Why have I not read any books by Casey Kelleher before! A huge mistake on my part, that I have now rectified by reading No Escape. Wow, what an introduction to Casey’s work. I was completely blown away by this book which is raw, gritty and one that I could not get enough of!
Casey has crafted a thrilling plot that makes it almost impossible to put the book down once you start. I was gripped right from the harrowing prologue, which certainly gets the heart racing and sets the tone for the rest of the story. It also captures the seedier and darker side of central London and its gangs, which has all been brought to life through the pages perfectly and realistically.
Casey has done a phenomenal job with the characters in this story. They are a diverse bunch that are very well rounded and developed. A mix of likeable and unlikable, each play out their role perfectly. It goes without saying the standout was definitely Lucy who carries the story on her shoulders well and is one character I would love to see featured again.
The ease of which I was able to settle in to this book was great. I can easily get distracted when I’m reading, but Casey had my full attention, drawing me into this world she has created. I was so engaged and felt like I was part of the story watching it all unfold on the sidelines, which is such a credit to Casey’s writing which I loved.
There is “No Escape’’ from this book! It is a fast paced, action packed read the keeps you on the edge of your seat and glued to the pages, as Casey takes you on a wild ride with that is filled with twists and turns aplenty. You have a new fan in me Casey and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next. It was a pleasure to read and review No Escape which I highly recommend.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Casey Kelleher for allowing me to read an advanced copy of No Escape which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
