5 Star #Review #Giveaway of Killer Instinct (Killer Instinct #1) by @SEGreenAuthor

A teen girl version of Dexter meets the high stakes danger and mystery of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in this “dark and disturbing--high stakes thriller..." (#1 New York Times bestselling author, Kami Garcia)

Lane is a typical teenager. Loving family. Good grades. After-school job at the local animal hospital. Martial arts enthusiast. But her secret obsession is studying serial killers. She understands them, knows what makes them tick.

Why?

Because she might be one herself.

Lane channels her dark impulses by hunting criminals and delivering justice when the law fails. The vigilantism stops shy of murder, but with each visceral rush, the line of self-control blurs. And when a young preschool teacher goes missing—and returns in pieces—Lane gets a little too excited about tracking down “the Decapitator,” the vicious serial murderer who has come to her hometown.

As she gets dangerously caught up in a web of lies about her own past, Lane realizes she is no longer invisible or safe. Especially after the Decapitator contacts her directly. Now she needs to use her unique talents to find the true killer’s identity before she—or someone she loves—becomes the next victim…
 About the Author

Biography

S. E. Green, or Shannon Greenland, is the award winning author of the thriller, KILLER INSTINCT, the spy series, THE SPECIALISTS, and the romance, THE SUMMER MY LIFE BEGAN. She lives off the coast of Florida with her very grouchy dog.


This one for lack of a better word was KILLER!!!  

I have to say that the first time Lane went after someone I cheered!  Now I would have prob. castrated the guy.  I mean I'm sorry (I'm really not) you rape multi women you deserve it.  That being said.  This book is def. for the older teen.  It covers some pretty gruesome stuff. 

And it was beyond amazing!!!  

This would make a killer (pun intended) tv series man!!!! 

Ok so the story itself was so good.  Things unfold slowly but fast in this 288 page masterpiece!  
There is one MAJOR twist at the end I so didn't see it coming!  Which if you follow this site, that almost never happens.  I can smell a twist from 100 pages away.  

But this one was so out of left field that I just didn't see it! 

The characters are also wonderful!  I mean you have two parents that work for the FBI (how cool is that), then you have the kids.  Lane's sister is great and bubbly and kinda a slut (but that works itself out so don't worry) she is the complete opposite of Lane in almost every way.  Then you have their brother who is also awesome! He is special needs just in the fact that he is a little slow.  And he always brings out Lane's inner goodness. The one thing that Lane and her sister double up on is their love for their brother.   Then of course you have Lane the with yes killer instinct lol.  She isn't always a great teen role model. (staying out late, stealing meds, and of course being a vigilante. But, hey no ones perfect!) 

!!!!!SO!!!!!
Want to explore the psychology of serial killers?  
What a read where the perpetrators of crimes committed get their just deserts? 
Want to know if Lane is really a serial killer herself?
Want to see fussy little animals kept safe from bad bad people?
Want to a read where you won't see the ending coming?
 Then this is deff. a pick for you!
