A group of people camping on an island (which they believe to be uninhabited) fall victim to a mad scientist, his Igor-type henchman and a number of mutant cannibals (yeah, right). The story basically consists of them getting picked off one by one, by stabbing, shooting, roasting, torture, and being chewed on by the cannibals. There's enough screaming going on to be heard from outer space, and the author struggles manfully to find sufficient adjectives to describe the amount of excruciating, agonising, unbearable, unbelievable, insanity-inducing pain they all suffer prior to their demise.

It's kind of fun in a daft way, even though the plot is slightly less credible than the existence of Santa Claus, but the author should learn that less is more when it comes to horror; too much torture and pain and death tends to blunt the senses. By the end, I couldn't care less who was doing what to whom, provided they all just shut up and got on with it.

Ever since I read Jack Kilborn's debut novel 'Afraid' I have been eagerly awaiting a follow up.
It seemed that Trapped was never going to get published as planned so I was delighted to find it available as an e-book (AND the follow on from that, 'Endurance' which I shall also review).

I can only say the wait was worth it! Kilborn writes the most breathlessly exciting and, yes, extremely nasty, books I have ever read. I defy anyone, after the first few chapters, to put one of them down! He uses a very clever 'cliffhanger' device at the end of most chapters that just keeps the pages turning well into the wee hours!

With Trapped - a very loose sequel/prequel to 'Afraid' - we are presented with a very simple premise of a group of 'difficult' teens who've been taken away to a remote island for a survival weekend by their counsellors/guardians, Sara and Martin.

After Martin tells a scary campfire story about a hidden civil war prison and a history involving cannibalistic Confederate soldiers he abruptly goes missing in the woods.

Thinking it's a prank, no one is too concerned. But when Martin fails to return and the kids split up to go looking for him, then the horror really begins and their 'survival' weekend takes on a very literal meaning...

From this point Kilborn launches us on a horrific roller coaster ride encompassing cannibals, traps, mad scientists, torture, page turning suspense and two VERY scary villains in the guises of 'Subject 33' and the towering, terrifying, sharp toothed 'Lester'. Oh, and a LOT of gore!

It may sound very far fetched but Kilborn's great skill is in making this crazy stuff seem very believable.

What I like about this author is that whilst his stories are extremely far-fetched, he captivates you with his writing, and you can actually believe you're right there with the characters. I liked the style of this book. Rather than tell the story of each character before any action happens, he breaks up the action with a little background of each one. That sometimes came as a much needed breather from the violence and gore.

I really found myself cringing at a lot of parts here, and I got so immersed. Almost every scene was left with a cliff-hanger before cutting to another character's situation, and I really wanted to know what was going to happen.

Great escapism, and a great read! I haven't read the original version yet, I'll read something else before I do that so as not to get too familiar with it.

Crime thrillers are my normal reading, but whilst browsing I came across reviews of Jack Kilborn's novels. The overview of Trapped, the warning that the publisher refused to publish it in its original draft (which the author has included as a bonus in this edition) had me intrigued and before I knew it my curiosity had got the better of me and it was on my Kindle.

Six teenagers who got on the wrong side of the law and are now living in care, are taken to a remote deserted island on a camping trip, a chance for some team-building and bonding along with their guardians Martin and Sarah. Their first night on the island starts well enough; roasting marshmallows on the campfire, telling scary stories, it's all pretty normal...until they find they're not alone.

This book terrified me, I was completely drawn in, horrified but at the same time I couldn't put it down, having to read on to find out what happened next. The characters were well written with each teenager having their own personality and being very individual, to write about the other characters would spoil the plot but the menace and terror of them was well depicted.

The plot races along and kept me hooked from start to finish. When I got to the end I was unsure whether I wanted to read the uncut version but found I just couldn't resist seeing what had been cut for the final version. Amazingly I thought the draft uncut version was better, I preferred the Chinese angle and didn't miss the character that was missing in the final version. The only part of the final version that I thought was an improvement was the ending.

Would I recommend it? It's terrifying, gory and stopped me from sleeping, that said... I loved it! Would I read more by the same author? Not sure....
