In this heart-stopping suspense thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong proves herself to be a master of terror and suspense.

Riley Vasquez is haunted by the brutal murder of the couple she was babysitting for.

Max Cross is suffering under the shadow of a life-altering diagnosis he doesn’t dare reveal.

The last thing either of them wants is to spend a weekend away at a therapy camp alongside five other teens with “issues.” But that’s exactly where they are when three masked men burst in to take the group hostage.

The building has no windows. The exits are sealed shut. Their phones are gone. And their captors are on a killing spree.

Riley and Max know that if they can’t get out, they’ll be next—but they’re about to discover that even escape doesn’t equal freedom.

My Thoughts




This book is a huge step away from the usual paranormal Y.A that I usually read, in fact this is the first Thriller Y.A I have read for a while, but being Kelley Armstrong that has written it I had to pick it up. Boy was I glad.

The Masked Truth really is a action packed, unpredictable thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Riley was babysitting when the unthinkable happens, men break in and murder the parents in cold blood while Riley hides under the bed with the child. haunted by this Riley attends group therapy.

Max also attends group therapy but for a mental illness that will never be cured only managed that he keeps to himself.

Max and Riley are forced to spend a weekend in group therapy with other kids they don’t know each with their own problems. Things go bad when shortly after arriving men in masks arrive to kidnap the teens and councillors for money.

What I love about this book is the twists and turns, in the plot you are literally on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next and trying to piece together the facts before the protagonists do. The fact that I could not work out what will happen next or even if it really is happening after all we are dealing with numerous disturbed teens here.  I found this to be a refreshing change from other thriller books that can be predictable, just as you think you have it worked out you get another curve ball.

I highly recommend this book, pre order is available now on Amazon, I am not affiliated but it is just that good.
