#BlogBlitz: No Ordinary Girl by Cheryl Elaine @CherylElaine15 @rararesources #NoOrdinaryGirl

Welcome to the Blog Blitz for No Ordinary Girl by Cheryl Elaine. My thanks to the author and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for the review copy and inviting me to review it today. If you are tempted you can purchase your own copy here, or see the end of this post as there is a giveaway running internationally.

What started out as a night of celebration for Aimee soon turned into a nightmare. Snatched by cruel, sadistic monsters - the worst creatures mankind has ever produced - she’s thrown into a metal container, among other victims too frightened to make a single sound.

The game-keepers force everyone to play. They deliver torment and pain in equal measure. Every hunter has their own agenda and reasons to maim and torture.

Detective Johnson is one step away from catching the killers. Wrestling with his instincts as a father to serve justice his own way, this is no ordinary case for him. Can he stop the vile sadists before they damage more young girls, as well as his own daughter?

Aimee’s ordeal within the compound brings her to the conclusion that she’s no ordinary girl. But can she hang onto her sanity long enough to escape? And will she find a different way to play?

This crime thriller will keep you riveted. It’s no ordinary story.


Please note: contains graphic content.

My Thoughts:

No Ordinary Girl comes with the disclaimer that it contains graphic content and that it does, so if you are of a sensitive disposition then this may not be the one for you. I however was hooked and read it in one sitting. I am not really one for horror films as I usually watch them from behind a cushion, however this book read very much like a script to me and had a cinematic feel to it. 

There is gang of depraved people catering for the 'needs' of even more depraved people. Young people are going missing from nights out or country walks never to be seen again. The reality is that they are being stolen to order and treated in a dreadful and appalling manner, none of which we are spared during this books pages. 

It seemed that money and power meant that the 'hunters' felt that they had the right to indulge their deepest and most revolting desires and that other people and their lives are just toys and playthings and that they are just there to pander to them.

I did find this book shocking, and yes I did wriggle in my seat unconfortably a few times. However I found it utterly engrossing with a interesting plotline and the characters were all fully formed and came alive in my head. 

Certainly an original story that I found to be gripping, dark and disturbing. I am glad that I read it.
