The Retreat Reviews

  • Mackenzie - Traveling Sister

    Haunting!!! Don’t read this book alone at night unless you keep the lights on!!!

    See my reviews here!

    This is my first book by Mark Edwards and I absolutely loved it! I wasn’t sure what the genre would be at first, because it has such a tone of the supernatural about it. I think it is best for readers to just let it unfold. I didn’t know which genre it would be, and I liked it all the better for the intrigue it held in that regard. I loved the theme of possibility—the notion that what we believe

    3.5*

    This is one of those books that either works for you and you’ll absolutely love it, or it’s going to leave you scratching your head. Well from my rating you can see where I landed.

    A writers retreat. Time to get away from the crazy city and all the pressures bearing down on you. An opportunity to concentrate on your work in progress, perhaps even wrapping it all up before that looming deadline.

    But when Lucas finally arrives at the retreat, he’s greeted with anything but the Zen peacefulness

  • Melisa - Traveling Sister

    A heart pounding, atmospheric, rip roaring good mystery!

    Mark Edwards is so thorough and detailed with his plotting - his stories are intricately detailed and they are always tightly wound with no stone left unturned.

    Full of spooky folklore and legends and scary ghost stories, this one definitely had me jumping at the slightest sounds and turning on all the lights in the house.

    I had no idea how this story was going to unfold, and I’m happy to say that I enjoyed where it ended up. Well done, sir

    After reading the fabulous The Devil's Work and The Lucky Ones was I really looking forward to reading The Retreat. The creepy cover and blurb added to my eagerness. A missing child and an old house with secrets? Count me in!

    The Retreat is one of those books that have all the ingredients I like when it comes to thrillers, a mystery, a group of people that don't know each other and a place with a history of troublesome events. Unfortunately, the story never got more than OK for me which trust m

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Mark Edwards, Amazon Publishing, and Thomas & Mercer for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.

    In his latest thriller, Mark Edwards adds a degree of the paranormal while also creating a mystery that will keep the reader guessing. Lucas Radcliffe is still riding the wave of his latest bestseller, exploring a number of missing children who were taking by a mysterious beast. Seekin
