Today I'm taking part in the blog tour for The Players by Darren O'Sullivan, a fantastic and very unique psychological thriller which I kindly received an e-arc copy to review from HQ books*. If you love thriller books, you are 100% going to want to check this one out because you've probably never read anything like it before!

What Is The Players About?

A stranger has you cornered.
They call themselves The Host.
You are forced to play their game.
In it one person can live and the other must die.

You are the next player.
You have a choice to make.
This is a game where nobody wins…

What I Liked About The Players:

The Players is probably one of the best thrillers I've read so far this year! The concept of this book is fantastic. If you love books which focus on dark or twisted games, then you will love this book.

The writing style was fantastic. It kept me hooked till the very end. It was really well paced and full of a lot of action which kept me gripped. 

I found myself constantly trying to guess where the book was going but I still did not see the ending coming. 

This book focused on some really interesting ethical issues, which I really liked as it made me think about the book and the message it was conveying.

What Did I Not Like About The Players:

I did not have any issues with this book at all. I thought it was fantastic and could not find any problems. 

Who Do I Recommend The Players to:

I recommend The Players to anyone who loves a suspenseful and gripping psychological thriller, you will not be let down with this book.

Even if you have read a lot of thrillers, like me, I still recommend this book to you because of how unique and different it is. I doubt if you've read anything like it before.

I would give trigger warnings for murder, suicide. violence and gore, so if those are topics you struggle to read maybe give this one a miss. 

Overall Thoughts:

Overall, this is one of the most unique and interesting thrillers I have read in a while. It kept me hooked throughout and made me think as well, which I really enjoyed. Highly recommend! 4 stars! 

The Players comes out on the 13th May 2021
