Watching by JM Thorne


They come to see us bleed.
Roo is trapped in a performance nightmare, where the longer he survives, the greater the chance he will have to remind the other men, that they have a chance to fight against their alien captives.

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with this title as Watching‘s blurb doesn’t offer all that much in terms of a synopsis, but it ended up being a genuinely enjoyable read all the same, maybe even more so because I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. That being said, I am going to go into a little more information below, so if you don’t want to know the details, just know that I’d absolutely recommend this book for fans of dark science fiction.

Roo has been captured by a race of blood thirsty aliens who are keeping him as some sort of twisted pet, expecting both entertainment and blood. Of course, things would be a little boring if it weren’t for Roo’s spirit and desire to fight back. He’s in a fairly bleak situation, so it’s an interesting journey to follow that will at times have you frantically turning pages to find out who makes it to the end of the book.

This is a fairly quick read and I do wish there was a little more to the story. Still, as far as one-sitting reads go, you can’t go wrong with this one!
