    Editors Select, July 2017

    The first few chapters of Final Girls reminded me a bit of Gillian Flynn's Dark Places, as we're introduced to Quincy, who, 10 years earlier, was the sole survivor of a gruesome, horror movie-esque killing spree in the woods. And other than a perhaps slight dependence on Xanax and a small penchant for stealing, Quincy seems to have her life back, with a serious boyfriend and a small baking business to attest. But as Riley Sager's novel unfolds, I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat, knowing something even more terrible was just around the corner. This addicting listen was made all the more incredible with dual narration from Erin Bennett and Hillary Huber. And when you find out just why two narrators were cast, you'll be totally freaked out. —Laura, Audible Editor

    The national and international best seller

    Winner of the 2018 International Thriller Writers Award for best hardcover novel

    “The first great thriller of 2017 is here: Final Girls, by Riley Sager. If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll like this.” (Stephen King)

    Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to - a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls: Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout's knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them and, with that, one another. Despite the media's attempts, they never meet. 

    Now Quincy is doing well - maybe even great, thanks to her Xanax prescription. She has a caring almost-fiancé, Jeff; a popular baking blog; a beautiful apartment; and a therapeutic presence in Coop, the police officer who saved her life all those years ago. Her memory won't even allow her to recall the events of that night; the past is in the past. 

    That is until Lisa, the first Final Girl, is found dead in her bathtub, wrists slit, and Sam, the second, appears on Quincy's doorstep. Blowing through Quincy's life like a whirlwind, Sam seems intent on making Quincy relive the past, with increasingly dire consequences, all of which makes Quincy question why Sam is really seeking her out. And when new details about Lisa's death come to light, Quincy's life becomes a race against time as she tries to unravel Sam's truths from her lies, evade the police and hungry reporters, and, most crucially, remember what really happened at Pine Cottage, before what was started 10 years ago is finished.

    "The first great thriller of 2017 is almost here: Final Girls, by Riley Sager. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll like this." (Stephen King)
    "Narrators Erin Bennett and Hillary Huber partner beautifully in this gripping psychological thriller... Both narrators add intensity and drama to the mystery and to the personality of each survivor." ( AudioFile)

    Mind blowing suspense-thriller at its best.

    FINAL GIRLS by Riley Sager. A breathtaking suspense-thriller like no other that literally jolted me out of my out of my seat.
    Three girls, Lisa, Sam and Quincy, sole survivors of separate gruesome massacres, whom the press branded as the Final Girls.
    10 years past, Quincy, is doing well. Until Lisa, was found dead in a bathtub with her wrist slit. Out of the blues, Sam came to Quincy's door like a whirlwind. Determined to make Quincy retrieve her memory loss of the details of Quincy's horrific ordeal in that Pine Cottage massacre. And so begins the dire consequences, doubts, suspicions....especially when new details surfaced about Lisa's cause of death. And so its a race against time for Quincy to find the truth and the lies about Sam. And to remember her own truth of what really happened in the massacre where 5 of her friends were killed, casting her own doubts about her innocence.

    This was one of the fiercest books I've ever listened to. There are multiple prime twists in this story that are very interesting, and had an intense psychological layer that's really riveting to see come to light.
    Final Girls was anything but predictable and not a novel that I was able to predict the ending. It had a nice pace...slow at first but I appreciated that they didn't rush into important plots as I loved how they were building up the characters and the story.
    The narration and voice-acting were compelling. It was raw and intense. I praise the talents of the narrators, Erin Bennett and Hillary Huber for their acting performances. Boosting the personalities of each characters, the drama and intensity of the story. It was an addicting audiobook to listen to. Big 5☆ for an "award-winning" voice-acting performances and narration.
    If you are to read the novel, get the Audiobook! It's guaranteed to give you the thrill and suspense in double form. This is my 2nd audiobook of Riley Sager and one of the best 5☆ thrillers I've listened to. MUST LISTEN before you die.
