The Killing Woods

Posted by Book Hooked at 5:33 PM


“Emily’s dad is accused of murdering a teenage girl. Emily is sure he is innocent, but what happened that night in the woods behind their house where she used to play as a child? Determined to find out, she seeks out Damon Hillary, the enigmatic boyfriend of the murdered girl. He also knows these woods. Maybe they could help each other. But he’s got secrets of his own about games that are played in the dark.

A new psychological thriller from the award-winning and bestselling author of STOLEN and FLYAWAY.” (Taken from; Good Reads)


The Killing Woods has two different points of views; Emily’s and Damon’s.

Emily is the daughter of the man accused of murdering a teenager. Throughout the story you see how keen and certain she is that her father didn't murder Ashley. But her word isn't enough, she needs to find proof so other people believe her. Therefore, she decides to go to the woods were Ashley was killed.

Damon was Ashley’s boyfriend. He wakes up the day after Ashley's death without a clue of what happened the night before. He is only certain of one thing; that he was with her that night.
First off, I've got to admit I feel a little conflicted with this book, given the praise that is constantly given to “Stolen”. I had high expectations of this book. I’m not saying I didn't like, it was an okay read. I just have a couple of things to say;

1) I didn't like how Damon’s character was only thinking about sex. I mean, I know he is a guy and everything but it was a little too much.

2)  In my opinion, Ashley’s killer was obvious after the second half of the book. But even though I knew who the person was the way in which he/she did it came as a surprise.
