Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC!

The premise of this really drew me in, but I had a hard time getting invested into the story. The characters felt relatively surface level, and the resolution to a lot of the "drama" felt convenient. There were some scenes that really were great, but a lot of them kind of just dragged.

More like 2 1/2 stars for me. I probably wouldn't have finished this book if not for the fact that i out it on my classroom Kindle. I really was not that fond of the characters and have read much better dystopian books. It wasn't terrible but the story was constantly pulling me out of the flow when the characters did something not so smart.

This was a great book! When I saw that this book was described as a Japanese-inspired Jumanji, I knew that I had to get my hands on it. I was hooked by this story right away and found myself trying to carve out extra reading time in my day just to get back to the book a little faster. I loved the fact that the story was brutal at times and the setting was incredibly unique.

Madeline, Emerson, Owen, Dax, and Ian were best friends until things went horribly wrong during a game that left Ian missing and presumed dead. They are brought together again four years later after they see a vision of their lost friend. Realizing their friend may not be dead, they go back to the place where they lost him and are thrust back into a game that is more dangerous than they could ever imagine.

The story is told from 4 main points of view and I loved getting to see things from each of the main character’s perspectives. The odds were definitely stacked against this group of characters since the world they found themselves in was horrific at times. I was impressed by the fact that there were some pretty big surprises worked into this story that I did not see coming. It was great seeing the relationships between these characters strengthen over the course of the story.

I would recommend this book to others. I was captivated by this entertaining novel with great characters and a perfectly creepy tone. I felt like the Japanese folklore added a wonderful element to this story. I hope to read more of this author’s work very soon.

I received a review copy of this book from Tor Teen.
