✫.•° About The Book °•.✫
‘Bright Lights’ AJ Starr is a pro wrestler on the rise, and his life is about to change forever. Knowing this, he plans one last party with all of his best friends. The venue? Saxon Hills theme park, abandoned ten years ago after its flagship ride burned down and killed nine innocent people. Some people say the place is haunted, but AJ knows from his time inside the squared circle that fantasy and reality are totally separate things.
Or so he thought.
AJ has no idea how nightmarish things are about to get, and eventually he’ll be left wondering whether he brought his friends to Saxon Hills theme park to have fun. Or to die.

I came across this author on Facebook, you know the sponsored posts; it was one of them. I got Dark Ride free by signing up for Iain’s mailing list. As much as I have a huge TBR list I pushed this to the top because of its genre, horror! I love a good horror book and it has been a while since I read a good one. Dark Ride however is a good creepy horror book.
It is set in an eerie, deserted, abandoned amusement park. Where a group of friends choose to spend an evening together inside one of its old rides. Which ride? Only the ride that caused the amusement park all its problems, the ride where people had died, as any sane person would do! Honestly, what could possibly go wrong? (I am not going to tell you that’s for sure)!
I feel that this author has done a pretty good job of creating characters that are realistic and will pull you into their world very easily, the big question is: Do you want to be part of their world? Given the situations that these characters are faced with I would say they handled them well; I don’t know what I’d do in their positions that’s for sure. They interact well together and occasionally they rub each other the wrong way causing friction too.
The plot is structured, it flows smoothly and is fairly quick paced. The events are set up by the author well and lead onto the next part almost effortlessly. The detail given allows a clear; sometimes maybe a little too clear; mental image to form as you are reading. The way Dark Ride is written will make you feel like you’re on an amusement ride too; the start draws you into your seat and clamps the lap bar down, then it takes off into the twists and turns, never slowing or stopping to let you off.
I devoured this book and have now snuck another of Iain Rob Wrights books to the top of my TBR list, a small confession; I’m hooked on that one too.
I’m glad I spotted this authors sponsored post on Facebook now, else I might never have discovered these creepy worlds that he has created!
