Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards.
Dan is a professional ghost hunter who’s never actually found a ghost. But his newest case is promising: a cursed Russian rifle (allegedly) haunted by a demon. According to legend, anyone who touches the antique weapon dies within 24 hours. But for Dan, it’s personal — he’s still mourning the death of his fiancée Adelaide, and he’s desperate to find proof that spirits exist. At any cost.
As the clock ticks down, Dan’s paranormal investigation quickly twists into a mind-bending nightmare. He is stalked through time and memory by a terrifying (and very real) demon. And as for his lost love, Adelaide? She might be the only one who can save him . . .
Thank you, Netgalley and Taylor Adams for providing me this book. It took me too long for the review but it’s better late than never, right?
One Last Night is about Dan, a ghost-hunter who have never seen a ghost! He badly wants to see one so he tracked and purchased a gun that when touched will shorten your lifespan into 24 hours. Well, he touched it. He’s desperate to see spirits now he’s desperate to survive.
This was such an amazing book! I was engrossed to read the book just because of its introduction. I LOVE everything in this book: the characters, the plot, the scenery, the writing. EVERYTHING.
The characters are great, especially Dan. I love his YOLO vibe. He’s basically YOLO-ing all throughout the book. I also dig his humor that is sometimes out of place. Like, we’re-about-to-die-but-I-really-need-to-make-a-joke. THE BEST. I was frightened but I cannot help but laugh at those scenes.
I can’t really say it’s visually pleasing because the scenes were terrifying! Like there would be a jump scare any moment. My heart was beating so fast. SO FAST! Oh my god. Not to mention the countdown. The freakin’ 24-hour countdown!
I have to admit, this was supposed to be a 4-star rating because of some dragging scenes. But since I loved how it made me feel enthralled and how it shocked me by how it ended, I gave it one more star.
This book is a perfect read for those who love thriller and some gory scenes and the freaking time traveling. Hmm. Yes. Oh, this book also has a love story that is not so cheesy.
