The Assassin GameWho will be left after lights out?

At Cate’s isolated boarding school, Killer is more than a game- it’s an elite secret society. Members must avoid being “Killed” during a series of thrilling pranks, and only the Game Master knows who the “Killer” is. When Cate’s finally invited to join the Assassins’ Guild, she know it’s her ticket to finally feeling like she belongs.

But when the game becomes all too real, the school threatens to shut it down. Cate will do anything to keep playing and save the Guild. But can she find the real assassin before she’s the next target?

Why I’m Waiting

I love playing the party version of this game with friends (no one is harmed while playing this game). So of course I want to read about a real life version. It sounds equal bits thrilling and terrifying!

What has you guys waiting this week? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

Sig New

    • Yes! You don’t actually kill people though. You sit in a circle. One person is the moderator of the game, one person is the assassin and the rest are the civilians. Every round you close your eyes and the assassin picks someone to kill. Then the civilians that are still alive must try to guess who the assassin is. Each round they make one collective guess. Only the mod knows who the assassin is. If they guess correctly the civilians win. If the assassin kills off all the civilians then he/she wins. It’s a game of trust, lies, and ultimately fun dectective work haha

  1. What the heck, this sounds so cool *adds it to TBR* I’m such a sucker for books revolving around “elite” societies and groups- idk, I just find them so fascinating. And is it just me or do new releases have really unique and eye-catching covers?
