Castaways, by Brian Keene, is the perfect novel for those tired of the backstabbing, petty, and emotionally insecure reality TV stars. His solution: dump them on an island in the path of a hurricane, add some monsters and enjoy. And enjoy you will! Brian Keene is one of the best in the horror business these days, and his latest doesn't disappoint. From official release/information:
They came to the lush, deserted island to compete on a popular reality TV show. Each one hoped to be the last to leave. Now they're just hoping to stay alive. It seems the island isn't deserted after all. Contestants and crew members are disappearing, but they aren't being eliminated by the game. They're being taken by the monstrous half-human creatures that live in the jungle. The men will be slaughtered. The women will be kept alive as captives. Night is falling, the creatures are coming, and rescue is so far away...
