Book Review: Zero by Morgan Dark

Hey my lovelies, this weeks book review does not include any spoilers and it is Zero by Morgan Dark, I received Zero for free in exchange for an honest review, thanks to Rubiños 1860.

Goodreads Summary: A baffling robber. A mystery hidden for years. And an elite boarding school where no one is who they say they are. Kyle Bradford is the envy of Drayton College, but everything takes a turn when a dangerous shadow, hidden in the darkness, starts to stalk him. From then on, his life falls apart. Unjustly accused of being the main suspect behind the robberies terrifying high society, he is forced to prove his innocence. And to do so, he has to find the real culprit: Zero, an infallible criminal who keeps his identity hidden under a silver mask. What Kyle does not know is that his enemy is keeping a secret. A secret he would sacrifice everything for. A dizzying, heart-stopping thriller you won’t be able to put down.


This book definitely grips you from the start, as straight away we are thrown into the middle of the action with the notorious thief Zero robbing a necklace at an Opera house, with him/her barely escaping from the police. At this stage nobody knows who Zero is or why he is stealing, what he is stealing. Then in the first chapter we meet Kyle Bradford our main character and antagonist, it follows him returning to the elite boarding school where he lives, there he begins to be antagonised by the one we know as Zero, who is setting him up by ensuring robberies begin taking place in Kyle's classes, making him look like the prime suspect. So it also deals with Kyle attempting to find out who Zero is and why he possibly could be framing him. The book then delves into the secrets of all our main characters pasts, leading you on some unexpected journeys. 

This book went nowhere near where i expected it to go. As at four different stages I realised that it wasn't the story i expected it to be at that point and the book just kept me hanging on the edge of my seat. Not gonna lie I guessed one of the plot twists quite early on, however I believe that it was intentional that we guess and find out that one, as I believe it was working on the strategy that if you think you've found the major plot twist, which is a very clever thing to do in order to get a upper hand on your reader. And trust me some of these plot twists, make you sit there and think wow. How did we get here?


I enjoyed the general writing and the only fault I found with it was that at the very beginning of the book the writing came of as slightly middle grade, however I found this developed more as the characters themselves developed, which makes me think this could have been intentional, So do not let the very beginnings writing, put you off, even though I am unsure of how that could happen as you pretty much get sucked in straight away. The actual book is split into four parts, with the first three parts split into finding out who Zero is and the final part revealing who Zero really is and why he/she does steal and the motives behind everything. 


In conclusion, this book totally blew my mind, and I did not expect that ending at all, and if you want to read a book that will completely blow your mind read it now. It was so amazing and I am now excited to read the next book in the series (I assume there is going to be more books as there were some questions left unanswered). This review is slightly shorter than my normal reviews, however due to spoiler reasons I cannot give an in depth analysis of the characters, however trust me when I say nothing is ever what it seems. 

Recommend ....

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys good fast paced thrillers with plot twists at every turn.
