

Reviews of Feral:

Psychological thrillers always intrigue me so when I first seen this, I knew it was one that I was going to have to read. It sounded so sinister and the feral cat aspect just made it seem even more creepy so I was looking forward to picking it up.

My initial thoughts on finishing Feral was to shiver because wow those cats were freaky!! Then it was to be in awe of the authors mind. This book was just mind boggling!!

"Feral" maintains its power over readers, much like those horror movies of which teens are so fond, through its psychological hold. Whether Claire is going crazy or is the victim of sinister events is what makes the story really work.
